Re: Need some advice..
If you have a windows xp disk, or a linux cd probably has it, but if you put one of those cds in then there will be an option to clear the partition on the hard drive, along with reformat, and a few other installing options that are self explanitory. If you could first get the computer running and download cpu-z a free and really small program that tells you the specs of your computer, post them here and we can help you if you want to try and possibly upgrade it.
