run the recovery cd

most new pc's come with a backup of the operating system on a hidden partition of the hard drive
running the recovery cd should give you the option of reinstalling to the way the machine came
As said above, stick in the recovery CD, reboot and follow instructions
The documentation that came with the laptop should tell you how to use the recovery CDs.

This will probably take the laptop back to how it was when it was shipped, so you will lose all the personal files that are currently on the hard disk.

Make sure you back up any personal files before doing the recovery.
