Question about Gateway Essential 500 PC Desktop
This pc was put in storage for 3 yrs. NOT moved or anything...just didnt use..purchased new pc...wanting to give gateway pc to daughter...Cannot get it to start up...tried restoration cd...to no avail...
When starting up pc...Gateway logo comes up...but windows doesnt load..tried loading windows 98 and get a system error...cannot load windows cd...hard disk drive is not working properly...
Without the windows cd in...when I turn the pc on...it just says missing operating system.
What is the original OS? If it's XP you can't install 98 over the top of it without formatting it to FAT32 first.
