If there is just reboot the pc, press F8 to open up additional options when booting, there should be an option to repair you pc, if there is a restore partition it should be within there

I agree, most major manufacturer's provide a recovery partition on the drive.

Use that to reformat/reinstall the operating system. It'll also save you the time you'd spend having to hunt down drivers, etc. etc. etc.
