I am going to answer yes to that, but to be sure, go into the recovery manager in programs and find "Software Program Reinstallation" in the left column and see exactly what is listed.
They may also be listed on the HP web site on your support page, I know the Media smart ones will be and if they are not you can get them from any model as they are designed to work on any HP machine.
If you are looking to make the laptop boot up faster then type "msconfig" (with out the quotation marks) and look for "Start Up" in the heading bar. These are the things that you can shut off to speed up the machine when you boot up. If you don't know what some of them are, mouse over them and Google to see what they are.

I just found the OSD to be annoying but to each his own.
Also there is good info here:
But if you are not sure what you are doing then use caution with this info.
