Try using a different USB port to connect the external drive you're trying to format. If you're formatting the internal drive of the laptop, try doing it using a Windows installation disc. If that fails as well, you'll need a new drive.
Your post is in PC Desktops, it's a Laptop? It's a Dell Vostro 3400? Is the old HDD working? If you install a new primary HDD you will need a Factory System disk to re-install to factory specs OR a Windows Installation Disk. Contact Dell Support with your Make, Model, Serial Number of Computer, if the Factory Recovery Disk is available. Dell Support: http://www.dell.com/us/business/p/vostro-3400/pd You may can use a online service? If your old drive works you can "clone" it to the new HDD, using a software program.
I'm going to assume that you are using Windows XP. Since you have saved all of your work and need nothing from the hard drive, my best advice to you is to put in your XP disk and allow the system to boot from the disk. Click on "Install Windows XP" It will look for other Windows installations. Once it has found the old installation, follow the directions to delete your partition. Usually, once on the screen where it askes you what you want to do, is press "D" then "ENTER" then "L". Then, it will ask you to partition this drive. It will give you a series of numbers in megabytes.....just click the "OK" button. Once this is done, you can format the drive and make sure that it is in the NTFS format, and install Windows. This will clear any errors on the drive that is preventing Windows from running correctly.
download driver for your dvd... i hade simmiler problems with tsstcorp ..in my case i updated the firmware of device and it worked like charm... for audio try to install it from device manager.... with have disk...
You cannot fully recover the data on your hard drive anymore, you can create a recovery disk again after your manual installation of your copy of windows, want help about your drivers? pm me i will assist you email@example.com
you should first check your drive capacity, your RAM and the game minimum memory requirement. reformatting your computer should always be your last option. you need to have the installation disk for your fresh start.
Im affraid to answer this question because im sure that you rate me 'thanks for trying" but its ok as long as i can help.
well, In most cases, that problem will be resolve by directly going to the insternet and activate.
this statement is also correct" boot from the CD/DVD." Are you sure that the cd/DVD is ok. ? If the original CD is a bootable disc then you have no problems . You should reinstall using the original CD.
1. at frist boot, press'F2" of "Delete" to enter the bios setup.
2. find the first boot setting and change it with CD rom and then pres "F10" to save and exit the setting.
the sytem will restart automatically. then press any key to boot from cd rom.
You are done.
please tell me the problems if this solution won't apply i will give you further solution.
best regards, melnavz
