If the PC was supplied with win7 preinstalled either it has a hidden recovery partition, which you access via that PC makers instructions to create the recovery disks, or it was supplied with a set of recovery disks.

How you restore to factory condition is a process determined by your PC maker, its not an MS or win process.

This is possible only if your PC maker provided the facility to do so [by putting a Factory Image Restore partition on the hard drive].  You will need to check your PC manual or the PC maker's support site to find out.

The PC maker must have provided a means of reinstalling Windows 7 - it is only the chosen method that can be in doubt.

You can also make a Windows 7 installation disk [on DVD or 4GB USB].
