Your drive is probably toast. Back up early and back up often. If you reformat you will lose everything. This sounds crazy, but please bear with me. Remove the drive and place it in your freezer and get it as cold as possible. A deep freeze is best. Let it sit overnight. Be prepared to reinstall it and fire up the laptop as quickly as possible. You may get it to fire up and boot properly. If so, have a brand new drive that you can clone. Clone the new drive and replace the old one. It is no good. note: After you replace the drive, you might get away with a reformat and use it as an additional storage drive, but it will always be suspect. don't store anything you want to see again. Backup, backup, backup!!!

Will i loose pictures & other files if i format my pc


Yes you will lose all files when you format.
If you want to save your files but cannot open Windows on your computer then remove the hard drive from your computer and connect this hard drive into an USB hard drive adapter. Plug this adapter and hard drive into the USB port of a working computer, this computer will see this as an external storage device, you can then open the folders on this drive and copy/backup the various folders and files.
After you have copied/backup your files, you can install the hard drive back into your computer to format and reinstall Windows.

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

How to format compaq laptop nx6110


Hi

you could try to do this

Please try to save any files or pictures that you need before you do this either to a usb spare hard drive or a usb pen drive because you will loose it all if you format or reinstall windows

press the power on key as well as the F11 key
hopefully this will take you into the factory restore
which will format the hard drive while it restores

if you just want to format the hard drive itself then you could remove the hard drive
connect it to another computer via a usb cable and use the other computer to format the hard drive that you removed

or there are some good software out there that you can bootup with and format your drive without removing it from your laptop

a bootable spotmau would do the trick but its not cheap to buy
norton system works is another good software

pleasse let us know if this has helped you
many thanks

Unfortunately, this type of virus is actually a virus that is a result of the company that actually has you going to the website to install the anti-virus software, nice huh?
So, there is really only one 100% foolproof way of eliminating this virus and that is by formatting your Hard Drive and reinstalling windows. Now, if you have extremely valuabe information on that drive that you can't afford to lose, then you can perform a small trick. You can install a new Hard Drive in the #1 position of the Seriel Cable or PCMI Position #1 if an older PC. If you are not familiar with the inside of your PC, you'll need to take your PC to a local PC Repair shop and ask them to install a new Hard Drive and OS and pull the data off the old hard drive and have it copied over to the new Hard Drive. Sometimes this may not be possible, but it can't hurt to try. Then the infected drive can be formatted and you'll have 2 drives in your PC, your old one being just a great back up spare drive.
If you don't have such valuable data on the drive, then the process is much simpler. Just reinstall your Windows OS (Windows 7, Vista, XP) whatever version of Windows Software you have. You will need the original Windows OS installation disk if it is an OEM version of Windows, or go and purchase a Full version of Windows and install from the CD.
When you go to install Windows, you will be asked if you wish to format disk prior to installing, make sure you select yes. Then you drive will be formatted, automatically removing the virus, then reinstalling windows on newly formatted Hard Disk.

Hope that helps

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 : http://www.driver-soft.com/
  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
