you're faced with a full recovery either by using a recovery disc
Is there any way to download it, or I have to buy it? Because, I don't have Windows 7 installation disc...

Hello.



After you have copied out or made back-ups of the data you need to save to external media; if you can find an exact Windows version that the PC shipped with you can do a clean install using the activation key on the COA sticker attached to the PC though it may require a robo-call to MS to sort the OEM batch-key.

How to Activate Windows 7 by Phone


If you can't find an exact same version, you could use the info in this tutorial to create an "all versions" installer of any version Windows installer, to install using the same method I posted above.

Windows 7 Universal Installation Disc - Create


After you have made backups of everything you care to save, the best method is to do a complete wipe (secure erase) of the entire Hard Disk Drive first, it over-writes everything, all the old Windows code including all the old drivers/programs, giving you the best possible space to install Windows to.

Do you know anyone who has a Windows 7 DVD? If so you can re-install using the OEM Product Key supplied with your computer.

It's not possible to do that for me. I'm too young... ;p

I could try to get it from friend. I can find OEM Product Key by going on "Computer", "System Properties" (the second from the left) and then going down to "Windows Activation" section. There should be written "Windows Activated" and below "Product Indetificator: [key]". Am I right? (I can't translate the words correctly, because I'm having Lithuanian Windows)

Yes, I can do this.

Your OEM product key should be on a sticker on the outside of your computer case. What you were talking about is your product ID, which is totally different to your product key.

I hope you are OK now.
When you update drivers, be sure you use the ASUS driver update app.

Okay, just some questions:

Do I have to save my other files (music, pics, videos...) somewhere? Or I don't need to be worried and insert those CD's to start system repair?

Will this appear after I'll use ASUS recovery disk?

Or, you could explain me what should I do step by step, because everything is so mixed in this topic...
