Hi there.

To format you will need:
Operating Systems (OS) CD/DVD

Steps:
1) Enter the BIOS when the laptop boots by pressing the Delete key repeatedly.
2) Once the BIOS is open locate the boot disk priority and set prioity 1 to the CD/DVD drive, set priority 2 to the laptop's hard drive.
3) Save changes to the BIOS and exit. The system should now reboot.
4) Insert your OS CD/DVD.
5) Press Enter when the system asks you if you want to boot from the CD/DVD.
6) The OS setup should now start, the first thing it will ask you to do is format your hard drive.
7) After you drive is formatted you can either continue with the setup and install a fresh copy of the OS or you can exit leaving the main drive clean.

Hi I want to format my laptop pavilion dv6 just C drive without losing my data in other drives using backup drive? thank's


You cannot format c drive while windows is running. If your operating system is in c drive then you need an operating system disk to reinstall and while doing this you will be asked to format your c drive If you want to format c drive without loosing data then simply transfer your data to another drive on your computer and use operating system disk to bot your computer Wait for the setup files to load and choose fresh installation option You will be asked to choose the drive to install OS and you can select c drive Then you will be available with an option to format c drive and install OS It will not effect other drives on e computer and your data is safe After installation of OS you can browse through other drives to retrieve your data. Hope this helps or you can ask for clarification if you need Thanks

Need help in formatting or recovery the os.... can anyone help me on it


If you have the original OS disks, you can boot to the CD drive and install a fresh copy of Windows XP. One of the steps will ask you if you want to keep the existing Operating system. If you decline and install the OS the next step will ask if you want to format using NTFS. This step will format the drive and then reinstall the OS.

I hope this is what you were looking for. Thanks for using FixYa.

Gives me bleu screen when I?m installing the os and now it wont even start it turns on but the the screen is black


hi

*first to do will be to install a different ver. of windows
or any other os....
it should solve the problem...


*the other way is kinda techy way...
open the CABINET cover and carefully remove the CMOS battery from the motherboard...
after a minute or so replace it....
it will reset the BIOS to its defaults....

*if none works using a bootable disk try to back up all the data in your HD
then format the entire HD and install a fresh copy of os


IF this solves your prob, please do a vote for me

Not boot from factory CD -where is CMOS battery?


Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Based on your post/description:
  • Toshiba Satellite 1415-S173;
  • new HDD;
  • would install WinXP.
Your concerns are:
  • media/cable fault;
  • CMOS battery;
  • laptop battery.
  • will not complete format;
  • will not install OS (WinXP).
Proposed course of action and other ideas:
  1. double check the new HDD, verify that the pins are not bent and are seated correctly. If all else fails, return the new HDD and have it replaced;
  2. try partitioning/formatting the new HDD in another PC using a 2.5 IDE to USB external adapter;
  3. clean the lens of the DVD/CD ROM drive;
  4. remove the dead laptop battery and use only the AC power when installing;
  5. most current laptops do not use a CMOS battery;
  6. if you want to revert CMOS/BIOS settings to default, it could be done by pressing on ESC or F1 or as indicated in the display (depends on the version) and set all possible settings to default. Verify that it is set to boot from the CD drive.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
