I have a Dell PC (Dimension 4550). It is pretty old, about 4 years old.
I want to erase everything off it and bring it back to the same condition I bought it as.
I have the original disks that came with the computer.

I need to know exactly what to do to wipe everything and restore the whole thing.

Thanks.

start your pc,
open the cd drive - put in the "restore" cd
re-boot your Pc
as it starts press F12
when it gives you the option to choose whic drive to use - choose the cd drive option
Follow the prompts
The Pc will have all existing information on it wiped and replaced with the original windows install.

Regards,

John
