Why was it necessary to "restore [your] laptop to its original" (OOBE)
state? Did you format the HDD, too?
1. Before doing anything else, write down the .NET Framework versions which
are already installed:
How to determine which versions of the .NET Framework are installed and
whether service packs have been applied
2. Now see Resolution Method 2 in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923100
(ignore the title). After running the appropriate/needed tool, (re)install
all .NET Framework versions manually using the download links on the page.
