Copy to a CD-R whatever you no longer need now and delete them from the harddrive. Then install and run CCleaner

How do i foremat a wd1600avbs hardrive western


It depends on the OS you use on your computer.

On most versions of Windows, right-click on "Computer" (or equivalent, terms vary from one version of windows to another), then "Manage".
In the left panel of the new window, click on "Disk management" (under "storage").
Then, in the right panel, graphic representation of the disks, right-click on the space you want to format, there you'll find the "format" function.

EMachines Recovery Discs


Hi Sandysue, As I understand your problem, 1. The error could be caused by: memory, video, hardrive or drivers; 2. Windows by asking you to run CHKDSK /F has detected a possible problem with your harddrive; 3. It is possible that the reason you cannot go to DOS mode is because your harddrive is formatted in NTFS and not FAT332. There are a couple of ways on how to go about this but all would require that you have access to second PC: 1. Run a third party software (BartPE) that you will have to boot from your CD Drive or USB and run a disk checking utility; 2. Remove your hardrive and install it as a secondary master in the 2nd PC and run chkdsk or scandisk; 3. Remove your hardrive and install it in an external HD enclosure and connect using USB to the 2nd PC and run chkdsk or scandisk; 4. Remove your hardrive and install it either USB or as secondary master to the 2nd PC. Copy all your important files to the 2nd PC, and repartition/reformat. Reinstall to the eMachine and reinstall Windows. There is a possibility that even if you were able to run CHKDSK or Scandisk eventually your best bet would still be #4. If you have gained access to the inside of your eMachine PC, it would also be a good idea to remove/reinsert any cards and the memory stick(s). A little housekeeping would also be nice. I hope that this be of some help and pls post again how things turn up or if you need further information. Goodluck and kind regards.

Reinstalled windows xp on a split partition resulting memory prob


You should just be able to boot off the Windows XP cd and perform what is called a clean installation. This will format the drive and give you access to all 160 gigs of drive space.  Seems like you've already lost all your data, but that's where to go.
