Put the HDD in another machine and clean/format the drive. reset the Bios in your machine. Purchase a legal copy of windows and install it.

NEVER buy a computer from a pawn shop again! After the cost of windows you likely could have bought a decent new base model PC that was faster and with a lot less hassle.

That's not the only reason not to buy a computer from a pawnshop. The system could have been stolen and dumped there.

You bought a computer from a pawnshop and did not have them turn it on to be sure it worked correctly? If thats a true story you need to take it back.
