Laptop came with windows 7 factory installed on it. A friend accidently formatted the hard drive.

Either download an installer disk on to a DVD or partition a harddrive with an installer disk on it. Boot from that disk and restart the computer, it should boot up and ask to install Windows 7.

My laptop is moving really slow

If this is something new...and it used to work well with the operation system you have in means that something affected your operation system and causing this..It may be a software or a program ..but more than sure it is a virus...The solution in the last case is to reinstall from scratch the OS using a recovery disk or partition (if you have one ) ..or using a boot-able disk ..with the OS on it ..
If you are forced to use the boot-able disk should store in advance the drivers for the devices on D partition or in another memory device to have them in handy after finishing the installation process.
If you do not have such a disk can download an image with the OS and burn it using Nero ..When you have the disk ..all you have to do is to insert it and restart the computer ...and use the function key written on the start to engage the boot menu ..and from there select to boot from disk (cd /dvd ) Confirm the boot by pressing any key when it asks..and fo0llow the instructions ..At finish ...use the saved drivers for to install them all ..and also download an antivirus and instal it soon after you connected the computer to the internet with success .
let me know if you do not manage and I will try to guide you trough the process step by step .

You seem to have an error in the boot sequence of the Operating system. If you are unable to access the safte mode of the OS, then you will have to do a hard boot (boot from disk). My suggestion is seeing that you have a Dell, many times they will give you a boot disk or charge you $10 for one to be sent to you. Boot disks are not expensive at all.

Once you recieve the boot disk, go into the BIOS and change the boot sequence that it boots from your CD/DVD drive first instead of your hard drive (C). Then restart the computer with the disk in the disk drive and it will load from the disk.

If that does not work, you will have to do a reimage. For that you will need a Windows OS CD (XP, Vista - whatever OS you use). From there you can either have your data slaved over to another drive prior to reimaging, or if you dont mind loosing the data, just push in the Windows OS CD and it will ask if you want to over write or reimage, answer yes, and it will begin to wipe your computer and place a brand new copy of the OS on there.

How do I change boot order on Dell Diminsion 2400 XP Home?

Have you tried using a boot disk that gives you cdrom support?

If not, download those files and make a floppy boot disk, then set bios to boot from floppy and toss that disk in.

I think this website should have the files you need

Hope that helps you

Toshiba laptop when turned on it freezes as windows is starting

Insert the disk in the cd rom and restart your computer......enter bios and change the boot boot from cd rom......boot of the cd and look for options such as check disk...disk a check disk ...or run a repair.....

Once you boot of the cd it will give you step by step details as how to repair the OS....

If you are unable to boot from a UBCD and created a boot cd this is much easier to use...

keep me posted

My pc is asking for an emergince boot disk i dont have that how do i get this disk....jim

Is it asking for a Compaq emergency boot disk? If it is then you would have to contact Compaq company for them to ship one to you.

If it's asking for a Windows emergency boot disk. You can download from here:

If it's asking for a emergency boot disk that is created by a program you installed into windows. Then you need to create the boot disk from that corresponding program.

Hope that helps... if it doesn't please comment back. And be more specific, as in what exactly is stated on the screen?
