    I've tried googleing this, but I'm trying to format an old Dell laptop I have and give it to my cousin.

    I've tried and tried, but I can't find a way. Does anyone know how to format a Dell laptop?

    Are you trying to restore it to factory settings or wipe it clean? If it is A, then you should have a disk to restore it to (I don't think Dell has the restore option on a hard drive partition... but I'm not 100% sure). If it is B, then again you should have no trouble with a Windows disk to blow it up. I've never really had an issue with my Dell (or any other computer) for this kind of thing. Just make sure you download any drivers you might need for the system before you nuke it.
