I want to replace old hard drive, but can't find recovery file on the HP website

HP Pavilion p6620f PC
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hello,

 

The hard drive in my computer has ceased to properly function. Thus, i want to replace it. However, since this is a pre-built computer, it seems that I am limited to the OS provided by you guys. The thing is that I can't find the recovery file on the website or a physical recovery disk on any other website.  Is the physical recovery disk still available for this computer? If not, are there any available alternatives? I understand that one such is purchasing a new OS, but that's a little too pricey, which I think doesn't justify sticking with the PC(it's 5 years old after all). So it would be preferable if the available alternatives aren't so expensive. Thank you.

Hi:

 

You can still get a set of recovery disks for your model from this non-HP vendor...
