Reformat my computer to windows 7


ATTENTION!
Reformatting a computer will reset it to the factor image, all data must be backed up or it WILL be lost. There are several reasons to reformat a hard drive. A few reasons include but are not limited to: driver issues, virus, cleaning up, getting rid of the computer, etc.

RECOVERY DISKS!
Every new windows 7 owner should know that the new computers are not supplied with recovery disks anymore. The manufacturer allows the user to create one set of disks upon the purchase of a new machine. It is important to create the disks early as driver issues and viruses may arise. In order to create recovery disks on windows 7 you want to click on the start menu. Next, type in recovery in the Start Search option area. Next, click on recovery disk creation and follow the process. It will require that you have about 3 dvds or about 7 cds to create the recovery disk.

REFORMATING HARD DRIVE!
Once the recovery disks have been made reformatting windows 7 is quite simple. Insert the recovery disks into the cd/dvd tray on the machine. You are now going to want to turn the computer off. When the computer has turned off, go ahead and turn it back on. A screen should pop up asking you whether you want to boot from Hard Drive or Disk. Choose the disk option. After you make it this far it is a downhill process. Next you follow the on-screen instruction make sure you reformat the machine, not recover it.

Stop 0x00000024 (0x00190203, 0x82F8FA28, 0x0000102, 0x 00000000) appears on my screen. Blue background. What can I do to repair this?


Your system has suffered an unrecoverable error. Either vital operating system files have been corrupted, deleted or overwritten or your hard drive has failed. I suggest reformatting the drive and reloading the operating system from scratch. This can also be cause by some virus infections currently in the wild ( viruses that are currently circulating the internet) so make sure you boot from a system disk and reformat the drive or drives from this boot disk. Sorry but you have very few chances of a successful recovery from this without reinstalling your operating system.

I need to reformat my PC because I cannot clean the virus on the system. I cannot boot to the recovery disk that came with my PC on start up, even though the CD-Rom is set as primary boot option. So, where...


If the disk has any sort of scratch on it, it will not allow it to boot try cleaning the disk and the CD-ROM Drive, then if that doesn't work call the company that made the computer they should be able to send you a free recovery disk. PS let me know if this works for you.

Acer extensa 4220 wireless problem


I'm not sure if you tried hitting the appropriate key on your keyboard to initialize your wireless network. Check your manual to see which key it is, it is not automatic. Also, make sure you have a wireless card. Click on start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system it will give you a list of all your hardware, Look for 802.11b/g that is the wirless.

Laptop won't boot. it starts and resets to same point all the time.


Most likely you have a virus and it has corrupted the boot files of the OS. Most likely you'll have to reformat the computer with your original OS disk and lose everything. Your only option for saving information would be to perhaps run a check disk and fix the errors or use a Linux Live CD and manually mount the hard drive to recover any data.
