You got a Packard bee? That's a nasty bug. j/k

If you don't have a restore CD or restore partition, there is little you can do. Least you can do is call them up and ask for restore CD's.

thats your best bet, if you cant get them you will need a OEM CD of windows and use your windows code from the laptop to re install a fresh copy, but then you will have to re install all drivers and software you want compleetly.... not fun at all if you dont know where to start from.
