How to reformat a laptop


This may vary depending on your laptop make and model. The standard method for reformatting any PC (Desktop or laptop) is to insert your manufacturer provided Operating System disc into the CD/DVD ROM.
Your submission says this is a Dell laptop so the moment you turn on the computer begin pressing F12 to trigger the one time boot menu. Insert the Operating System disc into the computer while you are at the menu then select boot to CD/DVD ROM (the actual choice will vary depending on your hardware).
Since you presumably have an Operating System installed you may need to interact with the boot to cd/dvd to make sure that you do indeed boot to the disc. Once you have booted to the disc follow the on screen instructions to format the system and re-install your Operating System

CD/DVD Drive was not registering;Tried to reformat;Think I erased


If it said you needed a cd/dvd drive to continue installing windows 7 it's most likely a bad dvd. If you burned the iso to a dvd yourself try to download another iso cause this one won't work.

Sir, Good day! How to reformat my hardrive toshiba dynabook without dvd drive


You'll need to remove your hard drive, hook it up to another computer via a USB to Hard Drive adapter and use the operating system of the other computer to reformat the hard drive. This will only reformat the hard drive, not install a new OS. To install a new OS you'll need a DVD-ROM and OS installation disc, or a flash drive with an OS installer on it to install from the flash drive.

How to reformat back to windows vista ?


You need a windows Vista disc. Insert the disc and follow the prompts. I would format the hard drive instead of upgrading do a new install. The best way would be to go into your bios and make sure the boot device order has the cd-rom booting before the hard drive. Then put the disc in and start the computer, when it says press any key to boot from cd hit any key and let it load and then follow the prompts to install.

It will not go past the windows loading logo


There is nothing left to do for this one here. The best thing to do is to take your computer to the manufacturer for repairs. Other than that the best thing to do is to purchase an external optical drive / cdrom or dvd drive and purchase another windows xp disc and reinstall it. or if you have the windows cd for this computer that you could use that as well. Those are your best options.
