When you power on the computer, go into the BIOS and change the boot device order to boot from your cd. Then you should be able to install from your cd.

Gateway One ZX4970G-UW308 ideleted my partition now it will not syart how can I fix hd to reinstall windows 8. I have a full insyall disk that I purchased

U need to create a new partition and then install the software. Windows 7 will set up a new hard drive and I am sure that Win 8 will do the same. Just throw in the disks, make sure the cmos is set to boot up from the cd drive first and follow the prompts to install the software.

From where i can download HP Restore plus cd for dx2200

The restore plus cd only formats the drive and makes a partition, it does not load the OS or repair it.

The set up disk will do the same thing when you reinstall the OS, you can format and make a extra partition if you want, but the OS auto makes a small partition for the booting record.

If you have a problem you need the set up disk or to use the HP backup and recovery manger.

Can I install a NEW 1T HDD where an old HDD failed?

In a lot of cases, the recovery disks you built may be looking for installation files (windows installation files) from a partition that is on the original drive of the machine. Your new drive would not contain this partition or the files. If you can STILL get into the old drive, I would consider putting both drives in your desktop.....and then use an disk imaging software to do a disk to disk clone of your drive rather than reinstalling Windows from the recovery disk. There are plenty of options for free cloning software.....just google free disk imaging, and you will probably find a ton of options with instructions. One thing to note....when cloning a drive be VERY careful when choosing your SOURCE and DESTINATION drives. Your SOURCE would be your old drive with your data, and your DESTINATION is your new drive. If you mess up that step, it will overwrite your old drive with the "blank" data from the new drive, and your data will be lost.

The other advantage to cloning, is you will get an exact replica of your current configuration. you dont need to reinstall programs or reconfigure things.

How can I unlock my computer if someone change my password

This is about user password and there is no easy fix..but the procedure to get rid of it is not that complicated..Practically you have to reinstall the operation system or use the recovery partition to reinstall the OS ..and this will remove the password..reinstalling in either way will erase the C drive partition ..and if you have important data on this partition it is best to try to make a installation of the OS using the repair feature during and keep your data . or if you can not manage , just remove hard disk ..and add it to another computer running same OS..and browse for the folders in side and save them ..and reinstall after that ..
you will need either the recovery partition or recovery disk or boot-able disk with the OS or a boot-able usb tool with the OS ..and the drivers for the motherboard and devices..

You probably can go to Gateway web site and order a recovery disk that was sold with the system. It would be worth it to own one in case you have the same problem again and plan on keeping the computer.

My d drive/recovery partition has disappeared so that i can no longer use the f-11 function to reinstall my os. system is up and running for now. Is there any way for me to restore that partition?

The only way to rebuild the recovery partition would be through the recovery disk that came with the machine. It does a complete wipe of your hard drives (both C + D) and rebuilds the recovery partition as well as restores the C drive back to its original condition. If you no longer have the recovery CD you can call Gateway to obtain one.

How to do dffr.

DFFR: Debug, Fdisk, Format, Reinstall
Debug to check the software is functioning correctly it has some debuging tools to do..

Fdisk can be done during the installation of os or you can right click on my computer -> manage -> disk management then partition... if want to fdisk without data loss then you can use disk partition software

Formating can done to disks directly by right clicking on particular drive and to formate the disk with operating system you need to have bootable cd or dvd

to reinstalation of operating system can be done using any bootable cd or dvd disks...
and if you want to reinstall a software you can just put the software cd or dvd and then there would be an option for that just select it...

How to get to DOS

If you have a boot disk/cd, you can do a format of the hard disk. This will erase all data. You will, of course, have to reinstall the OS again..
