Yes you can, but it's no longer under warranty and they will charge you for it. My suggestion is to take it to a local repair shop; it should be much cheaper that way.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

Screen says to reboot, have no reboot device,unable to doanything to this computer, only 2 years old.have called my internet co.andmicrosoft. they tell me computer is atfault. please help


Gateway is responsible for any hardware issues with your computer. Neither the internet service provider nor the operating system manufacturer has anything to do with the hardware. Your Gateway has a power on button on its case. You may have to hold the button in for several seconds to shut it down but as you have not accessed the OS, that won't harm the hard drive. Once it's shut down, repress the power button to turn it back on and hopefully it will power up completely to the Windows or Linux OS you are using.

Booting


When you have trouble booting, What does it do when you push the on/off button? Do you get power? Do you get LED's, Fans spin, Monitor activity? Consider doing a Full Factory Restore. How old is the machine? Gateway Support can be found here: http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/LX/LX6810/LX6810nv.shtml

I need to reboot to factory settings on an old gateway how do I get it done?


Older gateways used to come with a recovery CD that would rebuild the machine back to factory settings. The alternative (which can be a little more difficult) is to use an XP setup CD and format and reinstall the operating system. The downside of that method is that you would need an XP key and you would also need to manually reinstall the hardware drivers like the sound card, network card, etc.

Complete restore to factory settings


why its not reading those disks is because the system is still there. To put it back to factory you will have to reformat the hard drive and reinstall the win operating system it came with. Any updates to the Win xp you have wont allow going back to begining as if it were a factory fresh/ or factory referb.

I leases a computer in 2004 and the lease is up in a month. What do i do?


What are your options. If you need more computer, you will want to upgrade, because todays computers are much better than a four year old. If you have options to buy it, and it fits your needs and the price is good, I would buy it. I sure would not pay much for a four year old computer. I dont know why you are leasing a desk top when they are so cheap now. My son leased a HP and it ended up costing him about $2000 for a $1000 system. Buy you a new computer with an extended warranty.

I'm trying to set up my Mom's new Gateway laptop to her new Netgear router through a ewire modem, so she can use her computer anywear in her house. We ordered the net gear pc card and it does not fit...


If the notebook is new (less than two years old) then it almost 100% most definitely absolutely has built-in wireless.

The card doesn't fit since it is a PC card and new notebooks use ExpressCards instead.
