Trouble Reformating

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I recently bought a new video card, ever since i installed it I started having trouble downloading drivers for it. I can still play games but i have tried to reformat my computer and it takes forever to load up. my computer runs everything else fine. i also bought a new hard drive to see if it would help but it still wont reformat. what could b causing this?

You need to be more specific. You make it sound like you reformatted the drive, then you say that it won't format.

It never reformats, when i try to boot it up through the reformat disk it takes hours to even get to the windows screen during reformat. it eventually just stops.

If that ONLY happens when trying to boot from the CD, you could have a bad disc or a failing optical drive.

Try the disc in another machine to make sure.

However, you stated that you have problems downloading drivers too, right?
