Windows 7: Trouble erasing Win 8 from hp laptop

08 Apr 2013   #21

64 bit Win 8

I want to thank everyone that has chimed in and offered their help. Its proving to be more than I want to take a chance on and possibly foul up my computer beyond reasonable repair. This is deeper than I want to go. I'm going to turn the headache over to qualified shop. Thank you again, you have been very generous with your time and knowledge. I wish all of you all the best in life.
