Question about Computers & Internet
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.
