Remember format results the lose of data permanently. put the windows xp disk and boot system from it, it lead to format drives. choose your drive to format and install windows.

How to format compaq laptop nx6110


Hi

you could try to do this

Please try to save any files or pictures that you need before you do this either to a usb spare hard drive or a usb pen drive because you will loose it all if you format or reinstall windows

press the power on key as well as the F11 key
hopefully this will take you into the factory restore
which will format the hard drive while it restores

if you just want to format the hard drive itself then you could remove the hard drive
connect it to another computer via a usb cable and use the other computer to format the hard drive that you removed

or there are some good software out there that you can bootup with and format your drive without removing it from your laptop

a bootable spotmau would do the trick but its not cheap to buy
norton system works is another good software

pleasse let us know if this has helped you
many thanks

Hi I want to format my laptop pavilion dv6 just C drive without losing my data in other drives using backup drive? thank's


You cannot format c drive while windows is running. If your operating system is in c drive then you need an operating system disk to reinstall and while doing this you will be asked to format your c drive If you want to format c drive without loosing data then simply transfer your data to another drive on your computer and use operating system disk to bot your computer Wait for the setup files to load and choose fresh installation option You will be asked to choose the drive to install OS and you can select c drive Then you will be available with an option to format c drive and install OS It will not effect other drives on e computer and your data is safe After installation of OS you can browse through other drives to retrieve your data. Hope this helps or you can ask for clarification if you need Thanks

Micro sd 2gb card, not read.


Sometimes when a flash memory stick fails because it was not removed from the USB port properly. If the device is removed by just pulling it out of the USB port, it can cause the flash device to fail, you must click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon on the Task Bar and select the device you wish to remove and only do so when instructed to do so.

When the flash memory device appears to malfunction it maybe possible to restore it by reformatting it. Insert the flash drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management.
Then right click on Disk 1 removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted it will indicate that it is Healthy.

You need to format the external drive. Format the drive as primary drive and in FAT32. (FAT32 will allow data to be exchanged between MACs and PCs).
Insert the external hard drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management.
Then right click on Disk 1 removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted it will indicate that it is Health.

Formatting a Compaq nc8430 laptop


you need a compaq boot disk
ferkin compaqs are a pain in the O
try pulling the drive and inserting it into a portable enclosure than format it you will probably find there is 2 partions on the drive
usualy the first is the small 1 and it has only enough space the boot then it kicks to the second 1

if you use a portable enclosure and use the manage command you can see the partitions and you can format it as 1 huge drive rather than 2 smaller ones

Your computer may simply be unable to run 2 operating systems. On the odd occasion the main OS usually the newest one in this case vista is running in the background and interfering with kernel operations even if you have selected "Previous version of windows" the 1 and only solution i know of is to not only re-format XP but Vista also.

the website above MIGHT be able to find driver needed but i dont think it is a driver problem.
This may be the only way- do this first

Booting repeatedly at compaq window itself,it is not takes up WINDOWS OS.


It could have damaged the bios which is on the motherboard but sounds like the mbr or ntldr records got scrambled (love nortons)!

1.unless there is data that you just cannot live without restart the windows witha fresh install, format and reload

2.if there is data that you may not want to lose you can do an overrun if you have an original os disk by putting it in booting to it let it run hit f8 skip recovery console let it find the old windows if it is not too damaged it will replace the mbr or ntldr recored that are damaged only and get you back up & running (there is a chance if nortons damaged a lot or too much it will not be able to repair the files and will have to format the drive any way.

3. or take to a REPUTABLE repair center let them save your data for a resonable fee usually $50.00 to $100.00 (usually i can get pics docs etc emails are harder) then do item # 1
