Well M8:) you cand delete an OS just like that
Now you have to start over again, and format both c and e, then you install windows on C again.
When you done with the installation you still wont be able to see E
So you need to make E visable!
Rightclick on MY COMPUTER, in the end you will see HANDLE, select that one, now you will see a line called DISC HANDLE, select hat one, now you can see both of the partition. Click on your E partion, select to format it and when the format is doen geve it a name, like E again.
Now the disc is visable under MY COMPUTER

Good luck to you M8:)

Thanx for using FixYA!

Not recognising the disc drive


Hi...
Go into the System menu and find "Quick Format"...This reformats a portion of the hard drive and usually allows games and disks to be read

You will lose saved game data...Save it to an SD card if you can

On start, I get a "No bootable device--insert boot disk and press any key" message


This means that the Boot sequence part of Windows has becoming corrupted. If the FIXBOOT boot command does not work for you during the repair option, when inserting your system discs, then you have no alternative than to reinstall Windows.

If there is data on the drive that you need, then I would advise getting a USB to hard drive adapter and transfering the files to another PC before reformating.

This fault usually occurs during incorrect shutdowns,, hard resets, or power loss whilst the computer is switched on.

How to reformat back to windows vista ?


You need a windows Vista disc. Insert the disc and follow the prompts. I would format the hard drive instead of upgrading do a new install. The best way would be to go into your bios and make sure the boot device order has the cd-rom booting before the hard drive. Then put the disc in and start the computer, when it says press any key to boot from cd hit any key and let it load and then follow the prompts to install.

Can't defragment the C portion of the disc


On some systems it will allow you to defragment with lower than 15% of your hard drive, but sometimes some programs refuse to defragment if it is lower than that. I suggest trying to free up at least 900 MB in the drive and try defraging.

Reformating my gateway E 4100


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.

How do i reformate my laptop


Most laptops havew a 'hiddn' partitionon the hard disk where the 'raw' operating system lives .. this partition contains all the software needed to recover from a crash ..

So DO NOT format your disk UNLESS you have the Dell Windows CD and the Dell Drivers CD ..otherwise your laptop may never work again ..

To get into the hidden partition, you hold typically hold down the Ctrl and 'F11' key (or some other combo = check you manual for 'system restore') during power-up .. this will give you a choice of doing a 'clean' re-install .. (which will reformat the USER area of the disk).

The drive may be damaged physically and is setting the remaining portions of the disc as bad sectors. If this is the case you need to replace your hard drive immediately. If the space is unpartitioned you can do this through windows using a program called partition magic. You can also reformat the drive using a windows cd and it can reformat the drive to 80 gigs (assuming the disc does not have bad sectors).
