After formatting and reinstalling Windows, you didn't install the software drivers for your computer. You are able to see and use Windows, so graphics is working, right?

Install the sound and video / graphics drivers and your system will work fine.

Yo'll need the driver CD that came along with your computer. If you don't have it, you have to search your computer manufacturer's website for the drivers. However, here's an easy way:

Use this driver scanning tool, which scans your computer for the needed drivers. It has an option to automatically retrieve them for you.

You can download this free tool from here, or directly from this link.

After you have downloaded the above file, double-click on it and follow the simple steps to install it. Then, when it asks if you want to run it, just answer yes. This is easier than manually searching, downloading and installing the drivers.

Hope that helps,
Regards,
Raspal

Have you started your computer with the recovery/installation CD in the drive so that it can re-install the operating system?

If you actually formated the whole hard drive that your operating system is on, then you will not be able to use your computer until you re-install the operating system.

You should have a recovery CD that came with your computer. Put that in the drive, and start your computer. I assume you can see the white text while the computer boots up?

If it doesn't look at the CD, then you'll need to wait for the beep while the computer boots up, and press "Del" to enter setup in which you can specify that your CD drive should be examined first. That way your comuter will read the CD when it boots up, and will give you instructions on how to install the operating system.

After you've installed the operating system, you might need to check and see if you have drivers for your video card, or sound card.

You might not need either one, but if you have them you will need to use them.

Best of luck

Hello
No i doubt the beep will go away if you format.The beep or beeps are trouble codes,a warning something is not right.

Usually related to the cpu,memory sticks,or a video or sound card on the motherboard.or a issue with heat.

Check your motherboard manufacture websight for the codes.Usually a set of short beeps is memory.
Try taking the memory sticks out and reseting them back in.

How can I reformat my A20m IBM Thinkpad..


Doing a Format on your PC Should Be A Last Resort! Reformatting your Windows computer is usually the absolute last resort and is often done unnecessarily. Before you go through the process of doing a reformat of your hard drive please take a few moments to read through the rest of our website. If you are reformatting to fix problems with your Windows computer it's possible that by using some of the tips on our site, or by downloading or purchasing some of the tools or products that we link to, you might be able to avoid the need to reformat your computer. Because doing a complete reformat of your computer will erase the contents of the hard drive and require you to reinstall all software, reformatting is usually a last resort. Some Computer Manufacturers Make Reformatting Easy Many name-brand PC manufacturers include a restore-disk which makes it easy to reformat your PC and return it to the state it was in on the day you purchased it. Some manufactures supply only a standard Microsoft Windows CD, and some (usually lower-end PC manufacturers) supply neither! If your PC did not come with a restore or reformatting CD, then you will need to take extra steps to format your hard drive and get Windows re-installed. Back Up Your Files Before You Reformat your Windows PC!Because the reformat or restore process erases everything on your computer, it is critical to have a backup of any important files on your computer. You will also need your original software install disks to reinstall any software you have purchased.

Things to do before you reformat your PC hard drive
  • Write down or print out all notes and internet pages because once the format process begins, you will no longer have access to them (or anything else in the PC)
  • As already stated, BACKUP all important files and data! When you reformat your computer everything will be erased!
  • Make sure you have all the CDs and other software. All programs will have to be reinstalled after you format the hard drive. Don't forget about software that came with hardware such as printers, scanners, etc.
  • Write down the brand and information for all the hardware on your computer. Look in the Device Manager and make note of the brand and model of network adaptors, video cards, sound cards, printers, modems, and displays. After reformatting you might need this information to reinstall drivers.

I have an Rca opal M4002A mp3 player buts it's really messed up


The Opal has a reset hole on the back of the unit in which a toothpick (non metallic) can be inserted to reboot the player.
If this does not work, I suggest that you reformat the player by using the WindowsTM format command on the unit. To reformat the memory
  1. Right click on the device within the Explorer or My Computer window
  2. Select the format command (full format) to reformat the internal memory of the device.
  3. Reinstall the firmware from http://download.rcaaudiovideo.com/downloads/opal_fwutility_v2.3.0.exe
