If you have the Win 7 installation dvd, you can use these instructions to restore your windows boot loader:

or:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927392

The configuration files for grub were installed in ubuntu's /boot/grub directory. After you deleted the ubuntu partition, grub can't find those configuration files resulting in your current problem. Grub is still on your mbr; you need to overwrite it with the win7 bootloader using the procedure in the above links.

Note, you can also boot win7 from the grub rescue prompt. Assuming you have win7 installed on the first partition of your only hard drive, you would run the following commands from the grub rescue prompt:

Code:
grub> chainloader (hd0,1)+1
grub> boot

ubuntu slow??

ubuntu does not make your laptop run slow. it's win7 that may be slow. ubuntu is much faster and runs on less resources than win systems
