Topic: Need a little advice...

    Unhappy Need a little advice...

    I'll spare you the details of my tale of woe. Let's just say it involves clicks and pops and strange computer behavior and unsuccessfully trying to restore a registry.

    But my question is this: If you wanted to wipe a C drive clean and reinstall windows XP and start fresh...what would be the best way to reformat that drive? Can I do from the BIOS? Some other way? (I have an external drive enclosure and another computer, so I can do something that way.)


    Thanks in advance.

    Just insert your Windows CD, and it will ask you if you want to create a new partition on your drive. Tell it "yes", and tell it to format the drive in the NTFS format. It will be clean as a whistle!
