Hi, I have a dell latitude d600 and I was just wondering if there is a way to reset my computer back to factory settings? Any help would be much appreciated.

If you have the recovery CDs or XP disks run the install will format and reinstall to the factory setting. If you do not have the Dell CD you should order them while you can.

If your computer has the recovery partition you should be able to use it to reset your system.

If you do so, disconnect everything except the mouse, monitor and keyboard,
