Question about Gateway 838GM (RB838GM) PC Desktop
How do I, step-by-step for and idiot, run a CD I burned Dban onto with my Gateway 838GM old box?
Make sure the first option in BIOS boot options is the CD\DVD drive. If it is not you need to move it to the top of the list (usually the +- keys).
If it is already at the top of the list then the problem is that the disk inserted is not formatted correctly to be booted from. If no CD\DVD drive shows up in the BIOS then the drive is not able to be booted from period

Testimonial: "Exactly right. The file on the CD is in a form that the computer can't read -- too "bundled.""
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

HI, your system has contracted a nasty virus that has destroyed a vital system 32 file that is needed for stability. You will have to preform a restoration to bring back stability and continuity. A good way to do this is to use the system restore disk that should have been delivered along with this unit. if you don't have this disk, you can use a Windows Xp install disk as well. be sure to wipe the partitions and reformat the drive to rid the system of this horrid virus attack.

Use the software winrar or winzip to extract them or uncompress them, right click on the icon and check if you have word says Extract if you have you donot need any software, Extract in the place where you want and delete the compressed files.

Well, I'm sorry it didn't work out for you. It was still worth a try. I have to agree with you. Since it isn't being recognized properly it probably isn't worth the trouble getting it repaired since typically that costs more than buying a new one. If you need to find some good prices on CD/DVD readers & burners you can look online here:
Simply navigate to Computer Hardware > CD / DVD Burners & Media. After the page loads simply click, "CD / DVD Burners" located in the menu on the left.
Let me know if I can do anything else for you (posted as a solution so you could rate the responses above).
