Question about Dell Dimension 4500 PC Desktop
My Dell 4500 with Windows XP Pro is astoundingly slow, so decided to start fresh, reload XP Pro, drivers, software, etc. I have original Windows disc that came with computer. When I put it in and reboot computer, a screen says "press any key to boot from CD", but I want to wipe out the hard drive and reinstall the OS, but I can't get there. Tried to enter start up with "del" as it reboots, nothing happens, so I tried F1, F2, Ctrl, space, no luck getting into start up.
Should I just get a new hard drive and really start fresh?
Have a look at these for more info:
I hope that helps.
