    Hi Latoof thanks for your help so far. I hope I will give it a try this weekend.

    It seems that you know a bit about computers, so i hope you don't mind if i ask you something else as well. At some point last week the computer couldn't start up. It seems there was a problem with the power supply of the hard drive and since then, although i can switch it on, it is rather slow. Do you think by formating i may solve the problem?

    I formated my computer in the weekend. So far everything seems to work a bit better! The only thing that I didn't manage to do is to partition my hard drive. Can I do it now or is it too late?

    Thanks for your assistance.

Assuming you want to go back to FACTORY settings, you need to change BIOS settings so PC boots from CD, INstall recovery disk 1 and boot from it and follow instructions. It "MAY" give you an option to back up data but donot rely on this and back up any data you want BEFORE you start

post back any further questions and/or results

    if the HD would not start up themm perhaps it is failing... they dont last forever. However it may be due to a bad file.

    have you tried to defragment the drive? Also checking the disk for errors too?

    defrag = open my computer, right click on the C drive, properties, tools. you have degrag and check. run degfrag first then check for errors and tick fix error file system and recover bad sectors

    HIH and please post back how you go

    you can partition your drive now if you want but you need to use a specific program now the OS is loaded. I recommend paragon Partition Manager but it is not free. The 30 day trial may be functional for what you want/need but I dont know for sure.

    Some free programs HERE I cannot vouch for any though as I have not used them so be cautious in what you use and do.

I have lost my recovery cd for Siemens AMILO Pr, how can i instal windows XP SP2 again on my system as it says there is no hard disk connected. Plz help me

If You're Getting That Message... Then It's Not Recognising The Physical Hardware... The Drive Itself...

Pull Hard Drive Out And Reinsert It... Then Go Into Your BIOS Setup... Ensure That Your Hard Drive Shows Up In There....If Not, Your Hard Drive Most Likely Is Faulty and Will Need Replacing..

You Will Still Need Either A Recovery CD Or Just An OS Cd..(XP/Vista etc..)
