Need help to total wipe out my inspiron 1525 and reinstall the operating system.

This question is not answered

I don't have the time to spend on the phone with some tech support who can't speak english and does nothing but mess my computer up more. I am having massive problems with my laptop and I want to wipe it clean and start over. Does anyone know the procedure to do this?

Thanks
