If it has a system restore partition you use that.
What make is it?

boot up in to the recovery partition.

Very much depend on the make and model of your laptop. You CAN do it though.

Fujitsu siemens has many models. Assuming HDBR (Hard disk based recovery) is enabled in your computer (since you donlt have the restoration cd), try pressing F8 during start up process to open advanced options. Select "repair your computer" and follow onscreen instructions from thereon. You might have to enter admin username and password (through keyboard layout) after pressing F8. Good luck.

It would probably be easier to check if the disk has a recovery partition 1st.

Do this by:

Right click My computer > Manage > Disk Management.

Take a look at Disk 0, you will be able to see all partitions on the drive.

A recovery partition would usually appear before the C: Drive.
