Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I used memtest 3 days ago coz my pc has been acting up when i play DX11 games, I cant find any fix so I decided Id just reinstall windows hopefully it will work. The BIOS wont boot to my usb no matter what, and my TVs also cant recognize my usb, that being said, it works normally when transferring files from pc to pc... I think messed it up after tinkering on Command Prompt trying to recover the space I lost from memtest... How do I revert my usb to its defaults??? halp pls

I had similar in past. I think I had to use 3rd party tool to reset the format but can't recall which one. Debating buying a bunch of cheap small drives just for things like this.

You still need to format it....

Do that CMD thing then click START, type in DISK MANAGEMENT, find the USB, give it a letter and format it to FAT32.
