Question about Compaq Evo N610C Notebook
I have no idea how to format my notebook can sameone help me??
Yep ...its tricky ...the partitions that do not contain any operating system ...may be formatted...from the My computer ...and right click on the partition icon ...choose format and after that NTFS...and the formatting you want ....its better to format slow...not quick ...but if you do not do it often ..it doesn't matter
with the C partition its the issue ...cause you have to boot from cd to go there and format it when you are installing a clean operating system ...it will prompt you to delete format and save ..I believe it might be possible ...if you have a boot-able installation disk ....with a partition magic program ...this will be a little more simple ...
in short beware cause formating will erase all you have on it ....and for C partition just boot from cd..and install OS ...after loading system files...it will ask what you want ...choose dont repair... install ...delete (D) ...confirm (L) enter continue...create (C) and format NTFS...after that will go on with the installation normal ....

If you are just talking about doing it from windows, then you can just go to Start>Control Panel>Administrator Tools>Computer Management then click on Disk Management, then click on the drive you want to format, right click on the drive, and then click FORMAT. You can also do this from My Computer if your computer detects the Hard drive.
You will need a boot disk, such as Windows XP disk, or Partition Magic boot disk.
Go into your BIOS and make sure that you can boot from your CD, probably best if you make this the first boot device too.
If you have a windows XP disk then this is simple and you can format during the setup.
Partition Magic or any other program, its a little more tricky beucase each one is different. I recommend downloading and burning this disk:
This has pretty much every tool imagineable for bootup utilities. There are 3 or 4 differnt format tools.
