You will have to download the drivers from you manufacturers website . if you internet connection is not working you can download the drivers to a USB flash drive from another computer, then transfer then to your computer.

Can I get disks I lost to reload my gateway nv55c laptop?

penguintech October 18, 2012 9:36:23 PM
what are you trying to do? if your trying to recover from the partition and it is not allowing you to do so, you may have corrupted the restore partition. or you let the 30 days expire and you have no choice but to reinstall or purchase a legal license. Either way, it may be best to contact gateway for original disks (usually a minimal fee) and once your back up and running, make sure you make a set of recovery disks before you do anything else.

Gateway GT5404 when cut on it says No bootable agentPXE base code(RXE-2.1 build 0.95) what does this mean? Can I fix the problem?

It is saying it can not find a hard drive with a bootable partition to boot up with. it may have lost the boot sector (which can be repaired) or you may have to reformat and reinstall the operating system.

If Windows, run the installation CD and select the option to repair. It may be able to help.

How to reboot my gateway nv53 laptop to factory without a cd bought this laptop used starting to have problems so i want to erase everything and make it like new


The laptop may have a hidden recovery partion which you can access from boot up. Turn the laptop off and then restart it. When you see the Gateway logo hold down Alt and repeatedly press the F10 key. From there follow the on-screen instructions to restore the laptop to factory defaults, it should take about half an hour but could be longer.

Remember to back up any data that you want before you restore the system.

If you can't access the recovery partition then you can use Windows to do it for you. Click on the Start Menu> All Programs>Gateway and then Gateway Recovery Management. In the Gateway Recovery window click on Restore and then select Restore System to factory default and follow the on-screen instruction. The computer will restart and proceed with the restore.

I cant start may laptop after formatting c-drive

If you took the hdd out and format it will need to reinstall the operation system ..If you tried to install the operation system ..but now it says there is no operation system need to reinstall it ..Anyway ..if it starts ..but not boot to windows..Just reinstall the operation system using a boo-table cd ..with the OS ..or the recovery partition on it pressing the F12 ..and choose recovery partition ..(boot from ) if it has one may be damaged when you tried to format ...
Remember to format means erase and form the memory units again ..and not installing ..reinstalling is another issue ..and when you do it gives you the possibility to completely format a partition ..including C in our that you are sure you end up with a clean Operation system ..

I cant access the rest of my laptops memory. The memory is separated into 2 files names acer and data and i cant access 'data' .help??

You are not talking about memory - you are talking about the hard drive. It is split into two partitions, one for the operating system and the other (named data) for storage of your files (pictures, music etc.). If you can see the data partition when you look in MY COMPUTER but you can't open it, it may need formatting. If you format it un-necessarily, you will lose EVERYTHING that is stored on that partition. Formatting can be done with your operating system (no other program is necessary) but you need to be sure there is nothing on the DATA partition that you don't want to lose.

Gateway laptop reset

Gateway Direct systems went "media-less" back in September 2004. In the event of a system crash users could either 1) restore their systems from the Recovery Partition OR 2) from the backup media that they were prompted to create on first power-up -- which would provide them with up to 5 blank CD-R discs depending on their system's configuration.

On the factory load of the hard drive, the recovery partition will not contain operating system files. It only contains application and driver files.
The first time the recovery partition is used, it prompts the user to insert their System Recovery CD/DVD to copy files from the CD to the recovery partition.
The Drivers and Applications CD is not bootable and does not contain Operating System files.
The System Recovery CD/DVD is bootable but does not contain any application or driver files.
If the end-user erases the hard drive and restores the computer using the System Recovery CD/DVD and an Applications and Drivers CD, the recovery partition is not recreated.

This means that you will need the operating system restore disc FIRST then the recovery partition will work for you

Accessing restore partition

Most computers shipped prior to Mid 2004 do not have the restore partition (called PC restore). To check if you computer does have the restore partition, Right-click on “My computer” select “Manage”, on the left of “Computer Management” window click on “Disk Management” . On the right bottom, if you see three partitions (the third one without a drive letter) then you have the restore partition.
The following two steps will work only if you have the PC restore partition / OR if you have not reinstalled the operating system previously.
To get into the PC restore (if you have it) hold down <control> + tap F11, when the computer turns on, I,e after the Dell logo.
The second and simpler option (if you can login to the computer) is to download, save and run the following file . The will restore the computer in the PC restore option.
If both these do not work, reinstallation using the Win XP cd is the only option
Hope this helps. Please rate your feedback!
