    Need more info; are you getting anything displayed on your monitor?
    If so, is it hanging during the boot sequence and what are the screen contents at that point?
    Why are you trying to 'restore' the system?

How to reformat or reboot my comp witout any cds

You can't reformat without CD's

The most common cause for a slow PC is either a virus or malware.

Your problem is that you say you cannot download anything so you would be unable to run an online scan to check your system.

If you have access to another PC you could download F-Secure rescue disc and burn to CD then set your PC to boot from CD and run a scan before your system boots.

Details here.

Burn another copy of the rescue cd and see if the copy works,,
Use an original windows cd insted of the rescue cd,,
