This is because the old formating would ask for a floppy drive, i assume that this is the only drive you have fitted, so you have to use the windows cd to format and instal, if you do not know how to use the old format 'C' type formating in DOS

HDD upgrade to extensa 6601 Wlmi.


The BIOS determine the maximum size hard drive that can be installed in the laptop. Put a smaller hard drive in the laptop say 120Gb hard drive, you will lose approx 10% in the formatting process.
Use the 180GB in another laptop or put it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as a portable external hard drive.

Icant see my usb flash drive in my computer


You can try this out:
After powering up your system, and you have plugged the flash drive, then Right-Click on my computer icon, select manage, then go to Disk Management Option.
On the Disk management option Page you should see ALL the drives installed on your system, including the hidden ones, so what you will just do is, try and locate the one representing your flash drive, and right click on it. then select "Change Drive letter and Paths", and give the drive any new, unique letter (i.e alphabet) different from the ones already on your system, and click on OK.
This should make your Flash Drive to be detected automatically.
Hope this helps you out.
Goodluck!

Hard drive is not recognize by the computer


Both XP and Vista have this feature that requires that new installs of hardware be certified by Microsoft within anywhere from 30 to 60 days from installation.

Run an install (not a clean install which will wipe your data, mind you, but an install accomplished by installation disks, where you will be asked which kind of install you wish to accomplish, and you will be asked to register your software using your product key)


If you need additional information, I will be more than happy to assist you.

Re-installing operating system


If you boot to the CD (on boot with the CD in the drive you should get a screen with the option to boot to the CD, if your boot order in your BIOS is set to CD ROM before Hard Drive), you should (after loading files for a while) get to a screen that will allow you to select the drive/partition to install to. If trying to install from within the Windows environment it won't happen.
