  1. There are no key commands to format a hard disk on any computer, ever.

    You are aware what formatting does, correct?

    Yes, but is there a way to format my laptop because I want to get rid of everything and leave it how I bought it
  3. There is a button for the 1501. its F8. Just did the system restore about an hour ago. Try it it works!!!!! http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/dsn/en/document?c=us&cs=19&dl=false&l=en&s=dhs&docid=3E48AE3870775D64E040A68F5B2877D4&doclang=en
  4. On any dell system from that era you have a ghost partition. To find out if you have the partition, after the dell splash screen when you turn on the computer, the next screen will be black with a blue bar at the top with www.dell.com in the blue bar. On this screen hold the ctrl key and tap f11 once every second and it will load the restore partition. When it loads, click restore and then ok and norton ghost will do the rest.

    Hope this helps
