What browser, Internet Explorer? If so then they are called Favorites, not Bookmarks. If Firefox then they are in .sqlite files under your profile in: C:\Documents and Settings\xxxxxxxx\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles.

Have you saved them anywhere? Have you ever done an image backup? If not, there probably gone for good.

The only possibility is to look in C:\Users\youraccountname\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxxxxxxx.default.

Look for a folder called bookmarkbackups. It's possible your bookmark file is there, something like: bookmarks-2013-03-13.json

Copy it to the \xxxxxxx.default folder.
