If you had a backup, great! Otherwise, your coins are gone for good unless you somehow manage to get the hardware fully repaired.

if there is any restore option you can restore files in case of corruption. In case it is stolen, then your bitcoins are owned by someone else too eve if u get access to it through other means.

if your system is password secured then most probably your bitcoins are still safe and try to reach out the stealer before he installs the new window or erases the whole data.
