I want to do a complete reinstall of windows vista. but vista is on the pc when I bought it and I don't have an installation dvd. How can I do this?

I use Sony Acid Pro Digital Audio Workstation, and lately he has been hung up and jump. I want to wipe my hard drive completely and add programs until I have found what is causing the problem. I can not only complete re - install Vista because my pc did not come with an installation disc. How can I do this?

You mean reinstall the OS completely? If you have Vista DVD you can do, however, make sure
totally your data out of the backup drive and you need to reinstall your programs. If you do not
have Vista discs, you can buy them in your machine to cheap system. If you don't care about any existing
programs, then you can make a complete new installation - just select the format options that wipes the
entire disk (This erases all data as well).

Some system manufacturers use Partitions of recovery as well as other methods to allow you to return back
for a completely new installation. So check with your system manufacturer to see what options you need
do that - and it can certainly be done - just a question of the system machine processes
in place for you.

What are the system recovery options in Windows Vista?
