My suggestion...replace the optical drive. Many are available for $10-20, which I suspect is far less than one would pay any 3d-party to reinstall Windows.
Assuming that you actually have valid install CDs...that would be the way to go.
If the system is an OEM (made by HP, Dell, Lenovo, etc.), then there may be a built-in restore-to factory-defaults mechanism on the system. These normally depend on hidden partitions created by the manufacturer...if the hard drive has been previously totally formatted by someone where all existing partitions were deleted...then the restore-to-factory-defaults option would not be able to do what it was designed to do.
System manufacturer and model?
