How to reformat 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.

    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.

    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:\

    Need to reformat my dell insprion 1501

    You first need to ensure that the you have the drivers on the cd's or check if they are avaible on dell's website..

    Then you will need a Windows XP CD.. Just put the windows xp formatting cd in cd-drive and restart computer...
    When it should say "press any key to continue." (or similar) just press a random key on the keyboard..
    (If it doesnt say "press any key to continue", right when you turn on computer press F2 and make CD/DVD Drive the first on the Boot list.. Then save settings..)
    Wait for the blue screen to finish loading..
    Delete the partition and install windows on the unformat space..
    Format it as NFTS (select quick if u are in a hurry, but i doesnt recommend doing so..
    Then just follow the instructions on the screen until finishing installing windows..
    If your sound, wireless and stuff like that doesnt work after formatting insert the drivers cd i mentioned in the beginning and install its contents..

    For futher details:

    Thinkpad r40 - wireless disappeared

    Go to the control panel, then System, then Hardware tab, then Device Manager. Then Network adapters - you should have two network adapters one LAN and one wireless.
    If most likely have one, the LAN adapter and a yellow ? against a network adapter - this will be a wireless adapter (its not installed)

    Check your BIOS and make sure the wireless card is enabled.
    You need to download from the IBM/Lenove WEB site the wireless driver (there may be several types that is installed for your model laptop). Make sure you select the correct Windows version driver.
    When you run the driver,it will uncompress and copy to your hard drive in C:\drivers. You can then install the driver from this directory. If it doesn't work then repeat with another driver, most likely one that works will be the Intel one.
