as far as problems go... why make it into that big of a deal... enjoy your new toy and if it messes up fix it then... as far as what u should do when u get it a good reformat is always good to clean all the bloat ware off... but and then youd have to reinstall the drivers again... search through the post to see which order to do that
Hopefully you won't have to look for any problems or run into any problems. I would probably reformat since dell puts so much crap on it. Make sure you get the required drivers first, before you reformat.
I agree, until you feel comfortable don't reformat. There are some important things to remember, 1st., dont reformat until you burn the restore cd. 2nd., don't format until you get the dell discs.
I agree , just enjoy the lappy. WHEN/IF you have a problem, post then. Reformat (meaning setup your rig with a clean slate, in lehmans terms) when you are comfortable with the procedure. (and have XP disc + Drivers cd)
