There are two ways:
1. Re-install Windows. You will then need to find all necessary drivers and programs by yourself.
2. Use the Recovery disc. You will bring your laptop in the state it was when you bought it.

With the disks you should find an explanation.

Put your Recovery Disk in your CD/DVD drive, reboot and follow the instructions on the screen.

Make sure you have backed up all your data before either reinstalling or using the recovery disk.

Yes. This step is as important (if not more) as having all the drivers and software ready before you start re-installing your OS.

No, you need the Recovery disk only.

Well then following your own logic reinstall Windows and find all drivers. There can be many reasons why your PC has become slower, one of which is your antivirus application.

On the website you will find the latest versions of drivers. So it is preferrable you download and install them.

What you need to do is download and install:

» Driver - Audio (http://h18007.www1.hp.com/support/files/hpcpqnk/us/locate/63_6170.html#6) version 8 Aug 05
» Driver - Graphics (http://h18007.www1.hp.com/support/files/hpcpqnk/us/locate/63_6170.html#8) version http://h18007.www1.hp.com/support/unitypages/thenewhp/images/spacer.gif13 Jun 06

to begin with.

You can see in this page (http://h18007.www1.hp.com/support/files/hpcpqnk/us/locate/63_6170.html#10) the dates of the various drivers.

You completely misunderstand.
I gave you links. Links are words when clicked on bring you to the file to download.

I thought you already re-installed Windows?
If so, then you download and install the latest drivers directly from the HP_COMPAQ website via the links i gave you. And NOT from the recovery disk.
