do you have windows 7 OS disk. If yes, than insert the disk into the cd drive and reinstall the OS However, this is known as the Last Resort option as Lois link suggested. What seems to be the problem that you are going to the extreme of reformatting? just curious

I hope you have your Win7 installation disk, as your computer will no longer be usable after formating, until you reinstall your operating system.

:huh:
