Hi Suzy,

You'll probably need a plain, non-OEM Windows Vista setup CD. If you can borrow one from a friend, you can re-install Vista using the CD key on the multi-colored sticker stuck to the side/bottom of your PC.
Thanks but I do not have any friends that have a Vista set up cd unfortuenately, so not sure how to get my hands on !. Tried microsoft but all they seem to be interestrd in is up grading.
