Restoring your Windows 7 Gateway computer to its original factory settings is a great way to get rid of pesky viruses you can't seem to remove from your computer, or simply to remove old programs and files from your computer and start with a clean slate.
Your Windows 7 Gateway computer will likely run faster as a result of deleting old and unnecessary files.
It's also a good idea to restore your Windows 7 Gateway computer to its original factory settings if you plan on selling it, or passing it along to a family member or friend.

Click "All Programs" in the Start menu, then click "Gateway".
Click "Gateway Recovery Management" to open the Gateway Recovery Management program.
Click the "Restore" header, then click "Restore System To Factory Default".
Click "Yes" in the "Confirm Restoration" dialog box, then click "Yes".
Click "OK" in the dialog box warning you that all of the personal data on your computer will be deleted. Your computer will automatically restart.
When your computer restarts the restoration process will begin. The process could take anywhere between 30 and 90 minutes.
Click "OK" when a dialog appears telling you that the computer has been restored to its original factory settings and that you need to reboot your Gateway Windows 7 computer.
Your computer will reboot.
After the computer restarts you will need to configure Windows 7 with your personal preferences.

Click on "Next" when the screen reads "Recover without backing up your files." Note that after you proceed with this step, you will lose any and all information on your Hard Drive that you did not back up.
Restart your computer after it has finished the recovery procedure. Visit the HP Support and drivers website and click on the option that says "Download drivers and software (and firmware)." Enter your computer model number (find this on the front of your tower) and press "Enter."

Automatically rebooting computer after power failure


The bios settings turn the computer on automatically. I actually have mine set to turn on automatically in the morning before I get out of bed so it's already on when I get up. Watch what you see on your screen as you boot up the computer and do whatever it tells you to do to boot up in bios (typically by hitting the F2 or Del key). Once in bios, go to the power section. In the power setting you should see something pertaining to the modem. If you do NOT want it to power up automatically, choose the Disable option. If you DO want to power it up automatically, it will also ask for a time (day of month, hour, minute). If you set the day as 1, for example, it will power up on the 1st of the month at the time that is set. If you set the day of the month to zero (0), it will power up every day at that time.

Reinstalling Windows XP Home Edition on Gateway 500XL


Do you have access to another internet connected computer that you can use to create a "slipstream" installation disc for XP. It will make your life a whole lot easier, and save hours if not days of downloading updates. Please read this article, and if possible, follow its instructions. http://www.theeldergeek.com/slipstreamed_xpsp3_cd_final.htm
Also, be aware that you can download all the original drivers from the Gateway web site if you use the serial # to look them up. The serial number is usually on a sticker on the side of the front of the tower near the CD drive. If you don't have the original CD with Drivers written on it, you may have to download these in order to get back online, etc once you load the OS.
