    If you're referring to the files on the hard drive, the easiest way to delete everything is to re-partition & format the drive. To do this you need either the drive manufacturer's utility disk or a CD with the operating system that you will be installing. Which O/S is it?

How do I access the factory restore from either f12 or f2?


U may not have to do a factory restore. That is painful.
Boot into safe mode (repeated hit F8 while booting and select SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING.
once there open START menu and type CMD. Rt clk the top item (CMD.exe) and select run as admin...
When DOS window opens type chkdsk c: /f
it will ask u if u want to do it on next reboot - say yes, then reboot.
when done it will try to reboot. If it works u r good to go.
if it does not get into safe mode again and to the DOS window and type SFC /SCANNOW
This will run a chk of ur system files and fix any corrupt ones.
Do that even if it does boot up normally.
If u can't get into safe mode then u need tall boots.
A system restore may be needed. HOWEVER, that wipes away everything on the HDD. I would first try to do a Windows update install. That will reinstall windows and leave programs and data intact.
If that does not work, then connecting the HDD to another computer to remove ur data and reformat the HDD before trying a restore is recommended as u may have an HDD issue.

Caqn i put a 700Mhz Dell Pentium III in the same


No, you cannot exchange them. I was not able to determine what socket your notebook uses, but the 500 Mhz mobile Celeron was only available in two formats. One was Socket 495, which has no Pentium III processors available (only Celeron). The other is BGA2, which is not a socket at all, but is soldered onto the motherboard and is thus virtually unremovable.

Need faster PIII mobile processor for CPx 650 laptop = X ghz proc


I'm not sure about the CPU upgrade--these generally are hard to determine and this is complicated by the fact that Pentium III processors are no longer made, I would say that you could go on e-Bay and find one there (should be cheap) and try it.
An easier way to get a little more speed is to bring the memory up to the maximum the laptop will hold. (In your case 512 MB). That and set the paging file to allow the system to determine the size needed (Unless your system has Linux installed). Any further upgrades on an older system like yours are usually just a waste of money.

USB 2.0 driver


Yes you can, and it ea´sy to do if u have a free psi-slot
And drivers can always be found if there isent a driver-cd following whit the item
But, in not sure that you can use the benefit and full speed of an high-speed usb since your motherboard is a litlle bit old and so is the bus-speed on it.

Good luck

Petium 3 processor with windows xp


Just a bit of information. Your slow speed reguards to DSL is bull. Unless your ISP requires your system to run a min Mhz cpu. Cant really suggest how high you can up your cpu unless we know the model of the board & it wouldn't hurt to know the bios version too. Here is a small list from Fixya of Dells & Pent III. http://www.fixya.com/support/dell/motherboards/f5996

Upgrade from 600 MHz to 1 GhZ


According to this review, you can upgrade as far as a 2 GHz P4-M at least; http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1895,669029,00.asp Other than that, i have been unable to find the details of your motherboard - if you can post the make and model (should be printed on it somewhere) then I would hope to find a more complete list of compatible and incompatible processors. Gateway themselves no longer offer online info or support for this model, but the motherboard details should enable me to find out what you need to know. Waiting for your post :)
