Find someone selling the PC or CD on ebay, and ask them to mail or email you a copy.  You might also find this on the torrent sharing sites.

How to restore a Gateway GM5088 to factory settings without the recovery disc's?

There are two options: get the recovery disks from Gateway (if possible), or use a generic copy of your OS and hope it takes the COA key you have. The steps for obtaining the disks are to call Gateway or go to eBay and put in what you need. It may cost you but it's a lot less than the time you are going to use up going the generic method.

The generic method means using a CD or DVD of the same operating system, booting from it, installing Windows and using the COA key on your system. Once you have completed the basic installation you will then need to go to Gateway and download any drivers that are not working or are missing. Do pay attention to the video driver in particular as Windows will sometimes put in a generic, underperforming driver for your video and not tell you it isn't working correctly. Look in device manager and examine the display driver to see if it matches the actual video your system came with.

Finally, once you have the OS and drivers in place, you will need to re-install your other hardware: cameras, printers, scanners, portable nuclear devices, etc....(just checking to see if you have read this far...LOL). In the end you will have most of what your Gateway came with, but maybe not all. Third-party programs are generally not downloadable from Gateway and only appear on the restore CD/DVD set. Without them you may lose the trial version of Office, or Norton Anti-virus, or whatever.

Gateway GT5404 Recovery Disk

The recovery disk is model specific and basically garbage. You'd be better off getting an install disc for Windows or another operating system. Many flavors of Linux are available and FREE.

I have a gateway Model 505GR and I need a recovery CD. If anyone could make me a copy of the one they have we could work out some kind of payment. Thanks John

This is not the place for a question like this. An open forum would be better for this. Your best bet however is to contact gateway and ask them to send you a new recovery cd (this should be pretty cheap. You might not even have to pay for the CD, just shipping.)

Most Gateway systems can be restored to factory settings using the following steps:

Turn on the system and repeatedly tap F11 key (before windows starts to load)

In the System Restore Options dialog box, click Full System Restore (with Backup), and then click Next.

Wait for the recovery process to complete.

I have a gateway labtop an I lost the Reboot CD

Hello, You would need to contact Gateway/eMachines they are now the same company, and tell them you need a new Restore CD, They will send you one for 20.00. However i THINK on most computers there is a way to create the CD strait form your computer. I have a Gateway, go to Start> All Programs> System Recovery> Create my CD's

I need a restore disk for gateway computer

From Gateway website:

Q: What if my Gateway System Recovery CD/DVD is lost, missing or damaged? A:
  • For computers shipped after November 1, 2004 and until January 2005, a patch needs to be installed. Download the patch through our FTP site at After the installation of this patch, the option to create the drivers and applications CD is available from the Start menu under Programs. However the operating system (OS) CD\DVD must be requested by e-mailing customer service.
    Note: Replacement of the operating system CD may be at a cost according to your warranty status.

  • For computers shipped between January 2005 and June 2005, the option to Create my Drivers-Applications CD(s) is already available under Programs. The operating system CD\DVD must be requested by e-mailing customer service, and may be at a cost according to your warranty status.
  • For computers shipped after June 2005, an operating system CD\DVD is included and the option to Create my Drivers-Applications CD(s) is in System Recovery. Access the program from the Start menu under Programs. This backup process through System Recovery allows you to create the applications and drivers CD\DVD as many times as needed. If the operating system CD\DVD is lost, missing, or damaged, e-mail customer service to inquire about a replacement. Please note that replacement may be at a cost according to your warranty status. If all CD\DVD's are needed, e-mail customer service to inquire about a replacement. Please note that replacement may be at a cost according to your warranty status.
Send them an email with model number from tag at the back of the computer and ask for recovery CD.
