You haven't mentioned what make/model of laptop you have so it's impossible to give a definitive answer but as a general rule there will be a partition on the harddrive which holds the recovery data to return your laptop to it's 'factory' settings. How you access the partition depends on the manufacturer. However, as you also say that you have 'old copies of Windows' on your machine this implies that you have upgraded from something other than Windows 7 so that might be a totally different scenario, in which case you will definitely need to supply a bit more info to get an answer.

Also your keyboard appears to have a stuck letter 'm' ;-)

Old "copies"? How many versions do you have installed?

Try tapping F8 on start up. Choose "Repair your computer". When it loads to the repair options see if their is an option for factory image.
