No, after formatting there will not be any operating system, you require the Windows XP Home or Professional CD to install windows

Dear Sir I have a problem with ACER EXTENSA-5210 Laptop , I cant format my hard disk and windows instolation plz what can i format my laptop


of course you can format your laptop's hard disk. but you cannot do it while you are running windows. to format your hard disk and install a fresh copy of windows, you need to have 1) Windows XP CD Installer and 2) a valid cd key to complete your installation

How?

Load the CD Installer to your CD/dvd drive and restart your windows. When booting, your laptop recognize a bootable CD so it boots from there and not from your hard disk. Just follow the on-screen instructions to proceed.

Motherboard cd required for my laptop zenith z75110


All you need is the drivers and they will work. Most, but not all, computer makers put all there drivers on their website. So try there first, go to the Zenith website, click on Support. They will probably ask for your model, make and service tag. The service tag is normally on the bottonside of your laptop. You should be able to download directly to your laptop. The second place is the manufacturers website that make your sound card. To find your model for the sound card, click on Start>right-click on My Computer>Click on Properties>Hardware tab and Device driver. Find your sound card in the list of hardware. Click on the plus sign to open the folder and you will see the maker of your sound card. Go to the makers website and download the drivers from there. Hope this helps. Let me know how it goes.

Cant log in


i think you have corrupted system or maybe corrupted hard drive (most likely it would be corrupted system).

so all you need to do is just go with the recovery option when turning on the computer (most of the computer use F12 to go to the recovery council)

so try the recovery council if that doesn't fix it then you will need to reinstall windows (to prevent loosing data select the second repair option when prompted to reinstall windows).

if you need any further help please let me know

cheers
