How do i format it to how it was when i got it


If you still have the disk for your OS then the process is fairly simple. Insert the disc and reboot the computer. While the computer is booting hold down ESC or possibly F2, F8, or F12. A boot menu should open up before your operating system begins to load and you should pick to boot from CD Drive. When the setup loads, go through the menus until you get to the section of where to install the OS. Delete all the partitions on your computer and then reinstall the OS on the new one. This will delete everything on your laptop and just have a clean copy of your OS.

If you don't have the original CD you can download and burn this onto a CD and boot it from CD. This will securely wipe your hard drive.

Boots only to bios settings, then blank screen after save and exit. will not take a cd boot.


Hello, since it can boot to bios setting, then have you try configuring the boot order,the cd drive should come first,after that your hard disc, if the hard drive comes before the cd rom then it would not recognise it. Change the settings and Save this settings, then try to boot from the cd again, if this does not work then i am rest assured that your hard drive has a problem,and you need to find solution to it by getting a new one. cheers Regards

Had new hard drive put in at Best Buy and now the computer won't turn on. The start up light comes n and the fan starts but the hard drives never boot up. Can't get their store to look at problem so I'm...


they must have put it fully factory, you need to get your cd to start up before the hard drive does so you can use windows utility on to format and partition it , you may need to go into the setup (bios) and change the boot sequence to cd/dvd rom before the hard drive and run windows setup utility to install the OS on your new harddrive

Aspire 9500 doesn't start - cursor and drive indicator blinks


Generally the bios setting will be set to check the primary Hard disk for the Operating system and then move to the CD/DVD drive . It looks like your system is not finding the hard disk. Thats why its moving on the CD drive and trying to read it.

Possible issues :

1) Hard Drive crash
Solution : Nothing much. You need to replace the hard drive and reinstall the OS.
2) Hard Drive connection issue.
Solution : Open the chasi and try to figure out if the hard disc is properly connected.
3) Corrupted OS or boot file
Solution : Try to repair the OS use the OS cd and run the repair option.
4) Bios setting to treat CD drive as the primary media.
Solution : Use the F10 option in the Bios to change the primary Media.

Rate the Solution accordingly...

Hard Drive


Yes this hard drive should work with your system. all you should take into consideration is whether the inputs and such are the same and if all the other components in your system will support the newly added part.

Something isn't working right..


another way around this is to insert a boot-able floppy disc, then select "Boot with CDROM driver" and then find the new drive letter associated and then insert CDROM...and then run setup.exe
