How to start over on Hard Drive
I would like to set my computer back to factory settings. I have the
recovery discs already made and everything important saved somewhere else.
How can I just make it back to original?? format?

Refer to the manual that came with your computer for the exact procedure. It
varies from computer mftr. to computer mftr. and sometimes from model to
model.

If you didn't receive a manual with your computer, the information will be
at the computer mftr.'s tech support website. Or you can call.

Normally, you go into BIOS and set the boot order to boot 1st from the CD/DVD
drive, insert the disk, reboot and follow directions!
