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:

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.

Cheers... Jim
