dear.. i think you should re-install your laptop, maybe the system has an error because some files are missing, it can be happens because of viruses, to re- format your os you can click one time restore..just turn on or reboot your laptop and quickly press f11 button on your keyboard, but no data will save when you do this, so you need to back up your data first, so you don't lose your work.. if one click restore couldn't be done, you need to prepare a bootable windows cd. to install windows from cd you need to change your boot set up, press f1 when you turn on your laptop, go to boot menu change your first boot to cd room and the second boot to hard drive, enter the windows cd, press save and exit, when appear a message "boot from cd or dvd" quickly press any key, then you can follow the instruction that appears on your screen..
In order to format your laptop, you need to secure first your Operating System CD and the drivers for your laptop. Next, you have to back-up your files. Put them somewhere like an external drive for easy retrieval later.
After you've done this, you are now ready to go.
Here are the steps: 1) Insert the OS cd in your cd/dvd rom. 2) Restart your laptop. 3) While your laptop is still booting, press the key that will enable the bott sequence set-up. 4) Once the boot sequence shows up, choose CD/DVD Drive and press enter. 5) The next screen that will appear will be a blue screen with white text below. This means you have entered your OS CD already. 6) From there, you'll be guided with step by step instructions so you won't be lost. Just read it carefully.
Note: After successfully formatting your laptop, you need to install all your drivers.
Hope this helps.
Just get back here if you have follow-up questions.
