I want to wipe my hdd, reinstall the OS, and start over.
Ok, so these are the disks I know I have to reinstall or that would be beneficial to reinstall:
SB x-fi disc
Linksys wireless adapter disc
linksys router disc (do I even need to do this one again?)
These most likely too:
Dell E196FP LCD Monitor User documentation
- html user documentation
- drivers (INF, ICM, and CAT files)
Dell XPS 600 Resource CD
- device drivers
- diagnostics and utilities
- computer documentation
These I'm pretty sure I don't need. Not having them won't affect anything; they are just programs, right?:
cyberlink powerDVD 5.5 (have two of these for some reason)
Sonic DigitalMedia v.7 and MyDVD 6.11 LE Software
I also have a word perfect CD, but that is garbage.
I was looking at this guide: Installing Windows XP - NeoSmart Technologies Wiki
That is where I came up with the key hitting thing. Do I just reboot my computer and then hit the key and the proper time to wipe the hardrive and reinstall the OS, or do I have wipe the hardrive some other way first. I'm assuming it is the latter method.
