Question about Dell Dimension 8250 PC Desktop
Please tell me how to remove viruses from my computer. Please help me remove these viruses off of the computer.
You have a Resource CD: Place your CD in the CD ROM Reader and when you first start your computer begin tapping F12 until you get a screen wth 1-7 options i believe. Then find the option that says IDE CD-ROM Device. when you start that you will either gt the options to boot from Hard disk or CD rom device, select CD ROM Device or it will say "Prss any key to continue" hit entr. Then you get a screen with more options. Select whatever is "Open a DOS Session". Then don't worry about what it says. Now just start typing "FDISK" then it will say other stuff about having a bigger HD than 500 or somethingMB just hit "Y" then hit "ENTER" then do the same untill you get to another screen with MORE options. First hit the number 4 to view your partitions. Then select # 1 and it will say are you sure u want to delete Primary and select "Y" and hit "ENTER" or it will say no Primary found. Then hit 2 and delete "Extended" then hit "Y" for yes. Either of these could come back saying no primary or no extended found. Then after that hit "3" and it will createyou a new partition. It should ask you create primary? or create Extended? only create a primary. Then after you create it. Hit "Esc" untill you get to the main menu. Now insert your Operating System CD. If you run Windows XP insert the OS CD. Then power up and you can select Format my Hard Drive (Quick) and The CD does the rest.
No Resource CD: Please insert the OS CD and select the Format My Hard Drive. Do not select Quick. Since yu didn't "FDISK" you do it slower because you want to delete it all. Then the CD does the rest.
Please Note: When you first enter the formatting process at the bottom it will say things like f6 to repair and stuff. Don't bother with that stuff. It will automaticly take you to a screen wit a lot of words just simpily hit enter. After doing that on the OS Disk you should see the Partitioned Space or Un Partitioned Space. Delete the Partitioned by pressing the Down Arrow untill you highlight it and hit the letter "D" then on the next pagethe letter "L". Then it will take you to the screen you saw before. If you don't see any spaces press the letter "C" then highlight it and hit "ENTER" i believe. Twords the bottom of the screen you will see the options and what button to press.
