Question about Gateway Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Disk error. Tried to do a restore w/my gateway dvd recovery disks. They are not scratched and I followed the instructions carefully which say to insert disk, restart your computer then follow the on screen instructions. After the computer restarts, the disk drive is not whirring indicating to me that the disk is not being read. I did bring my computer into gateway a few years ago to do a cleanup. I'm wondering if they did something to my settings that is now causing my problem.

SOURCE: NTLDR is compressed

Try this:
Insert the Windows CD (the oryginal one) into the CDrom drive, and restart tyour PC. When the compter bootsagain select an option that are required to start the computer from the CD if you are asked to do so. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console. When prompted type "1" or if you have a multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER. Now you should be at the comman prompt and ready to repair the ntldr file. Now all you need to do is enter the following commands (in order) and each command on a new line just like you see them here:
cd \
attrib -c ntldr
exit
The PC should reboot now and everything should work just fine.

SOURCE: problem with a disk read error

There are a couple of possibilities.

1. The hard drive is defective.

2. The operating system is corrupt.

The easiest way to test this is to run the restore cd that came with the computer to reload Windows.

If you get this error while running the restore cd then you will need to get a new hard drive.

SOURCE: eMachine recovery disk won't work invalid serial keeps restarting

Restart your computer and as its starting hold F8. This will take you into system restore. Choose Factory Default Restore. This will take your computer back to its original state when it was purchased. You will lose all files that were previously in the unit.

SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite L305-S5875; Recovery Error 10-fc12-045d HELP!!

no it is not fried. you just need to find a vista disk and use that instead of the recovery disks. Once you reinstall Vista you should be able to go online for the Toshiba drivers. Make sure you have the windows Vista Key which should be located under the laptop. the vista software install will ask for it.

How do I do a full recovery with the disc


Turn your computer on.

Insert the Disk and choose to enter BIOS, should be F2 but watch the screen to see the right function key.

Change the boot device order to: CD-ROM, HDD in that order.

Save changes and restart the computer.

The Recovery Disk would boot up and a wizard will guide you through the recovery process.

Follow the instructions to recover your computer.

The only thing to try now, is to get a Windows install DVD, put DVD in drive and boot from the DVD, then try to install with that, when you get to installing and it asks if you want to Format, do so, format Full NTFS.

After using Darik's boot and nuke (DBAN) your hard drive will be wiped clean with little chance of recovery. This also depends on how many passes you used for the disk wipe. More passes = less chance of recovery.

Restore from backup
You can restore backups previously created (as stated in the Create backup
section) from hard disk, CD or DVD.
1 Boot to Windows XP.
2 Press <Alt> + <F10> to open the Acer eRecovery Management utility.
3 Enter the password to proceed. The default password is six zeros.
4 In the Acer eRecovery Management window, select Recovery actions and
click Next.
5 Select the desired restore action and follow the onscreen instructions to
complete the restore process.

I need a recovery disk for gateway nx860s, do you know where i can find a free download?


The recovery software for the Gateway NX860s is stored on the hard drive itself. As long as you have the original hard disk drive and have not repartition the drive the information is probably still there.

You can create recovery CD's by doing the following.
  • Click Start->Run
  • Type the following, including the quotation marks on the run line: "C:\WINDOWS\CREATOR\CD Creator.exe" /drv
  • Click 'Burn ISO'
  • click 'Start Creation'
  • Select either CD or DVD depending on which type of media you are writing to and click 'OK'
  • The application will copy the files to your disk, when it's complete click 'OK'
If you are not able to run the recovery application but believe that the recovery files are still on the hard disk drive then you will need to run a recovery on the system being rebooting and pressing F11 when prompted to start a system recovery. The actual recovery will restore you access to the files to later create a back up cdrom.

No Operating System; Cannot Format User Partition - Gateway MX595


Hi,

It seems that you have a corrupt user partition on your drive which is stopping you from doing a recovery.

What you will need to do is delete the partition(s) on your Gateway by using a system repair utility CD. ERD Commander 2005 or Bart are utilites that will allow you to boot from a CD and then delete the partitions.

You could also use a friend's Windows XP CD just to delete the partitions.

Once this is done, you should be able to re-install your OS (assuming there is no physical damage on the hard disk.

Hope this helps.

Can someone provide me online recovery disk of gateway 7330gz


You must set the boot sequence of the system to cd/dvd rom first which will enable the system to look for booting files in the disc in the first instance.

In your case your system is booting direct from hard disk. Boot sequence can be changed ib the bios setup of your system.

In some laptop models the restore files can be accessed by pressing function keys while system starting.

I RESTORED MY WINDOWS XP WITH THE RECOVERY DISK .


If indeed the disk is scratched and can't be read by your CD/DVD drive, you'll have to purchase another Microsoft Works package.

Factory image recovery on hp error 0x4001100200001005 when useing the recovery disk to go back to factory only loads up to 33%


I had the same problem with the recovery cd getting to 83% and giving me the 0x4001100200001005 error. I did 2 things. I cleaned the disk it was erroring on and also removed the ethernet cable from the adapter. I have been working for 4 days on this and parsing the internet for answers. Finally it worked. I don't know if it was the cleaning of the disk...which did not look dirty, or the unplugging the network cable.
