Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional
If you didn't get a cd with your laptop, the laptop manufacturers usually set up a special recovery partition so that your system can be restored to its' original factory condition (of course, doing this will wipe out _all_ of your data). Your start menu should have an entry that says "recovery", or something similar. The recovery process should also provide you with an opportunity to make your own recovery cd (or dvd). I strongly recommend that you take the time to do so before going any further. That way if you have a hard drive issue you won't be stuck out in the cold with no operating system.
