From the symptoms you mentioned you have a bad battery. Only way to fix that is to get a new battery. You can find some on ebay or other auction sites.

Hard drive issue

This tells you that the drive has a problem and may be due to fail shortly.

You can either clone the drive to a new (possibly larger) drive

Save your important files while you still have chance and put a new drive in re-install your operating system and copy your files back

Or wait and risk total failure and loss of data.

My option would be the first one

My hard drive partitions do not open . They show access denied. There is an autoplay choice also, which, when clicked, shows Recycler/ , not found.

this is because u have removed a virus but not removed a autorun.inf file which is associated with the virus.

to remove the inf file follow these steps

start -->run--> type CMD click ok

in command prompt
d: (enter)
attrib -s-r-h autorun.inf (enter)
del autorun.inf

do the above to all drives and restart the system thats all

When i load the gateway system recovery disc i get line 20101 of the inf file \minit\boot is invalid setup cannot continue

Sounds like you have a damaged restore disk. Look at it under a bright light, and see if there are any scratches in the disk. You might be able to clean the disk (always clean from the inside out, never in a circle).

Service installation section in this INF is invalid

If the player is showing up in your Windows' Device Manager under "portable devices" with a yellow "!":

1.) Right-click the yellow "!" and choose "update driver".
2.) When given the option to connect to Windows Update, choose "no, not this time" and click next.
3.) Choose "Install from a specific location (advanced)" and click next.
4.) Choose "Don't search. I will choose the driver to install" and click next.
5.) Click the "Have Disk" button. Browse to C:\Windows\inf and choose the file marked "wpdmtp.inf"

I can't believe the generic players have such crappy support when so many people have this problem! I think the Windows file problem might be caused by "compressing old files" when you do a disk cleanup.

You may be right about the mboard but also try changing the processor or taking out the processor and try powering on withou the processor. If its the mboard then it could have been because of a power surge and thus the mboards needs to be replaced. let me know how you go. thanks
