Why do you want to format you laptop? What desperate problem do you have that makes formatting necessary?

Formatting with destroy the information on the laptop and make reinstalling the operating system necessary. To do that you will need a CD drive that works.

So although it may be possible to reformat without the CD drive, you would be cutting yourself of at the knees if you haven't got a working CD drive to reinstall the Operating System with.

Have you tried booting from the xp cd?

If you have, and it didn't work, it may be because you have not set up the cd-rom drive as the "first boot device" in the BIOS settings.

The BIOS settings are usually accessed on an Acer by pressing F2 within the first 10 secs. of boot up.
