Windows 7 32 bit
Installation Disc

Does anyone know where I can get a HP/Compaq Quick Restore Disc? I am trying to re-install Windows 7 on my computer.

Thank you

Have you looked here => HP PCs - Obtaining PC Recovery USB Drives or Discs?

You can always download an ISO and use that. You will just need to make sure that you have the relevant HP drivers as well.

Windows 7 HP 64

The best way to reinstall windows on your laptop is to do a Factory recover. It will format the C: partition and load a image from the recovery partition. It will end with a computer as it came from HP.
Factory recover can be launched from BIOS or from Windows.
HP Factory Recover

As it will format your C: partition, save all your data on an external disk before launching the factory recover
