SOURCE: Problems loading OS in Gateway desktop

Normally installing the os on a different mechine, and then putting into another pc dosent work.

If the hardrive is the oringinal drive, which came with the system, and you want to install xp on, you will have to use a dos disk with fdisk on it, delete all partitions on the drive and create a new partition, then start loading windows, it will give you the option to format the drive for nt(ntfs) file system and setup windows.

If you do that and it still gives you protecting files error, you will have to take the side panel of the computer tower, unplug from the mains and take the cmos battery out for about 30 secs, put the battery back in, plug in the mains and reboot the computer, start loading windows again
Hope this helps and post back if you need further assistance.

SOURCE: My gateway dx4300-03 starts up

By Cyclontech!

Hi, The solution to fix the problem is by changing your power supply. Just make sure that you replace it with a 500W or higher and not with the same 300W which does not have enough power for this system, plus it is defective. I have changed the power supply to 4 diferent gateway PCs same model dx4300. And all 4 are working perfect. And run a check disk on CMD to fix the disk errors that were created every time you unplugged it and turned it on again.

SOURCE: My gateway profile 5 won't turn on. Checked plugs

Try to power drain it. Unplug all the power related devices that are connected, like a monitor data cable or external printer, just unplug all the cables in the back after you shut down your computer, press the power switch of your computer and keep it pressed for about 45 secs, release it, plug everything back and check it if its working. As well double check if that particular socket is usable, plug something else in to see if its working.

My PC starts-up said my name welcome and stays on that scree with the spin next to welcome and that's it.

Sometimes updates running in the background act that way. You can wait it out (could be 1/2 hour or more depending on how many updates) or you can try holding "ctrl", "alt" and tap "del" key and see if "task manager" opens up. If it does, it should show what processes and applications are running. That may give you a clue. Finally, you could just hold the power button down a few seconds until it shuts down. Upon restart, you may have to select an option such as "start normally". If you continue to have problems after the restart you may need to go into "system restore" mode (type "system restore" (w/out quotes) in search box of Start menu, follow the prompts and choose the restore point just before the last system change.

Gateway sx series sx2110g-uw318 boot menu with AMD E1-1200

It's either F1 or F2. However, once I had a Gateway which needed "Delete". You can try to put one finger on each button and press them successively. If everything goes right, you will enter BIOS and then you will have to enable lagacy usb support, change boot order so that you can boot from USB or CD (it depends...). Hope this helps!

This is an snippet from the Gateway Website.

"In order to access the boot options on this portable computer, press the ESC or F10 key while the Gateway screen is displayed during the startup process. This opens a Boot menu with the option to start the computer to any of the available drives or to enter the BIOS Setup Utility. Use the UP ARROW and DOWN ARROW keys to select a menu option, and then press the ENTER key to start to the selected device.To "boot" (start) to a CD, DVD, or a floppy disk, the media must be in the drive when starting the computer."
