Hi, I was just wondering how to format my computer and keep just all the basic settings. So I mean basically, have the settings and programs on it I got when I purchased it.(Without sending it to a technician)
Yea, Restore discs. If you use those discs IE boot up the computer with the disc in the CDROM drive it will guide you through restoring to the way it was when you got it (including all the programs that were on it when it was new)
If you just have an OS disc (XP, Vista etc) you do the same thing, but the OS is the only thing that is put on there.
