Question about Gateway Computers & Internet

7 Answers

I apparently restored the computer without saveing all of the microsoft software installed on it at the factory. I was told I had to contact you to get a disc to reinstall these programs, what do I need to do to get this disc and how much will it cost me. My old sony came with ALL of this WHEN YUO BOUGHT IT. is this a gimic to get more money out of people or what. I've been very unhappy with this whole gateway experience. Also, I can't ptint from my computer. This is why I was trying to restore the system, Ther is no program showing up on computer for the printer, but when I try to install the disc I'm told it's already there. I can not find it to delete it and try again. Is there a PHONE number to call and talk to a human, I'm not a computer person.

For the printer drivers - you just need to visit the manufacturers website and download the software needed for FREE

For the Microsoft programs - need to buy them at Microsoft's website.

Post the exact model of your Gateway computer, so that we can see if there is a driver and software download available.

to reinstall the printer use the printer disk, or give us the printer make and model to find the download for the printer software. The printer does not work because software is not installed.

    You can also download the Gateway download assistant, click tha link below.
    Run the program after downloading, that will guide through reinstalling the software.
    You still need to run the printer disk or to give us the model of your printer.

I would like to restore my computer to the factory settings. How can I do this without a restore disc


Depending on the Make and model, press F8 just before it boots and select restore. If the restore partition is still intact, you may restore your factory settings.

I have a "acer ASPIRE ONE A0722" I had to restore it to factory setting, my Drive's are wrong and I keep getting a notice saying the wrong drive's were installed; how can I resolve this issue for free


Sounds like you have tried to down load unregistered software. Microsoft will not let you do that anymore without problems. I never have a problem with upgrades. My neighbor has nothing but problems because he wants free software. Your drive has nothing to do with the download other than to save it. Microsoft an your computer cares nothing about your computers drive, only that it fits an runs. Some where you have downloaded copies or similar an they are rejecting you. If you can get back to the original set up with some disks it will go back to normal

Product key 25 microsoft


Which operating system ???
If you are trying to recover a key of an already installed program on your computer there are freeware keyfinders on the internet
http://download.cnet.com/%7Bvalue=http://www.download.com/magical-jelly-bean-keyfinder/3000-18487_4-10079600.html The Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder is a freeware utility that retrieves your Product Key (cd key) used to install windows from your registry.
It has the options to copy the key to clipboard, save it to a text file, or print it for safekeeping.
Serial keys Location
Lift up your computer and look for a tag.
The tag will probably be located on the side of the computer, or on the bottom of the unit for a laptop.
The service tag is generally a large black and white tag and it will say "Service Tag Number."
Do not confuse this tag with the Windows tag, which may be located in the same area on the computer.
or
Restore My Product Key
Product key glitches can occur as a result of operating system file changes and random errors, leaving you with constant re-registration reminders even where you have already entered a valid key for a particular product.
The quickest fix is to restore your computer using the System Restore feature, which will take your computer's settings back in time to a point before the product key problem first occurred.

Open "Start," click "All Programs," open "Accessories," and click the "System Tools" folder.
Click on "System Restore" and select the option to "Restore my computer."
Click on a restore point from before the product key error first appeared.
Press "Next" to begin the automated restore.

or
Get a New Product Key
Having the product key of a software application is essential when installing and activating the software on your computer.
Product keys may also be called CD keys, serial numbers or activation codes.
If, for some reason, you lose the product key, or it stops functioning, you must get a new product key from the creator of the software.
Most software companies work with their customers in resolving product-key issues.
For example, Microsoft advises its customers to contact Microsoft Support Services in the event that a product key becomes lost or damaged.

Go to the website for the software company.
Look for a heading such as "Contact Us," "Customer Service" or "Support."
Get the contact information for the company, such as an email address or telephone number. Some companies require that you contact them through a web-based form on the website.
Contact the company by phone or email explaining that you have lost your product key or that it is no longer working.
Include as much information as you can to help them verify that you are an authentic customer. Include copies of receipts you received (email or physical copies).
If you have original packaging from the product, include any relevant bar-code or version numbers.
Refer to the name and email address that you used to register the product.

Need to reinstall Office 2007 Home and Student on my laptop after doing a factory restore. Used all the licenses but this laptop was one of the 3 that I original installed. Will it let me reinstall or will...


my friend if you buy a license software in microsoft office or operating system, you can find the license key in the cover of your software. You can then reinstall your software without the support of microsoft. But if you don't have the license key or product key of the software hen it is safe to contact your supplier for assistance regarding the license issues.
If this solution is work then you can repeat it next time you have encounter same problem.
If you need more assistance just reply to this post.

I want to restore my Acer Aspire M1100 desktop computer back to factory settings. I have the disks from Acer, one is a System Disk and one is a Recovery Disk. Is there any way to restore/reinstall Vista...


Hello,

If you used the restore disk on your computer it will erase all files, and all your programs. the restore Factory settings means "ALL" settings the time you created the CD for the restore.

If you have an individual Vista Installer CD with the Serial you can use it and use restore option.

Thank you for using Fixya
Hope this helps.
