My son placed a large, strong magnet next to my PC. Gee, it won't boot up now. (It makes a scraping noise too. Would a magnet cause a head crash?) I can boot it from the Windows 7 installation disk, but cannot install Windows. I think I need to format
my C drive, but I don't know how to do it. I have the drivers and utilities disk that came with the machine. It contains format, so I should be able to run from the CD and format the C drive. Any suggestions on what options to give for the command? The
laptop is a Dell Studio 1535 with a 160GB hard drive. The exact specs say: "160GB, S2, 5.4, 9.5, WD-ML160"
