My advice is to spend $50 and buy a brand-new disk-drive (probably 2 or 3 times as large as your current), and install Windows onto that disk.

Why replacement harddrive wont install operating software


If it is a new hard drive it could need formatting or if it already has software loaded it could need the drive formatting on a different machine.

I have noticed something strange, probably in the bios settings of one computer I had contact with recently. It resisted all attempts to load an operating system on an empty drive but loading an operating system with a different machine and then reinstalling the drive in the original it accepted the new operating system without any further hitches.

Another thing to think about was the time we tried to take a look at a hard drive and all my friend's machines refused to read it.
It turned out his machines had 32 bit operating systems and the fresh hard drive was on 64 bit.

Reformat hard drive in 11.10


You can not format your hard drive using it's on software on the same hard drive. Because your notebook does not come with a DVD rom or CD rom what you need to do is to get yourself an external DVD rom which you connect to the computer with a USB cable. Then you use the disc of the operating system that you want to use on that Notebook. When you reboot the operating system disc will be recognized and on the screen you will be asked to press any key if you want to run the disc. So you will press and follow the instructions the rest will take you to formatting the disc and loading the operating system.

I have a Emachine T5212 and im trying to reformat my hard drive but my internal dvd drive is not recognized.I brought an external dvd drive,but everytime i try to erase my hard drive it tries to load from...


First you need to have media ready to install once format is compelte.

You can not format a drive you are currently using an operating system unless you run the operating system setup disc in which case you would be booting and running from cd once you start reloading you main drive.

So if you are loading windows .
Review steps below if when you boot you do not have option to select boot device

Boot you laptop / pc and get into the BIOS
<normally f2 or f8 , f12 depending on system.>

Change the BOOT order to cdrom as primary \ you may see the device as USB CD/DVD rom with the actual name of brand there.

Save and exit

Have operating system in cd/dvd rom attached to device

Once it starts to load you will see BRIEFLY in the upper left corner PRESS ANY KEY TO LOAD FROM CD ROM or something similar... stop reading this and press a key ........


From there it should prompt you for setting up a new os, I prefer linux myself but in windows or linux in the setup process you have the option of just loading the operating systems or DELETING THE PARTITIONS and FORMATTING the drive, therefore wiping i .

NOTE: THIS IS NOT WIPING YOUR DATA, if you are trying to hide something, wipe from your drive past **** you never wanna share with anyone again..... repost under how do i wipe my hard drive clean .. its a completely different story .. not hard but different.

My friend has this netbook and has got a ton of Virus on and it won't let her online. How to I format the hard drive on this thing


I would suggest formatting the hard drive ONLY as a last resort. I would suggest installing a new copy of Web-root A/V and spy-ware AND a subscription copy of Malwarebytes Anti-mal-ware programs. You will have to load and run them in Safe mode the first time. If you run then at least once per week after that, you should have no problem. The first time you run the programs, they will clean most of the crud out. Keep running until they show no more threats.

If you still must reformat the hard drive, you will need the original CD to load the operating system and drivers for the laptop. If you don't have the original CD, You will have to load the operating system and find the drivers for the laptop from the maker of the laptop.

If you find this information helpful, Please rate it high. thanks.

Hello the hard drive of our laptop needs a full reformat so i can reinstall xp but how do i format it without a working opperating system? thank you


 You can do a full reformat right from the windows xp install disk.  Put the xp disk in the cdrom drive and restart the computer.  Upon restarting a message will come up ( Hit any key to boot from CD )  Hit any key,  the files will load then you will be able to format the hard drive and also load windows XP.
    If for some reason your system doesnt boot from the cd, you might have to go into the Bios and change the boot order from the hard drive or the floppy to the cd so the computer will boot from the CD first. Hope this helps...                                                           Joe > Data Miner <

My ibm wont start up??????


The problem is going to be with either the operating system or the hard drive, and you will need an operating system disc in order to solve this problem. After acquiring an operating system disc you can try an operating system repair. If the repair doesn't take, then try to reformat the drive (NTFS) and install a fresh version of the operating system. If you have any problems during or after the format and fresh install, then the hard drive has failed and needs replaced. A hard drive failure is the most common with this type of problem, but occasionally the operating system will glitch and cause it. Either way you will need an operating system disc if you plan on fixing this yourself.

Dll error


This is an operating system error. You will need to run a system repair or reload with your recovery or operating system disc. Start with a repair, if the repair doesn't fix it, then reformat and reinstall the operating system. If you have any issues or problems during the format or reload, then your hard drive has failed and will need to be replaced.

Will not load.


my old computer had a problem like this, i think the only way to fix a problem like this would be to reformat your hard drive and reinstall your operating system, which would delete everything on your hard drive...if you do not want to lose the files on your hard drive, you can hook up the hard drive to a different computer as a secondary drive and take the files you need off of it...then put the drive back in the original computer and reformat...after that just put back the files back on the original computer with a flash drive or an external hard drive...
cant think of another way to solve this
