SOURCE: Can you tell me how

I don't know what a toshiba is, but if it has a windows operating system it will adjust the amount automatically. it stands for Random Access Memory and it requires just enough to run your system and programs installed. If it is too low Windows will adjust it automatically, if it's too high it will do the same. the RAM varies accordingly to each computer. If you go messing with that dude, RAM is going to be the least of your worries. Ha Ha.

SOURCE: i want to format then reinstall the os

The best way to do this is to prepare well ahead of time by making a Slipstreamed SP3 cd to aid in the installation. This will save you days updating the service packs and security patches from Microsoft that you'll have to do if you use your original install cd. You can learn how to do this by reading Slipstream SP3 and EG Slipstream XP
Here are a series of resources to help you on your way.

Remove Hard Drive, connect it to a USB to Hard Drive "Dongle" & recover your files that way. When you connect your drive & dongle it will "Show Up" in My Computer as a "Drive" as such you can Copy, Cut & Paste between windows..Of course you would have to use a friends PC to do it as yours now is inoperative. When you have all what you want. Reformat the drive and put it back into your laptop and reinstall windows and apps.

HDD Reformatting

why not reinstall sp3 again for windows xp if it freezes then it might be looking for files that don't exist anymore. If the virus attatched itself to your files they may have been removed when you ran your virus software. you don't need to format to reload windows. Just simply do a clean reinstall on C drive.
