I HAVE A COMPAQ HP DX6120 AND I DON'T KNOW HOW TO OPEN THE BIOS . I NEED TO FORMATE MY COMPUTER AND I HAVEN'T CD BACK UP THANKS FOR YOUR HELP


You can get into the BIOS using the F2 or the DEL button. You need to keep tapping it as soon as you turn the computer on.

To Format the computer you would need an Operating System Disk. Like the windows XP /Vista /Windows 7 disk...

You need to boot from any of these disks and then you will be able to format the computer.

hi sir..There's a formatting option available during the install. Just boot from the Vista CD and select the partition where the old installation is. Windows will do the formatting for you. if you don't have vista you can download it from the following site and then boot your system

I GOT HP Pavilion dv 6915nr.... with windows


Hello
how did you format you computer? if you didnt delete the recovery partition you can start recovery to press F11 when bios starts.

HP should also be able to send you recovery disks for vista.
Im sorry to say but warranty doesn't cover formatting the disk, that is not a hardware failure

Installing windows vista on compaq presario 750 computer stops responding during installation now can't boot or startup


Vista installations inbult drive format tool is not so good, and causes errors, so i recomment u format the drive with some linux live cd's or some other bootup type partition tools. Then do a clean install. The problem should be solved if u hav min system requirements for vista.
