    Do you have the Operating System disk? Like Windows XP or a system restore disk that came with your system?

Hi bethybaby90, I would like to inform you that Formatting a PC is to delete all the data that currently is on your Computer and upgrade it to a newer version of an operating system or install the same operating system once again on the same computer.
The process of formatting is as follows:
1. Insert the WINDOWS XP bootable disk in the CD drive.
2. Restart your PC (if it was already running).
3. Press enter when the monitor reads PRESS ANY KEY.
4. Now comes the time to partition your drives.
5. If you want to delete any partition, press D or L(whichever is displayed on the screen).
6. Afterwards format the drive you want to install the operating system (XP) in.
7. Press ENTER.
8. The formatting will start.
9. Follow the procedures.
10.It should take around 40 minutes for the installation to finish.
11.Use windows(HAVE A GOOD TIME).

I hope this resolves your issue.
Your feedback is appreciated.

Askari :)

Blank screen


A white blank screen? That sounds like the virus changed your display settings. Click Ctrl+Alt+Del to get to the task manager. Press and hold the Ctrl key plus the Alt Key then hit the Del key. When the task manager opens up Click File at the upper left corner of the window then select New Task RUN. When the create New Task Window opens type: explorer.exe and hit OK. See if it starts populating your desktop icons and shows the start menu and task bar. If so, the virus changed your settings.

To change your display background click Start/Control Panel and look for Display or Appearance and Personalization. When it opens select the Desktop tab and change the desktop background. Hopefully the white will go away.

You may have to get into Safe Mode to do the above if the virus disabled the Task Manager.

Keyboard shortcuts for Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, 7 and Microsoft Office


Windows

Windows Key+E
This shortcut allows you to open Windows Explorer with one quick keystroke.

Alt+Tab
This allows you to easily toggle back and forth between all the windows you have open. You can also use this to switch between windows in the same program, making multitasking real easy.

Windows key+Tab
This lets you scroll the items on the taskbar, and in Vista, it starts Flip 3D for a fun graphical spin on the same idea.

Alt+F4
This shortcut is a quick way to close a window in any program without using your mouse to hit the X in the upper-right corner.

Windows Key+M
This allows you to minimize all of your open windows, leaving just the desktop left exposed. To restore the windows, hit Windows key+Shift+M. Another quick way to do this is Windows key+D, which shows your desktop; to restore, just repeat the same keystroke.

Ctrl+Drag
There are many ways to copy a file, but this just might be the easiest. All you have to do is click on the file, hold, and drag it into its desired location. This works the same as another handy shortcut, Ctrl+C.

Windows Key+U+U
This is the shortcut for quickly shutting down Windows by hitting the Windows key (don't hold it down), hitting U to reach the shutdown menu, and then hitting U again to shut down.

Windows Key+Pause
This is a quick way to get to the Systems Properties menu.

Shift+Delete
If you want to delete a file-and you don't want to deal with it later in the Recycle Bin-this is the way to go. Just be absolutely sure that this is a file you won't want back!

To bypass the Autorun when inserting a CD
Hold Shift While Inserting the CD.


Microsoft Office

Ctrl+U, Ctrl+B, Ctrl+I
Used to snap to underline, bold, and italicize without the mouse if you press Ctrl+U (underlining), Ctrl+B (bolding), or Ctrl+I (italicizing).

Shift + Arrow Keys
Holding shift and pressing one of the arrow keys will highlight text in Word (or a group of Excel cells) without the mouse, selecting in the direction the arrow points.

Ctrl+Z, Ctrl+Y
Undo an action by hitting Ctrl+Z; if you change your mind, Ctrl+Y will redo the undo.

Hello, I try to format my computer. Can someone help me please. thank you


most laptops that have the factory load on them, you restart and press a combination of either ALT F10, F11 or CTRL F10, F11 or just F10 of F11 by itself at boot up.

You should get a restore type menu.

All of my Icons and start menu are gone. Emergency.


Oh No.. Delete is a button that can get you into trouble quickly. You need to find the RESTORE under system tools and try that. You could re-install the Operating System (OS) but this is a lot of work. The .exe file mean executable. That means that when you click on them something happens. You got a bad deal from Dell and yes they are overpriced. However they are probably right about a virus.Viruses corrupt exe files and cause problems. If I were to tackle this problem I would format to clear the viruses and install the OS

Left alt key not functioning in pagemaker


Hello,

If you cannot access your Task Manager when Pressing the Ctrl+Alt+Del, this means you have a virus on your system which has disabled the task manager. If you have a good antivirus like Norton, Kaspersky or McAfee try scanning to detect the virus.

OR

Format your system, but before doing that makesure you backup your data before doing that.

Dell Latitude D620 Full System Recovery?


It's easy to miss the point at which you hit Ctrl + F11. You need to hit Ctrl + F11 at the point you see the blue bar across the top of the screen, it will display www.dell.com. If this is still not working you can use the XP operating system CD to reinstall XP and the Dell drivers CD to reinstall the sound, video, network and other drivers. If Dell didn't send you the operating system CD, you should contact them.
