Expert:  James K. replied 2 years ago.
YOu can restore if you have the media depending on how old the machine is , it may have a built in recovery partition that would do a clean install
If it dose have one of these it access via Alt and F10 when you start the machine
Other than that you would need a Windows Install CD
