How to format drive c in dos? i am using xp pro...can you give me the steps? PLS HELP I AM NOT FAMILIAR IN COMPUTER BUT I WANT TO DO IT IN MYSELF


Just boot from a Windows install disk (put the cd in, press the boot selection key and select the cd unit) and allow it to run: the first step in the process is selecting the drive (select C), the second one is formatting of the drive - select the regular one, not the quick. After that just pull out the Windows disk or let it continue.

Plz tell me how format my compaq 5441 pc?


Hi,

In order to format your laptop, you need to secure first your Operating System CD and the drivers for your laptop. Next, you have to back-up your files. Put them somewhere like an external drive for easy retrieval later.

After you've done this, you are now ready to go.

Here are the steps:
1) Insert the OS cd in your cd/dvd rom.
2) Restart your laptop.
3) While your laptop is still booting, press the key that will enable the bott sequence set-up.
4) Once the boot sequence shows up, choose CD/DVD Drive and press enter.
5) The next screen that will appear will be a blue screen with white text below. This means you have entered your OS CD already.
6) From there, you'll be guided with step by step instructions so you won't be lost. Just read it carefully.

Note: After successfully formatting your laptop, you need to install all your drivers.

Hope this helps.

Just get back here if you have follow-up questions.

Thanks!

How to format pc please show me how


Before you do format your harddrive back up your drivers onto a flash pen or cd first there are free programs on the net to do this. For some reason installing xp to a system you can put money on it you wont have the network driver.

Your going to need an external cdrom as i dont think the ASUS 900 has one? What you need to do is boot from an operating system cd (eg. XP or Win7 or what ever your using) then follow the instructions on screen to guide you through formating and installing of a new operating system.
As i dont know what OS your installing i cant give a step by step guide but the on screen instructions are simple to follow.

Hi i have one virus in my computer and he block my system and now i want to know if i can format my computer from command prompt but i type format c: and the computer tell me something about parttion can...


Why oo you want to format the C drive, you would not be able to do that. Why dont you try installing some antivirus and try to fix the virus.

In case you still want to format the hard drive and in the process remove the OS, you would need a bootable cd / DVD for the OS. You would need to start the process of re-installing the OS

First change the first boot device in the bios DVD, then insert the bootable CD in the CD Drive, restart the computer and follow the screen instructions, you would get an option to select new installation or repair the existing installation. Please select new install.

Then you would get he option to select the partition to install the OS. select the desired partition.

Then you would get the option to format the selected partition. select the disered option.

and follow the screen instruction an complete the installation.

  1. First format all the other partitions in your system except the Drive in which the OS is installed.
  2. Most probably the OS drive is C: Drive.
  3. Then get an operating system CD/DVD Windows XP/Windows Vista/Windows 7
  4. Then on start up insert the OS cd and select the option to install the OS.
  5. When you click next there will be an option to specify the Drive in which you will be installing the OS.
  6. Select the Drive in which the previous OS had been installed.
  7. Now in the next stage there will be option whether to install the OS with or without formatting Drive.
  8. Select the Format Drive Option and click Next.
  9. Congratulations you have formatted all the partitions in your System/Laptop/PC

I have a toshiba nb200 when i turn it on i get an error message saying'' the system is not fully installed. please run setup again''...what do i do?


It means Operating System was not installed completely. Do the followings:

1. Insert the CD or DVD of Operating System and then boot your machine.

2. Simply follow instructions to screen to complete the installation.

3. Note that an Operating System have TWO steps to complete before we decleare that OS is installed. In first step it format the hard drive, copy setup files from CD/DVD to formated hard drive in a temp directory. This step is called "SETUP". Your computer reboot itself after this step. It does not mean operating system is installed.

4. In 2nd step, make sure CD/DVD is still in your machine, just watch while OS starts 'INSTALLATION" . You will be able to view the progress.
OS might ask you input OS product key, computer name and some basic network information which you should have handy.

Once Installation is complete, your PC will reboot and NOW you have a full fledge OS on your PC.
