If you want to format to whole hard drive you can simply put the windws/linux cd in the drive and instal the O.S. and when is asking in whitch drive you want just format all and partition haow you want(or if you made a back up just restore the O.S.)
if you want to format just a partition for example d:/(that is not O.S. on it) go to my computer -click on the drive -right click -format.

Um, start over with the Windows disk, and reinstall from scratch. If the drive has been formatted, then there's nothing left there to recover.

Bought a dell inspiron mini laptop from garage sale when turned on it asks for HDD password which i dont know and cant obtain


Format the hard drive, if it will let you, and start from scratch. If it won't let you format it, buy a new hard drive and install your choice of OS to it.

I haven't got the disk that it's asking me for.... I tried to format the laptop... It said it had finished and to re start... So I did.... Now it's telling me the 'application is missing or corrupt' .


The format command is used to completely erase the information on the hard disk so that new information can be written to it. You have erased the disk so there is no application on it. You need to start over from scratch by loading a new operating system into it off of a disk. Then reinstall all applications you want on it. Never format unless you need to start with a fresh drive!

I want to format my portable hard drive to be able to back up my laptop.


First you plug it in to your lap top , then wait for it to install ..
Once your laptop says your device is now installed and ready to use , go to the start menu , then click on computer..
Next a window will pop up and you will see a list of drives on the left hand side , find the one that is your external Hard drive ( it wont be C drive, that is your main drive of your laptop ) ..
Next right click on the drive letter once you have found it , then click on format..
Once the format screen pops up , just check the quick format box and then push start !!!
Once it is finished , your hard drive will be formatted !!

How can increase memory/speed on my Acer notebook? What is 'FAT 32'?


memory is a hardware upgrade which usually plugs in into the bottom of the laptop. If you look on the bottom you will see a couple doors that unscrew and, but depending on the laptop you will be limited to how much you memory you can add. Also since you are asking about fat32 I will assume your laptop is at least 6 years old (FAT32 is the format of the hard drive, old DOS used FAT, when Microsoft released windows 95, it made options for bigger hard drives called FAT32, then with the release of Windows NT and later Windows machine use a hard drive format called NTFS. NTFS is still the current disk format even with windows 7) NTFS is more secure and can handle very large hard drives. If you let me know what ACER you have I can let you know how much memory you can add.

Dv6 Pavillion gives 3F0 error and will not boot up, saying an OS needs to installed on the HHD, but the laptop will not acknowledge that a HDD is installed.


Sounds like you need to start from scratch and format then complete reinstall. You will need to boot from the Windows CD and see if that recognises the HDD. If you have information on that HDD which you need you will have to remove the disk and plug it into another PC as a second hard drive and copy what you need. Cheers from Scott and plz vote

Need hard drive, larger capacity would be good


To avoid having to format and completely re-install all your software, I would RECOMMEND you get an add-on USB hard drive that you can just plug in.
