Hi there,

Does anyone have a link to a tried and tested reformatting a Windows 2000 machine guide?

My pc is currently running Win2K and I want to reformat my hard drive and then reinstall Windows 2000 back on it.

I still have the Win2K CD, but i don't have a bootup floppy (not sure if needed?!).

Thanks guys
 

A:Step-by-step guide to reformatting with Windows 2000

Not real difficult.
Make sure you bios is set to boot from the CD-rom first and boot up the computer with the install cd in the drive. During the installation it will ask you if you want to remove any existing partitions. I usually remove any existing ones and create a new one and then format ntfs.

This is probably the link you want when you get there.

I have a Dell Dimension 5100, since about a day ago my computer won't turn on and the power button light blinks amber. After looking at my computer a little bit I noticed my front USB port all jumbled up and broken. Looking around some forums I noticed that, the USB being jumbled was the problem with the computer not turning on, so I was wondering how to remove my Front USB port. A step by step guide would be nice. I just don't want to pay for geek squad or something to come over and fix it.

I wish there was a step by step guide but sometimes just opening the case and looking at what you have and what it's connected to and how it's attached to the casing is all you need to do. Jazz

How do i set up the dns right? What other requirements do I need to meet before I can successfully add a computer to a domain? I am interning at a computer company and need to figure this out..... I don't speak much technology language yet so the more simple instructions the better!!!! THANKS!!!!

A:step by step for adding a computer to a domain

Make sure you are connected to the network before attempting these instructions.

To add a computer to a domain you need to have that domain's admin username and password or your username should be a member of the domain admin group. (local admin will not work).

Your domain should be setup for DNS server and DHCP server to issue these values when a client computer attempts to connect it.

Before you attempt to connect to the Domain Server's Active Directory, go to the connected network adapter's IP settings and set "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically".

Right click on Computer icon either on desktop or inside start menu, and in the system properties, click on Advanced System Settings.

Go to the first tab (Computer name) and click on Network ID button. This will start a wizard, which will guide you through various steps involved in joining to an existing domain.

You can also use the Change button and enter the Domain name in the member of Domain field and click enter. This will ask you for the domain admin's username and password. Enter them and after authentication the computer will join the Domain and you will get a dialog box saying "Welcome to Domain (Domain name)". If the system could not find the domain's active directory then an error message will pops up. You need to fix the error and try again.

Was soooo much easier with Win 98. The only one I can get to install successfully is the 52.16 (nvidia) from the Win update site.
The others I have downloaded(from nvidia) will not install, no matter what hoops I jump through.

Here is the way I am trying it...what am I doing wrong?

First I uninstall the nvidia drivers in "add, remove...etc.

Reboot to safe mode and use a driver remover program.

Reboot and try to cancel the "new hardware found" message, and run the "exe" file for the XP certified drivers I have downloaded...reboot...No drivers installed


Then, I reboot and let Windows try to use the "new hardware found" program...and point it to the driver files I have downloaded...and it says they are not compatible(nvidia says they are "certified for XP" so why do I get this message?

There has got to be an easier way to update your video card drivers than this mess!

Hi,
First let me say that I am not a computer expert, so I am not especially well-versed in all of the computer jargon. I apologize in advance for that. I have an Inspiron All-in-One 2330 that is about 2.5 years old.  I recently noticed that the left side of the screen was looking blurry, so I ran a diagnostic test. Apparently the hard drive is operating outside of the parameters or words to that effect. It is recommended that I replace my hard drive. 
I am not inside the warranty, so I have to do it myself. This scares me. Can someone point me in the direction of explicit instructions of (1) how to actually replace the hard drive, and (2) how to put the operating system (Windows 10) back on my computer.  I am currently backing up my files, so that is one thing I know how to do!
Thanks in advance.

I've always wanted to know how to do this on my own. Could someone give me step by step instructions on how to completely erase all information from one of my hard disks (I have two) and leave all the information on the other disk. Then how to re-install windows XP and all the necessary drivers etc. Then (I know this is really getting complex) could someone tell me the best possible anti-virus software and anti-spyware software available (preferably free). And I don't think I need a firewall because I have a router, am I correct? Finally I would like to know how to create and employ a rescue-disk. Thank-you so much for the help, I will probably use this info for years to come.

A remote code execution vulnerability exists in Step-by-Step Interactive Training because of the way that Step-by-Step Interactive Training handles bookmark link files. An attacker could exploit the vulnerability by constructing a malicious bookmark link file that could potentially allow remote code execution if a user visited a malicious Web site or opened a malicious attachment that was provided in an e-mail message. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could take complete control of an affected system. However, user interaction is required to exploit this vulnerability.

Hello i Want to know how to update my Lumia 521 to Windows 10,

A:How to update my Lumia 521 to Windows 10 Step by Step Guide that works 2016!

I wondered the same about a Lumia 520, then found that if it can be done at all, it can only be done with difficulty, and little certainty of success. If I recall right, it requires bootloader unlocking, and changing the phone's identity to fool the update server into thinking that it qualifies for a W10 upgrade. It's probably a breach of the TOS, and from what I've read, not worth bothering with.

Hello, I need help with step by step instructions on how to use Hiren's cd to correct the lsass exe error.

This is what happened:
My system crashed, got blue screen error <windowsroot>\system32\hal.dll

I followed the MS instructions.... which created the new problem "lsass.exe, password not valid, reboot). I am running XP PRO, because of this error I can't boot up windows & I can't get into recovery console, don't have administrators password. I researched google and found Hiren's CD. Not sure exactly what to do from this point. I also found a possible solution on google:

Working Solution! - Without swapping HDD, re-installing windows or losing data.

This is what worked for me.

Requirements:
1) System Restore enabled in windows.
2) NTFS Dos Pro and a Boot CD/Disk - Preferabbly Hiren's Boot C (which is loaded with all the apps you need). Hiren's Boot CD (http://thanki.tk or torrentspy.com)
3) Don't use the system.bak file located in windows\repair.
4) Don't assume that either of the _regis~1, ~2, ~3 or ~4 files in a RP\Snapshot folder are the registry files you need - they are not.


Steps.
1) In your BIOS, set 1st boot device to CD.
2) Reboot with Hiren's Boot CD (or similar).
3) Load NTFS DOS Pro. (in the NTFS Ext2Fs Tools menu on the Hiren CD). You can skip Checkdisk

My current hard drive is in the process of failing. It is one of those partitioned hard drives with the OEM OS software (Windows Vista Home Premium) in a factory image on Drive D. Obviously, I need to purchase a new hard drive and install it in my PC.

But, I have a couple of basic questions:

1. Is it possible to install the OS mentioned above from the old drive to the new drive?

2. I have the product key for the OS on the side of the PC - will that work to reactivate the OS on the new drive?

Any suggestions or comments are greatly appreciated!

A:Help! Need step-by-step process for loading an OS on a new hard drive

Do you have an external drive? If so you can use a free program like Macrium Reflect or EaseUS ToDo Backup to make an image of your entire disk. The programs also have a means to burn a bootable CD or DVD with the restore program on it. When you get the new HD insert it in the machine and boot the CD. Restore from the external to the new HD. See the sites for the imaging program you choose for details like if the new drive has to be as large as if not larger than the original etc..

The advantage of doing this is that all your programs will still be installed. It's an image of the current state. That is if you think the HD is still good enough to boot and do the backup using the image program.

Saves a lot of installing and customizing to do imaging rather than factory restore.

Edit: before biting the bullet and swapping out the HD make sure you test the boot CD. Make sure it boots with the external drive plugged in and you can see the backup image on the external drive once you enter the restore program. If you can see everything then you should be OK. Just back out of the restore or remove the CD and reboot.

I will try to be to the point here. A while back I had a problem with my computer and slicked the hard drive, and when I went to reload, I realized I did not have some of the drivers for the system. I tried to download drivers for my CD Rom and CD Burner, and found the one I needed. It was a dos based program and seemed to be loading the drivers needed, but upon restart, this is all I get:

IBM
Starting Windows 98
LITE-ON IDE CD-ROM DEVICE DRIVER VERSION 2.1
COPYRIGHT (C) LITEON TECHNOLOGY CORP. 1994-1996 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
PRIMARY MASTER
PRIMARY SLAVE
SECONDARY MASTER CD WRITER IDE 8X32 1.5
15.
SECONDARY SLAVE _

And then the computer will not continue to load windows. I can start it by doing the step by step option and answering no to any question regarding my CD drives. I also can not find my sound card. I am quite the novice when it comes to computers and I guess one day I will learn to leave well enough alone, but until then, I could really use some help. My system is as follows,

Win 98se
566 intel celeron
40 gig hard drive
CDWriter IDE 8x32
LITE-ON
 

A:Windows 98se will not load without me doing step by step logon

What you need is an OEM WIN98SE boot up and install floppy.

With this floppy you boot from it and it sets up windows for you into audit mode.

You only have to press the key once during the entire operation

Folks,

I'm at a complete loss here.

Apparently, it's possible to host a single website on my XP Pro installation using IIS. (I'm connected to a T1 line, so it should be okay).

Shockingly enough, I can't find any step by step instructions anywhere on how to figure out the URL of this website that I'd create in XP Pro using IIS.

Your thoughts please...

I just received in the mail 1 new 120GB OCZ Vertex 3 SSD, 1 WD Black Caviar Drive (to match the existing 1TB WD Black Caviar drive I currently use), I also have a clean 1TB WD Caviar Blue drive I can use for what ever and an external 1TB USB 3.0 Passport for any drive imaging of file back ups etc. My rig specs are attached below. I currently have all my information on the one WD Black drive including the OS. I got these two new drives to enable a seperate SSD Boot/OS drive and to reconfigure my existing WD drive into a RAID 0 with the new drive while maintaining existing information (programs and documents) if possible. I am not anywhere near an expert, but do have some experience with hardware and configuration (I built my current rig) so a good set of instructions from an expert would be all I need. I see all the high scores for WEI and when benchmarking seperate SSD drives for OS and RAID 0 configurations that I am excited to give the new drives a try. I am sorry if this is a redundant thread, but I did look for and search for some time to find a thread I could use. I will check back often to answer any questions. Thanks!

A:I need step-by-step instructions for new Boot/OS SSD & RAID 0 Platters

Hi Chris,

Nice new gear. Lets see if we can get your system setup and running nicely.

Firstly, a quick question: I assume you want to do a fresh, clean install of Windows 7 to your SSD? In that case, my recommendation is to:

SSD

1. Unplug any existing HDD's.
2. Install the SSD drive, and then follow this tutorial to install Windows 7 to it:

Clean Install Windows 7

3. Allow Windows to complete all the updates it wants.
4. Install any applications - your drive is quite large, so there is plenty of room for Office etc. and don't forget the anti-virus software of your choice.

The RAID0

If I understand you correctly, you want to add an additional drive to your exitsing drive to create a RAID0 array and still preserve whats on it at the moment. Unfortunately, and I am happy to stand corrected, I do not think that is possible - in a RAID0 the data etc. is spanned across both disks, but at the moment it is written to a single platter.

My approach to this would be:

1. Copy all your data from the existing platter to the USB external drive BEFORE you install the SSD.
2. Reconnect your original HDD and install the new HDD. Boot the PC, and in the BIOS configure the RAID controller and add these two disks to the RAID.
3. Boot the computer. Once in Windows, in Disk Management, configure a simple drive, and partition as appropriate.
4. Now copy all your data back from the USB to the new RAID0.
5. If you like, you can also install applications to this RAID0 array.

Hiya

This is the sample code for Microsoft® .NET XML Web Services Step by Step, 0-7356-1720-1.

System Requirements

To run the sample XML Web services and client programs that we create throughout the book, you'll need a computer running Microsoft Windows 2000 or Microsoft Windows XP. You'll also need Microsoft Visual Studio .NET, which includes a complete installation of the Microsoft .NET Framework. Finally, you'll need Internet Information Services (IIS) to provide access to your Web services. Both Microsoft Windows 2000 and Microsoft Windows XP operating systems include IIS version 5.0.

Note: You must have the CreditCardValidator.dll file to build the XML Web service examples contained in the book. You can obtain the library by downloading the code above, or create it using the code in the book and the instructions in Appendix A.

Operating System - Windows 98, NT4 & 2000, Windows Me, Win XP

A:Dell WD15 Desktop Dock - Step-by-step driver/firmware/BIOS installation instructions for XPS, Latitude and Precision notebooks [UPDATED 04-22-16]

Hi Brian
Thanks for being active on this issue. (This thread was closed - so had to use the TB-15 Thunderbolt thread above this one). Thanks for opening this one for WD-15
I've been having  most of the problems mentioned in the other Thunderbolt dock  thread .. USB problems, fan noise, not recognising on startup,
I tried the driver list above (for 5510 win7 64) and some refused to install because they were for xps product not  precision. However I when on 5520 support page (for the nth time) and found a new USB driver. ie > Chipset_Driver_V2WY5_WN32_1.16.32.1_A01.EXE 
I've installed that but NOPE ... still has USB problems eg stuff like usb (2) keyboard not working. BUT unplug/replug the dock at USB C connection at laptop and it works !! (but this is a PITA and probably will wreck the socket in the long run). 
I guess my point is please sync the support page and this support forum if you can, we all love Dell but would appreciate some reciprocating :-)

We have a desktop with xp and 2 laptops with windows 7 home premium. The xp machine is connected to dsl and a 4 in1 printer. A linksys router connects to the laptops. I have tried several times ( maybe too many ) to set up this home network.

I would like to let them share files and the printer. The best I have managed is that the xp machine can see all 3 in the workgroup under my network places. A login window comes up for laptop #2 but #1 brings up an error message stating that it is not accessable and the network path was not found.

The windows 7 machines both see each other, but neither sees the xp machine.

I would like to start all over to connect them. Is there a good step by step description of the procedure for this?

Thanks for your time,

Warren
 

A:Looking for a step by step to network XP and Windows 7 machines

First, the XP systems need to have SP3 to enable Win7 to find and share with them.
This will install a few new services like Link-Layer Discovery - - be sure that is left AUTOSTART.

Second, make sure all systems have the same WORKGROUP name;
XP and Win7 have different defaults, so change one to match the other.

Third enable print/file sharing on all systems. This will open the Windows Firewall ports required.
If you have a third party firewall, then here are the generic rules:
assuming your router address is 192.168.1.1 (the important part is in bold) then

allow in tcp/udp source=192.168.1.* ports=137,137,139,445
allow out tcp/udp destination=192.168.1.* ports=137,138,139,445
the src/dest addresses lock out any other addresses and keeps sharing localized to your lan

The above is the Network Access side of sharing.

Now you need to setup the shared folders and the NTFS side.
This will control the <everyone> permission setting as read vs r/w - -
but use the Sharing Tab on the properties of the specific folder.
DO NOT share the C: drive itself.

I am just delving into NT and I need some step by step assistance. I am humbly asking for some hand-holding guidance.
The environment I am setting up is a 1 w2k server (all updates, active directory is on, DHCP is on, DNS is on, and setup as Primary Domain Controller) 4 winxp pro clients. All my goal is, is to setup file sharing and internet sharing from the 2k server to the xp clients. I have the internet sharing down. the file sharing is where I am having difficulty. I want to setup a login script for all my users to share out 3 shares. 1 is a public dir for documents, 1 for user profiles and 1 for the medical app. (I know what I have to share). I need someone to give me some step by step instructions on how to accomplish this. #1 Where on the server do I put my login scripts? Is this put locally on the clients? If so where? If not, where on the server should they reside? I want a dos box to pop up on the screen after I login to the domain and show all the mappings. What syntax do my login scripts need in order for them to map to the right share. #2 How do I know and what do I check to ensure my dns is functioning correctly so my clients recognize my domain?

This is all that I need. I would appreciate any help given and would welcome any solutions to my issue. I need clear and a concise answer please. Dont assume I know anything except basic networking.

If you are concerned about keeping your information private, then here is an easy step-by-step guide to securing your computer for free!

Below is a list of 'must haves' that work together and once installed, will make your system very secure and very difficult to compromise. It was difficult figuring out what is really free. Many products claim to be free software only to find later that they are limited or biased in some way. Everything I have listed below is 100% free (no time limits, no registration requirements, no ads, etc) at the time of this post.

First, you need a firewall to block most intruders. A great free firewall that has most features anyone would need is Outpost. Another is Kerio Personal Firewall.

After you install your firewall, you must put it to the test to make sure it's working. You'll want to scan your ports and test your browser security. Poor browser configurations can make any firewall useless. A great free site that checks security and verifies your privacy is AuditMyPC.com. Another good site is TestMyFirewall.com.

Now you need something to stop the pop-up advertisements, etc. An excellent Popup Test is available at PopupCheck.com and also lists the top ten free popup blockers. Many popup blockers are too restrictive and may block good popups such as information screens, etc. If you already have a popup blocker, then run it through this test to make sure it's doing a good job.

If you really want to hide your information... Read more

I just got an Apple Powerbook G4 and would like to set up a wireless home network with a desktop running Windows XP. I don't know where to begin!!
Would anyone have any information (or know where I could get information) about doing this?
This is a atupid question, but here goes: does the main desktop PC have to be powered on in order for the laptop to use the wireless connection (Internet), or is it just the router that's on?
What is the best router to buy?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
Thanks!!
 

A:Step by Step Instructions for Wireless Networking

If you have a router (and modem) or combined modem/router then it is just those devices that need to be on in order for any PC to reach the internet. You do not need any particular PC to be on in order for any other PC to get on-line.

The exception to this would be if you are NOT using a router, but were instead using Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) software in a PC to share the internet connection in which case, of course, the PC running ICS would always need to be on in order for any other PCs on the network to get on-line.

It says connected 100mbps on the taskbar but the browsers won't go anywhere.
The computer is a dell, XP with Linksys router and sbc dsl modem...
the lights on the modem only the first two are on, I've restarted the modem and router with the same results ran connection repair tool, spybot, adaware, ewido, checked for CW
ran hijackthis and deleted entries for myway websearch, flushed dns ran her NOD antivirus scans... I tried to install the software from my sbc install cd to run the self support tools and it stops while looking for the modem it can't find it with or without the router hooked up.
I haven't figured out a way to get her hijackthis log off her computer, the floppy wouldn't work when I tried to copy the log but I guess that has been a longtime problem with the floppy drive, the only other alternative is to go buy cdrw to copy it to but I wanted to know if there was anything I can try that I haven't already tried?
I have an emergency tools cd with the programs on it that I ran for her.

So I just put together a new computer for my first time... Its ready to plug in to the wall, but before I turn it on I wanted to know what my next steps were. I am installing Vista Business Edition as my OS. Once I plug it in, where do I go next, do I just put the DVD in the player and it will start on its own, or is there something else I need to do?

As of now, I have a Sony Blu-Ray writer and a floppy. Also, I have the Microsoft wireless optical mouse and keyboard. Will these work right away, or do I need to install drivers?

Here are my specs:
-Case: Antec Quiet P180 Black /550Watt Power Supply (Seasonic)
-Motherboard: eVGA nForce 680i SLI
-Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 (2.40 GHz, FSB1066, 4 MB L2)
-RAM: OCZ 2GB DDR2-800 (2 x 1GB)
-Hard Drive: Raptor SATA 10,000RPM 150GB
-Video Card: EVGA GeForce 7950GT 512MB
-DVD player (Sony Blu-Ray RW)
-Floppy Drive
-Cooling: Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro

Is there a system disk or something that I need to create before installing the OS?
Also, if I want to overclock, is it best to do that in the beginning or does it not matter?

Thanks in advance!
 

A:New computer, whats next step?

Order of importance:

install a router (unless you only have dial-up)
Enable the MS default FW
go on line and get all the OS updates

disable the freebe MS Firewall
Install Spybot S&D
Install Spywareblaster

I have just finished building my first computer, I'm ready to plug it in...I have windows xp pro and various other loading discs from my abit mobo, radeon 9600 pro and sound blaster platinum. What are the steps I need to do now? Do I set BIOS up first, load video drivers first or xp first or what...lol !!!I'm not looking to overclock but I am unclear on things like partitioning and formating.....Do I need to set up Fat32, if so to what benefit? And with windows...do I want to leave the owner account alone and set myself up a different account or do I want to rename the owner account to my name and go with that...I will be the only user on the computer. I heard somewhere before to leave the owner account untouched for some reason and start a new account. I've always had OEM computers before, this is my first hot rod and I want to configure it sweet !

Thanks, merlin324
 

A:Computer is built....next step !?!

Here is a good site for installing XP;
BlackViper.com

If are going to run dos based games then I believe you should stick with FAT 32, if not then NTFS is the way to go.

XP will be the start point, possibly a couple of drivers from the abit cd, then windows updates, then update drivers as needed.

If your the only user then leave accounts alone.

Basic rules of networking on Windows (I'm assuming this includes 8, 8.1)

1. Computers need to be in the same WORKGROUP

2. Computers in the same network need to have different IP numbers

3. Computers should be able to ping each other (CMD ping \\192.168.0.9) and enter your user name and password)

4. No 2 or more computers in the same network should have the same computer name

5. Just because you can't see a computer in the networking window doesn't mean it's not there, try "//xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx" in Windows Explorer

6. Private networks should consist of the following IP numbers: 10.0.0.0-10.255.255.255 or 172.16.0.0-172.31.255.255 or 192.168.0.0-192.168.255.255

7. Turn on File Sharing and Network Discovery, check use user name and password to connect to other computers

8. Every computer that a user needs access to in the network should have them as a user on it

9. Share the folders or drives you want to have access to on the network

10. If you still have problems it could be possible hardware networking is bad in one of the computers

11. You may need to have your user name and password on the computer you are going access??

Seriously, noone can help you if you don't provide any details. Shat sort of a RAID controller? What kind of RAID are you interested in? What have you done already? What do you want to achieve?

Guys i need your help on step by step how to reformat and re-install win xp to my toshiba sattelite A40.

Thanks
Rick

A:Step by Step reformating and Install Win Xp

Hi Rick and welcome to TSF !

What's the exact model of your Satellite A40 ? (something like A40-241 for instance)

Make sure to backup all your personal stuff to some external drive before you start the recovery process.

Did you get any recovery CD's with the computer ? If not then during startup look for some message telling you to "press xx to start the recovery process". Booting the computer with the recovery CD's or on the recovery partition should give you the possibility to do a complete system restore.

If you need to format and reinstall because of some virus or some crashes then tell us about it. A malware infection needs to be taken care of before attempting the recovery and hardware problems won't be cured by a re-installation of XP.

Please help me completely remove it, im not real computer techy, but i can get by with good direction. I know this isnt in the right forum, so don't get mad :-) I just really need some good clear instructions on how to completely remove this crap from my windows 7 hp laptop.

Hi, so im getting an Harddrive and a new gpu for my old desktop, i will later upgrade the cpu, mobo, ram and the case, i know that the GTX 660 im getting will get bottlenecked from the 2.4 ghz tripplecore cpu and about that im having some questions, Will the bottleneck do any sort of damage on the hardware in the computer? and should i clock the asus gtx 660 down a bit to lower the bottleneck to the point that im seeing the gpu performance starts to sink a little bit, so i will get the max performance without bottleneck and getting the card run quieter and cooler? is this a good idea to do?

A:Step by step upgrading questions

You worry too much. There will be no bottleneck. It will work fine.

Hello guys,
I got an acer laptop V3-772G 747a model, which i bought it last week. I am pretty happy with the hardware but the windows 8 that the laptop came with is just useless.
Anyway, i decide to downgrade it to windows 7 as i was happy using this version on my desktop. I try two days now to make just a simple format and it seems i try to hack nasa's computer.
What i have done exactly:
1. backing up driver.
2. Enable F12 menu in bios
3. Disable security mode by setting up password and delete it afterwards.
4. Disable network boot.
5. Setting first device the cd rom and second my usb stick
6. Setting bios to Legacy .
For each step i save and i reboot. When i do the last reboot, comes up the booting menu by pressing F 12 and when i choose to boot from the cd rom or from usb stick it comes the "no booting device massage"
Any suggestions or recommendations on that???
Thank u very much for ur time in advance !!!

A:How exactly step by step i can downgrade from Win 8 to Win 7 my Acer

Use the latest official Win7 installer for your licensed version burn to DVD with tool from Steps 1 and 2 of Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Since you're not installing in UEFI but chose Legacy Mode you'll need to delete all partitions during the booted install so it will reformat the HD as an MBR disk. If there's any problem then wipe the HD first with Diskpart Clean Command.

I would set the HDD first device to boot, then choose the DVD to boot from the F12 Acer boot choices menu. If it shows any UEFI devices then you haven't got it set fully to Legacy Mode.

My sis-in-laws computer has been down for about 2 weeks now. She has been unable to access the web, although she can still get mail. here is the thread of what has been done up until now: http://forums.techguy.org/security/462518-page-cannot-displayed-no-internet.html

Today I am going to reinstall her ISP internet portal and see if something got messed up in those settings. If that doesnt work then I want to attempt to reinstall Windows for her. The trouble is that i've only done this once and that was about 3 years ago. I dont remember much other than it was scary! So is there a step by step guide than I can print off and go by?

If I cant get it fixed for her then she is bringing it to the shop so I might as well try it first myself. Dont see how I can mess it up any worse than it already is.

so...any help? Looking for a guide that tells me how to format...I suppose I need to fix it so that it boots into the CD drive? I dont know the sequence at all or how to do many of the steps. But i'm willing to try.

and yes, I have been looking at old threads to see if I can find answers there first but none of them seem to help...
