    Can you boot up the phone and get into the Settings ? If so then you can go to:

    Settings -> SD card & phone storage -> Factory data reset -> Confirm

    If you can't boot into android , heres how it should work I beleive:

    so you are trying to change the Google accounts on your phone? you can do that without a factory reset:

    Why not go to settings : Applications -> Manage applications -> Scroll to "Google apps" -> Select and clear data -> Now go to the Android Market -> It will prompt you to log in -> Log in with the new account :)
