Is it safe to completely wipe an Omen PC? I'm worried it might mess something up.

What do you mean wipe ? Physically or rebuild Windows ? You can do both, just take care and work gently.

 Hi    @Roseta

 

Wiping the PC and restoring it to a 'new' state will help bring your system back to a working state when it started or did not work properly. This is quite common and is a feature of Windows 10.

You can choose to save your personal files or delete everything you need.

Go to Start > Settings > Update & security > Recovery, click Get started and select the appropriate option.
