    circuit city, tiger direct, new egg etc have external dvd drives going for a little over 20 bucks. I happen to need one to for my netbook. I would suggest getting the external drive cause then not only will you have a fresh reformat but also a drive for installing stuff I use to have this drive before i sold it and old my netbook it always worked good even for watching movies in the car and it has lightscribe for labeling DVDS

    Create a bootable usb (Use Nero)
    Go to your BIOS & Set it to boot from USB as first priority (it boots from hdd first)
    Download w7 and open the iso using nero and burn it to the usb
    then restart & plug usb in
    follow instructions & done

    peeps beat me to it.
    If you can get an external DVD drive cheap, do that.

    If not, create a bootable USB and reformat/install from that.
    Plently of tutorials on youtube
