Question about Gateway DX4380-UR308 DT.GDFAA.004 Desktop PC Windows 8 64-bit
I need to boot to my USB Drive in order to install Ubuntu to my PC. I have the drive formatted correctly and all done and everything, but my PC won't boot to it. I've changed in the BIOS to make USB first Boot Priority, but still no luck. I'm assuming I have to go to a Boot Menu, but pressing F12 doesn't work as the chat support told me I should do. Any ideas on how else to get to the Boot Menu?

Take the battery out for an hour. There should be a JUMPER near the battery but the position will vary with different motherboards. It might say something like CLEAR CMOS. There are three pins. Move jumper to opposite setting and power up the computer. Shut down and reset the jumper to original position. In setup, CDROM should be set to FIRST BOOT DEVICE. If all of this does not work the first time try again. They can be stubborn sometimes. But this should get you to a point where you can re-install XP. If your computer has Vista installed none of this may work. I know very little about Vista.

You have to repair the installion, When you change the mobo you need to reinstall or repair the os, even with windows, well of course with windows because windows sucks, Try updating from the shell sudo apt-get install update

deffintly sounds like a cmos battery issue. these are very easy to fix. all u have to do is take a antistatik strap around your wrist and hook to computer. you then can tak a flat head screw driver and pop the battery off the mother board. your can replace looks like a watch battery and is very common . ou can pick up at any computer store or watch place. heres a video that u can actually see how to do it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tkBWZOtp2is
