    I am going to reformat my hard drive on my laptop. It runs slow and is having problems freezing.

    Before I get started, I need to know how to do something.

    I use my laptop and hook up to my server at work. What am I going to look for in configurations before I reformat? Once I reformat will I have to manually change these?

    You need to take a look in the network control panel for your workgroup name, computer name, whether you are specifying an IP address......write down everything on all the tabs.
