Windows XP sp2 won't install

I have made several attempts to install a new windows sp2 os on my gateway 500s but I keep getting problems with "system" not installing and through research determined I may need to update BIOS. However, after downloading update from Gateway and attempting to use floppy, I found my floppy was not pre-formatted and thus I have been unable to boot from floppy. I need some help. I am a definite novice and just don't have time for all this rigamarole.

    I was running Windows XP Home, one of the first released. I've tried to install SP2 numerous times but it caused so many problems I would always end up doing a fresh install of my original OS. However, there are so many things now that won't run without SP2 so I ordered a new Windows XP SP2 to install. When I went to install, half way through the installation it came up with, "Fatal Error An Error has ben encountered that prevents setup from continuing Setup Failed to install product catalogs. This is a fatal error. The setup log files should contain more information. Press Ok to view setup file log.
    Error: The signature for Windows XP Home Edition setup is invalid. the error code is 80096001. A system-level error occurred while verifying trust."
    It then completed the install but would not start up. I ended up having to put the old Os back on just to get it running. I am on the internet with my laptop but not currently with that computer. Upon doing some research, I came across something that made me think maybe I need to update my BIOS before doing the install but I have not been able to successfully do that yet.

    As I stated in my previous post, I did a fresh install from scratch, that was when I received the error. I originally received SP3 but when the install failed, I requested SP2. Same problems with the "system" error and the computer won't do anything afterwards so I have to install my old xp.

Gateway dx4300-11 won't power on after put in


Is the Gateway DX4300 having problems while installing the drivers after sleep mode
or does it have these problems during the laptop is turned on.
Always make sure you download the right drivers for your system.
If you installed Windows Vista after you had formatted the system and now your trying
to install them you might want to go on another system and download all of the drivers either on an external hard drive or an SD card so everything can be accessible.
After you install Windows Vista or 7 make sure that the compatibility mode is selected while installing the drivers.
Most of Gateway drivers are Windows XP so you have to go and right click on each and every driver and change the compatibility mode to Windows XP SP2 that way when you let it install then Windows Update will activate to perform updates for hardware drivers and software applications. It will also get the KB updates for your computer.
This will probably fix the sleep mode and improve it too.

1. Go on Gateway's site
2. Download the DX4300-11 drivers and make sure its directly from
Gateway on a SD card or external hard drive.
3. Change the compatibility mode to Windows XP SP2
and let it run as administrator.
Each driver will then install and then you will fully use
your computer's capability.
After the drivers are installed then change your power options
as it will continue to install your drivers.
Check to make sure that your battery is fully charged and is plugged in
if it is. If not plug in for charging the battery.
If all fails then you will need to replace the motherboard.

Cyclic boot and reboot after installing SP2


If you have the Windows XP recovery disk you should boot into the disk and do a repair install of the Windows OS. You can also press 'F8' before or right after the Windows XP splash screen comes up and tell it to either boot into Safe Mode or "Boot with last configuration that worked". If you boot into safe mode, go to control panel and programs and uninstall the sp2 installation. Please comment back if you need further assistance. I will be providing a How-To on how to recover a system using system CDs today.

Good Luck,
