If you want to just get rid of virus/malware and other nasties, then you dont need to , but its always best to regularly back important stuff up.
Follow this guide to clean your Operating system
http://www.fixya.com/support/r5272277-secure_clean_computers

If however you need to re-install windows with a normal windows disc, everything will be lost and you will need the drivers for your motherboard and other equipment.
If you are doing a factory restore/recovery then you will loose everything, but all your drivers and programs that where on your computer when new will be there.

Feel free to ask if anything is not clear, or you need more information

There are two reasons for this problem

1. Windows XP may be corrupted, You re-load the operating system. Preferably after formating
the HDD.

2. The processor may overheat. You clean up the cooling assembly (FAN, HEATSINK, and
(apply fresh heatsink compount on the processor)

Dell Dimensions 2300 hard drive replcement


Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 750GB Hard Drive
goes for about 180 bucks and it a IDE PATA Drive I do belive since your dimensions 2300 motherboard 3T237 is only IDE and does not have SATA

your motherboard can also handle 1 gig of ram so if you havent maxed out your motherboard yet I would highly suggest it. Ram for it wont cost you much either.

I would add the newer drive as a secoundary drive since I am sure that your operating system is pre loaded.

or you can also add external drives to your system as well for more storage as well and they are starting to come down in price as well. you have options it all depends what ya wanna do with it.

This sounds like the hard drive is failing. At this point you will need to run a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. If the repair doesn't take, then reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system. If you have any issues during or after the format or install, then the hard drive has failed and will need to be replaced.
