Having problems with your NEC Versa VX Notebook ?

I need to reformat my NEC e3100 because im experiencing all kinds of internet issues and software issues where my computer doesnt even recognise any programs installed. how do i go about resetting it. i push F12 and nothing happens...


Answers :

To reformat usually you either use a windows install disc and reinstall windows, or you use a boot disk and a format utility, depending on the windows version. There are also format discs such as UBD that also work. When you format your drive, you lose all the information on it. You also will need a windows disc and serial number to install after a format.

The easier way to get your computer working is to simply use your windows disc to re-install windows. Before doing that it is a good idea to run several different virus and spyware scanners as well as a registry cleaner. RegScrubXP is a good one to use. When windows is running, simply browse to your windows disc and run setup.exe, that will reinstall windows over top the copy you have and replace any damaged or missing files. Then reinstall all your programs and it should all work. Programs can be re-installed over top even if they already are installed, basically all that happens is the missing files are replaced. Re-installing does not give you two coies of the same program - it just makes the copy that is already there work again.
Windows 2000 and XP have a feature for repairing also, in the start/run menu, type sfc /scannow and put your windows CD in, it will then check all files and replace any damaged or missing ones.
You need to bootup to your OS installation cd like windows and start a fresh installation.

You need to setup from your bios settings to bootup to CD. Upon bootup, press del key. Set the system bootup to recognize the cd drive first. Save and restart.

The next time it boots, it will look for the cd and will ask you to boot to cd. Then new installation will took place.
