Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
If your system is giving you so much performance problem and you have fixed it now and then, you it may be time to reformat the system.
To start you must have the OS CD you want to run on your system. It may be the same as the one you are running or a new version. I will advice you get the original CD of the OS this way you can be sure you are installing a complete and certified version of the OS. It will also be bootable. You should also have the copy of all the software you want to run on the system. You may also download the latest drives for the OS before start the re-installation.
Before starting, move all your document and other important files to the D drive if you have a Drive on your system or to an external drive.
Put the OS CD on the CD-ROM and restart the system. As the system boots it will prompt you to press any key to boot from the CD-ROM. at this time press any key and the system will boot from the system. It will prompt you for upgrade or custom installation. Chose custom installation and you will be prompted to choose the drive to install into. Chose drive C and chose the delete option. (Note that this will wipe out all you have previously on this drive).
You will be returned to previous window (with drive and option to delete format etc) click continue and when prompted to format click continue. (Note: this will give you a clean installation with the files and error in the old installation).
After the formatting process the OS is temporarily load to the hard disk and the installation continues. Read very prompting properly before accepting any option provided. Follow the on screen guide and complete the installation. at the end of the installation you will be prompted to enter the computer name and password you can change the default suggested computer name and enter your preferred name. Then enter your drsired password.
When you complete this process you have installed a new OS on your system. Update the driver on the system with the drive CD or the downloaded drivers.
Install other necessary software and your system is as good as new.
