You dont need a 'motherboard cd' to format your laptop.
all you need is Windows CD which will install Windows back on your laptop after you format.
To format:
Put the windows CD in your CD tray, then restart your laptop.
A few seconds after you turn it on, it will ask you to press a key to boot from Disc (so press a key)

Next, windows will load its drivers and ask you where you want to install.
If windows is already present on, say C: then format C drive first by clicking on "advanced options > format"

Follow the instructions on screen to format and install..
After Windows is installed and running, go to your laptop manufacturers website and download and install the appropriate drivers.

Power buttom does not light up and cannot turn on computer. Has power via outlet.

If your battery is charged, try and power it up with it or buy a new adaptor. If this doesn't work, then I guess you should repair it in a proper service. (I think you should have warranty.)

Wireless not working, when my laptop is switch on, the wireless will show it is working but when the computer is ready to use, the wireless switch will just go off and I can never detect any wireless...

Most laptops employ a Function key "Fn, F(Sub/superscript in Bold)"

First examine your keyboard looking for keys with symbols or words in a different color, this color should match the color of your function key.

If there are no other colors, then size should be your indicator. Keys like letters may have small numbers near them, this number is your Fn+ That key result.

Look for an icon like a radio tower, and Press and Hold Fun, Fn, F (depending on your situation) and hit that tower key.

You should see a result on the screen.

If this is a Dell Laptop check your QuickSet for "Always enable on battery" under your wireless/power-saving settings.

If you have no Fn key, and no Radio Tower icon in site, visually inspect the sides of the machine for a switch or button.

HP's generally have a button near an LED lens
IBM Dell and others have switches
(none of these are definite, simply a generality)

Lastly, check your BIOS/ Setup Menu for related Wireless/Networking/Communication settings, make sure to enable your wireless, regardless of power saving options.
(F1, F2, Esc, Delete, F12 Depending on the manufacturer )

Good Luck, Let us know what you find.
