Question about Computers & Internet
Turn pc off with the system cd in the drive and reboot to cd. It will ask if you want to repair or install. Just follow the prompts to do a full reinstall. It will ask if your sure, and that all data on drive will be lost. Click yes and it will uninstall and reinstall everything to factory settings. Then boot the driver cd, and it will let you know what drivers are needed for your pc.
Make sure that your cd drive in bios is the first to start and not the hard drive. You can change that later if you want but I leave the cd drive as first so if there is a problem, I can use the disk to boot from. Also, only leave mouse,keyboard,and monitor plugged in. Unplug printers, scanners, ect:
After that, make sure you do all the update's and have a good antivirus program installed. I use Avast free and love it. Don't run 2 virus program. They will cause a conflick, so if you have one on the disk from the restore,remove it from add/remove first.
Good luck, it's easy to do and much easier that removing some of the virus's out there, and fixing some of the hardware conflicks
