Hi,

 

I don't know its model/product therefore won't be able to help much. But normally

 

(a) Do a factory settings: Since you don't have media, you can order from HP, Please use the following instructions

(b) Do a clean install:

 

For Windows 7: You can use the product key from a ticker on your machine (bottom or inside battery chamber) to download and re-install.

For Windows 8, 8.1 and 10: You can down load ISO file from Microsoft and install, skip the key during installation process and it will re-activate for you when online.

 

Regards.
