I would like to figure out how to format my hard drive. I have viruses on there, and it won't let me delete them, or run ANYTHING on my computer.
Dell pcs manufactured before september 2004 will need a recovery disc to restore it to the factory settings..
In case the computer was bought after 2004 there is a factory image saved in the hard disc.
As soon as you turn the computer on press CTRL+F11 KEY together or CTRL+F12 KEY together.
You will get a screen to do a factory restore.
NOTE-ALL DATA WILL BE LOST IF YOU DO THE ABOVE MENTIONED STEPS BUT THE COMPUTER WILL BE NEW AGAIN.
If the above mentioned steps don't work or the computer is older that sept 2004 you will need a WINDOWS Operating system disc depending on your operating system Eg-xp,vista,win7 or you can also use a recovery disc which is usually provided by the manufacturer which is DELL
Hope this will fix your problem.If not please reply
Thanks and regards
LONG LIVE THE GEEKS!!
