    See the links in my signature on how to create a useful post.
    Best I can suggest with the zero info you provided is contact the laptop mfg
    or read the manual.

    Check with your laptop manufacturer (manual, disc that came with the laptop,
    or the manufacturer's Web site) for the restore process for your particular
    system.

    I've noticed that a lot of newer laptops don't come with a Restore CD, but
    rather a Restore Partition on the Hard Drive.

    May be worthwhile looking for that.

    Most notebook makers will send you a restore disk, though they often charge
    for it. Check the site. Then, somewhere in the bowls of your new machine
    is a program to make a recovery disk. It should be one of the first things
    you do. Good luck.

    If it still boots there is usually an option to restore to factory new using
    that hidden partition. But you will lose anything you did since you bought
    it. Try the manual, or the help files that came with it for information on
    how to do it for your machine.

    Good luck.
