Formatting is used to erase yourhard drive. Many times, this is used to clean a hard drive after a virus or toperform a completely clean installation of a new operating system. A Compaqlaptop can be easily formatted, but formatting will only solve system problems,not hardware problems. The process should only be used to solve problems as alast resort, since it will erase all of your data. 1. Back up all data before performingthe format (if possible).2. Insertthe operating system disk and restart your computer and wait until prompt fromthe system.3. Strikeany key when prompted to begin running the disk.4.Choose between reinstalling yoursoftware or repairing. Reinstalling will allow you to format and thenreinstall. Repairing will bring you to a DOS menu. You will need to use FDiskwith each individual drive letter on your hard drive. Use this option if youhave a multiple partitions on your drive and only need to format a singlepartition.5.Choose "Full NTFS" formatif you choose to reinstall the operating system.Remember:Most users will only need to use thereinstallation option. This option is perfect for users with one partition orthose reinstalling or upgrading their operating system. Never format your Compaq laptopwhile on battery power. If the battery dies during the format, you could ruinyour hard drive.Hope this helps, pleaselet me know if you need further assistance.Please don't forget to rateand comment if my solution was helpful, thanks!
The Hiren CD is a tool and you correctly formatted your hard disk, but Hiren CD does not install Windows on your hard disk. You need the Windows installation CD and the Windows installation product code to install a fresh installation on your hard disk.
The Windows version that was installed on your computer and the installation product code is on a Windows label that should be attached to the back of your computer.
If you don't have a Windows installation CD then contact Compaq/HP for a copy.
(1) take the hard drive out and connect it to another computer, right click on the drive, and click format
(2) You need a windows or other operating system disk....just start it like you were going to install windows, and select advanced disk options (it's a link, easy to overlook but it's always there)
You can not format a disk with a running operating system on it.
There are other "bootable" disks you can also format the hard drive with...an Acronis Backup boot disk, probably a Norton Ghost boot disk....things like that...not all bootable CDs, but usually a backup or disk imaging program will allow you to format a hard drive
Your pendrive is infected with Autorun.inf virus
to remove this virus install malwarebytes (It is antimalware
software)and scan your whole computer as well as your pendrive when
you scaning finish remove all threats
IF the above method is not work
Try to format in other operating system like windows vista or in
windows 7 because in vista and 7 you can force format your pendrive
low-lable format can solve ur problem.
at first create windows98 startup disk from any win98 pc or use windows98 bootable cd. and download disk manage 9.54 for samsung hard disk. and copy it in a cd. then boot ur pc with windows98 bootable disc or startup disk. then inseart disk manager cd go to cd rom drive give "dm" commnad. run low lable format form advance --->utility ----->maintanance------> low lable format. after complete low lable format (it can take saveral time) then creat partition and format each partion.
If I understand you right, all you want to do is to successfully complete the format of a 4Gb Jet Flash/Transcend Flash Drive. You were unable to complete it using the Windows built-in format function. Further you can not access, read from or write to the said flash drive.
