Question about Dell Dimension 8200 PC Desktop
I recently purchased a dell dimension 8200 that was originally purchased in 2002 before the partitioned harddrive made it easy to restore factory settings. I got no disk and the seller claimed that she was never given a disk with it what is the best way to start fresh as i have 6 years worth of **** from 2 previous users all over the place and before any one says it control+f11 does nothing on my system please help... If i need to do a clean install what is the best way to go about doing this...
You can also chat with the Dell support at their site http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/chat/hardware_chat?c=us&l=en&s=gen and explain your issue, they might give you dimension cd along with drivers cd free or direct you to Dell spare parts store to buy them.Call
You can then reformat your drive and install.I own Dimension 82 since 2002 and when needed to reinstall last year and couldn't find my cd package I chated with Dell support and received free the cd package.You can try.

If after hit control F11 nothing happen, probably you don't have a restore partition. Check that first.
If not you need to reformat your drive by reinstalling windows (you DO have that cd) and then reinstall the additional software that came with your 8200 (all that stuff is downloadable from dell website)
