How can I format my hardisk. Can anyone tell the steps !!!!!!!!!!


If you want to format your hard disk completely .my advice is to format all the drives by right click on them ..and choose format ..confirm and choose the quick format for to not spend a lot of time waiting ...after it displays format complete click ok and it will open the empty new formatted drive ..
For the C drive the things are a little different ...To be able to format it you need to either use the recovery cd and format it automatically when the operation system is reinstalled..or do it manually when you install the operation system using a boot-able disk with one of the operation systems in the market ..After choosing to boot from the disk ..and loading the primordial files ..it will ask to press and confirm the agreement with the manufacturer..and soon after will search for pre-installed operation systems..and will find the C drive with the OS on it ...In this point do not choose repair or install but don't repair ..and will show all drives..already empty if you formatted them ..and if you choose the C drive and click install it will ask you if you want to keep the files or format it quick or normal way ...choose one and click enter to proceed ..after that will load OS files and go on with the installation after a restart ..

I have sd card which when I inserted in card reader it is telling it is not formated what to do


If there is data/photos on the card you need to save. Try downloading them with the card in the camera via the USB cable first. this will save your data. Then try formating the card either on the camera or your PC. Sometimes the cards get corupt and it is cheaper to replace them in the long term as this may happen again.

This could have happened by removing the card while the camera was on or by not using the card eject mode on your PC.

Does not read my PNY MICRO SD card to down load my lime wire musi


You may have to format the disk. Right click my computer and click manage. Then click Disk Management and in the right hand side select the 4Gb memory (it will show up as 3. something Gb). and click format (provided there is nothing on it). Format as FAT or FAT32 and when it's done, it should show up in my computer as a disk.
