use the recovery disk that came with the laptop and do a system recovery... but you will lose all your data.

What's the "service tag number" on the case sticker?
(Assuming it's the Dell Inspiron 1150 in your computer specifications information)

Here is the Dell support and software site that's specific only to that laptop.

I highly suggest that you save this site in your browser favorites/bookmarks list so you can refer to it when needed.

If all the device drivers don't get installed during the reinstall of Windows XP, you'll need to download the needed drivers from here and then install them.

Is there a particular reason why you want to revert that laptop back to its original May 2004 condition, complete with all the outdated and useless bloatware?
