It takes a lot of time to format your computer and have it in up and running condition.
You should always consider formatting your computer in following cases.
1) If you see a blue screen when you start your computer and there is no way to skip it.
2) If there are viruses in your computer
3) System takes a lot of time in booting (slow booting).
Before you format your PC try every alternative to fix it. We recommend it should be always used as a last resort.
If you have decided to format your PC you must know that by default operating system will erase every data from the “C:” drive. During the installation of windows 7 all the system files go to “C:”. If there are any data that you don’t want to lose we suggest you copy those files into any other external files or on other drives in your hard disk. Note: You should always save any data or files in any other drive other than “C:”. In case your system gets corrupt or you are forced to format your computer, there is no danger of losing data.
Lets learn how to install windows 7.
Restart your computer. When the computer restarts the first black screen will show you the brand of the computer. Most PC will either have “DEL” or “F2” key as a command to enter BIOS set up, choose the one that is applicable. Once you enter the BIOS set up use the arrow key to navigate to the “Boot” menu.
The “Boot” menu gives you the option to prioritize the booting order. Depending on the source, i.e. whether you are using USB Flash Drive or CD Drive to boot your PC you need to move it up the order. Once that is done press “F10”. A message will appear “Save configuration changes and exit now?”. Press “Enter”.
Note: You can learn to make USB Flash Drive bootable by clicking on “How to make USB Flash Drive bootable”
Your system will restart.
Now after the generic startup, a message appears “Press any key to boot from CD or DVD”. Press a key on your keyboard, asap.
You will now see a message “Windows is loading files” and a white progress bar at the bottom.
The following screen will show you “Language”, “Time and currency format” and “Keyboard or input method”. If English is your preferred language leave it as it is. Click “Next”.
The next screen will show you three options “Install now”, “What to know before installing Windows” and “Repair your computer”. Choose “Install now” option.
Now the screen will show you the license terms. Tick “I accept license terms” and then click “Next”. You will see two options now “Upgrade” and “Custom Advanced”. Click “Custom Advanced”.”Installing Windows” this screen means that the installation has begun. Now the windows will go through various stages of set up and your computer will reboot twice. After the second reboot you will see a screen that will ask you to “Type a username” and “Type a computer name”. This is mandatory to proceed further. The username will be administrator account name.
On the next screen you will be asked to create a password. This is optional and can be skipped. If you put in a password you will need to enter a password hint to go to the next screen.
The next screen will ask you for the password key that must have come with the Microsoft Windows CD. If you do not enter any key and click “Next” your PC will run in a trial mode, automatically. The trial mode is for 30 days. You can also enter the product key later, too.
You are now in a screen “Help protect your computer and improve Windows automatically”. Choose “Use recommended settings”. This option allows Windows to automatically update itself with the new updates that is released over the time to fix any glitches and update security definition to make your browsing experience better and safer.
After you click “Next” you are now on “Review your time and date settings”. You can choose the Time zone and appropriate date.
If your computer is connected to the internet you will get a pop up asking for current location, “Home network”, “Work network” and “Public network”. Choose the appropriate setting.
Congratulations! You have installed the OS on your computer successfully.
