Good day. I bought this Netbook with Windows 7 installed. I need to format and reload Windows XP as I have software that I need to use that only works with XP, I have an external "USB CD Drive"...


Hi neil720...

Installing the external CD Player...
You will go and start up and install Windows XP by doing he following:
Plug in your external CD drive, and let windows install it into the system...
Once the CD is ready to go, shut down the computer.
***************************************************************************************
You will first need to format your hard drive, I will give you instructions on how to do that.

1...To format your hard drive and install XP:
To set you computer back to factory fresh settings you will need to format the hard drive and install the XP operating system and the drivers.

1.Format the hard drive:
You do this by double left clicking on "My Computer",then double left click the main drive (normally C drive).
When the window pops open, you will choose "Format"
Keep in mind that once you format your hard drive you will loose all your files,programs,pictures,etc that you installed since the computer was new.
So make your back up on a portable hard drive,thumb drive,etc.
2. Once the formatting of the hard drive is complete you will need to install the XP operating system along with the drivers.
You will now insert the CD's into your external CD player starting with #1 first and continuing until all has been installed.
After all has been installed, shut your computer off and restart.
That will bring your computer back to Windows XP factory new condition as far as operating is concerned.

Why does my laptop always ask me if i need to scan my hard drive to fix my problems? I'm afraid of scanning because it might delete or format the hard drive.


If your laptop has not been shut down properly then when you boot up it wants to scan fix problems caused by not shutting down properly or by power failure. It will not format your computer so you won't loose you data. You could lose a file that was opened or not saved when the computer was turned off. If you continually stop the scan and not let the computer fix these problems, it could stop your computer from working properly.

Format laptop lenovo y550


Note: Format would delete all of the data(like pictures, documents.) from the computer. Make sure, you back up all of your important data before formating the hard drive.
1. Insert operating system disk. 2. Shut down and restart the computer.As soon as, you restart the computer, start tapping 'Spacebar' key. Now, this would start loading from disk. 3.Hit F8 to accept the license agreement. 4.Hit enter 5. Enter Enter again and follow the on screen instruction and this would format your hard drive.
Note: once you format the hard drive, you would need to install drivers as well. Make sure you have the drivers and utilities disk as well.

My Compaq Presario 700 CM2130 failed to boot one day out of the blue. It just gave me an error message saying Operating System Not Found. I put in the disk for Windows XP and after a few minutes of loading...


When you get to the BIOS window, do you get a message saying that is going to shut down in some period of time of does it just shut down?

Here is my best guess and solution. I believe you've got a worm virus. If you have nothing that you want on this hard drive, and you've got a full install Windows XP disk, I'd do a full install with a complete format, not a quick format, FAT32, if you can, NTFS, if you can't and reinstall Windows XP.

I have a 600gd external Hard drive. I says its connected to the computer and its working, the light is on and everything and i can also hear it. But my computer isnt able to read it


have you formatted the drive yet?  If this is the first time you are using it, you have to format it.  If not, shut down the computer, unplug the USB and power cable from the hard drive...wait 2 minutes.  Plug the usb into the hard drive and the computer...then plug in the power cord to the hard drive.  Wait 30-45 seconds and then start your computer.  Hopefully that should fix your issues.

Formating hard disk


IF the old PC motherboard will recognize the drive while booting up, Windows 98 will also see the drive after boot-up. You may have to reformat the drive into smaller partitions.

All you have to do is physically install the drive in your old computer and attempt to boot. After the computer boots up, if the drive does not show up shut down and put the drive back in your old computer. Use the manufacturer's partitioning software available on their website to change the drive from one 250 Gb partitions to five 50 Gb partitions.

Computer Shuts Down By Itself


It sounds like the heads that read your hard drive are deteriorating. If you have data that you need on the hard drive hook it up as a slave drive to another computer and save your data now. Because eventually you will no longer be able to access any data on the drive. Then you will have to send it to one of those data recovery places that use clean rooms to recover your data. That will be very expensive.

Or you might have a bad sector in bios. In that case, I am not sure what to do.

Shut down computer, plug in USB hard drive, start computer, open "My Computer" and see if drive shows? If so, you may have to format it before using it.
