Question about Gateway M505X Notebook

1 Answer

A virus took over my computer and had to reload operating system.

After reloading windows XP, non of the original programs are there. I need to reload the software but never had any back-up discs from Gateway. My M505X never came with any software when I purchased it from Office Depot. Now all that works is windows XP, nothing else! Please help!

If all the software is preloaded you will need to conatct Office Depot, they should reinstall it for you though there may be a charge.

wuauclt.exe stays resident in the background and checks Microsoft website for the operating system updates.

Originally, wuauclt.exe is a legitimate system process that is located at C:\Windows\System32, but there are cases when wuauclt.exe is actually a disguised virus, Trojan or a worm.

If you find wuauclt.exe stored anywhere different from its original location, you should get really suspicious and scan your system for possible threats.

Search for the file and see if you have this in more than one location.
Your system might be infected.

My 13 year old son laptop need be reset like new


There are a couple possible solutions to your problem. If the computer will still turn on and load windows, and I assume you are using Windows XP, you can try doing a system restore. To do this, go to Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and select System Restore. If system restore is enabled, you should be able to choose a date in the past when the laptop was working properly and restore the computer to that date. If you want to completely reload windows, you will need a Windows XP installation disc. Load the disc in the CD or DVD player and reboot the computer. You should see a screen asking you to press any key to boot from CD, go ahead and press Enter. You will now enter setup where you can reformat the hard drive and reload windows XP. Follow the on-screen instructions to delete any old partitions, and then create a new partition and format it using NTFS. The windows XP installation will continue after the hard drive is formatted. If, when you reboot the computer with the installation disc in the drive, you are not prompted to boot from CD, you may need to reboot and press F2 or F12 to change the boot selection to the CD or DVD drive so it will load the CD first before it tries to load your original Windows installation.

How to format the Hard drive without a recovery Disk?


What you are saying is like "how to listen to Bryan Adams' music on your PC without having a PC". You are gonna need atleast a OEM edition of the operating system if you want to re-install. The OEM version costs about 40 bucks on stores like ebay and Amazon.

Aspire 5000 lost Bluetooth button functionality


This is a good question. If you have the original disc that came with your laptop, definitely use it. Then, download AVG v8.x FREE for virus protection. If you don't have the original disc, I may be able to assist you in finding drivers for your Bluetooth and WiFi interfaces. I'd suggest the first option as it will give you correctly matched drivers, for your devices.

I hope this helps. If it does, please rate the solution offered. My goal is always FixYa or Helpful, never TFT or IA. Regards,

Computer is infected with viruses


Blue screens as a result of infection mean the virus has corrupted the operating system. You can fix it by doing an operating system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. Depending on the virus, this may only be a temporary fix. If this turns out to be a temporary fix, then the sure way to fix it is to completely wipe the hard drive, completely reformat using NTFS, and reload the operating system, which I would recommend. If you have any problems during or after the reload, then the virus damaged the hard drive and it will need to be replaced.
