Regarding the 3 entries below, you have a Dell computer ?

Dell Solution Center
Dell Support Introduction
i-LEARN My Dell PC

You should have some CD's or a recovery partition. Can you tell me what you have exactly ? Reinstalling the OS shouldn't be that difficult since Dell did probably create a program for that. I'll try to gather some info on how Dell allows you to restore the PC as I'm not familar with Dell computers.

Hello Kim,

Yes, this is a Dell PC... I have a re-installation CD W ME,
a resource CD, a drivers CD and another with the programs
that came with it at the time.

Please advice.

Hello arqa,

That is great news. :) The install procedure should be much easier because Dell has a well documented reinstall guide. In order to read some documents, you will have to select you model from a dropdown box and enter the service tag.

I will list the main documents here. Read them and let me know if there is anything you don't understand. Don't start the reinstall yet. Just create the boot floppy, test it but do not type in format c: for now.

Install Procedure

The installation does not format the hard disk. To do that use the emergency boot diskette (made by going to Start|Settings|Control Panel|Add/Remove Programs|Startup Disk tab or downloaded from here. Boot with that and at the DOS prompt enter format c: and click <Enter>. Once the disk is formatted you can install ME using the procedures given below.

How do I use the Dell™ Windows® Millennium Edition (Me) Operating System CD that came with my Dell computer?

How do I install the Microsoft® Windows® Millennium Edition (Me) operating system from my Dell™ Windows Me Operating System CD?
http://support.dell.com/support/topics/ ... =RG1036680

From the same page : To help you install your operating system, drivers, and related software for your Dell system, view or print step-by-step instructions from the Dell Software Reinstall Guide at: http://support.us.dell.com/us/en/kb/org.
You will have to enter your Dell Model & the Service Tag (that's why I can list the appropriate articles here) Select a category you wish info about from the dropdown box.

If you have questions about a procedure, please include the link to the document since I don't know your references (Model & Tag)

Let me know ok. :)

Please leave this topic open for a few weeks as requested by PM. arqa has some real life issues to handle before reinstalling the system.
