SOURCE: My recovery CD (gateway 7330gz PC) are no working

I have the same problem with my Gateway 7330gz. My laptop got infected with spywares and it was so annoyed that I have to think about recover the system. So I did it with Gateway Recovery software. I chose the recovery option (press F11 when boot up)from hard drive since my dvd drive was broken. It went well but when it boots up again and Windows XP says detecting and installing the drivers and such, it was frozen haft way through. I turned off power many times to reboot but it kept freezing at that point. I search Internet for help and seen this post. Wonderful! I press F2 to go to BIOS setup screen, use right arrow key to move to Advance menu option. There I use down arrow key to select SpeedStep, hit (-) key to disable it. Then F10 to save and exit, hit enter for OK button. The system boots again but this time it was no longer freezing, the setup process went through ok and continues...I am so happy and type this message so it might help others with the same issue. Thanks

SOURCE: System Restore (Destructive) GM5084 Gateway Media Center w/ XP

So you have an OEM Windows disc with the activation code? You should be able to install the OS from this. Try taking the battery out for an hour then installing XP. Also go into setup and set the CDROM as first boot device. If Windows installs go back and change first boot device to HDD. If it still won't install try a different CDROM drive. I have heard that some CDROM drives will not install XP. I don't know why but I've heard this rumor. There is also a jumper on the motherboard that resets the CMOS to default. I think it is J1, J2? Try switching that to the other position and turn on the unit. Shut down and move the jumper back. That is all I can think of right now.

Restore gateway sx2850


· Click "Start" on your Windows desktop. Navigate through "All Programs" and "Gateway." Click on "Gateway Recovery Management."

· 2


Click "Restore" when the Gateway Recovery Management window pops up, which will take the system back to the default factory specifications.

A box will pop up asking for confirmation, click "Yes" and then "Start." You may have to enter a password as well, but only if your particular Gateway had a password set.

· 3


Wait for the computer to restart. A "Restore from factory default" box will appear, requiring you to click "Next" twice in a row. Click "OK" in the box that appears next, and wait for the hard drive partition to be created.

The factory default installation will then be moved over to the hard drive.

· 4


Click "OK" in the box that appears and wait for a second Gateway restart.

Several minutes will pass as Windows "starts for the first time."

When restarting finally finishes, a "Set Up Windows" dialog box will appear. Click "Next," followed by checking the license agreement box, and then "Next" again.

· 5


Enter a user name and picture, if desired, and a computer name. Also, customize the background wallpaper for your desktop, optionally. Click "Next."

· 6


Click "Use Recommended Settings" on the Protect Windows-based dialog box that pops up.

· 7


Set your correct date and time settings in the next box. Select your location in the following screen. Click "Next," followed by "Start" to finish.

· 8


Wait while Windows checks for your individual Gateway computer specifications and adjusts accordingly.

This will likely take several minutes, so leaving your computer for a short time is fine.

Windows will then prepare your hardware and finish your Gateway restoration process, including the installation of Gateway Recovery Management.

Once completed, your Gateway is good to go and ready at factory settings.


hope this helps

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

To factory restore your gateway;

Shut down the computer,

Restart it,

As soon as you press the power button to start it,

Immediately start tapping the F10 key,

This will bring up an options menu,

choose repair your computer

choose system recovery,

It will do all the work from there.

Also, depending on your Gateway, you may have to use ALT F8

Another way to do this is

Click Start on your desktop.

All programs;

Gateway recovery management;

Click Restore;

A pop up will appear,

click yes and then start.

If you have your computer on password, it will prompt you to enter it.

When the computer restarts;

Click next two times when the Restore from factory default appears

Click OK

Click OK again in the box that appears and wait for the computer to restart.

This may take some time, but another box will appear it will say 'set up windows'

Click next (license and agreement will come up)

click next again

Enter user name (and pic if you want and wallpaper)

Click next

Click use recommended settings

Set your date and time

Restore from Factory Default

The Factory Default installs a new copy of Windows Vista™ on the computer. The installation restores the computer back to the factory installation of Windows Vista with all the drivers and programs that originally came with the computer.
Notes:
  • Be sure that you back up your data files before performing this option. All of your personal data files and applications are erased during the recovery process.
  • Due to the large number of virus and Spyware threats on the Internet, it is recommended that you disconnect all Internet connections before performing the recovery. After the recovery, antivirus and firewall software can be installed, and then the Internet connection can be re-enabled to update the antivirus definitions and perform Microsoft® Windows Updates.
  1. Remove all CDs or DVDs from the optical drives.
  2. Turn off the computer, using the normal Windows shut down process.
  3. After the computer is turned off, disconnect all USB devices except the keyboard and mouse. This includes USB devices such as a printer, scanner, removable storage, or camera.
  4. Turn on the computer. After the Gateway BIOS logo appears, press ALT+F10. The easiest method is to hold down the ALT key and repeatedly press the F10 key. Note: There is no prompt to press Alt+F10.
