How do i factory reset. My dell latitude e6430?


You can't really factory reset a computer. You could try Windows System Restore. If you have Windows 7, then your computer has probably been make "restore points" that will let you go back to the state of the system on that date. Maybe there's a restore point close to your purchase date....

Want to go thermonuclear?
  1. Back up all your files. I'd make 2 backups.
  2. Make sure you have all the CDs that Dell sent you with Windows and drivers. If you didn't get those disks with your computer, call Dell and tell them you need them; they should ship them for free. (It seems like Dell decided a couple of years ago that almost no one was using those disks, so they stopped sending them out with new computers.)
OK, here comes the thermonuclear part. You are about to erase *everything* on your hard disk: Windows gone, programs gone, files gone. You will have to reinstall Windows and your programs, and restore your files from backup.

These instructions are for Windows 7, but should be close for other versions.

To install Windows 7 using the Custom option and formatting the hard disk

To format your hard disk during Windows 7 installation, you'll need to start, or boot, your computer using the Windows 7 installation disc or USB flash drive.
  1. Turn on your computer so that Windows starts normally, insert the Windows 7 installation disc or USB flash drive, and then shut down your computer.
  2. Restart your computer.
  3. Press any key when prompted, and then follow the instructions that appear.
  4. On the Install Windows page, enter your language and other preferences, and then click Next. If the Install Windows page doesn't appear, and you're not asked to press any key, you might need to change some system settings. To learn how to do this, see Start your computer from a Windows 7 installation disc or USB flash drive.
  5. On the Please read the license terms page, if you accept the license terms, click I accept the license terms, and then click Next.
  6. On the Which type of installation do you want? page, click Custom.
  7. On the Where do you want to install Windows? page, click Drive options (advanced).
  8. Click the partition that you want to change, click the formatting option you want to perform, and then follow the instructions.
  9. When you've finished formatting, click Next.
  10. Follow the instructions to finish installing Windows 7, which include naming your computer and setting up an initial user account.
Now you have a spanking clean computer.

It is not formatting., please help me


hi

follow these instructions

Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Windows installation media (and product key)
  • Manufacturer software
  1. Ensure that the hard disk is installed properly in the laptop. The drive cannot be formatted before it is installed, or if it's not installed correctly.

  2. Gather the required software. The type of media will depend on the hardware in your laptop. Older computers without a CD-ROM drive, will require the use of the operating system floppy disks. Laptops that can run Windows XP require the installation CD and product key. Older versions of Windows also have disk-formatting capability in the installation process, and the installation media is either a CD or floppy disk.

  3. Place the installation disk or manufacturer software in the drive and then boot the computer. Early in the installation process, the Windows installer has a step that will detect any installed hard disks and allow for them to be formatted. The software from the disk manufacturer will also detect the hard disk and give you the option to format the drive.

  4. Determine which file system is to be used. Windows XP will either work on a NTFS file system or an older VFAT file system. Choose the desired file system when prompted.

  5. Decide whether the whole disk should be formatted or if the disk will be partitioned and each partition to be formatted separately. The Windows installer includes a menu-driven utility that will create hard disk partitions before formatting. If the hard disk is being formatted to replace an existing Windows installation, delete the existing partitions and re-create them.

  6. Format the hard disk with the Windows installer when prompted. The Windows installer will let you know when it is time to format the disk and ask for confirmation.

this should help you.

I want to format my system please tell me how we do it


Formating the disk deletes EVERYTHING on that disk partition and sets it up for the installation of an operating system (XP, VISTA, LINUX etc).
If that is what you want, you will need your operating system disk. It will have the option to delete the current partition and install the "new" system. When you delete the partition, again, all the information on that partition is deleted.
Follow the instructions on your recovery disk and it will lead you thru these steps.
If you need more, details, let me know where your having a problem. There are more detail instructions at: http://www.ehow.com/how_6026_format-hard-drive.html

I am trying to restore windows xp on my pc but when i went through the process of formatting the hard drive now windows will not install. Everytime it tries to install I get corrupted files. What am I...


To find if the problem is with the XP disk or the disk unit boot from a Linux Live-CD like http://www.pclinuxos.com/   
If you can boot and use without a problem the Linux disk then try using a different XP disk, the one you have now appears to be scratched or faded.

I have got a 2gb scan disk memory card i cant access it or format


Hello Friend,
Here is a method to try:

  1. Backup all data from your hard drive to another hard drive or CDs or DVDs.
  2. Turn off your computer.
  3. Insert the USB drive to a USB port.
  4. Turn on your computer.
  5. Hit the F8 key when prompted to get to your system bios. Some computers required the Delete key or F2 instead of F8. There should be a note on the screen that specifies the key.
  6. Navigate your bios (usually using your cursor keys) to boot from CD drive first. Save and exit.
  7. Insert your operating system disc aka Operating System Restore disc. Your computer should restart. If not, restart it yourself.
  8. Follow the instructions for installing your operating system. When the option to select which drives to format comes, you should be able to see your USB disk in the list.
  9. Format the disk with FAT32 for Win98 or previous. Format with NTFS for anything after e.g. NT, 2000, XP etc.
  10. Depending on your options, you may be able to opt out of the operating system install at this point. If it was running well beforehand and you can, leave your other drives alone and quit the re-installation.
  11. Reset the computer to boot from the disc drive the operating system is on instead of the CD drive as before. You should have your working flash drive detecting and usable now in windows.
  12. If you didn't get the option to opt out of the re-installation, continue to follow the instructions onscreen and complete the re-installation, formatting whatever drives are required. Note: Do not try to install your operating system onto your USB disk drive. Also be cautious when formatting to keep in mind all data could be lost.
Best Regards,
