Hi, um sorry this is probably going to seem like a stupid question but yah. I'm trying to reformat my old dell laptop. It has grown extremely slow over time and I wish to bring it back to speed. I don't have anything on the old drive that I wish to use anymore, so what would be my best way of going about this. I was planning on using system restore as I have windows XP, but Dell happened to have disabled it when they made it and I had never turned it on. Is there any other way that windows can make this easier. What would any of you suggest I do in this situation.

If Dell gave you a restore CD I would use that to wipe the hard drive and reinstall the Operating System. That is the cleanest way to do it with a Dell, that I have found anyways.
