Turn on your pc and put in xp cd. Now restart and when screen turns black keep on tapping key F12. This will ether say choose your boot device which would be your cd/dvd drive or it will say press any key to boor from a cd and if so when it shows this just press space bar but make sure you do it before it goes away because you will have to repeat it. Once this is done just follow these steps:

Only thing that needs to be done different if you have had opearting system installed on this is on step C choose option delete partition(just press letter D) and this will bring you to another screen not in this walk through. On that screen just press letter L and then enter to start install. Once this is done it will move you to figure D. You might not have all the options but just choose ether quick ntfs(this is pretty fast) or just choose plain ntfs (this takes time but if there are any bad sectors on hard drive it will try to repair them) Once you choose this just sit back and watch it do the magic. Somewhere around 32 minutes left of setup it will ask for your input. Just follow the prompts and it is walk in the park from here on. Hope this helps.

Need to format laptop computer as I am suspecting a virus attack. I am unable to open files, and does not show drives.


You can reformat your computer by using your recovery discs. Please keep in mind that if you reformat your computer you will be unable to recover any of your files that are currently on it. If you are able to, backup everything you can. You can use an external harddrive or a flash drive to get files off if you boot from a Linux LiveCD if you have access to a working computer with a CD burner and a CD. Post back if you need any help with that.

Hi there !!

Method 1: Perform a clean install of Windows XP loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); A clean installation consists of removing all data from your hard disk by repartitioning and reformatting your hard disk and reinstalling the operating system and programs to an empty (clean) hard disk. For more information about important things to consider before you partition and format you hard disk and how to partition and format your hard disk by using the Windows XP Setup program, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 313348 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/313348/ ) How to partition and format a hard disk in Windows XP To perform a clean installation of Windows XP, follow these steps:
  1. Back up all important information before you perform a clean installation of Windows XP. Save the backup to an external location, such as a CD or external hard disk.
  2. Start your computer from the Windows XP CD. To do this, insert the Windows XP CD into your CD drive or DVD drive, and then restart your computer.

    Note To boot from your Windows XP CD, the BIOS settings on your computer must be configured to do this.
  3. When you see the "Press any key to boot from CD" message, press any key to start the computer from the Windows XP CD.
  4. At the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER to start Windows XP Setup.
  5. Read the Microsoft Software License Terms, and then press F8.
  6. Follow the instructions on the screen to select and format a partition where you want to install Windows XP.
  7. Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the Windows XP Setup.
If you have successfully installed Windows XP, you are finished. If these steps did not help you install Windows XP, go to the "Next Steps" section.

Try these steps & hopefully you will be able to format the Harddrive.

Reboot whole computer


Why do you want to restore your computer to its original state? Did you get infected with a virus, or malware , or a rootkit that you believe has compromised the integrity of your system?
If you revert back to the condition your system was in in 2004, you will have to spend hours if not days online downloading years of updates to your os, updating drivers, and reinstalling all your applications and programs, not to mention backing up and re-organizing all your documents and folders.
Please consult the Gateway site about what this operation will do to your system by reading their FAQ on recovery by clicking here
If you do need to reformat and reinstall, there are other ways to do this that might prove easier in the long run, like making an XP sp3 slipstream installation CD.
On the other hand, if you are simply experiencing a slow down of your system and find your applications unresponsive, there are other means of correcting your present configuration that might work instead of doing a recovery install.
Please have a look at this article, including the links at the end.
It may help you to make up your mind...
If you do go with the reformat, even in the wake of a virus, please make backups of your system and documents. There's stuff you might find you need later on....

Virus


Don't reformat it just yet. Tell us what OS you are using, and I can try to help.
I will assume you are using WIndows XP or Vista - what you can do, assuming you have kept your PC up-to-date, is try to run the inbuilt Microsoft anti-malware program.
Click Start, Run, type MRT and press Enter or click OK.
You should get the February 2009 version of the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool.
Do a quick scan and see what comes up. If anything is found, reboot and repeat the process doing a full scan (can take several hours).
That should fix and remove the most common virus infections. Let me know how you get on.

If you still need to reformat, you need to use the Dell recovery CDs that came with your laptop. These were a blue recovery/drivers CD and a purple CD for Windows XP sp1 or a green CD for Windows XP sp2. Not sure about other versions of Windows. There is no magic button to reformat with Dell laptops.
