In order to format a computer you need a operating system disc, like Windows XP, Vista, Linux, etc. Pop the disc in, restart, and boot from the disc. Enless you have a recovery partition then you just hit the key when the bios comes up, or the boot loader for recovery.

If you have a Dell with Dell and it uses a software RAID, then you can download them from Dell's site.
Go to support.dell.com and enter your service tag or the system type and you can access the drivers.

Just reformatted my dell dimension e510, prob connecting to net


Hi there.
Use the Dell tools system software CD to install the LAN (network) drivers, just pop the CD into the drive and install the CD, once it is installed a new window will pop up giving you an option to install drivers and/or utilities, just look for the LAN or network drivers and restart the PC when prompted the LAN drivers will be installed and you will be able to connect to the internet.
Post back if you have anymore problems.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Dell Dimension 9200 "system does not support installed processor


This is really hard to say. Maybe he messed around in the BIOS settings and tried to overclock your processor. First thing I would do is to go into the BIOS (press F2 during startup) and check every setting. You can also reset it to default and see if that makes a difference.

Another possibility is that there is an issue with the RAM. Did you (or he) install new RAM? Look here to find a list of possible issues.

Check Dell's support page, to see if you can upgrade your BIOS.
Check your Device Manager (click Windowskey+R, type devmgmt.msc) for any unusual entries.

That's all I can think of right now. But please come back and post your findings (even if everything looks ok), so we can look into other places.
