Re-boot the computer with with windows disc inserted into cd-rom drive. When computer says "press any key to boot from cd" then press any key. Windows installation should start. Choose to start new installation. Windows will then delete your files and folders & install windows. If the computer does not ask you to but from cd when you re-start computer you can change the boot sequence in the BIOS so the cd-rom is the first boot device or start the windows disc from my computer when windows is on.

Hello there:
if you are going to use a new operating system and want to reformat the harddrive rember youwill lose all information on the drive .
if this is what you want to do just put in the cd and when it says install the xxx operating system say yes than it weill 3eventually come up to where it shows you the drive and it will give you the option to delete the exsisting partition say yes and continue than it weill tell you about all information being lost press the continue and it will erase all info then it will show you your new partition and it will ask about your new partition this is where you are going to install the new operating system , and from here it will either do a quick or a full format i gnerally do a full format works a lot better but it is slower , than just follow what comes on the screen. ok hope that this all helped i know it is long and drawn out but it is needed in order to understand it ok?

How does wireless work, what do I do to start, I have my internet service with people pc, and I have landline phone, which I want to get rid of, do I get a router, etc, I don't know what to do first?


If you want to get rid of your land line but not internet, just have the phone company turn off the dial tone but leave the data intact. If you want faster internet then you can get cable service and a cable modem with data only as well.

How to keep your Computer clean and running fast.


There is a program called ccleaner and this program cleans your entire computer of unnecessary data IE. Internet browsing history, trash can, and more with a click of a button.

Follow this link:
http://www.ccleaner.com/
If you want to know more about this program or download. I use this program everyday, you can either clean your computer in under 2 minutes, or analyze the data to see how much data you are getting rid of. I would rate this program 4/5 stars for a necessity.

How do i get rid of corrupt data, it is not online. and do not know why its datta is getting corrupt


A system restore should get rid of the problem. If it doesnt get rid of the problem from the system settings in tools then do it from safe mode.


SAFE MODE:

1. Place you finger on the on/off sensor leave it their until you console turns off then take you finger off the sensor.

2. Place your finger back on the on/off sensor leave it their until you hear 2 consecutive beeps then take your finger off.

3. Once the safe mode screen comes on select the option PS3 SYSTEM RESTORE.

NOTE: A PS3 system restore will delete all data except the OS. I recommend backing up your console onto a USB flash drive if possible.


Good Luck!

My computer seems to be infected by the Backdoor, Tidse virus. I have Norton/Symantec anti-virus. Every time I start up the computer, Symantec tells me that a restart is required. Then I restart & it...


Your best bet is to reimage the machine. Even if you get rid of the virus you also get rid of the file(s) it infected. That means those files are no longer available to run and they typically are critical system files. Viruses will hide and then repopulate if you don't completely format and put a clean image on the system. Because you probably don't want to loose all of your data you will want to back it up. Here is another problem because some of that data could be infected as well. I recommend removing the hard drive and use another computer that has a good anti-virus system, backing up your data to another device. Be sure to check your email files because they can bring a virus into your system. Chasing a virus can be frustrating and ultimately unsuccessful. Bite the bullet and give yourself a clean system.

Sounds like you have the famous "rogue security" virus. Be sure and back up all your data before continuing.

Download and intsall this software (it's not free but but better than a tech's fee) Cost $30.00:

If you cannot even get to this page, then get on a second computer and download, purchase securely and install from a CDrom or flash drive to infected computer.

Run the program, register and kill everything. Fast, easy takes 10 minutes or less.

The other way around this is to back up everything and reformat computer. Scan all documents before putting back on computer. Virus is gone. This process takes one day to complete and is free if you have the restore disk or Windows disk.

Philips mp3 player wont turn on


Please try to format the player as formatting it will likely correct the issue. Formatting will destroy all data on the player and get rid of any corruption. You would need to right click on the removable disk icon under My Computer and choose format, we recommend using the FAT file system. The two ways i know how to reset would be to remove the battery or hold down the power button for 20 seconds.
