First I would run a test on your hard drive as follows.

Please also tell me if you have access to another PC with Windows 7 and a CD burner.

Identify the make of your hard drive and then use one of the links below to get the manufacturer's diagnostics for ISO (CD) not the one for Windows.
When the download is complete right click the file and select Extract Here and burn the image to a CD.
In Windows 7 right click the extracted file, select Open With, then select Windows Disc Image Burning Tool then follow the prompts. For all other versions of windows (if you do not have an ISO burner) download this free software. ImgBurn
Install the program and start the application. Select the top left hand option to burn image file to disk and then on the next window click on the small yellow folder icon and browse to the file you have downloaded from the links below. Then click on the two grey discs with the arrow in between (bottom left) and leave it to complete the operation.
Boot the PC into the Bios setup and set the CD/DVD drive to 1st in the boot sequence. Insert the disk in the drive then reboot and the disc will load into dos.
Excelstore
Hitachi/IBM
Samsung
Seagate, Maxtor & Quantum
Western Digital
Toshiba/Fujitsu
If you have a Toshiba/Fujitsu hard drive I would suggest the use of the diagnostics from the Seagate link as this will work on all makes of drive and on any OS.

It is not all that clear what has happened from your description of events. Please describe in more detail what has occured. I have no idea what you mean by "my PC went all the way back to the first loosing everything", first what?

Did you get a chance to run the hard drive diagnostics?

That means you have run the factory restore which wipes everything off the drive. Glad to hear the PC is working ok but this will highlight the importance of keeping back ups of all your important documents, a must for any PC user.
