Dell Dimension 2400 machines with disk read errors - won't boot!


A clicking sound from the hard drive is the one sound you never want to hear. It means the drive has failed. If you need the data, you have no choice but to send it out for data recovery.
On the second one, I would suspect a hardware problem, but in this case I would try to run the program "spinrite." If the computer can't detect the disk, I would install this disk as a second disk in another system. See if the other system can read it. If it, too, cannot detect it, then you've got another bad disk.

I need to reformat my pc please help it is compaq presario 6330ca


You will need a windows installation disk.

Insert the disc into the CD/DVD drive and shutdown the computer. After powering back on the computer you should be prompted with the installation screen. Follow the directions to reformat your computer.

If you have multiple partitions and would like to format only one that is not the operating system drive go to the control panel > System and security > Administrative tools > Computer Management.

Once Computer Management is open select Storage > Disk Management. You can select a partition you would like to reformat from here.

Reformating any drive will erase all data on that drive. Only do this if you are sure you want to. I would stronly recommending backing up all files you might want later.

Reformat my computer to windows 7


ATTENTION!
Reformatting a computer will reset it to the factor image, all data must be backed up or it WILL be lost. There are several reasons to reformat a hard drive. A few reasons include but are not limited to: driver issues, virus, cleaning up, getting rid of the computer, etc.

RECOVERY DISKS!
Every new windows 7 owner should know that the new computers are not supplied with recovery disks anymore. The manufacturer allows the user to create one set of disks upon the purchase of a new machine. It is important to create the disks early as driver issues and viruses may arise. In order to create recovery disks on windows 7 you want to click on the start menu. Next, type in recovery in the Start Search option area. Next, click on recovery disk creation and follow the process. It will require that you have about 3 dvds or about 7 cds to create the recovery disk.

REFORMATING HARD DRIVE!
Once the recovery disks have been made reformatting windows 7 is quite simple. Insert the recovery disks into the cd/dvd tray on the machine. You are now going to want to turn the computer off. When the computer has turned off, go ahead and turn it back on. A screen should pop up asking you whether you want to boot from Hard Drive or Disk. Choose the disk option. After you make it this far it is a downhill process. Next you follow the on-screen instruction make sure you reformat the machine, not recover it.

I just want to restore to factory defaults


The best way to reset your Laptop to Factory Default is to reformat it. Depending on which version of Windows you have this will create a directory in your Hard Drive called Windows.old, or depending on whether or not you deleted the partition, it will erase everything. You'll want to back up your hard drive if you have anything worth saving.
Beyond that, pop in your recovery disk, or if you don't have it, put in your Windows disk, then restart your computer. When your computer is booting up, head into the BIOS and set your computer to boot from your DVD Drive. If you aren't sure how to do this then reformatting is probably not a good idea. Once you've booted from the disk, just follow the instructions to reformat.

My computer display error disk reading while it is


check your disk for scratches etc and make sure it is clean. Then, using the disk, reformat the hard disk and re-install from there. DONT take the disk out of the drive unless the installation program asks you too. Once the install program releases control and you have entered any names and passwords, then you can remove the disk. Once everything is finished, make sure you re-install your mainboard drivers next. If you no longer have this disk, you can download them from the PC's manufacturer or the mainboards manufacturer.
