  1. ive had it with my laptop. can someone please help me.
    i got it back from the repair place today where they completely formatted and cleaned my computer.
    so i take it home and have to reinstall windows, so i have to format it myself again, sounds easy enough? NO
    i have made it down to 1 partition and started formatting, this was about 2 hours ago now and it is still on 0% is there anyone that can give me some advice, should i just wait it out?? HELP HELP HELP

    Looks like you need a new hard drive unfortunately.

    I'd take it back to the repair place.

    anymore suggestions?
    i dont have a floppy drive so the win 98 idea was a flop,
    i would really like to do this myself if i could, am i getting something wrong with the partitioning, should i be seperating it? i dont know, someone give me answers that make sense, i dont know much about computers, letalone their setup.
