If you have recovery cd with your HP laptop just recover, coz HP laptop has recovery file in your hard disk to to recover to factory default. if no use bootable os like XP, VISTA and WIN 7are bootable just setup your bios setting, go to boot and setup your cd rom as your first boot so that it will automatically boot to your OS on the cd. and follow the rest of the instruction to setup.

How to format drive so to install xp on 5515


If you are Windows XP bootable CD with u,

first u restart ur computer and change the boot priority in the BIOS setup . Then insert the bootable cd and restart computer.

When some message comes in the screen, regarding bootable cd, press any key for installation,

It will take some time to copy installation files, then configure computer hard disk.

Then u have to agree the continuation of installation by pressing F8.
It will ask u either to repair or install Windows
press appropriate keys for that.
It will show the disk partitions and lets u with options of creating ,deleting paritions .
if u want a partition, then select any large partition and press C and type the amount of memory(in MegaBytes) u want for the partition
After finishing creating partitions,
select any partition and press enter for Windows installation in that partition. and select "format and install" option . It will format that partition and restarts . there is nothing to do more .
After restarting , it takes about 40min to install(times inversly proportional to the processor configuration), it asks for the serial /product key fo ur windows bootable cd, and some general settings about time,time zone,username,passwords etc.
After that , Windows would get completely installed.
Then insert ur motherboard CD for installing driver for (audio,graphics,LAN etc)

Then ur system is ready with Windows.
Ask me if u have any difficulty while installing...

Operating system corrupted


Hello,
If you had bought your OS, then you would probably be having the bootable OS CD with you.
It is very simple to format your system.
Follow these steps,
1. Restart your system and go to setup by clicking the F2 key.
2. In the setup, go to boot sequence and place BOOT FROM CD at the top of the list. save changes and exit from setup.
3. Now insert the OS CD in your drive and restart the system. The system will now start from the CD.
4. This will take you to the XP setup from where you would be asked to partition the harddisk for formating the OS.
5. follow the steps given by the setup and you have your new formatted OS.
Good luck!

Reformatting acer 8730


To format the pc you have to use the Bootable OS cd ( 98 0r Xp )
If you are using 98 then you have to insert the 98 bootable cd into the CD drive set the boot sequence in the BIOS to boot from CD optionand restart the pc after restarting you have to identify the cd-drive letter which also appears at the command prompt here you have to browse the cd using dir/p command and then change to win98 directory using cd win98 here at the prompt(>) type format C: if C is the drive letter of the Harddisk
(2)If you want to format Using XP which is much easier than the previou procedure insert the XP cd and restart the system continue with the installation procedure of xp at one stage it will ask for to select the drive where you want install the xp select the drive and that particular drive will be automatically formated after format it will restart at that time you can remove the cd and exit the installation
If you want to completly delete all the harddisk partition and create new partitions you can do that using the Disk manager cd( PC can be formated and create new partition using Bootable XP also)
I am sorry if these procedures are to much

SIR I HAVE UNABLE TO ENTER IN BIOS SETUP B'C0Z WHEN I PRES F2 , F10 AND DEL TAB IT IS NOT GOING INTO BIOS SETUP AND THERE IS AN ERROR OF HDD SELF TEST PLEASE GIVE ME A REPLY WHAT CAN I DO FOR ENTER IN BIOS...


You may use a CD installer (i.e. Windows XP driver). Most CDs are bootable. You have to insert the CD and then restart the computer.

Once the computer restarted, it will recognize first the bootable CD and you will be prompted if you'd like to boot using the CD.

NOTE: Don't hit anything on your keyboard so that the computer will boot using the CD and you may now format your hard drive and install a new operating system.
