    Pretty easy to do... Are you using the Recovery Disk the laptop came with, or are you using a seperate copy of Windows?

    When less than a quarter feel the need to vote for the effort some of us at FixYou offer, I think to myself, ”is it worth it”.

    They get help, and do not care to thank you; “thank you” do not cost a dime, so why????

How to wipe iPhone cleanly


"Erase all content" means all of YOUR content, including all applications you have downloaded and all the data for those applications and all the data for Apple applications (i.e. Mail, Photos, Calendar, Safari, etc.) will not be completely removed from the device, they still remain on your iPhone and can be easily recovered by some iPhone data recovery.

I highly recommend you to try Safewiper iPhone data eraser app to complete your iPhone data, it will be the best choice when you need to sell your old iPhone or iPad.

How do you delete all data off a a laptop hard drive


Just select all other partitions of the hard disc, and format it. Formatting will erase all the data. The second way is to do a partition to the hard disc. This will erase all data; including O/S. The O/S should have to be re-installed in this case.

Dell 1525 dont maneger is dosent see in the screen how i reformat


Reformatting the hard drive of a computer is sometimes an unavoidable task. Whether you're an IT professional or a private user, there are times when the hard drive has to be totally wiped. These reasons range from reallocating a computer to another user, selling it or donating it, installing a larger internal hard drive or even just to eradicate some flaky behavior. Unless the computer is ancient, reformatting a Dell laptop is a moderately easy process.


1. reformat-dell-laptop-1.1-800x800.jpg Damaged hard drive is a reason to reformat
Back up any data on the PC that you plan on saving. This can be accomplished by using burnable CDs or DVDs, attaching an external hard drive, using an online backup process or hooking up to the corporate backup server.

  • 2 reformat-dell-laptop-1.2-800x800.jpg Older flavors of Windows include a bootable floppy Set the boot order on the laptop. This tells the computer the order that it looks for a bootable disc. The default is the C: drive, but this can be changed by holding down the Delete key while booting the computer. If you're using a floppy, which is common with early versions of Windows, select the A: drive. If you're using the CD or DVD, then select that drive (usually the D: drive) by using the up and down arrow keys. Save your preference and exit.
  • 3 reformat-dell-laptop-1.3-800x800.jpg A software restore CD Insert the media (floppy or CD/DVD) into the computer, and then reboot. Select reformat and install, which will erase all the data on the drive and install a fresh copy of Windows.
  • 4 reformat-dell-laptop-1.4-800x800.jpg 2.5-inch internal hard drive Keep an eye on the process, as earlier versions of Windows often require manual intervention such as selecting options, or pressing the Enter key at certain times. More recent versions of Windows are typically autorun.
  • 5 reformat-dell-laptop-1.5-800x800.jpg Disk image utility Follow the prompts during the installation and after rebooting it. Use the restore CD to install any additional drivers and utilities. Run the Windows updates, and if you're planning on keeping the computer (or assigning it to another user), then install any necessary applications and data files, and configure the preferences, email and printers.

    How to reboot ur acer laptop likr the 1st time you had it :) because it keeps on freezing it wont let me on msn its mega slow .


    if you dont mind losing all the data, you can erase the HDD sectors by using killdisk(dos based)
    this will make the HD as good as new and you can re-install OS again and it will become as good as new.

    Factory settings?


    1. If you use the system recovery and go into advanced, it will erase all personal data and all programs installed, putting it back to the way it was when you first purchased the computer.
    2. To get to the system recovery on an hp, you press the key that is indicated during bootup, either F10 for older ones or F11 on the newer ones. It will boot into the recovery mode from where you select the advanced option. It will give you a warning that all your personal information will be gone.

    Thank you and please take a moment to rate as fixya. Thanks.
