    Hi all.

    So I want to erase my harddrive and install windows on it again. I have an Asus G74Sx which I know has a copy of windows on it that you can reformate the harddrive without using an external CD or USB. Would this feature work if I use a program like dban or do I have to extract the windows file from somewhere on to a USB.

    Thanks in advance

    Yo don't need to wipe the drive. Your laptop should have a recovery program installed to reinstall the OS. From what I've searched online you have to press the F9 button at bootup to access the recovery feature. Just backup any data you may need.
