If you wipe your drive you will need to load another operating system on it unless you want to sell it ?

You have to format a hard drive with a third party disk unless its a usb data drive Restart your computer During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key this will vary depending on your operating system Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS then using the arrow keys navigate to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd press escape then press f10 to save to cmos restart or if you are using a USB insert your usb drive click start right click on my computer select open you should see your USB drive right click then select format another way is to control panel administrive tools,computer management disk management right click on your drive select format hope this helps www.WipeDrive.com

You have to install another operating system
Restart your computer during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS then using the arrow keys scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

Note this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system

Note after you have loaded the operating system you should go back and change the first boot device to failsafe or optimised defaults after windows has loaded

your computer will automatically restart it might restart 2 times one to finish the installation
the next will be because the operating system is loaded and will boot from your cd

or
Formatting a hard drive to erase its contents does not mean the files are necessarily gone forever. Using data-recovery software, someone still could retrieve sensitive data and files from your hard drive even after you've formatted it. Instead of simply formatting your hard drive, use disc-cleaning software to permanently erase its contents. Disc-cleaning programs work by repeatedly overwriting the contents of a hard drive with random data patterns, making it virtually impossible to recover the original files. Download and install the freeware program Active@ KillDisk (see Below). http://www.killdisk.com/downloadfree.htm Click the Windows "Start" button and select KillDisk from the "All Programs" list. Click the check box next to the hard drive you want to erase in the "System Local Disks" menu. Press the "Kill" button. Select the erasing method you want to use from the "Erase Method" drop-down menu. Active@ recommends using the "US DoD 5220.22-M" method. Click "Start" to begin erasing the hard drive. Download and install the freeware program Hard Drive Eraser (see Below). http://www.harddriveeraser.org/ Click the Windows "Start" button and select Hard Drive Eraser from the "All Programs" list. Check the radio button next to the hard drive you want to erase under "Select Drive to Erase." Select the erasing method you want to use from the "Shredding Scheme" drop-down menu. The developers of Hard Drive Eraser recommend "DoD 5220-22 M" Press the "Start" button to begin erasing the hard drive. Download and install Iolo DriverScrubber (see Below). Click the "Windows" Start button, "All http://www.iolo.com/ds/3/ Programs" and then the DriverScrubber program icon. Click "Wipe all contents of a drive," and then click "3.5-Inch Floppy Disk." Insert a blank floppy disk and click "Next." Restart your computer with the floppy disk still inserted. Your computer will boot directly to DriveScrubber. Press the down arrow on your keyboard to highlight the hard drive you want to format in the "Available Physical Drives" menu. Press the space bar to select the hard drive. Press "Enter" to continue. Press the down arrow to highlight "Seven Overwrites" in the "Available Data Wiping Methods" menu, and then press the space bar to select it. Press "Enter" to continue. Press "CTRL," "ALT," "Shift" and "W" at the same time to wipe the hard drive. Hope this helps.

My computer i completely wiped off i need to put window xp back on it. how can i do that ?


Before you start, you must have your Windows XP installation CD and the product key available.

  1. Start your computer from the Windows XP CD (or boot disks). To do this, insert the Windows XP CD into your CD or DVD drive, and then restart your computer.
  2. When the "Press any key to boot from CD" message appears on the screen, press any key to start the computer from the Windows XP CD.
  3. At the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER to begin Windows XP Setup

How do i accesses my router's configuration page, and how do i find out it's username and password? I have a Lxair b-3000.


If you forgot your username and password to any wireless router, the normal procedure is to do a factory reset. This means it will set the router back to the way it was the day you bought it. Warning: this will forget all the configuration you have done and you will need to reconfigure. If you don't know how to reconfigure then I don't recommend this.

To do this there is a RESET button on the side of the router. Hold it for 10 seconds or until one of the LED lights turns red. Release the reset button and if the SYS LED light begins to blink the defaults have been restored and ZyAir will restart.

If this doesn't work you have a second option

Turn off the ZyXel ZyAir B-3000, then while holding the RESET button turn the ZyAir back on. Continue holding the RESET button. The SYS Led light will begin to flicker and blink rapidly for 20 seconds. Release the RESET button and the ZyAir will restart. Wait for it to restart.

The factory password for the ZyAir B-3000 is 1234

Click here http://192.168.1.2 and type in the 1234 password and click LOGIN. You will probably see a screen to change your password. I recommend you do this.

You will need to reconfigure the router

As I said before change the password from 1234 to something else, plus If there is no security after the factory reset I would read the manual (see below) and setup at WPA or WPA-PSK security on the wireless router (I do not recommend WEP security it is too easy to crack).

You can find the ZyXel ZyAir B-3000 manual here: ftp://ftp.zyxel.com/B-3000/user_guide/B-3000_3.50.pdf

How can I restart my Compaq laptop back to factory settings? I just bought it off a friend and it's full of her stuff, and I'd like to switch it to back to the factory state.


There are a few ways to set your computer back to default. You can do a system restore which will take you back to most likely one of the first days she bought it.
>start
>all programs
>accessories
>system tools
>system restore
If that did not work, then restart the computer and push F10 when starting up. This will take you into the system restore menu.
Also, a more efficient wipe of the computer would be to use the start up disks that were issued with the computer when she bought. Place the disk into the CD drive and restart the computer. Follow the instructions that come on when prompted.

Hope this helps.

I've backed up all of my data and just want to reconfigure the laptop, but can't figure out how


You need an operating system to be able to carry out the configuration.

Now, it is either you laptop has an in-built operating system known as Recovery Disk or you have it on a DVD CD.

To know if your system has a recovery disk, go to my computer, you will see a D: Drive name Recovery... .

To run the recovery disk, got to start menu, click all programs, look out for Backup and Recovery Manager, click it and follow instructions.

Or if you have your operating system on a DVD, insert it into your drive and restart your system. Once the system is restarted, your laptop would vibrate and you would see press any key to run from cd drive, press enter or space bar and setup will begin.

The above are the options you have to be able reconfigure your laptop.

Best wishes.

Try rebooting it with the cd you ejected back in, to see if the installation finishes. If this does not work, take the disk back out and try booting with the option Last Good Configuration.

Acer Extensa 4220 laptop configuration interrupted


You may need to boot from a system disk and follow prompts to reconfigure from there. There is no way to tell which drivers or devices it was configuring when interrupted, so booting from the disk and starting with reconfigure from there should help.
Good luck, I am sure you will be able to resolve this.
