I have loaded windows XP Pro on my laptop to find that it is running very slow. I realise that it is an old laptop and want to re-format it. I know how to re-format a computer but this time trying to re-format my laptop it come up with "This program cannot be run in DOS mode". I have tried all sorts of ways to format but coming up with nothing.

Anyone out there that could help with this problem would be really appreciated.

Regards.

Let the XP Install disk do it. At the begenning of the install process. Read the messages carefully. I suggest deleteing any and all partions and rebuilding.

MAKE SURE YOUR DATA IS BACKED UP!!!!!!!!
