Wipe my hard drive


if your intention is to make the data on your drive irrecoverable you can try to boot you computer off of a usb flash drive with DBAN (Darik's boot and nuke) and follow the on screen instructions

To boot from usb drive search the model of your system and see if your device can accept a boot to usb and it will require pressing a key usually F12, F10 or something

to make a usb for DBAN, download DBAN from a website and use a program called pendrive linux and install pendrive linux. then run pendrive linux and select (DBAN 2.2.x) under Select linux distribution. then select the flash drive you want to use and check the format to FAT32 (WARNING: THIS WILL ERASE YOUR FLASH DRIVES FILES)

Then under select iso click browse for iso and find the DBAN file you downloaded and then click create after this is donw you can then boot to the usb drive and follow the on screen instructions and under methods you can choose a long format or a quick one its up to you

If you are unsure if you can do this just take it slow and understand the risks of losing your data.
,GOOD LUCK

Hi there ..my dell inspiron laptop making horrible siren frequently during startup or when i attached the pendrive..what is the problem??


It could be the CPU fan with worn bearings.
It could be the CD/DVD drive but only when the laptop boots up.
Connecting a USB pendrive should not start this noise as there are no moving parts in the pendrive.

Unable to write bootable iso image on pendrive, Write method changed after selection of iso


bootable USB guide, here we assume that you are using either Vista or Windows 7 to create a bootable USB.
1. Insert your USB (4GB+ preferable) stick to the system and backup all the data from the USB as we are going to format the USB to make it as bootable.


2. Open elevated Command Prompt. To do this, type in CMD in Start menu search field and hit Ctrl + Shift + Enter. Alternatively, navigate to Start > All programs >Accessories > right click on Command Prompt and select run as administrator.


3. When the Command Prompt opens, enter the following command:
DISKPART and hit enter.
LIST DISK and hit enter.
Once you enter the LIST DISK command, it will show the disk number of your USB drive. In the below image my USB drive disk no is Disk 1.


4. In this step you need to enter all the below commands one by one and hit enter. As these commands are self explanatory, you can easily guess what these commands do.
SELECT DISK 1 (Replace DISK 1 with your disk number)
CLEAN
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
SELECT PARTITION 1
ACTIVE
FORMAT FS=NTFS
(Format process may take few seconds)
ASSIGN
EXIT
Don't close the command prompt as we need to execute one more command at the next step. Just minimize it.


5. Insert your Windows DVD in the optical drive and note down the drive letter of the optical drive and USB media. Here I use "D" as my optical (DVD) drive letter and "H" as my USB drive letter.


6. Go back to command prompt and execute the following commands:
D:CD BOOT and hit enter. Where "D" is your DVD drive letter.
CD BOOT and hit enter to see the below message.
BOOTSECT.EXE/NT60 H:
(Where "H" is your USB drive letter)


7. Copy Windows DVD contents to USB.
You are done with your bootable USB. You can now use this bootable USB as bootable DVD on any computer that comes with USB boot feature (most of the current motherboards support this feature).
Note that this bootable USB guide will not work if you are trying to make a bootable USB on XP computer.

My Sony Vaio VGC will not read CD/DVD's


If you have a USB pen drive which is not less than 4GB, then you can easily installed windows 7 with that pendrive.

Download "WinFlash", here is the link
http://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/1364h/winflash2017.zip

this software will copy all the windows 7 files and make a bootable usb pendrive with windows 7 in it.

You will install windows 7 from pendrive as you do it with CD-DVD Rom drive.

Just set your Bios to boot from USB Storage Media.

On how to use "WinFlash",you can refer to the link below

USB flash drivers for win98 SE


Not sure what model drive you purchased. If you go to:

http://www.kingston.com/support/USBFLASHDRIVES/default.asp

you can choose which drive you have and it will tell you in the "Support Options" box if a WIN98 driver is available. Unfortunately they only support a few models these days. Hope yours is one of them.

Pendrive


Try another pendrive and see if the same is working.
PLease make sure if your pendrive is USB 2.0 compliant.
If it came with an installation CD/CVD, install the same and try.
