I have a Dell Inspiron 530s computer. I wanted to wipe my hard drive clean and reinstall windows vista, which my computer was running before,but when I used the cd's that came with my system it didn't wipe off the hard drive and now I don't have my d drive and my e drive is now my cd drive. I have only 230 gb of memory left.What do I do to fix this and get my computer back to the original way it was when I purchased it.
Thanks for any help in solving this problem for me. I'm really new at the computer,so wlii need things stated as simple as possible.
