How to Format a Computer

Want to know how to format a computer hard drive?Need to learn how to format your computer and start with a clean slate? Formatting a disk prepares the surface of the drive to accept and store data. Computers are often formatted before they are sold, donated, or returned to an employer. Likewise, computers with viruses or errors can be formatted and returned to their "out of the box" settings.

Warning - Formatting hard drive information does not permanently erase the data. Even after a computer has been formatted, deleted files can be easily recovered. If you want to permanently wipe your hard drive by completely overwritting hard drive data, check out WipeDrive.

How to Format a Computer with Windows XP
The first step in learning how to format a computer with Windows XP or 2000, is to insert Windows CD and restart your computer.

Your computer should automatically boot from the CD to the Windows Setup Main Menu.

At the Welcome to Setup page, press ENTER.

Press F8 to accept the Windows XP Licensing Agreement.

If an existing Windows XP installation is detected, you are prompted to repair it. To bypass the repair, press ESC.

Use the ARROW keys to select the partition or the unpartitioned space where you want to create a new partition. Press D to delete an existing partition, or press C to create a new partition.

Type the size in megabytes (MB) that you want to use for the new partition, and then press ENTER, or just press ENTER to create the partition with the maximum size.

Select the format option that you want to use for the partition (Recommended: NTFS), and then press ENTER.

After the Windows Setup program formats the partition, follow the instructions that appear on the screen to continue installing Windows.

How to Format a Computer with Windows 95, 98, or ME
To reinstall Windows, you will need a Startup Diskette and a Windows Installation CD.

Download the Startup Diskette Creator

Note: We recommend using the Startup Diskette available on this page. Other Windows Startup Diskettes may not work with the following steps.
Once you have your Startup Diskette, insert it into the floppy drive and restart your computer.

Select option #1 - Start the computer with CD-ROM support.

After a minute or so, you will see "A:>_".

Type "fdisk" and press Enter.

If asked to enable large disk support, select Y for Yes. (Note: Some versions of Windows 95 may not be compatible with large disk support. Select N here if it does not support the FAT32 file system.)

Select Option #1 - Create DOS partition or Logical DOS Drive.

Select Option #1 - Create Primary DOS Partition.

The drive integrity will be verified.

Unless you are planning to make multiple partitions, select Y when asked if you want to use the maximum available size for the partition and to make the partition active.

The drive integrity will be verified again.

When completed press the Esc key to exit fdisk.

Without removing the floppy disk, press the reset button on the computer or press the keys Ctrl then Alt then Delete and release them together. This will restart the computer.

Again, select the option to Start the computer with CD-ROM support.

When you see A:>, directly above it is a message about your CD-ROM drive. It will tell you the letter assigned to your CD-ROM drive, take note of it.

At the A:>, type "format C:" and press Enter.

Press the Y key then the enter key when asked if you want to proceed with the format.

The format will probably take some time, so be patient.

You will be asked to choose a Volume Label, which is a name for your hard drive. It has no effect on the operation of your computer, you may choose any name you like.

How to Reinstall Windows XP
To reinstall Windows XP or 2000, imply insert Windows CD and restart your computer.

If your hard drive has not been formatted, Windows XP will walk you through the formatting process described above

Your computer will automatically boot from the CD and begin the installation process

How to Reinstall Windows 95, 98, or ME
After formatting your hard drive as described above, insert the Startup Diskette into the floppy drive and restart your computer.

Select option #1 - Start the computer with CD-ROM support.

After a minute or so, you will see "A:>_".

Place the Windows Install CD into the CD-ROM drive.

Type "E:" (where E is the letter assigned to the CD-ROM drive) and press the Enter key.

Type "dir" and press Enter. You will see something like the following:

Volume in drive E is 020409_1121

Could not proceed to boot

To check your hard disk drive if its detected, turn on your computer and press DEL or F2 to enter BIOS setup. Then go to standard cmos setup and there should be the hard drive detected as Primary or Secondary IDE or SATA. If detected and not loading into windows that case your operating system is corrupted. However If your hard drive is not detected on your bios, turn off your computer and unplug and plug your hard disk drive then turn on your computer start pressing again DEL or F2 then check again your hard drive if it is detected.

If your hard disk drive and cd/dvd rom drive are the same cable you can switch the cable to check if the cable of the hard drive are ok. After you have checked and you found out that the two cables are ok that means you will have to format your computer. But you must backup all your data and files before doing so. Formatting your computer will erase or delete the entire space of the partition which you perform formatting.

Here is the video tutorial on how to format your computer using windows xp

My computer won't always boot up. i push power on, starts drives start to wind up, then it shuts off. sometimes after several times it will start.

its hard to tell but there are various possibilities: it could be of a defective RAM, hard disk, or corrupted operating system try to perform a full format and reinstall ur windows the update all your drivers. If the problem persist u should check your Ram in case of wrong installation or damage.

Dear master, i haved asus P5VD1-X motherboard problems, its no beep bios and no display but cpu fan normal, green light at motherboard its normal too, i haved try to clean RAM, clean VGA card, reconect...

Every Asus motherboard comes with a seperate four pin two wire ( internal speaker). Either you're speaker is not connected properly or the speaker may be bad.
Check manual page 2-28, PANEL. Asus makes these connections easy by provideding a jumper-block as shown below;

c355ca7.jpg The jumper block is clearly marked.
You also mentioned a removal of the CPU. I only hope you cleaned the old thermal grease from the CPU and heatsink assembly with alcohol and replaced with new thermal past. The P5VD1-X comes with a built in AGP card. Settings are configured within the bios menu. I understand you are unable to receive a single to display to the monitor. Connect the monitor to the rear VGA port. When you replaced the bios battery the bios reset its self to default settings. This means the intergrated AGP video is most likely being used by the bios. Remove any added video cards. If you can't receive video to the monitor I would suggest you contact Asus.
For more information call Asus Tech at:

Good luck!

I have a problem with my asus p5vd1-x motherboard. i installed windows 7 os and i don't have sound on my computer. i could not find driver.

Hi, there are many reason that may lead to this problem as windows 7 and new new asus motherboards and compatible which means that generic drivers are installed by windows itself or found on windows update.
Now there are several solutions to solve the problem :
  1. Get on the motherboard manufacturer website to get the driver "click here for the direct link" you'll get the right and updated driver for your motherboard and you just have to setup the application downloaded.
  2. Get a software that automatically detect devices of the computer, find drivers and install them such as driver genius that you may download on it's website :
  3. try to get on sound chipset manufacturer :
    1. Download this driver and unpack (don't need to run setup and it won't help) -> Intel® Desktop Board D201GLY Audio: ADI* AD1888 AC97 Driver
    2. Scan for new hardware but immediately stop the update from Windows Update and instead direct windows to use the drivers you unpacked in step

    Alternatively you might be able to use the RealTek AC97 driver that windows autodetects and installs, but you may have to plug your speakers into the mic jack. If this is not enough detail for you, post back and I'll give you click by click instructions.
    I hope that it will help and don't forget to rate

A7N8X-E Deluxe Nforce2 will not POST

I had the same issue a while back. You need to reinstall windows on the new PC. Your motherboard is expecting to see a certain hard drive that has the windows boot sector on it. If it doesn't see that exact hard drive the computer will never boot... so quick fix, just reinstall windows and everything should work fine.

Boot hang after formatting of hard drive

no there isnt, you need to take it and put it in another computer as a slave drive. But you might have damaged your hard drive, you can try Hiren's boot cd from here but personally i think you might have messd up the drive.

to install as a slave
1.) find a working computer
2.) put hd in as slave (do not remove old hd)
3.) boot
4.) it will show up in my computer
5.) format and unmount drive

it the computer fails to boot ensure you got the drive connected propperly and jumpers are correct

it thats all good then your drive is damaged
