Red face I need help finding a set of HP Pavilion zv5000 discs for recovery

If you have a complete set of software for a HP Pavilion zv5000 you would like to sell. I am in need of a set that includes windows XP Home and recovery discs. I bought a laptop that has been infected and need to start over fresh with it. I will go to HP if I have to but wanted to see if one of you might have a set first. Thank You James

I would reccommend just getting Windows XP, not the HP install version of Windows XP. In my experience the install discs provided with HP and Compaq are frivolous and much more trouble than they're worth.

Agreed. Anything you need in addition--drivers, utilities, and firmware--are available at www.hp.com. Just choose "software and driver downloads" and enter your particular model.
