When you switch on the PC press F10 repeatedly until the recovery menu comes up.

Choose the option that suits you and allow it to run.

BACK UP YOUR FILES FIRST.

Resizing the partitions has affected the partition size of the hidden recovery partition. This is why the recovery does not work.

I need format my hd


You can't format the HDD, or you don't have a operating system. You need a windows disk, recovery disk, or contact the MFG with your serial and see if they will send you a system disk or recovery and the windows serial.

Second, you don't format from NTFS to NTFS to clean a HDD, you use software like active killdisk, or one from the MFG of the HDD, WD has a tool cd, so do most.

Well I tried to reboot my my tashiba laptop and i don't know how to. I have tried the cd but I don't know what to do


To reinstall the computer ..you need either the recovery cd ..or the cd with the operation system in a bootable form ...If you have one of that ..you need to either use the F8 or F11 (depends on the bios model ) to start the boot menu ....and choose to boot from cd ..or to get into bios by pressing del or F2 ..and in there look for the boot sequence ..or boot order...and select the cd /dvd to be the first boot device ..than save the changes with F10 and hit enter ..
After you changed the boot order...restart with the cd in ..and folow instructions on screen for to reinstall or recover the operation system ..
In recover case ...just select the recover and it will go by itself..but in case yopu have a os cd ..you have to press any key to boot from cd when asked..and after that wait untill it loads all files needed..and it will restart ...second time do not press to boot from cd ..and it will ask for the agreement and look for previous installations ...In this moment select to not save anything (esc) and select the C drive hit enter and go for it ...The actually formating of the C drive is made in this moment by selecting to format it in NTFS either quick or normal ..and after that it will start loading windows and keep on ...by following the instruction s..
Good luck ..and pay attention on the boot sequence and the formatting ...
If anything goes wrong ..just take it from the start ..and it will be OK ..
In case you do not use the recovery cd ..make sure you have all drivers stored before you start the procedure ..cause you will need them after the installation is finished..

How can i reformat my packard bell laptop without the recovery cd?


The recovery cd is just a Pre-Built Windows version that includes the drivers you need for your computer.
If you want to format your pc and lack the original recovery cd, you just need to get a Windows (or other operating system you want) installation CD/DVD, put it on your optical drive and reboot your computer.
On installation, you will be asked what you want to do: Fix or Install. Choose install and check to format your disk.
After installation, if something doesn't work, its because you don't have the needed drivers, so go to Dell's Support Page find your computer, download and install the drivers you are lacking (video card graphics, sound, etc.)
Hope it was helpful ;)

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:\

    Gooday Toshiba Experts, My 30MB hard drive HDD2181, has apparently a lot of bad sectors. I am able to format it with a recovery CD. Recovery process is aborted repeatedly. The laptop is Satellite...


    With so many bad sectors preventing a format, I would recommend the purchase of a new hard drive. You will most likely need to buy an IDE 2.5" hard drive for your laptop. However, you should double check the manual to see if it uses IDE or SATA. You can get whatever size hard drive you want for it.
    I wouldn't recommend any manufacturer over the others, they're all quite similar, almost some people have their own personal preferences. Just look for the correct drive type, space you want, at the price you want. Don't focus too much on the manufacture.
    The new drive can be formatted with a recovery CD, however it would be easier to format with the Windows CD when you reinstall the operating system.

    Hi every bodey i have did format my laptob it's sony vgn-cs230j/w he is an american system so the did gone i dont know how ,i just did format the laptob and i did install another windows then after time...


    It seems that you have formated you laptop with CD. It has formated the recovery drives so you need to reinstall your laptop with CD if shipped with the laptop. F11 would not work in this scenario if you have already formated the Laptop with other CD coz whenever you format the drive and create partition with any third party CD it normally delete the Recovery partition from the laptop. If the case is such then you cant get back you old recovery partition. But you can create a recovery disk from the same laptop if you can find... one with any friends etc and then re-image your laptop with that disk. After that all the setting will be back. Or you can contact with SONY support for the same issue they can provide the same disk.
