In order for the computer to work, and for you to reformat the harddrive, you will need a bootable disk, either one which has a drive utility on it in order to reformat and partition the harddrive or an operating installation disk which includes a drive utility (any windows installation disk has it) - without one you will neither be able to properly reformat the harddrive nor install an operating system on it in order to use the computer.

As you have stated, this is obvious, and your problem is that you do not have an installation disk. A restore disk would not help if you reformatted the harddrive.

You can either purchase a Windows operating system disk, find one (no, not anything illegal - I have spare copies of windows and all of my geek friends have spare copies, because frankly of issues like this),

or download a copy of Linux and burn it to a cd - Ubuntu is a decent choice for a starting Linux user, and is very easy to use (works alot like windows, has tutorials, etc) and is completely free - you can do a search for Ubuntu Linux on google and you will be able to download a copy which can be burnt to disk or request a disk be sent to you, though I cannot remember if they still send free Ubuntu disks out.

Linux typically runs very well on limited resource computers such as the one you are in possession of. Did I mention it was free? If nothing else, you can use it to reformat the harddrive using their Live Boot disk - it allows you to use the Ubuntu operating system without installing it. You boot from the cd and can use their harddrive utility, or install Linux to the harddrive, or just check it out to see how it works.

Hi, I need standard spec info of VGA built on Asus P5GC-MX 1333 whether 64 Mb or 128 Mb. Many thanks & regards, Richard


you can use up to a maximum of 224 mb of your computer's RAM for the onboard video chip to use. You can install a video card with any amount of memory (which would give you a lot better video performance).

I have a mainboard of model D845GVAD2------------------------AAC18931-104. It has already intall the Intel celeron processor of 1.8GHz. Now I want to upgrade my processor. So what high frequency processor...


Hello,
The Intel® Desktop Board D845GVAD2 supports a single Pentium® 4 processor with a system bus frequency of 400 MHz or 533 MHz, or a single Celeron® processor with a system bus frequency of 400 MHz.

So you can install upto 3.06 GHz 533 MHz(cache memory) processor and also update the ram 2 GB 400 mhz.
Dont install Prescott processor.
Hope it will help you.

Old computer ram upgrade without manual


564 mhz means it is a Pentium 3 or equivalent. This also means that the motherboard does not support DDR2 RAM which is exclusively for Socket 775 and Pentium 4 chipsets. Pentium 3 usually support SD-RAM, also but very rarely DDR1 RAM. Sorry but DDR2 will not work in your PC.
