How can you spell it wrong if you just made it last night...I really don't get it. I presume this is a laptop?

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers

This happened to me on my brand new Dell during the setup...no time to even copy the operating system to disc as a backup...for me the problem is the keyboard is too cramped and fingers keep missing their mark and I constantly find the caps lock is on! or that my fingers have touched the wrong keys! I ended up having to order a complete set of discs from Dell....they sent me a set of four (Windows 7) and they helped me install the new system. Good thing I didn't have much inside (brand new computer) because ALL files etc got wiped out and I started from zero!~ Good luck.

you can download a repair disk, do a system restore/reimage or factory restore.

it all depends if you made an image in the first place, if your backup id working or indeed if you have system restore switched on, all these things are generally set to work as default, so the first time your machine made a backup it will have asked if you wanted to make an image...and a factory restore is dome by pressing an F key (usually) at boot.
