I have a laptop here (compaq presario 900) im trying to format it and reinstall winXp but it simply will not let me format. Ive tried to a few things but it keeps saying unable to format or something like that. Ive never had a problem like this, ususlly it just goes on and formats when I tell it to. I inserted the Xppro cd and it booted from the disk, I went throught a few steps then selected to delete/format. and it wont let me. any ideas. this is my first expericance doing a laptop but ive done many deck tops. is it just a fuck up cuz its a laptop ? (I cant see that beeing a prob but im not sure) any suggestions/ ideas ?
