Welcome to WebmasterWorld FillupDaniel.

A recovery CD will usually restore a machine to its factory defaults. In the BIOS make sure that the machine will boot from the CD ROM first, and then restart the machine with the CD in the drive.

If you check the manual, you may find that there is a recovery partition on the hard disk (typically a few GB). I think this can be activated from the bios - something to do with the blue key above the keyboard.
