For the life of me, i cannot find how to restore a dell 1737 studio laptop!

I really need this back to factory settings- no restore points are good enough.

Any help please! : (

Its running on vista

Thank you

no, would take about 5-7 deep formats to clear the drive. Dell restore will just be a quick format and make it extremely easy to recover her naked photos

how about I just pop across the border and sort it for you :thumbsup: :?

try putting in each of the restore disks and booting up, the one labelled disc 1 might be your best bet :)

Deleting it just makes marks it as hidden and makes the space available for the operating system to use.
