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.

Insert the disc into the CD/DVD drive and shutdown the computer. After powering back on the computer you should be prompted with the installation screen. Follow the directions to reformat your computer.
If you have multiple partitions and would like to format only one that is not the operating system drive go to the control panel > System and security > Administrative tools > Computer Management.
Once Computer Management is open select Storage > Disk Management. You can select a partition you would like to reformat from here.
Reformating any drive will erase all data on that drive. Only do this if you are sure you want to. I would stronly recommending backing up all files you might want later.
Hi Good Day,
First you have to choose the operating system you suitable for you and ask the your nearest computer technician if it is compatible to your system specification.
Second you have to boot it from CD... There are to options in going to boot setup:
1. go to CMOS setup by pressing the F2 key or delete key the select the tab key, look for the first boot, choose CD/DVD rom. After it save your settings the proceed booting from your CD. start reformat.
2. Press F12 or sometimes F9 it is depend in your system bios. choose boot from cd. start reformat.
Hi Good day!! Sir/Madam if you want to format your pc you will need and CD of a Operating system like WindowsXp/Vista/etc.(note you should have the product key after installing the OS) here are the steps on reformating: 1. Open your Bios setup by Pressing del or f2 it depends on your board. 2. insert your bootable CD on your CD/DVD rom. 3. go to boot setup, set your boot priority 1st boot must be your CD/DVD rom, 2nd boot your harddisk after you set your boot priority press f10 and then save changes. it will restart your pc. 4. your computer will boot in CD and a message will appear "Press any key to boot from CD...." you should follow it. press any key!! if you boot from cd successfully you should be on windows setup it is a blue screen!! congrats!! 5. windows setup will load it's driver, when finish loading there will be a option on the bottom. 6. press f8 for terms and agreement (read carefully) you can start formating just read the instruction.
This means that when you reformat your system, any documents, pictures, or favorite places will be wiped off the computer, and will not be on the computer after the reformat is completed. To save your personal info, you need to copy it before you reformat.
If you don't have anything on the computer that you want to save, it isn't a problem!
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.
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.
