Depends on what you have to work with here

If it a Off the Shelf System you can use a Wiping Utility like Boot & Nuke to wipe the HDD totally destroying all the data written to it and then use the System Makers Recovery Disc to return the System to a Factory Fresh Install.

If you have a White Box you still use the Wiping Utility and this time using the Original Supplied Install disc's reinstall the OS then the drivers for all your Hardware and any software for specific Hardware that you have. Things like Printers, Scanners and so on and then finally any Software that you purchased with the system new.

After you finish this you will need to apply any OS Updates, Hot Fixes and or Service Packs that may have been released since your Install Media was made.
