If you do not have restore or windows installation CD's then DO NOT reformat.

Reformatting wipes you hard drive completely and without any way to reinstall windows you would kill your machine.

i have the windows instillation cd, but i just installed a lot of new hardware (mobo, cpu, gpu, ram.) Should i still reinstall? Also kinda off topic but my dvd drive shows up as a hard drive in the bios, and in windows it dosent even detect it.

as soon as you finished installing windows did you run your m/b setup disk
are you using an 80 wire ide cable with it,blue grey and black plugs
have you set it as master on the second ide channel with the black plug,plugged into it
