    If you are the registered owner of the laptop you are probably better off contacting Dell support.

    You can reinstall Windows by using the OS CDs that came with your system when you purchased it from Dell.

    Have you tried booting to safe mode?

    Dell systems usually have a pre-loaded image of the factory settings that you can access by pressing certain keys during boot up.

    You can just hook up an external USB CD drive and install Windows.
