Sure, no problem. Follow these instructions for doing a clean install: Clean Install Windows 7

Step 8 tells you how to format.

To put it simple, insert the Windows DVD and then format the drive in which you want to install the OS later. This way, no traces are left behind.

Note: Take a backup of all docs u want to preserve.

Hi guys ,,, just simple question!
Just to understand up to my PC knowledge

By putting the Windows CD into the Laptop and re install the WINDOWS that means the system has been formatted and new windows take place with no traces are left behind! same as NEW?

Sorry if this is just stupid question but i really need to know

So new install windows means system formatted and no traces are left behind ... and now i start downloading what ever new programs and softwares i need same as i just purchased the laptop!
