Best best is to reinstall the OS. Probably Windows XP. There should be a licence key somewhere on the machine if it is a name brand (HP, Dell, Compaq etc.) If so all you need to do is get an installation cd and use that key.

Sorry, for any more than that, we cannot help with as it is against our rules.

There is one more thing we can suggest, which is filed under the obvious answer is often the best:

Contact the school from which you bought the laptop and tell them you either want your money back or a working laptop (assuming it was bought as such)
