I'm asuming that the seagate drive is the one you are booting from. Save all of your data, etc. first on an external HDD or CDs/DVDs. Make sure the BIOS is set to boot from the CD drive before the HDD. Boot from a Windows CD if you have one and format the partition. Of course you will then lose all of your data and programs, which will have to be reinstalled. Or you could use a Dell recovery partition or recovery CDs to do this. In that case you would bring the computer back to factory settings.
