Make sure there are no disks in either your 3.5 diskette drive (if you have one) or your cd rom drive. If there is a disk in either one take it out and reboot. If no disks are present or this does not solve the problem, go to your setup screen and see if the hard drive is recognized in there. If it is not than you may need to replace your hard drive. If it is recognized then you will have to setup the system to boot from the cd drive and re-install your Operating System. Good Luck!

I have compaq nx6310, i had issues with the os.once you touch a button it starts open other buttons and pages automatically. i tried restoring the system to earlier dates and the issue reduced. later on it...


Hi das4real! These are the things to consider.
  • Operating system disk - Try to test your Installation CD to other computer. If it doesn't work then you need to replace the disk
  • Optical Drive (CD/DVD Drive) - If Installation disk works then try to clean your Optical drive lens as it may be having a hard time reading the disk. Your Optical drive is working since you're able to format and able to start the installation. Cleaning the drive lens may do the trick.
  • Hard Drive - If Installation CD and Optical drive is clean. Then the last thing you need is to replace the Hard Drive. You Hard Drive might need replacement due to some bad sectors and the installation couldn't write anything on the drive that causes to freeze during installation.
I hope this helps you.

It is not formatting., please help me


hi

follow these instructions

Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Windows installation media (and product key)
  • Manufacturer software
  1. Ensure that the hard disk is installed properly in the laptop. The drive cannot be formatted before it is installed, or if it's not installed correctly.

  2. Gather the required software. The type of media will depend on the hardware in your laptop. Older computers without a CD-ROM drive, will require the use of the operating system floppy disks. Laptops that can run Windows XP require the installation CD and product key. Older versions of Windows also have disk-formatting capability in the installation process, and the installation media is either a CD or floppy disk.

  3. Place the installation disk or manufacturer software in the drive and then boot the computer. Early in the installation process, the Windows installer has a step that will detect any installed hard disks and allow for them to be formatted. The software from the disk manufacturer will also detect the hard disk and give you the option to format the drive.

  4. Determine which file system is to be used. Windows XP will either work on a NTFS file system or an older VFAT file system. Choose the desired file system when prompted.

  5. Decide whether the whole disk should be formatted or if the disk will be partitioned and each partition to be formatted separately. The Windows installer includes a menu-driven utility that will create hard disk partitions before formatting. If the hard disk is being formatted to replace an existing Windows installation, delete the existing partitions and re-create them.

  6. Format the hard disk with the Windows installer when prompted. The Windows installer will let you know when it is time to format the disk and ask for confirmation.

this should help you.

FORTMATTING A NEW DRIVE


FORMATTING OR PARTITIONING A HARD DRIVE.

Formatting and partitioning a Hard drive will wipe out any and all information. Much like erasing recording tape.
Please be careful when attempting this procedure.
Partitioning a drive usually happens before the formatting process. Any drive can have up to 4 partitions.
Only one partition can be designated as active (the boot partition) one of the 4 partitions can be designated as an extended DOS partition.
When installing an Operation system ie: Windows (OS) The OS will bring you through this process.
However, on the other hand if you have an additional drive installed and you want your PC to see it, depending on what Operating system you have, you must navigate to the "Disk Manager" via the computer manager in the controlsettings of the OS. to see if the drive is recognized by the OS.
If it is, Right click on the drive and request a partitioning of that drive. Once the partition is complete, then request to format. this will configure the drive for the file format ie FAT or NTFS. In most cases NTFS is the format you would select. Additionally, you'll be requested as to the type of drive Logical or extended.
What you'll be doing with the system depends on how you Hard drive (HDD) will be partitioned out.
Remember the boot or active partition is where your OS will be and will be seen first after the PC boots (starts) up.
If you are using the system for home use, one partition is all you'll need. Lastly, you don't need 4 partitions on your PC unless you plan to use separate drives for say... backups, or to consolidate files. A lot of info I know... but if you go with one partition that maybe all you need.
I can't fix this for you, but if I helped you get it fixed, please rate it as a fixya not a helpful rating. These ratings let me be allowed to help you and others in the future. If you need more help, feel free to keep asking, but keep the original information so I can see it.
