Laptop Needs Repair Work

by steff2power55 / December 1, 2008 11:44 AM PST

I purchased a laptop which can with vista Home the first year of HP Vista. however, after following the directions to create a back up on a disk it copied onto the recovery hard drive which created low memory and now I want to restore my disk drive after paying HP for a recovery disk, and would like to add more memory. My concerns are: If I take my lap to a company that HP did not contract with under warranty, and repair charges are very expensvie to recovery the drive and add memory than a computer repair store, will I run into more trouble using the computer company with the lower price for repairs and add-ons? Also if I add more memory will my lap run faster and show audio video's?
