I want to formate my system how can i do it instruct me...and will my genune copy of windows be tutelly removed


First of all, no your windows operating system key would not be removed because your hardware is already register to your computer. Yes by formatting your computer, you will loose everything and every single files, including the o.s. If you want to format and You want to restore your computer to factory setting, you will need to make a restore/recovery disk provide in the acer management program. You will see a option for making a backup disk in the acer management software in the start menua via all programs. After making this disc, save all the files that you want like pic,music,video,doc to an external harddrive. Insert disc or simply leave disc, Turn of you computer, setup your bios to boot from cd/dvd-disc in the bios boot menu. (should see this option when starting up the first few second, maybe a F key or DEl key to get you into the bios menu or A key saying boot option) Set your boot prority to cd/dvd. The Acer recovery program will come on and follow direction. If you just want to format everything and not making a recovery/restore disk (which I would not recommend unless you bought another windows operating system disc). Then just click my computer and locate your harddrive, Right click, format, you should be good to go. You will loose everything.

I have a Lacie 320gb external harddrive which was connected to an eMac and is now connected to an Acer laptop. I've reformatted it as NTFS and it shows up in disk management as healthy but does not appear...


you need to give it a drive letter

A more reliable way to do this is via the computer management console

Start / Control Panel / Administrative Tools / Computer management / Disk Management.

Your drive should show up in here.

if it says Healthy and just above that gives the file system eg. NTFS or FAT32 etc it should be fine but may just need a drive letter.

If it does dot say any of those then right click on it and use the format option. Select how you want to format it (NTFS for XP is preffered)
and then tell it to do a FULL format. and also give it a drive letter !
It may take a while but I find it more reliable overall.

If it didn't have a drive letter then right click and use the Change Drive Letter and Paths option, then add a drive letter and use the one it offers.

I like to re-boot just to be sure windows sees it properly

Getting problem in formatting the IBM PC


check if the cable from the cd rom connected to your ibm pc if its ok , also check the master, slave configuration pins into the back of your cdrom. make sure that theres no conflict between the hard disk and the cdrom. Your cd rom may probably cannot be detected. make sure that it is working first. then install the hard disk. The hard disk must be in primary master and the cd rom must be in primary slave. then try booting it to your cd rom. also, try checking if your windows xp setup disk is bootable, it means that it can boot from cd rom. PM me if you have other experiences after doing what i adviced. Thank You.. heres my email. jmizpahadonai777@gmail.com
