I guess you mean how do I reformat and reinstall my OS to factory default? Just do a recovery from the program that came with your manufacture or pop in the recovery CD.

If you are using a Windows CD, just pop that in (note the boot order your bios is set to, make sure CD is first before the HD). And format and install.

Ok..is this computer a brand name like HP, Sony, Dell, etc? Because these manufacture provide you a recovery disc or an application that can be run on your computer to restore it back to the original content.
