Downgrade from windows 8.1 to windows 7

  rsedw 12:50 27 Oct 14

I have an HP laptop computer which ran Windows 7 when I bought it. When windows 8 was released I downloaded the upgrade to windows 8 from Microsoft's website. I am not over pleased with windows 8.1. Can I downgrade to the windows 7 that was originally on my computer.

NO reason why not, if you either have an install DVD or the original restore to factory settings, or at least the licence number of the original installation. Otherwise, you will need to buy a fresh copy of Windows 7.
