Hi, you need to re-install the operating system (OS). If you need the back up, copy the files in your Desktop & My Documents (because these items are in C drive) to another drive.

Hold F8 on boot up, and boot into Safe Mode. There will be an Administrator account, which you can use to reset your account password. If somehow the Administrator account is disabled, you can use alternative methods like: this, this and this.
you can get the driver from the manufacturer website. If the PC is custom build, get the motherboard name and download driver from them. if your board is not integrated (built in on the board) find the name of the card model, googled it and download from the internet
Hey Hicomp! Generally retail packaged software is designed to be sold in retail stores and as such comes with a lot of literature, extra paperwork, CD's, and usually tech support for the program you're purchasing. OEM packaged software is the same software just without the retail packaging, extra paperwork, and no tech support usually.
You can request a copy from microsoft but they will charge you. Do you have a recovery CD came with your PC? if not the best way is to ask your friends for the CD but use your own product key, it should be on the label on the computer. Good Luck :)
