GO into you setup screen and change the boot order to not have the CD boot first, or jkeep a nonboot CD disk inside of the drive.It is looking for the OS on the CD first.

Switched a vista hd to a xp hd and windows will not open


You can't do that, it just won't work. A hard drive with XP installed on it will be unrecognizable to a PC with vista already installed on it. You can either backup your XP drive by putting it into a compatible XP computer. Or you can buy on of these, which are handy. This let's you get the data to your new PC thru a USB connection.

Have problem with windows Xp pro.


You can get the correct drivers from the Gateway website. Use another computer and download all the Windows XP files for that model number from the website. You need your model number of your pc. Get the files for your motherboard, video, sound card, network card, etc. save them to a usb key or a burn them to a cd. Take the usb key/cd to the other system and load the drivers.

This will get your system back up and running in now time.

I hope this helps you.

TRYING TO LOAD oFFICE PROFESSIONAL 2007 AND KEEP GETTING ERROR MESSAGE Error 1311. source file not found:E\SKU0 11.CAB. Verify that the file exists and that you can access it What should I do?


I stil do not have enough information HP model number for the windows (OP) operating system. Your error sound like something missing or curept on thr disk. Is you cd drive E:\   ?   Or is you hard drive E:\  ? Does your cd say that it is compatable with windows 2,000 ?  If not either reload the Xp or obtain the correct version of Office pro.
Do you see any scratches or smudges on the face of the CD? Microsoft can replace these CDs if damaged. Cal them if true.
