If you have the Restore CD's, figure out which one is the first (labeled install first or disk 1 or Windows, something like that), put it in the drive and see if it automatically starts. If it doesn't, reboot with the CD in the drive and see if it boots to that CD.

HINT: Your user's manual should have instructions. If not, call DELL customer support.

Your recovery CDs are always a different color

Usually orange or purple instead of blue which are other recovery CDs, like applications and/or drivers. I hoped you backed up everything before you format and reinstall.

I think I only have 1 CD that is labled as the recovery CD the others are Dell apps. I did buy an external hard drive to back everything up. Thanks for the advice!! :) I will post how it works out.
