Hello Skot

Is the laptop still on warranty?
Normally manufacturer dont consider software issues, so you can change the os on the pc, but its at your only responsibility, similarly if you corrupt you system and request a software installation from your customer service, they can still charge you for that. But i think you can ask for a spare driver cd or recovery cd given you have proof of purchase.
Thanks Sadgurl.Thanks for your quick response.yes,still it's in warranty period.I will try for spare cd.
