    Default How to reformat my Asus laptop?

    Hey guys, I have been experiencing a few problems with my new Asus F8SN due to some installing of programs and minor tweeking. (Very slow shutdown and Getting a blank folder everytime I start my laptop) so I was thinking of doing a reformat. Is this advisable? I just want these problems to go away. I was thinking of just saving my music and movies and documents then reformating everything.

    Do I just pop in the Recovery CDs that Asus supplied? What other things should I do just to make sure I dont screw up.

    You can also consider creating an Windows install disc from the recovery disc http://www.howtohaven.com/system/cre...etupdisk.shtml. This way you can just repair Windows or just reinstall Windows on a partition and leave your data safely on a different partition.
