Tips on Formatting HP® Mini 210?
Formatting is the process of rebuilding of the hard disk space and creating partition with installing operating systems. In HP Mini 210, the process of formatting the hard disk is referred as HP recovery and therefore there are multiple steps involved in formatting or recovering the system. The reason behind format could be the operating system files being corrupt or lost or computer being infected by virus. There could be various other reasons that may demand a format.
Here we will talk about the reasons of formatting in HP Mini 210:
- The only Administrator forgets the password
- Blue screen of death
- Format through recovery CD
- Virus infection in the operating system
The only Administrator forgets the password
An HP Mini 210 system offers multiple user accounts to be created. However if there is only one user account and the user forgets the password of the account, then the only way to regain the password and use the system again is to format the system. Usually the formatting of the system in context of HP is known as recovery. While formatting the system, it also loads the drivers, the files and other software along with the operating system.
Blue screen of death
Blue screen error is an error which causes irreversible damage and there is not much of work around for blue screen error. However Windows advanced option must be tried. For this,the system must be completely turned off first. Then boot and press on ‘F8′ key repeatedly and the window would display ‘Advanced options’. Select on the option which says ‘Last known good configuration. The system should boot. If it does not, then try booting the system in ‘Safe’ mode and try a System Restore. If that also does not give desirable results then the last option has to be a format.
The master boot file contains all the files required to boot the system. In many a situation due to different circumstances the master boot files get corrupt in HP Mini 210 systems. In such a situation, the operating system does not get loaded and the system can not load up. Therefore the system has to be formatted.
When the system gets infected, there are warnings from the system security which pops up and warn. Therefore in such situation it is essential to pay notice and check for malicious software removal tool. The malicious software removal toll checks for viruses and infection that are leading to the issue. One could also check on virus scanner so that the system could check on viruses. To confirm whether any antivirus is installed or not, check ‘Control panel’. If not, install an antivirus and scan the computer. The antivirus software should ideally scan the system and quarantine the virus. However if it is not able to do that, format becomes a must for the system.
