    Do you have pc restore? You can try this first-to restore to a date previous to the virus. Do you actually want to reinstall windows? If you do a new installation this will reformat your drive. I tend to do this every year or so for a comletely clean installation.

Easy enough To format your hard drive, insert the installation DVD(Vista) and go through the options until you get to choose which partition to install Vista on and just click the button at the bottom that says "Format".

Much the same in XP

Possible your hard-drive has gone to a better place.
If you have a spare laptop HDD, try swapping it first. It obviously will not boot into Windows, but it may at least let you format and install from a USB stick.

After I reformat my Dell inspiron 700m it doesn't work the sound and video, and the drivers for them doesn't match for them how could I solve it?


Reinstall Windows from the DELL CD-ROMs that were shipped with the computer.
Or, telephone DELL, and order a replacement set of "System Restore" CD-ROM disks.
Or, access http://support.dell.com and click "Detect My System" and the web-site will guide you to the correct device-drivers for your Dell motherboard.

My system starts windows then immediately restarts the computer I have ran diagnostics and I got an error in the DTS?


Sounds like you have a virus. You might have to take it down and reformat it...which means putting everything back in. I hope you saved some files, if not you might be able to go in through safe mode, but if any of your files require drivers that are missing to transfer, you might be at some loss.

My Dell Inspiron 700 laptop with Windows XP suddenly will not boo


Remove the hard drive, then see if you can boot to the XP CD. If you can, then the Hard DIsk Drive has most likely failed. Reseat the HDD and try booting to CD again. If problem comes back, try a new hard drive.

I want to restore my dell laptop to factory settings


You need the system disks from the manufacturer, Dell to restore the computer to factory defaults. The system disks come in two forms, windows disks, and computer specific system disks. I am unsure of the disks that come with your notebook, but most likely they are system specific.
To restore the system, put the disk in the drive, restart the computer and after the POST (power on self test) push the F12 button. This will bring up the one-time boot screen allowing you to boot off of the CD. The next step is to format the computer and windows should begin to reinstall.
As for anti-virus, I use Antivira Anti-Virus Personal. It's free and can be downloaded from the link below.

Best of luck.
