I'm operating a windows xp computer. Im having many problems with drives and itunes and my network. If i want to reformat my hard drive what is the easiest way to go. Also how long do u think this will take. Sorry i'm just not that good with computers.
You would only need a simple reformat, which is very very easy to do- regardless of your pc knowledge.
First, back-up all data from your hard drive to an external device, such as a external hard drive, or burn data to dvd or cd's.
Once you have all your data backed up, you now need to make sure you have all the correct drivers for when you reformat - when you buy a pc, you will have a drivers cd, take a look to see if you have it.
If you can't find the drivers cd, then download DriverMax
which is a program that allows you to back-up and export your drivers - save a copy of the backed up drivers and also a copy of the software and burn to a cd for when you reformat.
Now, you need to have your XP CD and product key to hand.
