I'm trying to reset a friends old dell desktop to factory settings; erasing all files. I've backed up everything that he wants kept. I've tried a couple different ways with no luck. I'm not sure if it originally came with an installation CD, but I def don't have one now.

 

Any help?

:welcome:   parker902008,

 

To avoid us possibly suggesting things already tried can you let us know what you have done so far.

 

I'm not sure if it originally came with an installation CD, but I def don't have one now.

 

 

Do you have or do you need to obtain the Microsoft XP product key.
