Hi,

Check with Fujitsu as each OEM has their own methods.

You mean reinstall the OS completely? If you have the Vista DVD's you can do this however be
sure to totally backup your data off the drive and you will need to reinstall your programs. If you
do not have Vista Disks you can buy them from your system maker cheap. If you do not care
about existing programs then you can do a complete fresh install - just select the format options
which wipes the entire disk (this erases all data as well).

Some System makers use Recovery Partitions as well as other methods to allow you to revert
back to a completely fresh installation. So check with your System maker to see what options
you have to do that - and it certainly can be done - just a matter of knowing the processes the
System maker put in place for you.
