My friend has got that old laptop with vista on it. It runs mega slow and ive tried everything i know to get it sorted but i couldnt. Literally starting up takes 10minutes and to open control panel around 3-4. I cant find any option for recovery system even in boot menu after pressing f2 and f12. Is there any way of saving that laptop? I dont have operating system for it to format the whole thing. But if thats the case would buying one help to recover it?
