my pc is toasted, I got this gateway solo 9500 laptop from a friend to get me through. This laptop is loaded with old files & took me 25 min.s for it to just start up win. xp-pro. What can I do to clean out the hard-drive?? Or, any advice on what to do to reset the laptop?

If you are sure that neither you or your friend who gave you the laptop has any files on the hard drive that may be needed, than you can always use the Windows Restore CD to reset the laptop to factory conditions. If you don't have the Restore CD then depending on the age of the laptop you may be able to make one yourself using a partition on the system made by the manufacturer. If you are unable to make one yourself then you can simply call the manufacturer to send you one, they usually charge about $15.00 for this.
