When the computer boots, you should see a screen with something like this:
"To start the Product Recovery Program, press F11".
So, press the F11 key at that time and you should get steps to put your machine back in (more or less) factory condition (the software will be --- unfortunately, there's no such thing as a time machine for the hardware ;-)
If you have files you want to keep, BE SURE and back them up by copying them somewhere before you do this. In most manufacturer's "recovery" programs, the first thing they do is re-format the hard disk, so any files and programs you've installed since you bought it will be *GONE*.
If you boot to the CD (on boot with the CD in the drive you should get a screen with the option to boot to the CD, if your boot order in your BIOS is set to CD ROM before Hard Drive), you should (after loading files for a while) get to a screen that will allow you to select the drive/partition to install to. If trying to install from within the Windows environment it won't happen.
Using another pc, download the driver for the model of LAN card used. Goto the control panel - system - device manager and unistall the card (keep hardware attached to pc) and reboot. Use the downloaded driver to reuninstall. When it gets back online, do the same thing with any other device not working. Be sure to get the drive for the operating system used.
