How do I do a clean reinstall


You just need a Windows Operating System Disc. It will walk you through the process. When it comes to the part where it see that you already have a windows operating system on the drive, you have the option of deleting it and clearing the partion then reformat the drive using NTFS Quick.
Make sure you use the same version of the windows operating system that you already have unless you buy a new copy. In other words, if your Certificate of Authentication (COA) sticker (located on the case of the computer) says you have Windows XP Professional, you can't reinstall with a Windows XP Home version because when it comes to the point where it asks you for the key to activate you will be in trouble.

Reformatting


I assume you want to reformat it and then reinstall some sort of operating system. The esiest way to do this is to reformat it during the reinstallation of the operating system. If you are using Windows XP, it gives you the option of using FAT32 or NTFS file system to format the drive. If you are using Windows 98 or ME, you can boot to the CD and use the fdisk/format commands found on the CD.
