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.

I need to reformat my pc please help it is compaq presario 6330ca


You will need a windows installation disk.

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.

Reformating system u`ll loose infos.why?


Hi:
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!

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.

A SIMPLE AND EASY GUIDE ON HOW TO SETUP BIOS BEFORE YOU START REFORMATING YOUR PC


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.

I cannot reformat my pc windows xp,there's an error


If you are getting an error during installation its not good :(

Its prob either yor ram or hard drive faulty. Download memtest and test ram 1st as thats the most likely cause. Check that optimised defaults are loaded in bios also.
