Good luck, and if you get stuck, give me a shout, I do this very thing often where I work.
Thanks for the tip. I have the OS re-install disc that came with my Dell, as well as the drivers and utilities discs. I'm wondering if I will run into any problems during the process using my Logitech mouse. Should I switch back to my Dell mouse that came with the computer? I know there was software that I had to install when I purchased the Logitech mouse and that makes me think once all that stuff is wiped off, then it won't recognize the mouse. Make sense?
