Question about Gateway 7320GZ Notebook
I have the restore DVD and it FREEZES I read somewhere I need to reset the BIOS and disable the hyperthreading.. can you walk me thru the steps to do this???
It is not the HD .. if I try to load a differnt XP CD (from Dell) it will load all the way thru and allow me to use windows ..temporarily ..just wont let me authorize the license.. so I think its the CD from GATEWAY.. BUT they have sent me 2 separate CDs or DVDs and same issue..
you can reach me direct at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks and Merry Christmas :)
Are you able to do a system restore back before the upgrade which I am almost sure you did right, take the computer back in time to the upgrade you were able to do with it, like if you had xp upgrade to vista, you don't need the 16 digit number, if this is windows that is, if this is a gateway computer this of course wont work.

Couple of possiblilities. Hardware or software.
You can go here to get the latest drivers for your system , just put in the serial.
If it is listed correctly in the system , it is probably starting to fail. You can try cleaning the laser lens GENTLY with a cotton swab and alcohol.
Also you can try and flash the firmware of the drive. The format of DVDs change slightly over time sometimes making newer ones unreadable. Here is a site with flash utilitys for your drive.
If you still have issues , you may need to replace the drive. Cheapest one I could find was $179
Might be cheaper to go with an external one if you can get one cheap.

There is no such thing as a BIOS virus. However, there are such things are boot sector viruses. Before you reinstall XP again, wipe the hard drive completely by deleting and recreating the primary partition.
