No CD Part on Gateway 2000 and Internet Explorer Missing

Hi Everyone,
I found this old Gateway 2000 laptop at a church fair for $10. I don't want to pay a too much for a laptop, this should do. But it has no CD player, only a floppy drive and internet explorer is not there, I need to download internet explorer on it and go on the net and download windows xp. Can anyone please help in anyway? Thanks.

My 2nd pc needed to be formatted & system reinstall & now there are drivers missing & not being able to connect to the internet i cannot install ie:- ethernet controler,vga,audio,sms, usb,...


Hi,
that would be the fastest way as it would have the base files need to connect. of course all you really need to get started is the network card. you can download (http://www.msi.com/product/mb/) the network files and put them on a cd/floppy/flashdrive. and go to device manager and attempt to update the ethernet. from the file location(wherever you saved the files too).

hope this helps

I want to transfer all my word perfect files from my 2000 computer to my laptop, however, i dont have a clue as to how to begin. HELP!DIAN


there are a bunch of ways you can get this done ... depending on your computers ...
Does your computer from 2000 hook up to the internet? If so, you can e-mail yourself the files through whatever e-mail program you have. You can "attach" the files to an e-mail and download them that way. Depending on the number and size of the files, you could also copy and paste the text into e-mails ... but this would require you to copy and paste them back into documents on your laptop when you are done. You could also use a file backup service, uploading your documents there and then downloading them onto your laptop.
If you cannot hook your old computer up to the internet, then you still have some options. Do you have a CD writer on your old computer? If so, you can write all of your documents to a CD and then use that to put them onto your laptop (if your laptop has a CD drive). This would also give you a permanent backup for your files .. which is always nice. If your laptop does not have a CD drive, then you can take the CD to a local library and upload them to the internet and download them to your laptop that way. Just let the person at the information desk at the library know that this is what you are doing so they don't think you are uploading viruses or something (a lot of librarians get nervous when they see someone uploading a lot of stuff to the internet and it is easier to let them know up front than trying to defend yourself later -- I have faced this issue before ... ha ha ha)
If you don't have a CD drive on your old computer ... does it have a floppy drive? If so, you can do the same as with a CD, but using floppy disks -- newer laptops don't usually have floppy drives, so you would likely have to go to a library to upload them to the internet and download them to the laptop.
If you have a USB jack on your old computer, you can also use a USB flash drive to transfer the files -- just upload them to the USB drive, then hook the drive up to your laptop and download them. If you don't have a USB drive, you can get one for very little money (you won't need a lot of storage for word documents -- a 1 GB flash drive will be MORE than enough no matter how many documents you have)
There are other ways to get this done, but you will likely be able to use one of the above procedures to help you out. If not, please leave a comment and I'll do what I can -- please include some more information with your comment: 1. What OS do you use on each computer (Windows, Linux, Mac, Unix), 2. What drives does each computer have (CD-R, floppy drive, etc.), 3. Do you have a home network that is hooked up to both computers?

HOW TO DELETE INTERNET EXPLORER RAISED UNHANDLED EXCEPTION THIRD PARTY MODULE WINDOES VISTS


Hi,

The problem lies with the Internet Explorer add-on's that are used with the browser. One of them is corrupted.

1) open Internet Explorer and on the tool bar select tools > internet options > program tab and select the "manage add-on " button

2) In the next window there is a drop down box choose the add-ons that are currently being used in IE and when they come up start with the bottom one and highlight it and choose to disable it.

Try to see if that fixes the problem! If it continues then disable the next one as well. Keep doing this until you find the bad one.

Not to worry, if a disabled add-on is required then the yellow security bar with pop up notifying you of an active X problem with that site. choose to allow the new active x add-on to be downloaded and installed. eventually you will find the bad one and it will be replaced with a good version.

You can then go back and remove the disabled ones.

Find the driver that you are missing once.
If you have founded then upgrade with your cd rom by installing the driver.

This error comes when your motherbord not read properly harddrive.
for that first reconnect both connection to harddisk.Power cable and ide or sata cable.
Change SATA or IDE cable then check.
Pull cmos cell from motherbord for 10 minutes so all settings are factory defaults.
Then when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key then you can see bios screen.
Make sure hardddrive detect in bios.
Set first boot device as harddrive.

Hi, my laptop kept breezing so i took it to a computer repair person, i was told that i need a new motherboard, i been having a hard time finding it for a reasonable price. My laptop model #W650A serie M...


Hi lettrujillo,

I'm not sure what you think a reasonable price is, but keep in mind your won't be able to get one new from Gateway. However, it seems that they run from $150.00 up to $200.00 by googling it. I found one on eBay HERE, that seems reasonable. You can alway send it to a repair person to review it, but the cost would be about the same. Last option would be to contact Gateway and ask for a upgrade discount to a new laptop.

Good Luck,

And don't forget to leave a rating,

How can I setup sata drivers using cd or dvd


Hi, I think the problem lies with your bios setting. Set the POST to first boot from the CD/DVD drive. If it is set to first boot from the CD/DVD drive, then the problem comes from the disk. It might not be a bootable disk. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Thanks, Mike H
