Most E-machines (depending on age) have a recovery partition where once you turn on the computer, you can use the F11 key to start the recovery process. The Presario might not have it, but give it a shot!

Some compaq machines have a system recovery that you can launch via the programs menu. Worth checking out anyways, otherwise you will need to either borrow a cd or possible get a tech shop to burn you a copy off the media. Best of luck
