My gateway windows xp will not run without it being on "safe mode" and i don't have a windows xp disk. gateway people told me it's a software problem and would be happy to fix it over the phon


If you need the XP disc you will have to purchase one or borrow one from a friend that is a legal version. You used to be able to get the disc using a P2P torrent program it has become something that has always been illegal to download bootlegged copies of software. "Warning" because of the new laws and the government stepping in to stop piracy a lot of programs that offer the disc are a huge risk now. So getting a legal copy would be something you may want to ponder a purchase of. You can buy the software just hunt around online you can get a pretty good deal that way you will own it and you can always have it handy. I agree with the software issue. John

Victim of software counterfeiting


Each copy of Windows XP has a unique 25-character license-key.
Legallly, that license-key can only be used to install Windows XP on _one_ computer at a time.

However, Microsoft is stating that the license-key used for your copy of Windows XP has been used on _more_ than one computer.

So, follow the on-screen instructions to use you credit-card to purchase a valid license-key for Windows XP. Or, if you have a fairly-recent computer, purchase a copy of Windows 7, and upgrade your computer.

Where did you get your computer? A computer-store that has "reused" a license-key is in violation of their contracts with Microsoft, and should be reported: 1-800-R-U-LEGIT.

This copy of Windows did not pass genuine validation


If you purchased the computer with Windows XP Professional pre-installed from a computer-store, then the computer-store is guilty of "software piracy". Call Microsoft (1-800-R-U-LEGIT) and report the store for not selling you a "genuine" copy of Microsoft software.

If you have a brand-name computer (e.g., Dell, eMachines) purchased since 2001, it came with a genuine copy of Windows, and a decal (either on the side of a desktop computer, or on the bottom of a laptop) with a valid 25-character product-key.
Contact that manufacturer, and order a replacement set of the "System Restore" CD/DVD disks. Reinstall Windows using those disks and the product-key.

If you have a "bootleg" version of Windows, you need to follow the on-screen instructions to "get genuine", i.e., use your credit-card to purchase a valid product-key from MIcrosoft.

Or, purchase a Windows 7 Upgrade package from a computer-store, and install Windows 7.

Purchase computer 3 yrs ago with Vista. Turn on computer today and black screen with This copy is not geniune in bottom right corner. Need confirmation ID but no one at Acer or Microsoft will help me...


Several possibilities:
1. a computer-virus is displaying that message.
2. Windows itself has messed-up, i.e., _falsely_ issuing the message, for no good reason;
3. somebody installed a "bootleg" copy of Vista.

Look on the bottom of the laptop.
Is there a genuine Microsoft sticker, indicating that the computer was shipped with Vista (or XP???) pre-installed? Is there a 25-character product-key?

If you have the original "System Restore" set of CD-ROMs that were factory-shipped with the computer, then backup your data (to an external disk-drive), and reinstall Windows, using that product-key on the sticker.

If you don't have those CD-ROMs, ACER will courier-ship you a replacement set ($20 plus shipping).

So, in brief, backup/reinstall/restore.

Gateway 7330GZ Not Booting Properly


Probably a virus, or your windows folder got corrupted. Try to use Knoppix (A linux distrobution that boots from a CD) to get all your data onto a pen drive or external hard drive. Download the Knoppix ISO at Knoppix.com and burn it onto a CD or DVD using MagicISO (magiciso.com). Insert the CD, and you should see the boot screen. Open the file manager, and copy all the files you want to keep from your hard drive to a pen drive or external hard drive. Then, reinstall Windows using a recovery CD (one might have come with your computer). Copy the files back, and PRESTO!

Changing an os


as it is illegal to use pirate software, it is possible to make it a legal copy, it will cost around £90-£100, for a liceice code, or you can download anti-genuine authentication tools of the net to make your copy look guenuine!

Hard drive not working properly


What is the original OS? If it's XP you can't install 98 over the top of it without formatting it to FAT32 first.
