So my laptop an HP ProBook 4510s, has some kind of registry error where the system doesn't know which profile to choose, so it starts with a temporary profile. I called HP numerous times to sort out the problem and they told me to start from scratch. So here I am trying to reset everything without the windows 7 disc. Some suggestions are greatly appreciated! What do I do?

Hi miamiahaha :D
Have you backed up the data on the HDD to another location? See the link below for the requested information;

Hope this is helps and let us know how it goes.

NB: Once your system is back up and running making a system restore disk should be a priority.

If there is nothing on the HDD you want to keep then it doesn't matter.
Be sure you choose method 1 so that you do not require the OS disk.
