I have an old solo 5300 laptop from college. I'm trying to restore to original settings, however, when I insert System Restoration Kit Disc 2 (version 98 rev. 1.2) and reboot, select Install Windows, says it's Preparing my computer for install of windows >follow prompts for installation wizard then screen goes black (but power still on)...and doesn't come back on. I'm a bit computer illiterate - any assistance you could provide would be greatly appreciated! (And the tech people @ Gateway say they won't help b/c I'm out of warranty.) Thanks!

Hi. Not enough information. Do you want a switch? Do you need to FIND a switch? Is it a Gateway notebook? The specifications for the Gateway Solo 5300 do not indicate a wireless system as part of the original unit. See: http://support.gateway.com/s/manlib/Notebooks/Solo5300/8508144/8508144.htm
Most units with PC100 memory (like this one) did not come with wireless. You will likely need a wireless PCMCIA card.
i think u delete some windows files or u install some other version of internet explorer and u remove it after that thets why it created a problem ..NO problem if u know how to restore a window then restore it else just goto to star menu and click on explorer i am sure it will open but after restoring window...
Hi, I can help you with this. Do you have a wireless router? Do you have DSL or cable modem? If you would like to chat online about it, I can walk you through a few things to try. There isn't enough information here in your problem description to solve it without talking to you in some way. I could also do a phone call if you don't have two machines at home. Let me know if you would like to do that. Thank you.
