If you want to completely erase all data on your hard drive, and start with a fresh installation of Windows, the process is pretty simple. Boot to you Windows Media Disc, delete the existing Windows Partition (Normally the 1st NTFS partition) then create a new NTFS partition, format it, then install WIndows to that partition. After the Windows installation completes, then install the drivers (Normally in this order:)
Desktop system Software (Dell Specific)
Chipset
Video
Audio
Modem
Network
Wireless (If Equipped)
Touchpad (If Equipped)
Card reader (If Equipped)

How can I Reformat my Dell Inspiron 630m laptop


I can tell you how to format your drive but you should know that this should be done after you have tried everything else to fix your system.
I will assume a Microsoft Operating System such as XP, Vista or windows 7. Put your cd/DVD in the tray and reboot. When prompted check the box to install the OS. With this method the format is done before the install. Another (more difficult) method is to use a program such as Partiton Magic to create partitions and format your drive.

I already back up all my files now i cant restore my dell e1705 laptop to factory set up


There are two ways to do this: with a CD or with the recovery partition. If your laptop didn't come with an OS install CD, then it has a recovery partition on the hard drive. Once you figure out which option you need to use, it's just a matter of following the directions in the on-screen prompts.

Insert the winxp disk and boot from that, when prompted hit any key to boot from cd.

Win xp will start to install choose to delete the partition, confirm delete.

then press enter to install to that unallocated partition, choose format to NTFS.

Follow the prompts and it has formated the hard drive and will install XP.
