I have the same computer. it is really annoying and difficult cos basically, you first have to put in the windows xp CD it comes with and turn in on. It will tell you to press any key to boot from disk and you boot it. Format it onto the partition (not the unpartitioned space) in NTFS (not quick format). Then, once its done, the annoying bit is that you still have to install all the drivers, so there will be a CD called resouce CD, and install the drivers that look important
