Please try to save any files or pictures that you need before you do this either to a usb spare hard drive or a usb pen drive because you will loose it all if you format or reinstall windows
press the power on key as well as the F11 key
hopefully this will take you into the factory restore
which will format the hard drive while it restores
if you just want to format the hard drive itself then you could remove the hard drive
connect it to another computer via a usb cable and use the other computer to format the hard drive that you removed
or there are some good software out there that you can bootup with and format your drive without removing it from your laptop
a bootable spotmau would do the trick but its not cheap to buy
norton system works is another good software
pleasse let us know if this has helped you
Try running your laptop in safe mode. In order to do this, right when you start your laptop, press F8. It would then take you to a screen that has an option that says "Safe Mode". Run the laptop in safe mode, and then go to system tools and try running the system restore tool.
Make sure the laptop is not connected to the internet so turn off the wireless adapter or don't connect any network cable to it.
The computer is supplied with a recovery partition in the hard drive. You can use the same to restore the computer back to factory settings. Please restart the computer and then press and hold F10 key to access the recovery partition. Once you access the same, please select "Restore C Drive" to perform a System Recovery.
As you have mentioned that the computer is infected by virus, there is a possibility that System Recover using the above method may not eradicate all the virus. In that situation a "Complete System Recovery" will be required. To perform a Complete System Recovery, you need the recovery discs. If you have created the recovery discs before, then you can use the same to perform a complete system recovery.
Else you can purchase the recovery discs from the below link:
