I have an Advent 9915W laptop which originally had Vista installed. The hard drive now has three partitions. One is the original recovery partition of approx 6GB (no drive letter), C drive 50GB, and D drive the remainder approx. 95GB. I have installed XP on the C drive and I am trying to format the D drive. The formatting reaches 29% and stops. The computer doesn't hang, I can use it as normal but the formatting will not go any further. It still appears to be formatting but has just stoped. Any ideas?
