How do I turn Windows 8 into Windows 7 on my HP laptop?

I absolutely HATE Windows 8. I don't want it anymore and I was wondering if there was a way to get rid of Windows 8 and get Windows 7 instead?

You would have to completely uninstall Windows 8 , and then buy a Windows 7 disc and install it ! You would have to buy 7 so you can register it .

It's OK ! She's retired now and get's most of her pension and S.S. Plus now she's home with me all the time , which is a plus . I'm not so lonely during the day anymore . So actually , it worked out for the better ! Thank you for your concern , I think it's great !

What are the risks of uninstalling Windows 8 and installing Windows 7? Because my mom tried going from Windows XP to Windows Vista on her desktop and it completely messed everything up and she had to set it back to the original setting some how. So that's what I'm scared of. Could that happen on my laptop as well or no?

If it's newer laptop with plenty of memory , you shouldn't have a problem ! Your Mom is better off with XP as Vista is a real problem child and that's probably why she had problems . Plus Vista needs more memory than XP ! I still have XP on one of my units and I still like it .

I hear that all the time...windows 8 is a flop like windows vista was. People that I know, that has # 8, wishes they had kept windows 7. One suggestion, sell yours. Check out local radio shacks for windows 7 on clearance( to make room for the 8's) and you can probably get a heck of a deal. I bought my Toshiba Laptop for 299.99 on clearance. That's what I would do; just sell yours and get you another one.

Agreed with Mr.Wayne, you have to reinstall windows 7, you can get it online or you can just buy a disc ...peace
