You can use your Windows op system to reformat your hard drive, but then you would need to reinstall the operating system and you stated you do not have the disk.

What exactly are you trying to do? Why do you feel you need to reformat the drive?

thankyou for your quick responce.my computer now does not run my games very fast and also before they removed my mother board i had a program for my sound card now that proram is still there but i cannot use it as it is not compatable with the in built sound card in fact my machine seems it is like clockwork compaired to what it was like before they got it in this shop I am fed up i dont think it is right and i do not believe it is normal for a shop to take 7 weeks to change a mother board i know they had problems but there excuse was they coul;d not get the motherboard what was inside my machine also i believe there is a lot of other programs running in there but i believe i dont need them they also charged 342 pounds for a new mother board and processor i dont mind but i do mind when what i asked for was a board what does the same as the one before and now i find it is slower and worse still i cannot play my games

hello this is a question . I would like to know can anything in my bios settings stop me from using my instalation discs . these discs are just made up by the computer manufacturer . my computer has a widows logo with an id number stamped on it . i have managed to use these before but now the shop who installed my motherboard it seems might have changed the settings . do you think i should just take it back .or can the bios be changed to except my widows discs and also can it be made so when i need to press r for reinstall the keyboard will also work

Please let us know the make and model of your PC (along with the old motherboard) and the make and model of your new motherboard.

Some OEM versions of Windows are locked to the OEM BIOS (like Dell), but this may or may not be your problem.
