Question about Gateway E-4100 PC Desktop
Hi, I have trouble in reformating my gateway E 4100 desktop.
Unfortunately I had a virus in my desktop, since then I reinstalled the windows XP.
I decided to reformat the desktop, but I don't know how t do it.
By doing reformating, I think I will have all the good programs.
Reformatting a drive is a big undertaking, formating the drive will erase everything, including viruses, before you format you need to make sure you have all the discs including the windows disc, driver discs, and a factory restore disc, also you make check the documentation on your system because alot of the gaetway, dell, emachines systems have restore partitions installed on the drive. Also youll need alot of coffee and alot of time, most importantly aside from the windows disc youll need a driver disc for any ethernet or wireless card you have installed. without this you will not have access to the internet most likely and donloading updated drivers is very helpful. This is a time consuming proccess unless there is a restore partition on the harddrive, the documentation will tell you how toaccess it if it exists, if not a restore disc will be nice.
