It is possible to perform the Windows install yourself, however you would need access to your orginal windows disk and licence key. All you do is boot the laptop with your disk interted into the DVD drive. It will then tell you to press any key to install windows.Do a full format of NTFS and when asked to create a primary boot partition set this to the maximum size allowed. This will ensure that you use your whole disk. Therefore have a single C: drive and your information contained within. Just follow the steps and do not press any key when prompted to do so after the format of the hard drive as this will start you right back at the begining again.

Thumbs up!

Everytime I turn my computer on it will freeze


You have a corrupted registry, try rebooting and depressing the F8 key to access safe mode..you will see a black and white screen with boot choices.

Choose "best last boot config" reboot and hope for the best.

If still no go reload windows with the disk and choose option "Reload windows WITHOUT FORMAT". It will replace windows and retain all you saved files. HOWEVER, you will need to reload all other programs, eg Office suite, games etc

EVERYTIME I TRY TO TURN MY WIRELESS ASSISTANT ON, MY COMPUTER FREEZES. EVERYTIME I TRY TO LOAD MY INTERNET EXPLORER, MY YAHOO PAGE WON'T LOAD WHAT CAN I DO?


Make sure Wireless Zero Config is running.
Try to uninstall the wireless assitant software that came with the laptop (NOT THE WIRELESS CARD DRIVERS!!) and use the built in windows wireless assistant. (Usuelly does the job untill you deside someday to format your computer.)

I cant get my computer to fully boot up


This might happen if you install McAfee with applications running, or not restarting Windows, etc. I am not sure why you couldn't boot in Safemode, booting in safemode is exactly what you need to do to uninstall McAfee.

Laptop wont load windows after freezing up and turning off


Have a Linux-savvy friend try booting a Live-Linux CD on your computer. If everything works,
then it isn't a hardware problem, just a virus "infection." In that case you could fix your computer by doing a fresh Windows install.
