I have a Dell Inspiron N040 laptop. I have been meaning to format it for a while cause it has what I suspect is a virus. However, when I went to format it by F8 key, then selecting "Repair your Computer" in the advanced Boot Option, it simply just simply took me to the windows menu as normal. I tried it a hundred times and every time it loaded up as normal.
Can anyone advise how I can reformat my laptop or fix it so I can reformat with the F8 key?
