    i wouldn't suggest doing it yourself, unless you are 100 percent comfortable with your pc...and setting everything up.

    If you have a windows 2000/xp cd you can just pop the cd in and it will ask you if you would like to format before you install.

    If you just wanted to format a drive.....go to the command prompt and type 'format c:' (c: can be replaced with whatever the drive letter is.)

    She's on MSN right now so she's on the net, but the question is if she formatted or not?

    Hey peeps... sorry, I didn't reply... we were just having a conversation about it, and I remembered about this post.
    Ok... Q & Boots... I didn't have much luck with the cmos, I don't know how to get into it, I've tried a few more passwords, but nada... zippo... zilchi.... about the jumper... wanna run me thru it one more time :wink: :D

    Hondasport, Dural, Lmac.... :( ... it won't except a disk, I wish it was that easy... I do feel comfortable enough to do it myself, I always end up doin OK(hehe) but we've tried numerous disks and nada worked.

    MSN+Tim PC=ME :cry:
