Dell Vostro V13 Reformat?

Alright, I will tell you the story of my laptop. I bought a Dell Vostro V13 last year sometime (last July I believe?) and it was shipped to me with Ubuntu on it, which is what I wanted. I then later put Windows on it by booting W7 from a USB drive, and I thought all was well from there. It recently crashed on me and now when I turn the computer on it brings me to the Windows start-up repair.

I was wondering if there is a simple way to completely crash the whole HD and essentially make the computer start from scratch, with no Windows only my Ubuntu.

No, unless for some reason the HDD came with a recovery partition.

You mean you only want a fresh copy of Ubuntu on the computer?
