Hi,

From the description of the problem, it seems that the installation CD you currently have is not compatible with Windows 7 operating system.

You can download the latest installation drivers and software from manufacturer's site by clicking this link

  • You can also place an order for a CD-ROM on the page which opens.
Hope this solves your problem. Thanks for using FixYa.

How do i factory reset. My dell latitude e6430?


You can't really factory reset a computer. You could try Windows System Restore. If you have Windows 7, then your computer has probably been make "restore points" that will let you go back to the state of the system on that date. Maybe there's a restore point close to your purchase date....

Want to go thermonuclear?
  1. Back up all your files. I'd make 2 backups.
  2. Make sure you have all the CDs that Dell sent you with Windows and drivers. If you didn't get those disks with your computer, call Dell and tell them you need them; they should ship them for free. (It seems like Dell decided a couple of years ago that almost no one was using those disks, so they stopped sending them out with new computers.)
OK, here comes the thermonuclear part. You are about to erase *everything* on your hard disk: Windows gone, programs gone, files gone. You will have to reinstall Windows and your programs, and restore your files from backup.

These instructions are for Windows 7, but should be close for other versions.

To install Windows 7 using the Custom option and formatting the hard disk

To format your hard disk during Windows 7 installation, you'll need to start, or boot, your computer using the Windows 7 installation disc or USB flash drive.
  1. Turn on your computer so that Windows starts normally, insert the Windows 7 installation disc or USB flash drive, and then shut down your computer.
  2. Restart your computer.
  3. Press any key when prompted, and then follow the instructions that appear.
  4. On the Install Windows page, enter your language and other preferences, and then click Next. If the Install Windows page doesn't appear, and you're not asked to press any key, you might need to change some system settings. To learn how to do this, see Start your computer from a Windows 7 installation disc or USB flash drive.
  5. On the Please read the license terms page, if you accept the license terms, click I accept the license terms, and then click Next.
  6. On the Which type of installation do you want? page, click Custom.
  7. On the Where do you want to install Windows? page, click Drive options (advanced).
  8. Click the partition that you want to change, click the formatting option you want to perform, and then follow the instructions.
  9. When you've finished formatting, click Next.
  10. Follow the instructions to finish installing Windows 7, which include naming your computer and setting up an initial user account.
Now you have a spanking clean computer.

Installing windows7 os


When you build a new computer you will need to install an operating system (OS) to it; alternatively, if you are upgrading an old computer you may want to install a new OS. Installing Windows 7 is easier than installing any previous Windows operating system and can be done with just one DVD. This process can take up to up to an hour or more depending on the specifications of your computer.

Instructions

1. If you are upgrading and have a previous operating system installed, back up your important files to external media.
2. Turn your computer on and insert the Windows 7 disc.
3. Press any key when prompted to boot from the CD.
4. Click "Install Windows," "I accept the license terms" and then "Next."
5. Click "Custom." Select the empty partition you want to install Windows to. If you are upgrading, select your existing operating system, click "Format" and then click "OK." Then click "Next."
6. Follow the remaining onscreen settings to set your personal installation preferences. Click "Finish" at the end to finish the installation of Windows 7.
7. If you backed up files in step 1, copy them to the new folders such as "Documents," "Pictures" and "Movies" as appropriate.

wondering why you want to install vista in a computer that will totally support windows 7 ultimate. at any rate sounds like you may have a bad install disk. i researched this model and its good build. windows 7 would be better but if your set on vista, call Microsoft and request a replacement disc. as long as you have the original cd and key they will replace it. the disc has the disc id on it.

How to format my laptop


Normal 0

To format the hard disk and re-install Windows use the Windows installation CD, and the Windows Product Code on the label at the bottom of your laptop.

Boot up using the Windows installation CD and follow the instructions.

One of the installation early steps, the option to delete the existing partition, then create a new partition and then a full format on this partition (don't do a quick format) and complete the Windows installation.

Next install all of the Toshiba's computer/laptop device drives.

Next install the Windows service packs (SP2 & SP3 for XP, SP1 & SP2 for Vista)

Next Activate Windows via the Internet or by phone.

Next install your programs - Microsoft Office etc.
Next click on Start - Programs - Windows Update (for the latest updates).

How to install windows 7 operating system


To Install the Windows 7 Operating System (Win 7 OS):

Instructions for a "Clean/New Windows 7 Installation:

AFTER BACKING ALL YOUR DATA THAT YOU DON"T WANT TO LOSE, Do the Following :

1) Insert your Genuine Windows 7 System Disc (Retail or OEM System Installation Disc).

2) Close down all programs and restart your computer.

3) As soon as the computer restarts, you should see a prompt that says something like this: "Press any key to boot from cd/dvd"

....So press any key!... This will boot to the installation disc and prepare for installation or repair (we are going to be installing windows, so ignore the repair options you see on the screen).

*If you don't press a key in time, you will see that the computer will attempt to boot from the hard disc drive instead... if that happens, restart the computer and press a key when prompted.

4) Depending on your particular Windows Version, you will see a prompt that says something about "Do you accept the license terms?" Click "Yes" or "I accept", etc.. and continue on...

5) Choos Custom or Advanced Settings (the other option is for an upgrade..)

6)Select the desired hard disc drive, (HDD aka Hard Drive), Select "Drive Options", and follow the onscreen instructions "Delete the partitions" (Do not Leave another windows installation on the same hard disc drive, unless you are experienced and know how to "dual-boot" properly!) Delete the Partitions.

7) Now choose to install windows (be sure to select the newly deleted empty (unformatted) partition. Windows 7 will automatically format the drive for you and will begin to install windows 7. Follow the onscreen instructions and within a half an hour or less (depending on your hardware) you will be finished, just be sure not to leave the computer unattended while performing a windows installation, since it requires your input quite often to proceed.

That's pretty much all there is to it!.. if you have any more trouble...
Google it or Bing it.... Search Engines are awesome!.... Enjoy!





*NOTE- If your windows 7 disc is a "Upgrade" disc, then you must perform an upgrade while running your previous/older windows version, since Windos Upgrade Discs aren't bootable, they simply patch the older version, replace system files, etc... to transform the previous windows installation into the target/newer version. If you want to perform a clean install, be sure you own a Windows 7 Installation / System Startup Disc.

Xp in hp dv 6907 tx


If the laptop came from HP with Vista as the OEM operating system then the BIOS has been programmed to accept that operating system and only that operating system...other than windows 7. I have been told though that if you have a non-oem hard drive and initialize it on another computer and install it, there may be a chance nthat it will take an XP disc that has been streamed with service pack 3.
