Question about Computers & Internet
Assuming you have a copy of XP and the License key, you simply start the computer with the CD inserted. be sure to press the key to start the CD install process when prompted.
after the CD starts, it will ask you if you want to install. Do this accept the agreement and it should prompt you to the fact that you already have an installation. Choose to install over the existing version not as an additional instance.
Here is the key...in the next step it will ask you where to install windows. choose your C:\ drive and delete that partition. you'll have to confirm a couple times. This removes the old data. Then choose the same un-formated partition, allow windows to use all the space and choose NTFS Quick format. let it run and you will have a brand new installation of XP.

All you need to do is boot your laptop from the XP install cd instead of the hard drive. The install cd asks if you would like to format the partition(s) and prompts you that you are about to erase all data on the drive. To enable booting from the cd drive, press f2 or Del as the computer is booting, go into the BIOS and change the boot sequence so that cd is first instead of hd(some number).
