Hi my daughter has a laptop and now the harddrive has failed. She failed to make a recovery disc and now as the computer was supplied with windows 7 on it and no disc has no os to put back on. Is there anyway other than buying windows 7 to recover the os?

you can download win7 ISO image, burn it to dvd and use it to reinstall your windows

use the product key written on the sticker somewhere on your laptop

this is perfectly legal, just make sure you download the right version (for which you have the licence; most likely home premium but not necessarily)
