    you can only if you have a recovery console installed on your computer or if you have a back up from when it was in original form.  do you have either of these?

There are 2 things about reboot that is the reboot from the bios or reboot from the windows... if you mean you can't reboot and there are no hard disk as your primary hard disk try to check if the bios detected the hard disk. by pressing Delete key when you start to reboot the computer... make sure there are someone with you who knows something about the computer BIOS. if not keep in touch.. in Main menu in BIOS you will find If the computer detected the hard disk, if not detected try to check the IDE/SATA cable or Power Cable of your hard disk. Check if that hard disk is the first boot in the Boot section of the BIOS, if not then change the Hard Disk as your first boot.. That will help you boot your computer properly in windows..

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.

My Gateway GT5028 PC Desktop's screen flashes when i am playing starcraft 2. it has a strange smell, and i cleaned the computer recently, what could the problem be?


Depending on whether or not the game is patched it can kill your GPU. The strange smell was probably the card getting very hot. Do you know the model of GPU/Graphics card?

Gateway GT5028 missing OS


sounds like you got a virus. Does it give you the option on boot up to restore (maybe press F10 or alt + F10) if it was a factory install then they have probably made a factory restore partition on your hard drive but maybe not. other remedys are to purchase a restore disk for the gateway or reinstall windows XP (you might be able to use the XP restore feature) and download any drivers you need from here http://support.gateway.com/product/default.aspx?tab=1&modelId=2844 I would download the drivers with another computer or get a friend to do it as you probably wont be able to connect to the internet without the drivers installed. I have them if you need, but you can get them from the link.

Computer won't turn on


Try to change your power supply if you have a spare just to check if your motherboard is still ok.

Add on PCI-E video card doesn't work


I would check the BIOS To check the boot order preference to see if you can tell the motherboard to Force Starting up with the PCI-E Slot.

If the slot did go bad, most likely you would see the system crash instead of just automatically going back to using the onboard video card.
