Using Recovery CD's to Start Over!

***WARNING: ALL FILES WILL BE LOST WHEN PERFORMING THIS!!! PLEASE MAKE SURE ALL FILES ARE BACKED UP!!!***


1. If you have all of the Recovery Disks (Operating System Disk, Software Disk, Driver Disk) shipped with the system, you need to first put the Operating System Recovery disk in the CD or DVD ROM (the one that says the Windows Operating System on it).

2. Start the computer and you should see "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD...

NOTE:
If the Install Windows page does not appear and you are not asked to press a key to start (or "boot") from CD or DVD, you might have to specify that your computer use its CD or DVD drive as the startup device. This means that you need to set the CD or DVD drive to be the first startup device in the basic input/output system (BIOS). Occasionally, as with HP Pavilion laptops, you can press F9 or some other Function key to designate a temporary boot device. This key may different between systems.
Newer computers usually display a startup (or boot) menu. On the startup menu, select "BIOS setup," or "BIOS settings," or something similar.

Warning

Updating the BIOS is an advanced procedure, and if an error occurs, your computer could stop working. Be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions exactly.

Note
Procedures for updating the BIOS vary depending on the manufacturer. Check the information that came with your computer or go to the computer manufacturer's website. Each computer has its own startup (or boot) options and access to the BIOS setup. If your computer does not have a startup menu, look for a message that says "BIOS setup," "BIOS settings," or something similar, and then press the appropriate key when prompted to display the BIOS setup screen.
The BIOS setup screen appears. On the BIOS setup screen, select the option called "Boot order," or something similar. Select your CD or DVD drive as the first startup device. Press F10 to save and exit BIOS
Restart your computer, and then start Windows from the installation CD or DVD as previously described.

3. Depending on the type of Operating System you have, the next steps will be different. For Windows XP, a blue screen will come up and drivers will be loading to begin the installation process. For Windows Vista and Windows 7, when the Install Windows screen comes up follow all the prompts as per your needs. The installation, especially for Windows 7, is very straight forward.

4. A screen should come up now preparing the Windows Installation. Simply follow the prompts, making sure to wipe the previous windows installation completely before continuing with the current install.

5. When the installation is complete you should verify that all the drivers were loaded completely. For Windows XP go to Start>>Control Panel>>System>>Device Manager and make sure no yellow circles with exclamation marks are showing. For Windows Vista and 7 go to the Start menu (6c22571.gif )>>Control Panel>>Device Manager.

6. If so, you will have to go to your manufacturer website to download the missing drivers. Go to the support section and put in your express service code or model number, or use the auto-detect feature if it is available and it will tell you what you have available to download.
When in doubt: download and install everything. The worst that can happen is it will say it isn't compatible or already exists and won't install. Also ensure you run ALL windows updates, even optional ones. The only exception to this is with Windows 7 updates. A whole bunch of language packs are available which do not have to be installed, unless you need them! There should be approximately 34 of these language packs.

Hope this helps. I will include more specific information as I come across it.

Good Luck and as always, if you do not feel comfortable doing this yourself please consult a professional.

I have just down loaded open office.org.3.4.1 is it safe and why do i keep getting things popping up on my face book wall and a page telling me to download..ad.xtendmedia.com...will anyone please help


Office. org is safe. I've used it for years. It's not related to Facebook issue, I would suspect Facebook has malware, it's become quite a issue, with Facebook trying to make money. Do not download anything from a unknown site, including Facebook.

Taskmanager


If you have access to a clean computer with a burner, then download Hirens Boot Disc.
The download is only around 80-90 meg and can be burnt onto a cd or dvd.
Download HERE.
Burn that program to cd and put it into the infected PC. Start the computer up and boot from the CD instead of the hard drive.

There are anti virus utilities on there that run in Dos mode without ever loading anything from your hard drive.
