You should have a set restore CD's, or a set of keystrokes that allow
you to get to a restore program at bootup. If neither of them are found
then contact the manufacturer of the PC. Some will send you CD's.
The label on the back is your product key to activate XP once you get it
reloaded.

Simply follow the recovery instructions in the manual that came
with the computer, or are displayed on the manufacturer's support web site.
