Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1000 Notebook ?

How do you format the hard drive on Dell Inspiron 1000. I have the restore system disk and don't have anything on it worried about losing...just need to format and start fresh..it's got too many issues and will not allow me to "restore" to earlier dates. Thanks

Answers :

On a Dell you would go into Start, All programs, Accessories, and System Tools. Here you should see a line that says "Recovery" or "Restore." Click one of those and the Dell should do the rest.
I'd put ubuntu on it, if it's a inspiron 1000, should run ok. If you have the restore disks from dell, just turn it on, pop in the cd, then reboot, the pc should boot from cd, then just follow the promps, make sure you delete all partitions, format thorough (not quick NTFS), use the whole disk for windows
