Re: How to reformat my computer?

When you boot the windows cd it will give you that option.
to delete partition /create partition.
or to format partition.
if your cd is not set as a boot device you will have to enter the bios just as the computer starts and set the boot order for the cd to be first.

After reformatting you must install the sound drivers. These are found on installation disc that came with your machine or at mfg website. Hank

ASUS desktop help!

Three possibilities:

1. when you start your computer, there could be a message "press BLAH to start SYSTEM RECOVERY". If so, then do so, and you may be able to reinstall Windows.

2. before you reformatted, there could have been a program on your computer that allowed you to burn your own "System Recovery" sets of CD/DVD disks.
Too late now to run that software!

3. Contact ASUS. Since your computer was factory-loaded with a Microsoft OS, they may be able to provide you with a replacement set of CD/DVD disks.

Reformating system u`ll loose infos.why?

This means that when you reformat your system, any documents, pictures, or favorite places will be wiped off the computer, and will not be on the computer after the reformat is completed. To save your personal info, you need to copy it before you reformat.
If you don't have anything on the computer that you want to save, it isn't a problem!

Computer turning off automatically

You don't have to reformat, just restore to last known good configuration. If you know when this problem started, i.e. after a program or update was installed, restore to before that date/time. If it was an update you can hide that update and not be prompted to install again.
If you do need to reformat, simply backup your drivers before you do.

Computer- reformat

In order for the computer to work, and for you to reformat the harddrive, you will need a bootable disk, either one which has a drive utility on it in order to reformat and partition the harddrive or an operating installation disk which includes a drive utility (any windows installation disk has it) - without one you will neither be able to properly reformat the harddrive nor install an operating system on it in order to use the computer.

As you have stated, this is obvious, and your problem is that you do not have an installation disk. A restore disk would not help if you reformatted the harddrive.

You can either purchase a Windows operating system disk, find one (no, not anything illegal - I have spare copies of windows and all of my geek friends have spare copies, because frankly of issues like this),

or download a copy of Linux and burn it to a cd - Ubuntu is a decent choice for a starting Linux user, and is very easy to use (works alot like windows, has tutorials, etc) and is completely free - you can do a search for Ubuntu Linux on google and you will be able to download a copy which can be burnt to disk or request a disk be sent to you, though I cannot remember if they still send free Ubuntu disks out.

Linux typically runs very well on limited resource computers such as the one you are in possession of. Did I mention it was free? If nothing else, you can use it to reformat the harddrive using their Live Boot disk - it allows you to use the Ubuntu operating system without installing it. You boot from the cd and can use their harddrive utility, or install Linux to the harddrive, or just check it out to see how it works.

Formatting problem


Put your hard drive as a slave on another system and delete the desire partition with hard disk tool called Partition Magic or Power Quest. It is Microsoft utility.

This will solve your problem. I am doing same thing when I got problem in any hard drive. It is powerful tool.
