If you reformat you will lose all data on the hard drive.But if you need to reload the OS you can do this with the restore disc.You need to get into the Bios and when the computer first starts you need to set it to boot from CD for the first boot option.This would be in the Bios settings,it give you the key to hit to get into the bios during the brand name splash screen(if not it is usually "F2") Restart your computer with the disc in the drive and at the prompt "boot from CD hit any key" click any key to start then follow the prompts.Be sure and read each page carefully if you dont do it correctly you will have to start over again.This procedure is very time consuming and professional help is often needed if you have never done it before.You can do it but you have to read the pages carefully if you havent dont it before.During this procedure is where you will reformat and partition the drive and reload the Operating System.Afterwards you will need to get all available updates and reload any third party software.

I want to reformat PB MS2303


Packard Bell is a computer manufacturer, now owned by Acer. Restoring your computer will erase the hard drive and install a fresh copy of Microsoft Windows. This is beneficial if the Packard Bell is showing its age and running extremely slow or has been hit with an incurable virus infection. Before attempting to restore the system, be sure to back up any data you wish to save.

1.Insert the Windows Setup CD/DVD into the computer's optical drive. The disc will have been included with the Packard Bell computer.

2.Restart the computer with the disc inserted. A black screen will appear when the disc is detected, displaying "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD..." Press any key on the keyboard to launch the Windows installer. The "Install Windows" screen will appear.

3.Click "Next."

4.Select "I accept the license terms" and click "Next."

5.Click "Custom" when asked what type of installation you'd like. The other option is "Upgrade," but in order to restore your Packard Bell system to its factory settings, you must reformat the hard drive.

6.Click "Drive Options" when asked where to install Windows. Select the C: drive and click "Erase." Select the unallocated space after it has been erased, and click "Format." Format the space using the "NTFS" file system.

7.Click "Next" and Windows will begin reinstalling on the Packard Bell's hard drive. The system will reboot when finished and launch into your newly restored Packard Bell.
