OEM computer manufacturers are required to provide at least one way for you to reinstall Windows if you buy a computer with Windows preinstalled - your computer should have included either a restore partition
on your hard drive, or Windows install/restore disks. Most computer manufacturers also have a feature to make your own install disks.
If the restore partition is still there and was not removed, it will reinstall Windows. There is usually a prompt when you first start the computer telling you what key to press to start the restore -
check your manual if you're not sure how to. Or if you have install disks - insert them, restart and boot from them to start the reinstall process.
If you restore it to factory condition, it will be like it was when you first bought it - all preinstalled programs will be installed. Anything you installed after buying it
must be reinstalled. This will remove any personal files on the computer, back them up first.
