Any help from anyone will be greatly appreciated,
My computer knowledge is somewhere between having a basic understanding, and complete noob so please be gentle.
Okay, I have an Asus G75VW Republic of Gamers laptop. And the hard drive corrupted. I took it to Best Buy and purchased a new Hard Drive that same day and had them install it. The Geek Squad guy, (Which seemed to know less about computers than me). Said I just needed to order the recovery disks from Asus and pop them in and my computer should be good to go. I took his advice and paid $50 for the recovery disks. They arrived and do not work. When I power on the computer with the disk in the tray, it acts like it wants to boot up but then just reboots over - and - over. I took it back to best buy and the same Geek Squad guy that was so helpful before told me to contact Asus and tell them the recovery disks they sent me were corrupted. Needless to say, this guy is wasting my time. So I've been doing some research and I think (but not sure at all) the recovery disks are not working because the new hard drive is not from Asus and has more storage than the original. Then I started thinking, "maybe if I just recover Windows 7 Home Premium back on it, use the product-key on the bottom sticker of the laptop, i'll get lucky." Unfortunately, that Microsoft website where you download the operating systems for people that already have product keys does not work for me. I think because the product-key i'm using to try to download the file is associated with a laptop that came with windows 7 home premium preinstalled (my laptop).
So that is my current situation.
If I bought windows 7 again, could I download it with a new product key? Because at this point I don't care anymore. I have to get my laptop fixed. I don't know what to do and I've been without a Laptop now for months.
Any help you could provide would be SO helpful and appreciated and you'll probably wake up and find a bag of money on your way tomorrow. Or at least I hope you do!
