If you list what laptop and model it is, then as said above it may have a booting option to do a factory reinstall.

If not then you will have to acquire a program that can tell you what your current windows key/ or get the COA on the bottom activated. you will also need a operating system disc of whatever you have at the moment i.e xp, xp pro, vista home etc

Restoring a computer to its original factory settings also cleans up the C drive and removes all the viruses and old programs that bog down a computer and make it slow and unresponsive. However, restoring a system should be a last ditch effort in trying to repair a computer, since restoration causes all programs and many files to be lost forever. Restoring an Acer computer to its original factory settings can be done in a few easy steps.
