Hey there,

I went through a long procedure months ago because of a virus and software problems. Now, my problems run much deeper including much of my software and windows. What is the best way to erase my hard drive, so I can reinstall everything. I tried using the XP disks which did not work. Perhaps a dos command?

Possibly, you will need to boot the PC and keep tapping the delete key until the PC enters set up. Change the boot order to CD ROM Drive then hard drive, press F10 then press enter, load the XP CD then type Y then press enter, as it reboots, look for press any key to load from CD, press enter
