Go here ... http://helpdeskgeek.com/how-to/merge-two-partitions-in-windows-7/ .

 

Be careful. It's easy to accidentally erase data. Follow the directions and warnings.

Part of reinstalling Windows 7 is to delete existing partitions and then create a new one.

As a general rule, OEM computers are not shipped with an installation disc, there is a System Recovery Partition on the hdd which can be used to reinstall the operating system.  I would suggest looking in Disk Management to see if there is a partition labelled Recovery.

 

What is the make and model of this computer.
