    I have an HP Pavillion za4900 laptop. It is running Windows XP and I need to reformat it. Can I reformat without any disks? Its actually one of my friends laptops and she says she doesn't have the disks, so is there anyway that I can reformat without the disk?

    You can reformat the Hard drive but it will erase anything that is on it..........

    You would need a Operating System disk to put an Operating System back on.

    You can use this to reformat

    Get a hold of SuperFDisk and try that first
