My laptop getting slow and slow.. how do i reformat my computer??


Just get an Operating System CD/DVD, you want to format with, place it in your CD/DVD drive and make a computer reboot. When the computer will restart, during the pre-booting process, it will show "Press any key to boot from CD/DVD". Now press any key to start the formatting process (But before that, be sure, you have CD/DVD boot option ON in the BIOS settings).
Now follow the on-screen instructions. That's all.

  1. Computer is booting from a non-bootable source.
  2. Computer hard disk drive is not properly setup in BIOS.
  3. Corrupt NTLDR and/or NTDETECT.COM file.
  4. Misconfiguration with the boot.ini file.
  5. Attempting to upgrade from a Windows computer that is using FAT32.
  6. New hard disk drive being added.
  7. Corrupt boot sector / master boot record.
  8. Seriously corrupted version of Windows.
  9. Loose or Faulty IDE/EIDE hard disk drive cable
  10. .
To Fix
  1. Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer.
  2. When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key.
  3. Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows.
  4. Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and pressing enter.
  5. You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password.
  6. Copy the below two files to the root directory of the primary hard disk. In the below example we are copying these files from the CD-ROM drive letter, which in this case is "e." This letter may be different on your computer.

    copy e:\i386\ntldr c:\
    copy e:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\

  7. Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the computer and reboot

Error loading operating system


Firstly have you set your jumpers on your hard drive setting before placing into computer. If not check if the cd rom is on the same cable, if on same cable then change the jumper.

Have you gone into bios and loaded the hard drive. If a new hard drive you will need to detect it in bios first. Then Save and exit.
To go into bios, press f1 or f2 or DEL when you first start computer. Each computer is differentand you'll have to see which you require to press.

After bios is setup, put in your copy of windows xp, or your boot disks and follow instructions to set partition and format drive, then install operating system.

If you are only installing a new secondary drive as a backup, you will still need to detect in bios first. Then load you windows and go to my computer and format the drive using windows.

Boot hang after formatting of hard drive


no there isnt, you need to take it and put it in another computer as a slave drive. But you might have damaged your hard drive, you can try Hiren's boot cd from here www.phazeddl.com but personally i think you might have messd up the drive.

to install as a slave
1.) find a working computer
2.) put hd in as slave (do not remove old hd)
3.) boot
4.) it will show up in my computer
5.) format and unmount drive

it the computer fails to boot ensure you got the drive connected propperly and jumpers are correct

it thats all good then your drive is damaged
