Question about Dell Dimension C521 PC Desktop
How do I restore my Dell Dimension C521? I am trying to blank my hard drive and restore the original factaory settings.
You need the C521 recovery disk, from Dell. Set the BIOS to boot from CD and start the system.
If it gives you the option of "Complete Reinstall" or "Repair", choose Complete Reinstall.
If it does not, or if it does not work - i.e., it always reads the disk and tries to maintain as much data as it can, you need to first wipe out the hard drive; there are many "Disk Wipe" utilities out there. I'd suggest using a boot disk such as DBAN (www.dban.org).
