You can run a new installation of windows on your pc, but before you do this I recommend that you take a note of your soundcard, graphics driver and network card name and number, in case you need to update the drivers. you can find these in control panel>system>device manager.

Simply load your os disk into your drive and when asked what you want to do click on Install windows. Formatting the harddrive is part of the installation in windows xp. Make sure that your bios settings is set to boot from cd. You can do this by restarting your pc, press F1 or delete which ever your computer asks to enter bios and change your boot options to cd. If you are using xp when the computer start press enter when asked if you want to boot using cd rom support. It will start loading all of the necessary files for the installation. Once it has loaded windows and restarts, it will will ask again if you want to boot from cd, do not press anything this time, it will boot itself from the harddrive. If you do press enter again it will start the whole process off again. Once it has started windows normally you may take out the disk. Make sure that your disk is not an upgrade disk though, it has to be the full version for a successful installation. If you have a vista disk simpy load it and select install and take it from there. Good luck I hope this helps.

Get a bootable CD, go to bios setup and change the first boot device to CD ROM. Then boot to the CD, re-install. Go to manufacturer's site for drivers that are installed.

Restore will not work comp goes thru the motions and comes back with unable to restore, it doesn't matter how far back you go


Hi, I believe you need to reinstall your operating system, follow these instruction:
Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} To install new version of XP. Insert XP CD into drive, reboot pc pressing F1 button.. This takes you into BIOS, change your primary boot device to CDrom, save changes and reboot. Select boot from CD once this appears and wait for files to be installed. Select the part of the hard drive you wish to use for your operating system (usually the largest) and select partition this drive. Delete any previous os, and reformat hard drive. (Be aware this removes everything saved on your hard drive, so always back up first) Re boot afterwards and reinstall operating system.
Hope this helps

Do I need windows xp disc to reinstall?


To format your hard-drive then re-install Windows? Yes, you would need one.

If you're attempting to rid yourself of a virus, you can definitely attempt a system restore. However, most modern viruses are smart, and the first thing they will do is integrate themselves into the system restore files. If however you have a system-restore disk (CD-ROM) which came with the computer, those will obviously not be infected (nor will they be infected) and can be used to restore the system to the state it was in when you first turned it on.

Let me know if I can help you further.

Need restoring my operating system. I have several viruses Can yo help


Hi jtspecprod,

You can restore your os, however, I have to ask, not to be rude mind you, what is your level of expertise in DOS. The reason I ask is that fdisk is a DOS operation and you kinda need to know a little about DOS, not a lot, just a little. If you really do have several viruses, reinstalling your os or rolling your computer back through system restore will not get rid of the viruses, they like to embed themselves in things like HIMEM or worse, your BIOS. Hit me back on how technical I need to be to get you through this problem. If your infected really bad you may have to consider professional help in the form of a repairman. We have those resources here at FixYa.com through our repairman registry, then again, I just may be cheaper to get another computer. I know this isn't the news you wanted to hear, but it is my honest opinion.

Thanks for using FixYa.com

Sincerely, cyyyd7

We bought Acer TravelMate 2420 almost 2 years ago without recovery CD and now we need this CD so bad and we don't know what to do. We have a virus and we need to restore the Laptop but we can't without...


Contact acer or check their website they should have a disk you can either download or order, they might charge to order it though to do a full wipe of the system and reinstall. otherwise you can di a full format and install from scratch with the OS of your choice. but that would leave you to search for the required drivers.

I have a bad virus and need to crash my hard driveand relaod


There is no virus in existence other then bios viruses that can survive a reformat restore.
find your restore disks or call the original manufacturer to obtain the original software. 
if you do not have a name brand machine. you will need to reformat yourself and re install the OS manually.
