SOURCE: my laptop having a problem

Utilize the System Restore capability in windows. Check to see if you have any restore points available before the issues started or before you installed these free and trial versions of software that you are having trouble removing.
To check for restore points in Windows XP:
Select: Start - Help and Support Center - Undo changes to your computer with System Restore
In System Restore window that pops up, make sure the radio button with "Restore my computer to an earlier time" is selected and then click the Next button.
At this point you will see a calendar. The dates in Bold (example: 8 vs. 8) are dates with restore points you can select. Select a bold date by clicking on it. In the list next to the calendar, you will see the restore points created that day. If you use the arrows at the top right and left of the list frame, you can jump from restore point dates and see the reason for the restore point. Once you find the point that you want to restore to, just click it in the list and click Next.
You will be asked to verify that you want to restore,.. do so by clicking Next. You will not lose data that has been created,.. all data and personal files will be kept,.. but problem programs and settings will be removed or reverted to a previous state.
I hope this helps you get the issue corrected. If you are not confident in restoring your system,.. please consult someone locally who can assist you with it.

SOURCE: i am trying to format

While formating the system you must be careful about a few points. First and foremost is to take the backup of the important data. You should have the Operating System, required software and especially Drivers of the system if you prefer to completely format the system. In this case, it is better to format the system (or C: drive) from windows setup and reinstall the Operating System, software and drivers etc.
From command prompt you can format the drives other than C: which usually has the operating system. The steps/ command to format the D: drive for instance are as under: -
1. Open Command Prompt.
2. Type C:\ and press Enter.
3. Type 'format D:
This will format the D: Drive and wip all the Data.
Alternatively, you can format the drives from the Windows Operating System by right-clicking the drive and choosing 'Format' to wipe the drive you wish to format. It is a safer method as it is visual as compared to DOS prompt. Please note that formating the drive will delete the data on that partition/disk.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Good Luck!
Appreciate generously, if the solution could have been of any help!

When I turn on the laptop, the asus screen comes up and it seems to be booting but after a long while shows an error and restsrts never actually booting up

While it starts to boot up, press the ESC key, or appropriate key that allows you to enter into setup. From the setup area, look for an option to boot into safe mode or into a Command Prompt. Once in safe mode, if it works, press start, and go to run and enter CMD. In this window type in bootrec /fixmbr and press enter. Next type in bootrec /fixboot and press enter. Restart your computer normally.

If you can start in the command prompt, enter in the same commands.

Also if you have a windows recovery or windows installation disk you can access the command prompt as well as fix any issues that are cauing your machine to not boot.
Here is a step by step guide on how to solve such problems.

Follow these steps: Restart your computer in MS- DOS mode. When you get to the C:\> or C:\WINDOWS> prompt, type DEBUG and press Enter.A hyphen (-) prompt will appear waiting for you to enter commands. Enter the following commands, pressing Enter after each one. Note: the o is the letter o and stands for OUTPUT. o 70 2 e o 71 ff q After the q command (which stands for QUIT) , enter Exit. Then try to enter your BIOS at bootup. The password prompt should now be gone and you should now have full access to it again. However, you will now be at the default BIOS setttings and may want to change them to your preference.

My hard drive burnt out. The hard drive test says failed and the operating system won't boot. I placed a leftover hard drive from my Playstation 3 into the laptop and now it says no operating system found....

Try the recovery console from a windows xp recovery/install disk:
To run the Recovery Console from the Windows XP startup disks or the Windows XP CD-ROM, follow these steps:
1.Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.
Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.
2.When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
3.Select the operating system you want to repair (you may have only one option).
4.When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
5.At the command prompt, type the appropriate commands to diagnose and repair your Windows XP installation. From here I would try "chkdsk /r" and "fixboot"
For a list of commands that are available in Recovery Console, type recovery console commands or help at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
For information about a specific command, type help commandname at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
6.To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
Once you've done this restart the computer and see if it boots up.
