Gateway sx2110 windows 8 formated drive c. now it will not take cds or usb to reinstal. says no boot cds or bad disk. keeps revolving to checking pc and fixing

You might need to go in to BIOS setup and change the boot order to boot from CD/DVD before the hard disk. Same thing for booting from USB. If the boot order is set to the hard disk first and it does not find a bootable partition then that's the error you would get and it might not get past that. I think F2 will let you access that on a Gateway. This is a link to to the Gateway recovery page and it has lots of good info on it.

I have a gateway model #q5wtc, its only 2yrs old. Ive had no problems until today i turned it off only to return later to it not starting windows. It powers up says gareway, the red and blue lights in...

Could be as easy as starting in safe mode and then rebooting. Reason is that what you describe sounds like a hung driver. Booting in safe allows the system to relocate the driver. If that does not fix this you will likely need to reload the OS.

NE56R34u gateway labtop: Is said it has no bootable disk? What does this mean and how do I fix this?

It means that either your hardrive has failed, or you have had a virus that has wiped out the bootable partition. When you first start the laptop, watch the screen for instructions on how to get into bios. usually "esc" or "F10" or "F1". Once in the bios check for installed disks. If the harddrive does not show then it is probably bad.

My gateway says "Check cable connection!PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel PXE ROM. No bootable device--insert boot disk and press any key". What should I do?

Sounds like the hard drive isn't getting power,the data cable to the drive isn't connected,or the drive controller on the motherboard is toast(I'm a novice tinkerer,not an expert).

I have a gateway gt4022 running windows xp. When

Probably hardware failure. To test that remove all disks and extra components and try again to boot into BIOS. If you can't then you will know for sure. If you can then take the opportunity to change the boot order and put the cd first and the hd second. Now connect an optical unit and try to boot in a bootable disk, preferably a Linux Live-CD. If you can then the hard disk is dead, replace it.

DOS for gateway laptop model ML6720


Pls try to download boot98se.exe and thereafter it will automatically install itself to a blank diskette. That would then be bootable and usable as a DOS boot disk. If you are running some other Operating System, this page may help you with making a bootable DOS disk.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
