    there is no text on the screen, its the beginning of the install process and it doesn't load properly. I attempted to restore with another copy of Media Center but now during the install I get "missing hal.dll the error code is 7"

    Yes, it could be the CDROM drive. If not E-mail me and I will explain steps to possibly re-install the OS. Usually clearing the CMOS will help.

How do I do a factory reset on my Gateway DX43803G-UW308, I have no disks...


Restore for gateway desktops
The way to restore Gateways is to hold down the ALT Key and repeatedly hitting f10 then it should bring you to a boot sequence screen then choose the HDD and then hold down ALT and repeatedly hit f10 again.
That should prompt the restore feature for gateway.
with a "Restore from factory default" option. This loads the system partition (C:) from the recovery partition (hidden). It does wipe every thing out on the C: drive to be like it was when new.
If that doesn't work the only way to do it is to boot into windows and run the eRecovery program

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

Wont run windows at all. Says: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM


You have a corrupt registry and it needs to be replaced.
Doing a System Restore will do this. Since you cannot run it from the hard drive, you will have to boot from a Windows DVD.

You did not specify which version of Windows you have so I just picked W7 as an example. If you need more specific instructions, you need to give more specific information.

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.

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.

Gateway 4530gz blue screens


Sounds to me like the hard drive is defective. If you are able go to the manufacturer's website of the hard drive and download and burn out their hard drive testing utility. Boot from the disc and test the hard drive. If it passes then download Memtest (free) and burn it out and boot from it and test memory. Likely one or the other is the issue
