Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

My laptop said to burn 4 backup disc i was only able to burn 3

\015 Because i ran out of blank cd's how can i burn the last one and how important is it to have the backup disc. it has the vista home basic 3 gig ram 160 gb harddrive\015

Answers :

Extremely important. An operating system disk costy over a hundred dollars and if anything happens , like you loose a file or the hard driver has a problem you will have to reinstall. Having 3 of 4 disks is like havign only three sides of a boat. It will still sink and not work. You may as have none as to have a incomplete set.
