If the laptop came with Windows 7 installed, it probably has a recovery partition which can be used to reinstall to the original state of the laptop. It may also have a program that allows you to burn this recovery partition to one or more DVDs (for example my Toshiba Satalite came with Toshiba recovery disk creator, which made a nice little reinstall Disk. This has the advantage over a Normal Windows disk of including all the required drivers and the preinstalled programs. It has the disadvantage that it can only be run in that exact model of computer.
