My laptop getting slow and slow.. how do i reformat my computer??

Just get an Operating System CD/DVD, you want to format with, place it in your CD/DVD drive and make a computer reboot. When the computer will restart, during the pre-booting process, it will show "Press any key to boot from CD/DVD". Now press any key to start the formatting process (But before that, be sure, you have CD/DVD boot option ON in the BIOS settings).
Now follow the on-screen instructions. That's all.

For more details how to format Windows 7 from CD/DVD, read this section:

If you are willing to format Windows 7 from USB Drives, you may want to read this section:

NOTE: If booting from CD/DVD is disabled in your BIOS and you don't know how to enable it, please let us know by commenting over this reply.

Hope this helps, Mrityunjay

Difficulties and slowness out in the desktop

I would suggest a thorough scan for virus infection and a registry cleanup with a registry cleaner. If your system does not start up when a removable drive is in the USB port or cd/dvd is in the cd/dvd ROM drive, you have to change the Boot Priority in the BIOS setting. Set the first option to Hard Drive.

Disc consistency, dvd player not recognizing discs

Your cd/dvd drive is most likely failed. Possible controller problem but most likely dvd drive. Replacement is fairly straight forward but replacement may be a bit costly. I would search for sources for used / refurbished drives; contact me if I can assist you further.

Dvd drive problem

I still believe it is the drive. Several months ago, I sent my wife's DV9000 back to HP for repair because of the same problem.
Another thing you can do is to clean the lens. open the drive, then you will see a lens on the tray.
take a cotton swab and dab some alcohol on it and clean the lens. This may help .

I'm not sure why they do the things they do, but they don't seem to put all the drivers on their restore disc. Here's what you should do. Since your old hard drive is still good, purchase a usb to ide/sata cable, ide or sata depending on which your hard drive is. This will allow you to hook up your old hard drive to your computer as a slave drive. This is going to help you in two ways 1- the drivers for your machine are still on that drive and you can have the hardware wizard find them there, and 2- you can use the old drive for storage, backup, or whatever.

Replacing CD?DVD Rom CD-RW Drive for T-30

I would remove the Drive in the meantime to prevent it from slowing down your system untill you can get a new one. You can try new ( more expensive) or ebay. But make sure the person you get it from has a good rating.

Also, sometimes a improperly burned CD will casue your systme to act iratic when its in the drive. Even after removing it.

If this is the case. Try ejecting the drive from windows by going to my computer> select the drive> right click> select " EJECT" and then close it afterwords.

Also you might try removing the device like you would a USB cable. Laptops often consider the CD drive as an attahced device like a USB Drive, Remove it with windows " safely remove Device" at the bottom left, then power off and physically remove it.

Have you also tryed getting all the updates for the laptop? Once you do all this, Re-install it and see if that doesnt help.

Otherwise, just order a new one or get a new laptop, descent ones are not too expensive and with todays technology, anything baught yesterday will be obsolete quickly, no sense in spending lots of time and money trying to fix something that wont be worth it.

Its all up to you on that. Good luck.

There may have been a Windows update that corruptdated one of your Windows Media Player files. Check for spyware or a virus. WMP is usually an avenue for thay sort of thing. Check for updats to all software involved. You may also consider doing a firmware update if they have one. Good Luck, Tim
