\015\012go to run (or in vista just type in the search bar at the bottom of the start menu) and type cmd. this will bring up a command prompt. type "format c:" (without the quotation marks) you will be asked if you want to continue press "y" and then enter. make absolutely sure you have everything you need from your computer before you press y cause you will loose everything. when it asks for a label just press enter to keep the same label. your hard drive is now blank. restart your computer, reinstall windows.
