You might be able to call them and maybe fax the receipt and get a set of recovery CD's relatively inexpensively
Just be sure to have the model and serial number plus any othe number on the bottom of the laptop, handy

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
Do not send me PMs with problems that should be posted in the forums. Keep it in the forums, so everyone benefits

Hello knight12u,

If I were in your shoes I would take it back to tesco and let them sort it out, just because you bought it at a reduced price should not affect your statutory rights.
