Question about Gateway DX4200-09 PC Desktop
I am trying to restore my computer to factory and can get to the system recovery options but I don't have the option for Full System Restore. Someone help please!
The way to restore Gateways is to hold down the ALT Key and repeatedly hitting f10 then it should bring you to a boot sequence screen then choose the HDD and then hold down ALT and repeatedly hit f10 again that should promt the restore feature for gateway.

There is a folder called Gateway on your system and is NOT hidden. Open it and there should be a folder that contains the system restore to factory specs there.

So you have an OEM Windows disc with the activation code? You should be able to install the OS from this. Try taking the battery out for an hour then installing XP. Also go into setup and set the CDROM as first boot device. If Windows installs go back and change first boot device to HDD. If it still won't install try a different CDROM drive. I have heard that some CDROM drives will not install XP. I don't know why but I've heard this rumor. There is also a jumper on the motherboard that resets the CMOS to default. I think it is J1, J2? Try switching that to the other position and turn on the unit. Shut down and move the jumper back. That is all I can think of right now.

If the situation is that severe I would advise completely starting from scratch via a Windows Installation disk, not a recovery disk. If you don't have that disk youll have to buy windows or.. obtain it.
