Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional
I want to reformat my computer
Lil, What do you mean by reformat? If it is the exact computer lingo then you want to erase everything from the HDD and reinstall Windows. is that what you want. If yes, then you must be prepared to lose all data unless you back it up before doing that and also reinstall all the programs that you have besides Windows, which in any case you are reinstalling. To do this you must first back up the data to a removable disk or a different partition of the HDD. Insert the Windows CD into the CD drive and reboot. Follow the instructions and after two reboots you will have a new installation of Windows. Now restore the data that you backed up. Also, reinstall all the programs that you had earlier or atleast those that you want now.

First thing you must do is back everything up that you need..(your old OS/software/games if you are replacing it w/ a new OS just in case) to a laptop/portable hard drive. also have that recovery disk handy...once you format you are wiping it clean/blank/erasing ..there is no turning back...if this is 98/xp and you are upgrading to vista or 7....remember 7 do not roll back as well..it has to be compatible with it... okay go to start/my computer/ c drive right click properties format.....are you ready to do this?
count down is on you (to click format okay)...this may take a awhile depends on how big of hard drive you have,,,,,once completed reinstalled or install your OS...then everything else..hope every thing turned out to what you wanted
