What you really need to do is if you have the originals that came with computer all you have to do is run the system restore and let it the cd run. While it completes the restore. Once it completes it will restart and then all you do is take out the cd once the restore completes. That should solve the problem. If not you can personally send the system and I'll receive the system.

Go into system restore under windows system tools and rest your restore point to one prior to restoring your computer to original factory condition. Then wait until you can determine which configuration error is the problem and then restore to original settings. Good Luck

Your Windows 7 Gateway computer will likely run faster as a result of deleting old and unnecessary files.
It's also a good idea to restore your Windows 7 Gateway computer to its original factory settings if you plan on selling it, or passing it along to a family member or friend.

Click the "Start" icon in the lower-left corner of your Windows 7 home screen.
Click "All Programs" in the Start menu, then click "Gateway".
Click "Gateway Recovery Management" to open the Gateway Recovery Management program.
Click the "Restore" header, then click "Restore System To Factory Default".
Click "Yes" in the "Confirm Restoration" dialog box, then click "Yes".
Click "OK" in the dialog box warning you that all of the personal data on your computer will be deleted. Your computer will automatically restart.
When your computer restarts the restoration process will begin. The process could take anywhere between 30 and 90 minutes.
Click "OK" when a dialog appears telling you that the computer has been restored to its original factory settings and that you need to reboot your Gateway Windows 7 computer.
Your computer will reboot.
After the computer restarts you will need to configure Windows 7 with your personal preferences.

Clean my PC


Over time a computer may experience a debilitating virus infection, system error or hard drive error rendering it unusable. Perform a restore on a Dell Dimension 4600 to resolve any problems the computer may encounter. The restoration will return the computer to the original operating condition, but all the software and other data stored to the hard drive will be erased during the process.

Connect the external hard drive to the computer and wait for its folder to appear on the desktop. Copy and paste any valuable data, documents, photos or other files you want to save to the external hard drive's folder. Right-click the folder and choose "Eject" once the backup is complete. Remove any hardware devices, such as printers, MP3 players, scanners and PDAs, from the computer as they can be damaged during the restoration. Restart the computer and press the "F8" key when the Dell logo appears on the screen during the startup process. The "Advanced Boot Options Menu" will appear. Use the arrow keys to select the "Repair Your Computer" option and press "Enter." Select the language settings for your computer and click "Next." Log in with an administrator account and click "OK." Click on the "Dell Factory Image Restore" icon. Click "Next" in the window that appears and click the box for "Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition." Click "Next" to begin the restore process. The utility will return the computer to the factory settings and reformat the hard drive. Click "Finish" to restart the computer with the new operating condition in place.

My computer says configure updates and then it automatically turns off


This will be a long process of troubleshooting and may end up of restoring your computer to a factory settings. You can try the steps below:
First is boot up to advance boot options, to do this follow the steps below: -Turn off your computer -After pressing the turn on button start tapping F8 key until you see the Advance Boot Option. -Try choosing Last Known Good Configuration if it fail try Safemode, Safemode with networking or safemode with command prompt, if one is successful use system restore to restore your computer to an earlier date but if it fails you'll need to use your Operating System Disc to use the repair option.
Here's how to access system restore incase you're able to access Last Known Good Configuration, Safemode, Safemode with networking or safemode with command prompt: Windows XP: Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore select Restore my computer to an earlier time then select a bold date on the calendar and click Next on the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows XP configuration, and then restarts the computer. Then click OK on the System Restore Restoration Complete page.
Windows 7 and Windows Vista: Click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore select Restore my computer to an earlier time then select a bold date on the calendar and click Next on the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows configuration, and then restarts the computer. Then click OK on the System Restore Restoration Complete page.
If you're on safemode with command prompt: At the command prompt, type %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe, and then press ENTER, System Restore window will pop-up then select Restore my computer to an earlier time then select a bold date on the calendar and click Next on the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows configuration, and then restarts the computer. Then click OK on the System Restore Restoration Complete page.
If all the steps above fails you need to use the recover disc or the operating system disc to do a repair on your computer. Revert back in case you need steps for using start-up repair.
Note: If the steps above and start-up repair fail there's no other option but to restore your computer to factory settings.

Hi my HP failed to restore factory settings and now will not start, an error page come up at the begining "windows failed to start, a recent hardware or software change might be to cause". it...


Try booting into safe mode. press F8 immediatly after the logo screen disapears when you start up your computer. see if you can get in that way. if you are able to get in try using a restore point. sometimes this is caused by software that requires making system changes such as office when it creates the "one note printer option" you can try using "msconfig" from the start>accesories>run then typing msconfig then hit enter. under general tab select " selective start up and uncheck everything but "use original boot configuration. then under boot tab uncheck everything. reboot and see if you can get in. otherwise you are going to have to contact HP. if you have changed or upgraded the video or sound card this might happen as what the factory restore actually does is completly erase, format and copy (not install) a pre-installed windows installation from an image located on a recover partition. if you have infact replaced or upgraded anything ( other than Hard drive this will not cause your problem) remove them and do restore again. then after successful factory reset reinstall one, install drivers, reboot make sure works then install other, rinse and repeat.

Unable to reinstall DVD backups after HP SYSTEM RECOVERY failed


Code "purple" means you and your computer are done. It is an unrecoverable error that means you need a new system. However, I have found a couple of postings that claim to know a fix. I can not verify these methods, I do not own a HP or other type of prefab PC (custom is the only way to go). Anyway, here are the links, good luck.

Need to reboot my dell/windowsXP hard drive to factory settings


You have to put in the cd that came with your dell, then boot your computer. It will boot from the cd and give you an option to restore your factory condition. It will take around 1-2 hours for the process to complete.
