My netbook boots only to the word window


Sounds like the HDD is corrupted what you need to do is goto the drives manufactures website and download their hard drives utilities software,

follow the instructions on how to make a bootable disk then shut down the computer reboot and run the utilities software, if you have nothing you need to save off the drive, Then do a low level format this can take upto an hour or more depending on how big the drive is

once you have done the low level format (this wipes everything off the drive) then reboot the system and format the drive in windows this will rewrite the master boot record in windows format

some manufactures don't have a format utility because there are so many differentsystem file formats.

What is the difference between high and low level formating of SD cards on my camera I can chose either but dont know what the difference is


Here's the wiki-pedia website explaining the difference:-

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disk_formatting

Basically low level formats, format everything on a drive/card right down to sectors while a high level format just re-instates the file system.

As with wiki-pedia, go for the High level format. Only use the Low level format when you're desparate and nothing else seems to work.

After iformat my compaq nx 7400 i can't install xp it showes my that my hard drive contian viurs


Try a Low level format. click the link below for a software to assist you:

http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/Hard-Disk-Utils/HDD-Low-Level-Format-Tool.shtml

You may also try formating the drive from a floppy disk, if needed. But that may require a little experience of DOS.

The formating done at the time of installation is a High level format, which may not be effective in all cases.

Replacing VISTA with XP Pro on Toshiba Qosmio F45-AV 413


Skokerdog51:
It came with the SATA drive, Go into BIOS settings, hard drive settings from whatever existing (I am slipping the exact name from my mind now). Make sure you save the settings, go into Bootable options and make sure your cd rom is the first to boot, put the cd in, restart your machine and thats it............make a clean install of xp. By the way I am also not a big fan of vista.
Enjoy!

You can perform a Low Level Format of a memory card with this camera. Select Low Level Format under the following circumstances: - The continuous shooting speed has dropped. - The read/write speed of a memory card has dropped. If you perform a Low Level Format, the read/write speed of the memory card may recover, or the continuous shooting speed may improve. A Low Level Format may require 2 to 3 minutes with some memory cards.
