Q: How do I reformat my Dell Dimension B110 Intel Celeron D processor 325 (2.53 GHz, 533 FSB) Genuine Windows XP Home….. back to factory settings…obviously the warranty has run out so I cannot use the pre-programmed they had included….I have to do it manually.

I did it once with the help of Dell and $$ a few years ago but they were going too fast and I did not take good notes…..

    If you are referring to the recovery drive that Dell places on their system that never expires. As for installing the OS you can use the Windows discs that came with the system to re-install Windows OS. Place the disc in and boot to the CD rom drive. Then follow instructions to install. You will have the option to reformat and will loose everything on the drive but it may be the quickest and easiest method of re-installing the OS. Then use The disc with Dell Drivers to re-install all windows drivers to your PC. This is lengthy process.

    Here are detailed instructions from the Dell website:
