Question about Gateway 400SD4 LP141XB LCD VIDEO CABEL DDOOA6LC706 CD-ROM Drive
If you have the windows xp install disk (or restrore disk), then this will be easy! Just put the disk in, eboot the computer, and see if it comes up with the prompt "press any key to install" if it does, then press any key, and follow the prompts. When it gets to the "hard disk formatting" then press "d" to delete the partition. (You may need to press "l" and "enter" after) This should be easy enough. However, the computer may not start up from the disk, in which case, you will need to access the bios (see instruction manual) and change the boot order so that cd or dvd comes first. I wont provide detailed instructions on how to do the bios stuff, as it differs from computer to computer. (Common keys to press whilst starting up to get into the bios are delete, and all of the "f" keys.)
Hope this solves your problem!
