    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?

Is it possible to do factory restore on laptop given to grandkids ,has things on it i can't seem to remove////mpc TransPost T3200e


Yes, most computer have a factory restore, normaly the F10 F11 F12 buttons when you turn on the computer or press F8 when booting up and there can be a repair computer at the top of the list, you will need to look for the how to for your machine, but back up what you want to keep as sometimes restore will wipe all data, you may want to try and do a System Restore to a previous time, it can be your best option, its in the programs - accessories - system tools folder. good luck.

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.

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 :)
