I have a Windows Vista 32bit M8075a
The Desktop has gotten to the point where I simply want to reinstall Vista and start from scratch.
When I purchased the PC it didn't come with a CD like my old PCs did.
I have presumed that my Recovery D: partition has the software on there to wipe and reinstall the PC.
I have looked thru help and Control Panel as well as this website and can't find a tutorial on how to do this?!
I am not a very technical person all though I used to be.
Can some please explain to me how to format and make my PC like it was when I first purchased it.
I have backed up everything onto an external harddrive and ready to go.
Thanks in advance.

You can also burn a Recovery DVD set to boot from and format /reinstall. I highly recommend that you burn a set ,in a case of hdd failure you will lose the files in recovery partition too.
