Dell Windows 7 PC Restore
Dell - create backup discs
Dell Recovery Partition - restoring F8 link

If these fail then do a Clean Reinstall Windows 7 making sure to read the Special Note for Dell Owners at the end. Dell will provide a free reinstallation DVD which is a clean copy of Win7 without the factory bloatware.
