Hi please i want to remove the existing windows7 (Formatting and deleting my old files) and install the windows again how can i do that


You can either use the recovery DVDs that came with the laptop to do a fresh install, or you can get a copy of Windows 7 and do an install using those discs. You may need to find some drivers if you use the Windows 7 disc.

Either way, you can do a fresh install (formatting and deleting) with both options.

Tip

To to reinstall a sound driver on your laptop


  1. Locate an installer for you original sound driver. This can be the biggest issue when one accidentally deletes a sound driver. Computers and sound cards come with driver CDs, but you may not be able to locate the original CD. If you can't find your driver CD, you will have to download the old driver from your computer manufacturer's website or from your sound card manufacturer's website. Use the device manager by right-clicking on My Computer, selecting Properties and then selecting the Hardware tab to look for sound, video and game controllers and to learn more about your sound device.
  2. Delete the currently installed sound driver before reinstalling the old one to avoid conflicts. To uninstall the driver, use the same device manager menu from Step One, select your sound device and click Properties. There should be an option under properties to uninstall the drivers.
  3. Run the auto installer on the original drivers. The installer will take you through several general steps, which will probably only require you to click Next a few times without changing any settings.
  4. Restart your computer when the driver installer is finished.

How can i reformat my packard bell laptop without the recovery cd?


The recovery cd is just a Pre-Built Windows version that includes the drivers you need for your computer.
If you want to format your pc and lack the original recovery cd, you just need to get a Windows (or other operating system you want) installation CD/DVD, put it on your optical drive and reboot your computer.
On installation, you will be asked what you want to do: Fix or Install. Choose install and check to format your disk.
After installation, if something doesn't work, its because you don't have the needed drivers, so go to Dell's Support Page find your computer, download and install the drivers you are lacking (video card graphics, sound, etc.)
Hope it was helpful ;)

How to reformat laptop

    If you have the recovery cd, you can just pop-in the CD, select the reformat option and the installation process will continue automatically. Some laptop might have a special partition in the drive contains the operating system, drivers, etc. in case you want to reformat your laptop without the CD.

    If you don't have the recovery CD, you usually can request one from the manufacturer. Otherwise, if you want to do a clean install, make sure you download all the drivers for your laptop, this may includes: motherboard, chipset, graphic card, sound card, modem, network card. Once you do that, put in the OS CD and start installing.

    If you decided to do a clean install without the recovery CD, it would be best to create partition on your harddrive first, so you can have dedicated partition for operating system and backup. The next time you want to reformat your harddrive, you can just reformat that particular partition ex. C:\

    I have compaq presario cq40144tu.my laptop doesnot support xp why. please me


    If you are going to use XP you will have to set the boot order to boot CD or DVD ROM as the first boot in the BIOS. Then you will have to go in and format the drive and erase all the other storage information on all partisans, you will have to choose a partisan with the most available delete the rest of the stuff. This is the factory junk and files for the restore disk that came with your computer.
    XP will be installed to a brand new partisan without any other partisans installed. Do not delete anything but partisans only and do not delete the largest one. Insert the XP disc it should boot first and select boot from disc it will do its thing and select the drive that should be the only one available which is the largest.
    Now you will have to possibly do the drivers as well. So be prepared to do some online searching for the drivers. Frankly it is a lot of work and if you are going to do an upgrade go for the Win7 I'm assuming you have Vista installed. XP is the best in my opinion is stable and works without all the flash and junk. I hope this gave you some kind of idea. Also if you have a driver disc you can use that once you get XP up and running. John

    How to reformat acer aspire one


    If you are replacing or reinstalling the operating system you will need your installation disk. The installation disk will ask you if you want to format the drive before reinstalling. If you otherwise want to wipe the hard drive you can usually download tools for your hard drive manufacturer. Basically you cant format the drive thats currently being used. You have to boot from a CD.
