You will have to reformat it again. its likely a bad sector has been created on the hard disk, and windows file is probably occupying the bad sector. Try to reformat your hard drive. If that doesn't work, try to reformat it with windows 98 bootable disk. If it doesn't work, get another hard drive and test to see if it will work. If that works, then know you may have lost the MBR (Master boot Record) of your hard drive.

Stop:0x0000007B error occurs when formatting the windows xp


It sounds like a boot sector virus, hardware issue or registry issue. When reformatting make sure you delete existing partitions and create a new one. Also if your trying to downgrade microsoft windows doesn't allow it. You will have to use gparted live cd and completely format the drive then try reformatting. for more info contact me at kryptonix@gmx.us

How to reformat an asus aspire 1 netbook


A) It's an Acer Aspire 1 - AOA110, or AOA150.
B) Came with Windows XP, or a version of Linux.
Linpus Linux Lite

Means;
1) You can use a version of Linux, and not use Windows again.
Ubuntu Linux for example, is free.

2) You could use a flashdrive with a data recovery program on it, and try to recover the files that have been written over.
Pretty slim chance of that.

3) You could buy a new, genuine copy of Windows XP, and put Windows XP back on it.

Windows xp on 8460p


Hi Jon,

Make sure that you reformat the hard drive first before installing XP, if you are trying to install XP over the existing Operating system that may not work if you have Vista or Win7 running.

boot from the Disk to be able to start outside of windows instead of putting the disk in when windows is up and running.

Put the Win Xp dic in restart the laptop kee on tapping f12 then it should ask your where to boot select the cd/DVD this should boot from the disk directly and will be asking you to reformat the hard drive and inform you that the existing windows will be deleted, just say yes, that should go the way you want it.

How to change the language of my laptop from korean to english,the brand of my laptop is LG.I tried to change from the language from the control panel but it doesn't change.


Hi ccharlescart ,

Welcome to FixYa! How are you doing?

You did not specify the operating system you are using (whether Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7).

If you are using Windows XP, I suggest you reformat the Hard Drive and install a fresh copy of Windows XP.

But if you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7, you can download a language pack that will allow you to change the language to English. By the way. Windows 7 starter edition does not have an option to change the language.

Hope it helps. Thank you for using FixYa!

I change to windows 7 and battery start showing need to be replace


Hi, this is a known issue in many Laptops which have upgraded to Windows 7 Operating System. I suggest that you check for the Drivers compatible with Windows 7 Operating System by visiting Laptop Manufacturer's Website. By installing all the updated Drivers of Windows 7 the Laptop functions as expected. If the laptop manufacturer doesn't provide Windows 7 Compatible Drivers then you have to downgrade to Windows XP. Please install WIndows XP to get rid of the replace battery message. The issue is not related to Battery.

Hi,

You cannot downgrade Windows 7 from Windows XP by not reformatting the hard drive. You need to Remove Windows 7 first, before installing Windows XP Operating System. In order to use the Windows XP CD to fully reformat the Hard drive, follow the steps on the link below.
