Hi I am trying to install Windows 7 on an Asus EEE PC 900 I have installed it on USB Flashdrive but when I try to install it on the 15GB partition it states that it must be formated to NSFT,how do I do...


Install should do that for you. However assuming your current OS is on a different partition thenyour 15GB partition will be shown as a separate drive in My Computer. Right click on it and select format, in the format type select NTFS.

Compaq has a website with downloadable drivers for all their computers. Download the drivers, burn to CD and install. Trick is, one model could have different components inside, so they list several different drivers, and not all drivers work with all computers. So unless you know what components are inside your computer, you need all the drivers and just try them until you get the right one.

1. back up

suggest you get yourself a USB hard drive, bigger than the size of all your important files. if you have 20GB of important files, get a external usb drive of atleast 60 or more I don't know if they actually sell that small drives anymore just make sure you have enought room.

2. get the the windows installation cd

with the windows installation cd you can format the hard drive in the setup


3. while in the xp setup

after the format you can install the windows on the computer again right away.

you may need to get drivers for your computer ones the windows is installed again.

you will need to find the correct model from the bottom of your laptop, and the drivers are available on this page

Maxtor Basics external portable hard drive not getting detected


I have a Western digital model wd2500b007-rnn
and I cannot get either my PC or my laptop to recognize the drive. I isolated the drive to another computer with the same error. It says USB device not reognized. I also tried a different port. I have not tried different cables. Can I retrieve the old data on the drive?

Did you find a resolution for this? I am having the same problem. None of my PCs can recognize the drive. Formatting seems to be the only choice but I need to recover my old data first.

Trouble starting compaq presario F551AU


Hey I apoligise for the late reply,

Ok, first off when you turn off the computer without shutting down, windws does not get enough time to wirte necessary data to the disc, this does not always cause aproblem because sometimes there are unpredictable events such as power failure..

You might need to format your hardrive to fix this problem
To do this boot with the windows cd, it will say press any key to boot from disc. (YOU MIGHT NEED TO SET YOUR BOOT DEVICE IN THE BIOS(SETUP))

anyway fisrt off try a fresh install, leaving your current file system intact. Id that works then you will still have all your data on your disc, If not then you need to do a complete format.. Good Luck

Format a Compaq


if its just the one drive in the PC its very simple.. when you format it you lose everything including your operating system (windows).. so you have to start by inserting the installation disk into the CD/DVD drive and choose to install windows.. during this procedure you can delete all data from the drive and re-format it before windows is installed..
