XP is a windows based operating system. XP is client OS which file format is Fat32 and NTFS.Some time for user fault, unauthorised operation, improper shutdown, viruses or any other cause may corrupt this file system and it may crash your windows also. Formatting and reloading of windows can solve your problem easily. But maybe there formatting is not possible for important data or for product key. So there repair of OS is only way to recover.
I have facing almost the same problem once. There customer have a confidential file in his system's desktop. Desktop belongs in C: drive where the OS resides. First I tried to recover the data but nothing is possible there. Then I started to repair the Widows. I insert the XP CD in DVD-Rom drive boot from it. Start the windows setup after loading files it ask for a repair (R key) I have ignore it by pressing Enter then the license agreement screen appeared. Then the OS instruct to press F8 to agree with the license and continue setup. After pressing F8 it will find the previous version of OS, if setup found any previous version then it will give you option to repair the OS again. But that day I don't get this option. It shows total disk space of C: drive have remain free space. So that there was not any file to recover the OS.
Then I go to boot the system again but formatting is not possible so after loading files at the first while the first repairing option appeared I have accept this repairing option. This option is from dos repairing option. After pressing "R" while appear the dos screen. Then press Enter to continue. Then I run the command "chkdsk" in C: drive to check the disk. After complete the disk checking and fixing the error I reboot the system again. After that I have Boot the system and after completing the whole process I choose the second repairing option. Then I got the previous version of OS and start to repair the previous OS. It now just loads the file and get started XP after booting. I got success to repair the OS and recover the data. So it is a secure and easy process of recovery.
Sorry to inform you that there is no full version of windows XP which is downloadable, because all the OS products of Microsoft are need a license so you need to buy a license windows XP OS, remember that their is no piracy policy.
I) if i understand ur problem you must have forgotten your password, in such case go into safe mode by pressing F8 button continuously when you start system and from there go to user accounts and delete that account or ur account and create account and do remember ur password and all this possible incase ur OS is Windows XP and is not possible in case of Vista, ultimately incase of Vista you have reload Vista or Format Vista or load the OS Freshly...(you can recover forgotten passwrod in Vista)
ii) otherwise try installing or reloading new OS or load the OS Freshly.....
Many Verbatim hard drive models with a FireWire interface come “Mac formatted” – pre-formatted for immediate use with Apple Macintosh computers running Mac OS. They are formatted as HFS+, the preferred format when using the drive exclusively with Mac OS computers. Note: A Mac-formatted drive will not mount on a Windows PC. If you plan to use a Mac-formatted hard drive only with computers running Mac OS, you can leave it formatted as it comes from the factory. However, if you plan to use your hard drive with computers running Windows, or with both Mac OS and Windows computers, you should reformat your Verbatim hard drive before saving data to it. Generally, for use with both Mac OS and Windows you should format to FAT32, and for use strictly with Windows you should format to NTFS. More information about these two format types is given below. FAT32FAT32 is compatible with the following Windows operating systems: Windows 98, Windows 98 SE, Windows Me, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista. FAT32 can also be read by Apple Macintosh computers running Mac OS. Limitations: Maximum file size is limited to 4TB. Furthermore, using the formatting tools included with Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Vista users will not be able to create partition sizes larger than 32GB (though they can access these larger partitions). This limitation does not apply to other supported operating systems. Furthermore, Verbatim provides a FAT32 format utility (see further below for download instructions) that eliminates the 32GB partition limitation. FAT32 is a good choice if you’ll be using your Verbatim hard drive with older computers running Windows 98, Windows 98 SE, or Windows Me, or if you’ll be using it with both Windows and Mac OS computers. NTFSNTFS is compatible with the following Windows operating systems: Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Vista. NTFS usually results in higher performance than FAT32, and will permit users to create partition sizes larger than 32GB, and file sizes larger than 4TB. Limitations: NTFS is not compatible with Windows 98, Windows 98 SE, Windows Me, or Apple Macintosh computers running Mac OS. NTFS is a good choice if you will be using your Verbatim hard drive only with one or more computers running Windows XP, Windows 2000 or Windows Vista. This is also a good choice if you plan to store files larger than 4TB, such as digital video files.
When u had purchased ur laptop probably you would have got the OS dvd. If not, then it is definate that you must have been provided assistance for making a recovery disc from their own feasible partition.
And If you have had not made the backup DVD then you must be trying to go to ur dealer and convey ur problem, i think probably they will provide you OS Backup.
Secondly while formatting ur laptop, you must have had aware of not to format the partition unless you made all important data from the partition you are going to format.
Once you formatted the drive you wont be able to recover ur data.
From now beware of above mentioned thing while formatting ur HD drive(s) partition.
