    Hi June,
    Could you please be more specific to the error. Are you getting a Blue Screen of Death? How are you reformatting your laptop? CD or Floppy. Also need to know what are you formatting to NTFS or FAT32?

    Thanks,
    ArmyMason

Hello again,

Sounds to me that the software you are using is corrupt and if that is the case the only solution is to rebuild the OS by using a CD. This isn't uncommon, if their is a bad sector on the Hard Drive this can cause the software to error and become corrupt. A full reformat and installation is the only solution if the software is corrupt.

Hope that helps,
ArmyMason

    I would ask around to see if a friend has a disk or you could contact the manufacturer to purchase a disk.

    Hi,

    Can you give me an update as to what you have done or has my help explained enough to you as to what you should do? I hope you understand their is going to be no work around in getting the soft version of the restore disk to work. You need to either contact the manufacturer to order CD's or find a friend who has a disk that will work for you. If you are satisfied with my response could you please rate my help. Thank you, and sorry for your luck.

Did anyone come up with a solution? I'm getting the same error and I AM using the recovery disks from Sony.

It will reformat the hard drive, reinstall the software and get almost done... then error 320 or 330.

I thought I read somewhere that it was a optical drive issue so I used a USB optical drive with the same results.

Anyone?

Thanks.

How to reset settings


A persistent operating system error on your Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop requires more than just a system restore as there is a problem with a driver that a system restore cannot correct.


A full factory reset of the laptop wipes the hard drive clear of all data including existing driver settings and programs and installs the original operating system back to the hard drive.


Once cleared, previous computer files and programs are non-recoverable.


Press "Power" on the Inspiron 1525, and continuously press "F8" on the keyboard when the Dell logo appears on the laptop's screen.


Press the down arrow to highlight "Repair Your Computer," and press "Enter" to select the highlighted onscreen option.


Click your preferred keyboard layout, and click "Next" to continue with the laptop's restoration process.


Type "administrator" in the username field, click "OK" and click "Dell Factory Tools."


Click "Dell Factory Image Restore," and click "Next." Click the checkbox next to the hard drive reformat confirmation, and click "Next."


Click "Finish" to reboot the OS after the restore process finishes, which can take up to 10 minutes.


Hope this helps.

Everytime I open My G62 laptop after a few minutes \it will hang.I want to reformat it..How will I do the reformatting?


Hi and Welcome to Fixya!

I would not really recommend a format if the issue with your machine is hang. You can try though to just reset the machine to its original settings. Here's how it works:

1. Reboot, and repeatedly press F10 at the HP logo until the recovery screen appears.
2. When the recovery screen appears, press "Next" and then "Yes" to perform a non-destructive recovery (all data saved). After the recovery is finished, the laptop will reboot.

Or to perform a destructive recovery, (***This will erase all your unsaved data!***)
Click "Advanced" and then "Yes".
After the recovery is finished, the laptop will reboot.

Or
Reboot, and repeatedly press F11. Follow on screen prompts.

Hope this helps!

How to reformat my laptop


  1. 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.
  2. Step 2 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.
  3. Step 3 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:\
  4. Step 4 After the reformatting process finished and you have installed a new clean OS. Install drivers one by one and restart when it's required. Try to do it in order from basic function -> secondary ex. motherboard, chipset, graphic, sound, modem, networking, etc.
  5. Step 5 Install back all programs that you might need. If you already backup the installation programs or have the installation CDs handy, you can do this pretty fast.
  6. Step 6 Rearrange the look and customize your new operating system, refer to the screenshot you have taken earlier before the reformatting process begin if you want to get the same look and feel.
