    I bought my PC about 3 1/2 years ago with Windows XP Home Edition pre-installed. I didn't receive any discs with the PC, although I did receive a Microsoft XP Home Edition booklet and the C of A is attached to the side of my PC.

    I want to re-format my PC and re-install Windows XP Home Edition. What do I need to do and how do I do it?

    Thanks

    After pressing the power button begin tapping F11 until you get into recovery partition.
