New PC's are normally supplied with either a Recovery Disk, or with a copy of the disk on a Recovery partition. If it is a Recovery partition, when you first use the PC, there will be a prompt come you suggesting that you create the Repair Disk. Did you do that, and have you tried using it?

The Tech guys must be the most useless bunch of idiots I've ever met....

Try repeatedly pressing the F10 button as you switch on the laptop. There should be a recovery partition on your computers hard drive (unless it was the hard drive that was repaired in which case you have lost it).

If that doesnt work then you will have to contact Advent to get a recovery disk from them.

I don't see how The Tech Guys can claim to have repaired your computer if they did not re-install Windows for you. Send it back and get them to do the job properly!!!
