You won't be trying to restore info but transferring it, from how you explained it. I'm not sure about Vista but in XP it's called the file and transfer wizard. Start/ all programs/ accessories/ system tools/ files & transfer wizard. You will actually be physcially connecting the 2 pc's together with a ribbon to your printer ports. I pretty sure this is the right ports but in the wizard it will tell you.
Another way is to use a usb flash drive. At least 1 gig should be plenty of room. Copy from one and attach usb drive to the one your copying to.
You can also get an external hdd. This, to me is the most practical as you can use it to store your back ups.
All of these ways are solutions to your situation. But you must keep in mind that if you try to copy/cut a program from Vista to Xp (or other way around) you have to make sure it doesn't require the entire program to run correctly. Such as MicroSoft Office. You will have to have it on both pc's for your file transfer to work. Understand?

Gateway login


What sort of problem at log in >>?????
Forgot password ?
A "setup password" is a password that you must enter to log into a user account on your Gateway laptop.

This can be beneficial if you have a number of people using the same computer and don't want just anyone having access to your personal files.

But if you are the sole user of your Gateway laptop, then it can be more of a hindrance.
As all Gateway laptop computers run a version of the Windows operating system, you can remove the setup password by accessing the Windows Control Panel.

Click on the "Start" menu.


Select the option that reads "Control Panel." If you're running Windows Vista or Windows 7, this will have its own listing in the "Start" menu.

If you're running Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME or Windows XP, this will be found under the "Settings" sub menu.

Double click on the icon that reads "User Accounts."
Click on the name of the account that has a setup password that you want to remove.


Click on the "Remove my Password" option.
Enter your current password into the appropriately labeled box.


Click the "Remove Password" option.
Click "OK" to save your changes and exit the "User Accounts" utility.

The setup password will have been removed from your account, and you will be no longer prompted to enter it when you boot up your computer.
Unlock a Gateway Computer

Getting locked out of your Gateway computer can be frustrating, especially when you have school or work deadlines.

You can get locked out of your Gateway computer in cases where a password protected screensaver became corrupt, or if the you have set the default screensaver to use a screensaver that does not exist.

Gateway computers come with Microsoft Windows XP and 2000, including the professional versions of both. Knowing how to unlock your a Gateway computer can save you time and irritation.

Press the "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete" keys on your keyboard simultaneously to unlock your Gateway computer.


Type the last logged-on user's login information and click "OK" if you see a locked computer message along with "Only domain/username or an administrator can unlock this computer." Press the "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete" keys once again when you see the Unlock Computer window disappear. Log on as usual. Method 2

Shut down the locked Gateway computer by using the Microsoft Windows Resource Kit Shutdown tool.

This tool shuts down and restarts a Windows 2000- or NT 4.0-based Gateway computer.
Note the dialog box that comes up called System Shutdown.
Wait for the shutdown timer to run out and see the Welcome to Windows box displayed on the screen.
Press "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete," which unlocks the computer.
Log onto your Gateway computer normally.
Method 3: Backup, Modify and Restore the Registry

Click "Start" and "Run," then type in the command below in the field box exactly as printed:
%SystemRoot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe
Click "Create a Restore Point," then click "Next" on the Welcome to System Restore page that appears.
Type any name for the restore point, then click "Create" on the Create a Restore Point page. Click "Close" after creating the restore point.

Perform this procedure before you make changes to the registry, just in case you make an error; otherwise, incorrect registry changes could create serious problems with your computer.
Click "Yes" if you receive a prompt to turn on System Restore at this point.
Clear the "Turn Off System Restore" check box by clicking on it, then click "OK," and repeat.
Click "Start," then type "regedt32.exe" (without the quotes) in search field box to modify the registry and unlock the computer. Press the "Enter" key on your keyboard.
Locate the scrnsave.exe value under the registry key below:
HKEY_USERS\.Default\Control Panel\Desktop
Click "String" on the Edit menu, type "logon.scr" (without the quotes), then click "OK."
Look for the ScreenSaverIsSecure value, then click "String" on the Edit menu, type "0," then click "OK."
Quit the Registry Editor
Click "Start" and "Run," then type the command below exactly as printed to restore the registry, then click "OK":
%SystemRoot%\System32\Restore\Rstrui.exe
Click "Restore My Computer to an Earlier Time" on the Welcome to System Restore page, then click "Next."

Note your computer may already be selected to restore to an earlier time--in this case, just click "Next."
Click the system checkpoint on the Select a Restore Point page. Click "Guided Help (Registry Backup)," then click "Next" on the "On This List Select the Restore Point" area.

Click "OK" if you see a System Restore message listing all the configuration changes it will make. Click "Next" when you come to the Confirm Restore Point Selection page.

System Restore will now restore the Windows XP configuration you had at an earlier time, and then it will restart your Gateway computer.

Log onto your computer as usual, and then click "OK" when you see the System Restore Confirmation page.

I downgraded my vista to xp 32bit and now im figuring out that my gateway m-7351u doesnt suppport xp and I dont really want to go back to vista. What should I do? How can I get my sound working on xp.


Hi There,

Go to this thread. Alot of people worked hard to put it together. I believe the Audio Driver a ways down the page highlighted in red will work on your machine.

I spent a long time tracking this down for you so NO "unhelpful" marks, please.

I have GATEWAY LAPTOP model mx6424 with windows vista home primium, service pack 1. but i have no sonud, i got like this massage. THAT ''NO AUDIO OUTPUT DEVICE INSTLLED'' PLZZZ,HELP ME.


Hello !

1. I have some solutions for you i hope.
Below is a link to a support page on gateway but you have to find your model nr to be sure its the right driver.

http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/search.asp?param=sigmatel

2. Below is a link to page for buying restore-disk for gateway

http://restore-disk.com/restoredisks/Gateway/GatewayMX6424/Gateway-MX6424-Vista-Restore-Disk-145022.html

3. On this page you need to be a member if you want that driver.The problem today is that we all have to pay for every driver when we need them for our computers and stuff.

http://members.driverguide.com/driver/detail.php?driverid=1630218

if none of this will work the best thing is to maybe install windows xp instead.

Good Luck and
Best Regards

I recently bought a new Gateway computer and when I tried to install my canon printer from the disc, it would not install it for me. I have a Canon Oixma MP210 SERIES printer that I bought three months...


You might want to check Canon's website to see if they provide a downloadable driver that will make your printer Vista compatible. Years ago, I had the same problem with an Epson all-in-one when making the jump from Windows 98 to XP. I was able to download and install a driver from Epson that restored most (but not all) of the device's functions.
