Software program and hardware driver reinstallation
If any of your factory-installed software programs or hardware drivers are damaged, you can reinstall it by using
the Recovery Manager program (select models only).
Do not use the Recovery Manager program to reinstall software programs that came on CDs or DVDs
included in the computer box. Reinstall these programs directly from the CDs or DVDs.
Before you uninstall a program, ensure that you have a way to reinstall it. Make sure that the program is still
available from where you initially installed it (for example, discs or the Internet). Or verify that the program is in
the list of programs you can reinstall from the Recovery Manager.
Some features might not be available on systems that are shipped without a version of Microsoft
To check the list of installable programs in the Recovery Manager:
Tap the Start button, tap All Programs, tap Recovery Manager, and then tap Recovery Manager. If
prompted, tap Yes to allow the program to continue.
Under I need help immediately, tap Software Program Reinstallation.
Tap Next at the Welcome screen. A list of programs opens. Check whether your program is there.
To uninstall a program:
Close all software programs and folders.
Uninstall the damaged program:
Tap the Start button, and then tap Control Panel.
Under Programs, tap Uninstall a program.
Tap the program you want to remove, and then tap Uninstall.
Tap Yes if you want to continue with the uninstall process.
