How to format a compaq


Formatting is used to erase yourhard drive. Many times, this is used to clean a hard drive after a virus or toperform a completely clean installation of a new operating system. A Compaqlaptop can be easily formatted, but formatting will only solve system problems,not hardware problems. The process should only be used to solve problems as alast resort, since it will erase all of your data.
1. Back up all data before performingthe format (if possible).2. Insertthe operating system disk and restart your computer and wait until prompt fromthe system.3. Strikeany key when prompted to begin running the disk.4.Choose between reinstalling yoursoftware or repairing. Reinstalling will allow you to format and thenreinstall. Repairing will bring you to a DOS menu. You will need to use FDiskwith each individual drive letter on your hard drive. Use this option if youhave a multiple partitions on your drive and only need to format a singlepartition.5.Choose "Full NTFS" formatif you choose to reinstall the operating system.Remember:Most users will only need to use thereinstallation option. This option is perfect for users with one partition orthose reinstalling or upgrading their operating system.
Never format your Compaq laptopwhile on battery power. If the battery dies during the format, you could ruinyour hard drive.Hope this helps, pleaselet me know if you need further assistance.Please don't forget to rateand comment if my solution was helpful, thanks!

I cant format the hard drive


Hi golkimo...
Sometimes you cannot format the hard drive that is in the computer...I don't know why.
But what I do is put the hard drive in an external hard drive holder and plug it into another guest computer and it will then let you format the hard drive from the guest computer.
Then reinstall back into your computer and reinstall the operating system.

Can I format the harddrive on my dell inspiron 1464 and reinstallation win 7 with the DVD... If Yes how can format the harddrive from at the command prompt. please help thanks.


Hi
To set you computer back to factory fresh settings you will need to format the hard drive and reinstall the operating system and the drivers.
You will need your NEW Operating System disc or you will need to have the CD's that either you made when you got your computer or if your lucky you got the CD's that the factory furnished with the computer at the time you bought it.
If you do not have those CDs/DVDs then go the website of the computer manufacturer and search the website for "Recovery Discs", if they are not available
there you might locate them on Ebay.
1.Format the hard drive:
You do this by double left clicking on "My Computer",then double left click the main drive (normally C drive).
When the window pops open, you will choose "Format"
Keep in mind that once you format your hard drive you will loose all your files,programs,pictures,etc that you installed since the computer was new.
So make your back up on a portable hard drive,thumb drive,etc.
2. Once the formatting of the hard drive is complete you will need to reinstall the operating system along with the drivers.
Install the first disc and start the program.
That will bring your computer back to factory new condition as far as operating is concerned.

Hi andygrew90...

To do a complete system restore, you will need to format the hard drive and reinstall the operating system with the drivers.
To do that you will:
1...Double left click on "My Computer"
2...When the pop open window opens, Go to your main drive normally this is "C" drive and double left click on it.
3...When the window opens you will click on "Format"
After you format your hard drive then you will reinstall the operating system and driver with the discs that you made when you first got your netbook (unless your lucky and got the disc's with the computer)
This will bring your computer back to the original condition when it was new.

My daughter has a Samsung N150 Netbook (N450). She has only had it 4 months and now when she switches it on the screen lights up but that is it. No windows logo.....nothing. Does anyone have any ideas...


once it starts up, press on F8, and then select Safe mode or last known good configuration. If not, you may need to reinstall the operating system. Just reinstall over the current one so you can get your files. Don't format.
