Notebook Restore help

my partitions were erased even my oem samsung recovery partition. How can i get back the original windows 7 home premium back onto the computer. It was purchased with the os installed, but am now afraid im out of luck . Blue ray doesent work, hdmi connect doesnt work, wireless adapter just barely started working. I went here Support for R480 SAMSUNG and cannot download everything i need cause some of the downloads are not compatible with my current os. By the way, i installed vista onto the notebook with desktop restore cds. my computer thinks its a different computer. Neewwb here i suppose. Thanks

Borrow a win7 dvd from a friend or download one from the web. Then install the version that came preinstalled and preactivated on your computer. Activate with the COA sticker key on your computer using phone activation.
