Question about Gateway Solo 5300 Notebook

1 Answer

Laptop problems I emailed you ther other day. You helped with a computer problem.I need your help again. To fresh your memory I sent you the emails from ther other day they are down below my question. I wasn't sure how to email and ask again thank you so much. Can you tell me where I may be able to find a reinstallation disk and the software too. Also what software do I need? The computer has a sticker on the back that says it is Windows 2000 Professional 1-2 cpu by microsoft. It also has a Product key. I just don't know anything about computers. Thank you so much for your help. sure..sounds like it needs a re install of the operating system, as that image is not a photographic one, but a digital image..if this is a new one for you, then a reinstallation is needed. if you did not get the disks, then you will need new software too. My daughter's laptop has a message that keeps coming up when turned on. It will load up when you turn the computer on and get to the window xp loading and then a black screen comes up with this message in a box saying........ ISASS.exe-Bad Image The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\SAMSRV.dll is not a valid windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette. (then it has an "ok" in a block once you click it, it goes off but nothing else happens. We can't bring anything up on this computer at all. I have even put cd's in it and it won't acknowledge it. My mother bought this laptop off ebay for my daughter for a graduation gift. There was not a cd or anything with it at all. The computer is a gateway solo 5300.Please help???

If I get emails I want to keep in my inbox or folder it disappears if I delete it from trash, all mail, or sent mail if I have sent it on. How do I stop this.

I will assume that you keep your messages locally. If this is happening I will use another computer to access my email. Usually you can always receive emails from the internet page that holds your account. Verizon, Comcast etc(or you can use your phone). If you can see your emails then the problem is in your computer. Provide with more information like what email program do you use, what operating system, etc. You can if you wish contact me at

My 'Sent Mail' is always empty. Cannot check who I sent emails to. Why?

The most probable cause would be something in your settings for your web-mail, if that is what you're using, or in the configuration of your email client (e.g. Outlook). Another possibility is security software on your computer automatically clearing your sent folder or the equivalent security setting in web-mail doing the same.

If it's web-mail which you're using then the solution should be fairly simple, at least in terms of where you'll have to hunt and peck for the change in your web-mail configuration. You'll want to start with the help or support section of whatever web-mail service you're using, and probably you'll want to start with the FAQs first and run a search through them.

If you're using an email client on your computer, you'll first want to determine which protocol you're using: IMAP or POP3. IMAP leaves the email you receive on the server, whereas POP3 moves the emails you receive from the server to your computer.

IMAP shouldn't cause you any quirky problems with your sent mail folder, aside from the independent security software I mentioned earlier or explicit settings in your email client.

With the other protocol, POP3, your client is downloading all of your emails and not leaving copies on the server. It is possible that your sent folder is empty, in this scenario, if your email client is looking at the server's sent folder and not your client's sent folder. Hopefully something of this helps you solve your problem.

I have a mini laptop that has some problems, so the hp support said to sent it in the shipping box they sent to be repaired BUT BACK UP FIRST. So i have a memory stick, but don't know where to sjtop -...

Insert your flash drive (memory stick) and copy anything you want to save like pictures, music, documents, etc. from your hard drive to the flash drive. You should not need to backup your email documents if you are using gmail, yahoo, hotmail or a similar email account. Good luck!

Trying to get my netbook to pick up email sent to my main computer. they are linked via a router

Hi, I don't think it can be done unless you setup an internal mail server.But you could setup an email acount on the laptop.
You need to input the main settings that you used originally.But once the email has been downloaded it will only be on that computer.
Now if you have an online email service then you can access your mail from any computer.
Who is your isp?
I will try and help more.
