    all computers format the same way.

    if ur comp didn't come with an XP cd (windows xp) then download xp corp with bittorrent, inseart the cd after burning it and restart, boot from cd, and go through the setup steps and after a minutes or so u will be formatting ur hard drive.

    Whatever you do, do NOT remove the recovery partition that is undoubtably on your computer. This holds all your chipset drivers and such and your comp will seriously suck and you will have a hell of a time getting it working right if you remove that partition.
    Just a warning...

    This is really no big deal, K.

    Before the format, get and run My Drivers.
    It will collect all the drivers currently installed on your machine.

    Burn the resulting driver file collection to CD and you're set...you CAN delete the recovery partition if you want.
