Reformating means you start from scratch with windows, so anything that you have on your computer will be erased such as files, picture,games, programs, bookmarks, etc. So if you really want to reformat, back up anything that you want to keep on a separate disc such as a flash drive or external HD. Simply find you Vista CD/DVD put in the drive bay and reboot when prompted push any key to boot from the disc and it's pretty much explained from there. You will have to reinstall drivers, programs, updates, programs, etc. so be sure you have plenty of time for it.
