Hi,

 

I'm going to try to make this sound as less complicated as possible.  I have a hp all-in-one pc that originally came with win 7 pro oa (according to my coa sticker located on the bottom of the computer).  I am currently using win 7 home, and it is giving me some problems such as not loading my integrated webcam and keyboard drivers.  When I go to device manager, I can see the drivers, but the software is nowhere to be found on my computer.  I am also getting "windows 7 not genuine errors" and a black screen b/c my product key is not valid with win 7 home.  I guess my question is, is there any place I can get a valid and real copy of win 7 pro oa (x16-96076) for free and redo my computer using my product key that I already have?

For your missing drivers/software, download them for your model, HP site,

Isn't there a recovery partition on the hard drive? If so you can do a recovery to factory new state,

 

What is the full model number of the computer. The users guide should tell you how to start it atg boot time. Often it's F11 or Ctrl F11.
