Question about Dell Dimension 5100 (D51L1) PC Desktop
I know with the Dimension 5100 PC you can reload Windows...you lose everything, but I fogot how. I know you do it when you are booting up the computer and hit one of the F keys and another key at the same time. HELP me please
Hi kra, you say windows is going to crash soon? Ok no prob, your going to need your original Cd's or dvd, that came with your dell. Once you have the first disc in there, it should boot to that cd and start a wizard to reinstall windows on your puter, if it doesn't you'll have to press f12 after the first screen you see and tell it to boot from cd, you don't have to press it 20 times, just once, till you hear a beep. That simple. But Why reformat? You've always heard if it ain't broke don't fix it. you may not want to get rid of all your files you have now, in that case do a repair install of windows, if you don't care about anything on there, do a complete install. Make sure to tell it a full format, instead of a quick one, and this whole process should take 45 minits to an hour and a half. Good Luck

Assuming that you have Windows XP home, here is a link that explains how to do a reinstall.
Scroll down about halfway to where it says "Steps to XP clean install"
