Use the restore disk to restore the computer back to factory specs after you format it.
Before you format it, back up the files you want to a large thumb drive, a cd-rw, or using a network.
if anyone in the Frisco/North Dallas area wants to make some extra $ tomorrow, ill be in that area and will need either a new harddriver put in it, or have the info backed up onto something, and need it restored. email me if interested. [email protected]
