Hello Sissyh20, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You'll need reset CMOS, and do a clean install of Windows for this.

Who did you get the computer from? I would recommend to contact them to get the passwords to be able to access the computer so that you can reinstall Windows easier.

Do you have Windows installation media and a legal product key?
