Can't format disk. I do have laptop Gericom and restore system CD come along with it, but when set up new system from CD does not give me an option to format disk as usual with OS CD. After setting up...

You will need to format the disk before trying to install the OS. Download and burn something like Hyrems or the Ultimate boot disk or GParted. and use the partition tools to re-partition the hard disk and format it.

Step by step tell me how i can format my windows vista lapy

Are you sure you want to format and install clean, or do you want to reset to factory defaults,the way it was when the computer was new? If you want to restore, it depends on make and model.

To format:

Boot from your Vista DVD
Follow prompt up until it asks where to instal
Highlight your current Vista installation
Select Advance
Select Format

I formatted my laptop which is using windows vista,how will i bring back the vista again?

once you format your sytems means, you deleted whole OS so you need to reinstall fresh OS on it.
you supposed to have a recovery disk (it comes alongwith laptop while buying it)
but it depends on what basic OS was there when you bought your Laptop if there was XP then you got XP OS recovery disk if there was vista then you have Vista recovery disk.
if you don't have recovery disk then you need to get new Vista disk from market to install back vista in your laptop.

thank you,
