Restore a gateway 505gr

I need to do a system restore on my computer. There is something wrong with the original disk. I can't get one from Gateway as they say it is no longer available. Do you know of somewhere else I can get the restore disk from?

Trying to restore os


Tap F1 when booting, to enter the BIOS Setup utility, and make your CD/DVD drive the first boot device. However, I'm not sure you need to put the system disk in to restore. This machine may have a hidden restore partition. Try this. Remove the disc, and invoke your restore by pressing F11 when booting, and follow the on-screen instructions. See page 49 of the manual for how to restore the computer to the original configuration... http://www.manualslib.com/manual/253462/Gateway-300x.html#product-GT5056

I try to do a full factory Restore on a Gateway SX2110G but it says that there is files missing and that I need a restore disk and this system didn't come with any.


When trying to upgrade to a higher OS version and it fails this can also cause many issues throughout the restore that is in the machine when you get a new machine it is always advantageous to make a hard copy of the restore incase things of this nature happen. there are many ways in which you can correct this (provided that te main backup is not damage, should have a restore partition).

gateways support area is located here:
http://support.gateway.com/product/?cmpid=supportnav

The other alterative to get this back to factory restore if the above partition is damaged is to obtain a new physical copy from Gateway themselves.

Computer stopped midway during a restore point and now cannot be restored or backed up or transfer files. Nothing is being recognized by the system. The restore disc is not being recognized by the drive...


reformat the hard drive and try to re-install the disk.. you hard drive it too full and cannot load temporary files that need to extract to install components and op sys. format the hard drive.
please rate this post.. thanks.

How do i reboot my gateway desktop back to original factory condition, if I dont have any disk with it?


There might be a restore partion. While the computer is first booting up look for something like "Press F2 to restore". If you don't see that then your machine probably doesn't have one and you will need to contact Gateway for a set of restore CD's.
