Windows 7: Windows 7 crashes frequently

Windows 7 crashes frequently

since sometime saturday, my laptop (hp g60 if that helps) has been frequently crashing. i believe updates were installed on friday night. yesterday, i went to go to system restore, and pick the may 19th backup to restore to, but it froze before i could pick it -_- and i just gave up and waited until today. but as i went to go restore a while ago, the back ups that were shown yesterday no longer appear. the hard drive failed and was replaced about a month and a half ago (SMART error i believe) and it has been working fine until saturday. the freezing has only gotten worse today, currently i am trying to watch a film for history class and my laptop freezes every 10 or 15 minutes, requiring me to restart the computer manually. can anyone help? thanks

Windows 7 64
unable to uninstall/restore windows after crashes

my laptop (hp g62 notebook) has been every few minutes since saturday, and i'm trying to restore windows 7 on it. a while ago i was trying to see why it was crashing, but now i would just like to do a complete reinstall. however, i got the hard drive replaced a month and a half ago, and i no longer have the hp recovery manager program, which is the only way i can reinstall windows without a disc. i have tried to redownload it, but i have been told it cannot be downloaded and installed. i cant install with a disc as i have none, and have no more options. can anyone help?

also, the computer seems to work fine in safe mode with networking, which is what i'm using right now.
