    Help!!

    Okay, the laptop I have did not come with a Windows Vista reinstall disk and nothing on my computer is working. The internet says that it is connected but I can't surf the web because it comes up with a message saying "failed to connect". I have searched the internet on my desktop for help and none of the suggestions worked.

    My question is, can I get 7 on my desktop (which the internet works on for some odd reason), save it to a hard drive and then install it on my laptop?

    I need an answer asap! I wanted to ask before I spent the money on it.

    Thanks in advance,
    Leslie

    How are you connected to internet ?

    1. Depending on your internet connection type, you may need to set up all the required parameters (e.g. IPV4).
    2. If you use firewall, it shouldn't block your internet connection/btowser/ports.
    (3. If you browse through an external proxy server, it my be the cause too).

    Yes, you will be able to BUY a copy of Windows 7, and boot from it on your laptop.
