Having problems with your Acer PC Laptops ?

Acer extensa 4630z will not boot up. System restore will not work. how can I reformat hard drive?


Answers :

If you want to go down the route of reinstalling windows, you will need the windows disk which came with the laptop.

Insert the Windows CD that came with your PC, and reboot your\015\012system. If you didn't receive a Windows disc with your machine, the\015\012files you need are sitting in a hidden partition on your hard drive. To\015\012access them, press the keys indicated on your screen when you reboot,\015\012but before Windows loads.

If it gives you the option to boot from the CD, make sure to do this.

Once you have got to this stage you follow the steps through. Delete all the partitions and the format the hard drive. You will then be able to do a clean install of windows.

Best of luck
