I am not sure if that's the only way but it's highly advisable to make DVDs backup.
Windows License/Key is usually located at the bottom of laptop in form of stickers.

Right off the assembly line
I wanna purchase a gaming laptop <55k.

I am planning for HP Envy M6 1213TX.

15.6", i5 Ivy Bridge 3.2 GHZ, 8 GB DDR3, 1TB SATA, 2GB AMD RADEON, & 26mm Slip still with optical drive.

3yrs onsite warranty + 4k extra gifts.


Should I choose it for gaming???

Thanks in advance.

1.nah you may want to use a pen drive / usb device but I suggest DVD's..

2.If you are on win7(which obviously is not the case here I guess..) then you will have a key printed below. But on win8 lappies don't have a printed key (here you are screwed)..

3.Once backed up it's safe.. (How dunno..)

Just note down the key printed at the bottom of the lappy of you have windows 7. And then you can delete the partition. In future install win 7 using the same key. Note that you have to install the correct version. If the original key was of win 7 home basic then it will be valid on only win 7 home basic dvd.
If you have win 8 then simply delete the recovery partition. You don't need to note down any key. After any future installation of win 8 from any media , once you connect to internet, it automatically detects if the the lappy originally came with win 8.

Note that the only disadvantage you'll be in is that you have to manually install the drivers. While in the case of recovery from factory installed recovery partition, it automatically installs the drivers.

^thanks chaithanya ,harsh and rishi for your replies. My lappy came with windows 8 , that means I can safely delete recovery then install win 8 from some other source and validate it online right without any key?

HD 7640G & HD 7660G iGP of trinity series are far btr than HD 4000

Intel HD Graphics 4000 - NotebookCheck.net Tech (it falls below HD7480D)

wat's purpose??
for net surfing etc PDC would do but for even slightly heavy jobs atleast a i3 is recommended

Pardon me for my ignorance btw what purpose does the packet of silica gel that comes with lappy serve, moisture absorbant?

HD4000 may be weak but Trinity processing power is even more low so decide if you want to sacrifice more processing power for slightly better GPU.

yet to use any HD4000 based laptop but i can play low system requirement games even on power saver mode with A6 4400M without any lag but some softwares take time to start up. i am using HP 4445S.
