Hi Sheferkhan,

With permission I would like to add one more tip here. After manually reinstalling the Microsoft Windows operating system on your Dell desktop, you must also reinstall the Dell device drivers and applications in the correct order for your computer to work properly. Click here to find instructions on installing the drivers in correct order.
