How to wipe a hard drive


Easiest was is to reformat the drive or reinstall your windows OS as a new install. Either way, will reformat the C: drive and wipe all data from the drive. You may have a security program that allows you to shred data. That, too, will work as it actually removes data rather than just removing the indexing files pointing to the date, such as emptying your waste basket does.

I wont to reset my campaq lap top


Do you have the original disks that it came with? If so, follow the restore procedure that came with them, but be sure to back up any important files on to a flash drive or something. If you don't have them, you can use a new copy of windows and reformat / reinstall everything. Just be sure to backup your files as you will be deleting everything off of the hard drive.

Can't get my lap top to open the bl--dy thing Lap top see's it but won't open it up can any one help before i put a hammer to it i've had it for about 2yrs now but haven't been able to access it now for at...


Try to connect the external disk-drive to a different computer.
If you still cannot access any files, then either:
* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the case is malfunctioning,
* the disk-drive inside the case is malfunctioning.

Read the serial-number of the external disk-drive from the case, and access the manufacturer's web-site, and check to see if the "warranty" for the device is still available. If so, the manufacturer will replace the device -- you might have to pay "shipping" to send your device to them.

If the warranty has expired, open the case, remove the disk-drive, and connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in some desktop computer, to see if the USB-to-disk-drive device was the problem.

While the case is open, you could purchase a new disk-drive to fit into the case, and then close the case, and once again have a working "external" disk-drive.

How to reformat lap top?


You need the disks that came with your laptop. There should be a Windows disk. Insert it and follow the prompts. Make sure you back-up everything like pictures, documents, and files created. Make sure you also have all the original software disks as you need to re-install them (drivers and software).

If you have a windows installation disc, you can boot with it and choose repair. Let windows repair the startup files. In Vista, just boot with the disc, choose repair, vista will search the windows installations and give you the result, you highlight the installation and hit repair.

If you have XP, choose repair and when is says to exit to go to recovery console ot install, click install > click F8 to agree > windows will search for windows installations, again highlight the windows installation and choose to repair at that point, windows will attempt to fix the startup files.
