You can call Gateway and order a replacement CD for $30 or so. If you have a friend with an Operating System disk, borrow it. As computer turns on, press key to enter BIOS (usually F2) and find where it says "Boot Order". Set the CD drive to boot first. restart the computer, Press any key when prompted. Use the COA label on your computer for a serial number. Being a Gateway, you will need an OEM disk for this, but can be any OEM. You will have to change the product key on activation. Do not tell Microsoft you used a different CD, or they will blacklist you. Once the activation is complete, your COA should work fine.

Comp frozen.will not connect to windows 7..error while initializing the NIC


PXE ROM boot is a network boot that kicks in when all else fails. If you have or can borrow a Win7 boot disk, watch the screen closely when powering on the computer and it will tell you which key or keys to press to force a boot from the the cd/dvd rom. If you can boot from the optical drive , it may give you the option to repair Windows. READ THE SCREENS CAREFULLY AND CHOOSE WISELY - if you do not you can overwrite windows and ALL of your personal data. IF you have a hard disk failure, windows should tell you so...

Now you need to repair your harddrive boot record.
For that insert vista disk into computer then when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or del or ALt+F2 key to enter in bios .
Then go to boot menu and set first boot device as cd/dvd rom then save settings and exit then it boot with disk then enter in recovery console mode and run this command "fixmbr" without "" then press enter.
Then restart computer and again boot with vista disk this time choose R for repair previous windows then it repair it.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

Cant log in windows!


Restart the computer and as soon as it starts booting up start tapping on F8 key on your keyboard.
The computer would show you advanced boot options.. select "Safe mode" from the list.
When it asks for Administrator's password, leave the password blank and hit enter .. If you have not set any password for the safemode (normally many users don't) then it would log you on and you can go to the control panel and reset the administrator's password or you can even create a new user profile.
Once you complete the above process, restart the computer and let it boot normally.
Now try logging in with the new password or the new user account that you might have created while in the safe mode.

Let me know if that works for you. All the best.
And yes, Do not forget to rate this solution :)

Regards,
Srinivas.
