You need to use the Recovery cds that came with your computer. Insert the Installation cd in the cd drive, reboot the computer and select format and restore from the menu.
If you do not have the Recovery cds, then a Windows cd will format and install XP, you will need to use the license (productID, that is on the sticker on the back of the unit)

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

How do I delete everything that is on my dell dimension 3000 and reinstall the original software that came with the computer?


First, you need to find the original installation disks that came with your computer. There's a Dell System Recovery disk that will wipe your computer and reinstall everything as if it had just come from the factory. Insert the Recovery CD, restart your computer, and press F11 or F12 to access the boot menu. When you get the boot menu, select the CD/DVD ROM drive as your boot device. This will lead you through the re-install process.

The drivers you need for your system can be downloaded here:

Your computer has a recovery partition which is hidden. If you needed to restore your computer you would access this recovery program by pressing CTRL +F11. This option would restore you computer to factory specs with all drivers for the orginal hardware.

Hope this helps.

Dell dimension 3000 desk top, does not turn on ?


It's one of two problems: bad power supply, or bad motherboard. If you are electro-mech inclined, remove the power supply. Take it to your local computer repair shop, and ask for one just like that one.
Reinstall, power up should (most of the time) fix this problem. If still no power, you need a new mb. Return to the shop, ask them to replace mb. This repair should be right around $250.0 - tops. Any more than that - replace computer.
Hope this helps. Either way, if you wouldn't mind taking the time to rate my response, it would be much appreciated!
Thanx and good luck.
