Question about Microsoft Computers & Internet
I think you upgraded from Windows Vista Home Basic to Windows Home Premium. In windows operating system you can only upgrade but can never downgrade an operating system. The best solution to this is to back-up your datas by either using a flash drive or burn CD's using your existing Home Premium system. After doing so, perform a clean format using DOS. Before doing so, gather all the CD installer that comes with your laptop like video, sound, LAN etc.. This is to install the drivers that will work with the new operating system.

If Word and Powerpoint are installed on your computer and you mean you don't have icons for them on the desktop, click on Start, then All Programs, and you will find them in the program list. You can start them from there, or you can right-click on the program and pick "send to.." from the menu that pops up. Select "desktop (create shortcut)" and you will have the icon on the desktop for future use.
If Word and Powerpoint are not in the program list, they aren't installed. These programs do not come with Windows. Unless you paid extra for them when you purchased the computer, you will need to purchase the Office suite and install the programs yourself.

How did you lose the operating by mistake? Did you format the drive?
You can not recover the operating system from the bios. But you may have a choice when the computer boots up there may be a recovery option, you can try that. If not you would have to reinstall or try a repair from a vista disk if you can borrow one from someone. Please let me know if I can offer any other help, Thanks for using FixYa
