I just purchased this Dell Mini laptop from a pawn shop not even a month ago. It was the only thing I could afford, and I needed a computer. Obviously, it had been used, but it didn't matter to be because it was better than nothing.

It worked fine until messages kept popping up saying that I don't have enough room on my hard drive. I tried to delete anything that I didn't use or need, but it wouldn't let me delete the stuff that I really didn't need. I guess I deleted the wrong thing because it won't let me create a new user at all, and I think that it messed with my Firefox browser because I cannot access my bookmarks, nor can I click on any links when I search for them on Google. I can't stream any online videos, I can't use my 'back' button.

I have no knowledge of computers, and I have no idea what I deleted, and I can't restore them in my Recycle bin. I've tried to look up ways to completely clear my drive, but I don't have floppy disks, or any other kind of disk. My computer is too small for any storage device larger than an SD card.

Is there any way that I can clear my drive using my SanDisk SD card? How can I fix my laptop? How can I restore the programs that I need, and delete the ones that I don't need. I'm frustrated and desperate! Please help! :confused: :mad:

If it's a Dell there should be a hidden partition which will restore it to factory settings. Not sure which F command for yours but for mine I press Ctrl + F11 on bootup to get the option.
