Hi fillup - Welcome to the DCT forum.
What brand of PC? (I am guessing it might be a HP?)
Do you have a genuine Windows product key?
If yes, you can download Windows 7 ISOs (including SP1) here: http://www.mydigitallife.info/official-windows-7-sp1-iso-from-digital-river/
Download the ISO (must be the identical operating system to the original), burn to DVD and clean install. Use your original product key to activate.
