Here is another option...your computer may have a system restore point (windows xp has this). Go to Start menu, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and System Restore. Then all you do is follow the wizard instructions. All Windows XP take a "snapshot" of your computer at various times, and you will be able to pick through many days for restore points. This will restore your computer to that day, before you had your problem. Afterwards, you can even set up your own restore points whenever you wish. Just follow the instructions on System Restore! Let me know how it turns out.

Due that the system restore is not available, if you need to reload your system you can do it with a any original windows cd to install your operating system and then complete the installation downloading the drivers (if you need some) from the manufacturer website (gateway)

Is there not a 2nd partition on your computer with the restore files on? If there is try pressing Alt + F10 when the gateway screen appears on boot. This will restore you computer to the factory settings.

Before restore starts it will ask you for a password, this would have been user generated when you first got the computer. If you don't know the password, press enter - maybe you didn't enter one to begin with and this will bypass it, or it may give you a hint as to what the password is. Or just try typing in admin. (if you don't remember your password - I don't know what to suggest, except it may be the same password you use for your user account or did use when you first got the computer.)

I have tried looking for restore disks for you and came back with nothing.

I hope this helps

My gateway computer screen looks like a book closing. Can't restore bc the date won't go back. How do I fix this?


Does it look OK if you plug it into a monitor? If so it's a hardware issue with your screen. I haven't seen what you're describing before. Also,do you mean there is no restore date in backup and restore? If so you have no restore points to work from. If you have the disks you can restore from them. Save your data somewhere first. You can call gateway and they should be able to walk you through a system restore from the hard disk. Again save your data to something external? You can usually buy factory restore disks from the manufacturer for about $50 also

My gateway laptop 4540gz cant find opp system


Operating system is the main program of the computer. It can b easily detected by your computer in boot up. So if the computer doesn't detect it, this are the steps you can try :

  1. First try to run system restore if you have one.
  2. If you don't have system restore disk, or back up disk, you can remove your hardisk from your laptop and try to connect it to other computer as an external hard drive. in that, you can copy important files and back up it in other computer if it is not also deleted.
  3. Then if you have back up your file or not, you must format your hard disk. return your hard disk to your laptop and format it.
If you don't know how to format just ask again here.

Can someone provide me online recovery disk of gateway 7330gz


You must set the boot sequence of the system to cd/dvd rom first which will enable the system to look for booting files in the disc in the first instance.

In your case your system is booting direct from hard disk. Boot sequence can be changed ib the bios setup of your system.

In some laptop models the restore files can be accessed by pressing function keys while system starting.
