    Put your windows disk in and restart your pc.

    Follow onscreen prompts for factory restore.

    That's hard to say, you haven't provided any information about your laptop.

    Do you have a Recovery CD that came with the laptop or do you have a newer laptop that has a Recovery partition?

    Would be nice to know operating system, make and model number of laptop.

    That's a good point. Recovery partition didn't cross my mind when I suggested using DBAN to wipe & start fresh.
