Guidelines for reinstallation
You should have the bootable DVD including the version of your system before you perform the reinstallation of Windows. When this is done, start the process of reinstallation by putting the DVD into your CD-ROM drive and follow the instructions after choosing ‘Custom’ installation. Do not forget to take backup of all your necessary data before starting the system installation as you may lose important data after the reinstallation process. If you do not have a DVD-drive, the perfect way to prepare for the installation is to purchase the official version of your Windows system from Microsoft. Keep in mind that the process of reinstallation is almost the same with all versions of Windows operating systems.
Please keep in mind that it is always better to format your hard disk before installation. It is not very difficult and this can make you work on the computer more comfortably. (For example, you can make one partition for Windows and one for your data). Also find out what version of Windows you should choose 32-bit or 64-bit. The wrong version of selection of Windows system may cause problems of freezing. Before installation, you should check if your laptop is really compatible with that version of the system you want to reinstall. Also read the documentation for your laptop to avoid any issue.
