I had the exact same problem so I called HP support.The instructions were- remove power cord from lap top if power cord is connected, then remove battery, connect power cord to lap top then turn on lap top by holding power button down for 30 seconds. It booted up, no problem. The proceedure is to remove static electricity.
Well you really didn't loose them.
What happens is Hp puts in the software of a whole bunch of games where after time you have to go to their site and purchase their games.
Well there are other FREE sites to goto to find Solitaire, free cell, Spyder solitaire and such.
I also think that they meybe hidden files in Windows, but to find them you have to remove Hp games and then do a search
If you still have the recovery partition: Restart your computer then look for the F key which controls your BIOS then look for the option "reload default setting" then follow the on-screen instructions.
If not, please let me know what version of windows you have installed, the type of recovery media?
The issue might be due hardware malfunction or lack of system performance or corrupt os.

I can't get you clearly, if you buy the product (win vista) then it should come with the DVD but if it's a crack version, you need to apply patch/install the crack so that it'll not prompt you again.. If you have problem with this, do let me know.. through my email.. Good luck..
You need to turn off Windows updates. For this go to the Control Panel--->Windows Updates and select Turn off windows updates. If the problem still there, take the backup of your documents and desktop in a mass storage or another drive of your computer and install a new copy of Windows and after finishing installation of Windows first turn off Windows Updates.

Make sure that the device is recognized in device manager and that the driver is installed. If then go to the web site for setting up the router. If it still does not work then the router is fubar. Of course, you need to make sure that your provider is "on line."
