Windows 7 Re-Install

Jump to solution

Hi. i plan on selling my Inspiron 2305 on ebay and i want to reformat the hard drive so i can give the new owner a clean slate if i can sell it. I was wondering if i can use the OS Reinstallation disc provided with 2305 to put Windows 7 back on along with the Drivers and Utilities disc also provided. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Yes, you can use the reinstallation disk and either download the latest drivers or use the driver disk.  You may aslo be able to use the factory restore option, accessible through F8 before Windows loads or from the OS.

See my wiki A Clean Install of Windows 7. I advise using the DBAN if any sensitive personal information has been on your computer.
