I believe you should select the top MICROSOFT XP HOME EDITION line as the newer versions of Windows "instances" are placed on top.

Reformat my computer to windows 7


ATTENTION!
Reformatting a computer will reset it to the factor image, all data must be backed up or it WILL be lost. There are several reasons to reformat a hard drive. A few reasons include but are not limited to: driver issues, virus, cleaning up, getting rid of the computer, etc.

RECOVERY DISKS!
Every new windows 7 owner should know that the new computers are not supplied with recovery disks anymore. The manufacturer allows the user to create one set of disks upon the purchase of a new machine. It is important to create the disks early as driver issues and viruses may arise. In order to create recovery disks on windows 7 you want to click on the start menu. Next, type in recovery in the Start Search option area. Next, click on recovery disk creation and follow the process. It will require that you have about 3 dvds or about 7 cds to create the recovery disk.

REFORMATING HARD DRIVE!
Once the recovery disks have been made reformatting windows 7 is quite simple. Insert the recovery disks into the cd/dvd tray on the machine. You are now going to want to turn the computer off. When the computer has turned off, go ahead and turn it back on. A screen should pop up asking you whether you want to boot from Hard Drive or Disk. Choose the disk option. After you make it this far it is a downhill process. Next you follow the on-screen instruction make sure you reformat the machine, not recover it.

What button do i hit at start up to reformat the hard drive on a compaq presario 700


Hi purple7558

did you mean format the hard disk and then install the operating system.?
press F10 to enter the bios setup, then set the boot sequence to cd rom first.
insert your windows cd into the cd rom.
save settings and restart. after the computer restarts it will detect that you enter cd then press enter.
the next process is the usual kind of format and install your operating system.

thanks&regards

Hi my everex computer is getting a screen saying windows could not start following file js missing or corrupt:..windiwssystem32configsystem............How do i repair without loosing my downloaded pictures...


Hi, Assuming the OS as XP. Plz follow the below steps.

Yes, you can repair your system,

1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the boot order in the system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive. Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.
2. When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the options below
This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft
Windows XP to run on your computer:

To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.

3. Press Enter to start the Windows Setup.

do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R", (you Do Not want to load Recovery Console). I repeat, do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R".
4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
5. Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options, END setup. After the reboot read Warning#2!
6. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot. Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact.

Hi My son decided to completely clear his Packard bell M1610 and i don't hav the recovery discs.Is ther anything i can do?(Apart from throttle my son)


When you mean he decided to clear his computer out. You probably mean he either deleted files,folders and programmes off his computer.

You have 2 options

1. Contact the computer shop you bought the PC from or the manufacturer Pacard Bell giving them the machine number in both cases and explain to them that you do not have the Recovery CD and can they post one out to me

or

2. Purchase a copy of an Operating System (either Windows Vista or Windows XP) and a copy of Office 2003 (XP) 2007 (Vista) and install a fresh copy on your machine.

PC xp pro is restarting over and over. now the keyboard is dead.


Hi, my guess would be a corrupt windows file. Usually running a check disk can take care of this problem, otherwise it may be that you'll need to reinstall windows (hopefully not).

If you have the Windows XP cd that came with the computer then you should be able to boot to it while turning on the computer (either by changing the boot order in the BIOS or by doing a one time boot selection).

Once you have loaded up the CD it should give you the option to install windows or launch recovery console. You will want to launch the recovery console and when it gives you a DOS prompt (Looking similar to "C:/") you want to type "chkdsk /r". That will run check disk and test your core windows files for any corruption.

If you don't have the CD an option would be to use a different computer with working internet access and CD burner to download the Windows Recovery Console CD for your version of windows and make a copy of it to use in the computer.

Hopefully that works for you :)

Windows failed to start !...


Hi,
Boot your computer with the recovery CD In the Drive.
You should get the option ** Boot From CD**
highlight click Yes, and overwrite the O/S.
This will re-install windows over your existing version, replacing any corrupt-deleted-missing Files.
