U have got a person with no hands, mouth or anything to take. First of all, u have to have a CDROM or DVDROM. Now coming to the point, first format the USB Drive (pendrive) and copy the system start up files in it. U can do it on other computer by the following steps: 1) FORMAT the drive. 2) go to DOS mode, then type COPY COMMAND.COM D:  (D: means the drive letter of the Drive)
COPY FORMAT.COM D:
3) for the bios setup... Press the F2 Key or DEL Whatever is ur bios activation key. (ESC/F1/F10/F12) 4) in the bios, go to the boot priority section. 5) in the first boot device, put the USB drive. Press F10 to save and exit. also u may just plug the USB drive in the port and the system will automatically boot from there.
6) when the system starts, it will enter the command mode. enter the following Command, FORMAT C: and press ENTER and ur job should be done. Also next time u install antivirus right after the installation of OS, before any program else there is always chance of virus infection. There are many free antiviruses such as Avira, AVG, McAfee etc...

Usually, the only setting in BIOS you have to change is the boot order, so you can start from cd.
As for hanging, it might be dust. Yes, it does tend to overheat due to acumulating dust in the cpu fan.
Also, before you format, make sure you have all the drivers for you hardware and get the latest updates for your operating system, because you SHOULD NOT go online BEFORE installing the drivers, updates and the antivirus, in that order. I know it is a bugger, but reboot everytime the computer asks you to.
If you need more detailed explaining, post a comment. Meanwhile, I´ll research about the board.

How do you get into the bios


When you first start your computer, it will go to the computer manufacturer 'splash screen'. (Manufacturer logo)

At the bottom of this screen tells you the key, or keys to press, to enter BIOS Setup.

This window of opportunity goes by real f-a-s-t.
The best method is to find what key, or keys need to be pressed, to enter BIOS Setup.

Then as SOON AS YOU PRESS THE POWER ON BUTTON, start tapping in 2 second intervals, on that key, or keys.
This way you won't go past the window of opportunity.

{ You may hear a beep, or beeps, as you tap on the key/s. This is a Stuck key Error Code, and is nothing to worry about }

There are many different keys used to enter BIOS Setup, for a computer. (Desktop or laptop)

This may help,

http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/bios_manufacturer.htm

Remember;
1) When in BIOS Setup you can no longer use the mouse. You have to use the Keyboard.

2) At the bottom of every screen in BIOS Setup, is listed a navigation guide. It is Not labeled Navigation Guide.
This tells you how to get around. (Navigate around)

3) Use the appropriate key on the Keyboard, to highlight the area you wish to go into, and then the specific parameter you wish to change.
Then press the Enter key.

4) Unless you Save Changes, it will be like you have just looked around, and done nothing.

5) Look at the parameters already set. You may wish to write them down. IF, you make a mistake in the BIOS Setup utility, you can go back, and set the parameters back to the way they were.

Also in the navigation guide to the right, it usually tells you what key to press to go back to the factory default settings.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

{ If you want more than generic information, you have to at least post the computer manufacturer name, and Model Number, in a Comment }

Dell Dimension E521 ''Diskette Drive 0 seek failure''


Is there a diskette drive installed?The bios is looking for a device that was enable but not there.If you prefer to ignore this problem you may do so,however the fix is very simple,unplug the computer remove the cover,there is a coin battery which stores the configuration of the computer you may need to remove it.This will erase the configuration stored in the bios,or you can install a jumper on the motherboard which will clear the bios setting .Remember to return the jumper on the pins it was on.
good luck

Dear Silver heart, First thing is that you have backup your all personal datas,including any emails configured in outlook express.Dont forget to take mydocuments ,desktop and files in the C drive becoz we r going to reformat the C drive.After taking backup ,reboot ur pc and put the Xp bootable cdrom in the drive.You have enter bios only if you are not get booting from the cdrom.First step will be "press any key to continue" after that it will load all the necessary files from the cdrom.Second step onwards you can follow the screen steps.Further moving you will get the step where it will find the installed operating system.Skip that step and continue.remember that you have to select C drive for formatting.
