    How do I format my laptop?

    A:

    To format a laptop, locate the restore disk that came with the computer, and save drivers and personal files on a burnable disk or external hard drive. Formatting the laptop deletes all its contents, so saving files you wish to keep to a disc or external hard drive is very important. After ensuring that all the necessary files and drivers are saved, access the computer's BIOS from the startup screen, and then set the first drive to CD. Reboot if necessary, and follow the prompts provided by the restore disk. The entire process can take anywhere from several minutes to well over an hour depending on the size and speed of the laptop's hard drive.
