If you do have some backup on your file, you need to have other Hard Disk Drive to copy all of the files inside.

Hi, I am owning a dell inspiron 1525 for the last 3 years now. Few days ago when i was formatting my laptop to install a new OS, i accidentally deleted a partition and it became unallocated. My hard disk...


Startup from the windows 7 disk as if you were going to reinstall. Choose 'advanced' in the section where you sort out the disk to install to, and partition the unallocated space. Then exit out, do not continue to the format and install stage.
Once you have restarted into your original windows, you can format the new partition as normal.
Having said that, 10gb is pretty small for an OS partition, 15 0r 20gigs would be better and you can swap some space from your new partition to the OS partition. There are plenty of tools you can use to do this with at www.download.com.

Getting on to windows


This simply means that your hard disk boot area is corrupted. If you have a Windows (if you are using windows OS) installer CD, you need to re-install it overwriting the old windows installation so that all your programs and files will not be deleted. Don't format or delete any of the partitions or else all your data will be lost.

Administrator password Dell Inspiron 1720


If the system is asking for an administrator password in Windows and you are wanting to format and reinstall the system, then the password shouldn't be an issue. Most inspiron systems are equipped with a PC Restore partition CTRL+F11 just after the Dell Splash Screen should enable the restore process. If PC Restore doesn't work, then boot to the XP CD and format the NTFS partition and install Windows XP clean. If you have Windows Vista, the PC Restore is run from the F8 Boot menu. If no restore partition is accessible in Vista, then again Boot to the Vista DVD and format the NTFS partition and install VIsta.

I would like to wipe out my c: drive and reinstall ms vista. How do I do that?


Insert the Vista disc into the cd-rom drive. re-boot the computer. It should ask "boot from cd press any key" at that point press any key. When it boots up it you want to pick install windows and pick new installation. Doing this will erase the old files and do a fresh installation. Sometimes computers like Dell have a set of cd-roms to do this and the process is a little bit different. If you cannot get the cd-rom to boot like I stated above then you can go into the computer BIOS and change the boot sequence so the cd-rom drive is first. Or you can run the cd-rom from windows and pick new installation.

How do i restore my dell inspiron 1501 to factory settings without the disc? i lost it and im goin nuts...


Contact Dell to purchase a Recovery CD for your model Dell laptop.
The other way is to do a new Windows install. Use a Windows installation CD, it must match the Windows version on the Windows Product Code label on the bottom of your laptop.
You will also need to download the device drivers for your model laptop from the Dell WEB support site, make sure the download the correct XP or Vista version of the drivers that match the Windows version you are installing.

How do you reformat a computer


Assuming you don't mean the BIOS...
It suffices usually to reinstall Windows or whichever OS you intend to use. You let the installation program format the partition (watchout you loose all data which was on that partition)
