What os are you using? if you have the tag still attached, download and run belarc advisor (from cnet or do a simple search). you can then install and run the program, write down the serial number for the os (xp, mem, 2000, etc). if the serial number has an oem in it, it means it needs to be re-installed using an oem cd. (any oem cd can be used, so long as you use the key provide on your windows coa tag). if it came with original retail discs, any retail disc will re-install the os using your same coa.
if the pc is already able to be usable as is, and just needs to have programs and other files removed, re-installing windows is not needed.
just go to start, settings, control panel, add/remove programs and remove any that you don't need. you can then delete any files and folders for things you have saved to the computer and longer want to keep. otherwise you can just save them to cd/dvds for later use.

there are two other options you may also want to consider.
first, once you determine the type of windows that you have, and saved the product key from the belarc advisor (print it if you can so as to have it handy), you can go to ebay and purchase a cd without a coa (certificate of authenticity) for a few dollars, (usually under $5), or you can switch to a linux os (free open source software os such as ubuntu) and install it, unfortunately i don't know if they have a media plaing program available that operates under linux systems.

hope this is of some help to you.

- what do u understand by "reboot disk " ?
- and by "factory settings" ?! software configuration ?

if u have no CD's (the OS and it;s configurations installed by the asambeler of u;re system, the so called recovery disk) u;'ll have to do a fresh OS install and use the computer as any other computer ! If u want to use it as a media player, considering that is an older system, i recomand a linux OS, becouse they are faster and u;ll need the free procesor power for some video playing...

I can't install AUTOCAD 2009 in my windows XP computer.It asks to install direct 3D


Most probably your hardware ie graphic card do not support software requirements.

Autocad 2009 system requirements for Win XP.
32-bit AutoCAD 2009
Running under Windows XP:
•Microsoft Windows XP SP2 operating system
•Intel® Pentium® 4 processor or AMD Athlon®, 2.2 GHz or greater
or
Intel or AMD Dual Core processor, 1.6 GHz or greater
•1 GB RAM
•750 MB free hard disk space for installation
•1024x768 VGA with true color
•Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 (SP1 or higher)
If you are using AutoCAD for 3D modeling, you should bump up your system as follows:
•Intel Pentium 4 processor or AMD Athlon, 3.0 GHz or greater
or
Intel or AMD Dual Core processor, 2.0 GHz or greater
•2 GB RAM or greater
•2 GB of additional free hard disk space
•1,280 x 1,024 32-bit color video display adapter (true color) 128 MB or greater, OpenGL or Direct3D capable workstation class graphics card.

Hope it helps.

You'll need the cd if you want to reinstall your operating system. Try system restore and see how far back you can restore it.

You motherboard uses a "Socket A" CPU and therefore has limits to how high you can go.. I would recommend the XP 2200 or 2400+ as a good choice, but you can make your own choice.
