Friends laptop which I bougth for him is being collected tomorrow by the warranty firm. Now his laptop shut down whilst making a DVD of his childrens birthday party. The laptop had a habit of rebooting and then for it to work again it would need a reformat.
Now the laptop just shows boot mgr missing. The warranty firm are collecting it tomorrow.
Will they have access to these documents i.e. his family photos and CVs etc
The thing is I have a vista disc which I could use to reformat the laptop? laptop originally came with windows 7.
Would this invalidate the warranty?
