Are you using Windows Vista? You can fix this problem bt using your installation dvd. After the first couple of scrrens, you will get an option to REPAIR the installation. You should get a functioning system after that.

How do I do a factory reset on my Gateway DX43803G-UW308, I have no disks...

Restore for gateway desktops
The way to restore Gateways is to hold down the ALT Key and repeatedly hitting f10 then it should bring you to a boot sequence screen then choose the HDD and then hold down ALT and repeatedly hit f10 again.
That should prompt the restore feature for gateway.
with a "Restore from factory default" option. This loads the system partition (C:) from the recovery partition (hidden). It does wipe every thing out on the C: drive to be like it was when new.
If that doesn't work the only way to do it is to boot into windows and run the eRecovery program

I have a gateway netbook LT20 series with Ubuntu 11.04 operating system and I want to restore it back to factory settings

If you still have the windows OS on there, start your laptop and press F8 until the restore, repair screen shows, then run restore. That should do it.

I need to know how to get the bottom off my laptop so i can get to the power button and fix the sensor underneat it. i removed all the screws on the bottom yet it wont come off. myl aptop is a gateway...

the bottom doesn't come have to remove the cover on the screen hinge and remove the keyboard and monitor to isolate the "bottom" of the unit. After you have removed the panel on the hinge, you can unscrew the keyboard and detach the screen. At this point the bottom can be removed by taking off the main boards and other connected components.

Wont bootup at all keeps saying BOOTMRG is missing

  1. Boot off the Windows Vista DVD
  2. Click Next at the first prompt select the language and click next.
  3. Select the link in the lower left-hand side for "Repair your computer"
  4. The installation process will attempt to find your Vista installation directory.( If there's more than one in the list, select the correct one and then use the Next button again.)
  5. Click the first link for "Startup Repair" (Or the last link "command prompt" if you want to use the alternative method as described below)
  6. The installation process will repair the system, and then prompt for you to reboot.

Alternatively you can choose the Command Prompt option instead to fix the boot only:
  1. Follow step 1-4 above
  2. on step 5 choose The last link "Command prompt"
  3. type bootrec /fixboot and hit enter.(space between bootrec and / )
  4. The installation process will repair the boot sector.

Bootmgr is missing

Run a Chkdsk:
Take the Windows XP disk. Boot from it, then DO NOT select F2 (automated system recovery) but continue through the procedure until you get to the point where you can choose between installing Windows XP and entering the Recovery Console. Once you get into the Recovery Console, do chkdsk and fix potential errors on your disks! Chkdsk C: /R


Perform an XP repair:
When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your Applications or data; it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
