Sometimes manufacturers have a facility to restore your PC to its original delivery state by pressing the F10 key as you boot the PC up. Have you tried this?

If not you will have to contact Medion for either advice or an installation dvd.

i phoned them up and they said she should have a cd or dvd,but she did not get one,and they want £19.99 for a recovery disc.

That may have to be the answer then but ensure that it comes with the 'Product Key' so it can be activated.
