How to boot my dell vostro 1400 from usb CD/DVD Drive


Go into setup (F2 during initial boot screen) and change the Boot menu to reflect the CD/DVD drive being the first boot device. THEN place a bootable CD or DVD disk in the drive and reboot your computer. When asked if you want to boot from the disk, click any key immediately.

How to factory reset a gateway model za8 notebook


In general try using the Windows Repair Menu by pressing F8 during startup, after the BIOS and POST screens have been displayed. Usually the option for a factory reset will be inside the first menu choice. It is also quite common for the key combination of CTRL + F11 held down during the POST screen to activate your laptop's factory restore process.

Aside from these options, if you can successfully boot the computer and load the Windows desktop, many Gateway computers have an option for running factory restore inside the Gateway folder under the Start menu.

Gateway sx series sx2110g-uw318 boot menu with AMD E1-1200


It's either F1 or F2. However, once I had a Gateway which needed "Delete". You can try to put one finger on each button and press them successively. If everything goes right, you will enter BIOS and then you will have to enable lagacy usb support, change boot order so that you can boot from USB or CD (it depends...). Hope this helps!

Gateway sx series sx2110g-uw318 boot menu


Hi,

This is an snippet from the Gateway Website.

"In order to access the boot options on this portable computer, press the ESC or F10 key while the Gateway screen is displayed during the startup process. This opens a Boot menu with the option to start the computer to any of the available drives or to enter the BIOS Setup Utility. Use the UP ARROW and DOWN ARROW keys to select a menu option, and then press the ENTER key to start to the selected device.To "boot" (start) to a CD, DVD, or a floppy disk, the media must be in the drive when starting the computer."

My gateway notebook is locked n I can't remember my user password ..help very frustrated ...I tried ctrl alt del twice to make the admin acct pop up but nothing


Try booting in safe mode.

Restart your computer.

As the computer restarts, begin pressing the F8 key after the Gateway BIOS logo appears until the Windows Advanced Options Menu screen appears.

On the Windows Advanced Options Menu screen, use the arrow keys to select Safe Mode, and then press the ENTER key.

After logging on to Windows XP Safe mode, in the Desktop dialog box, click Yes.

Good luck, post back if this helps.

My Gateway 500s monitor is stuck in power save mode


Try tapping the F8 key while booting the computer, you will get the start up menu, choose safe mode, when you log on, go to the display settings, that is right click on the desktop, properties, screen saver, advanced and make sure that hibernation is off, along with turn off disks or whatever , probably see turn off monitor after XX minutes, I make ours 15 minutes (150 computers and servers), I don't let the disks turn off. Choose always on also, not home/office. Try this and see if these settings help.

Is there any way to restore a gateway computer to factory specs without a recovery disk?


That vintage Gateway (although I do not recall a "GC400" or even a GX400--assuming a typo) had a recovery partition that can be accessed via a key pressed during the boot process.

Note all the onscreen insrutions during boot. If one of hem offers a Restore option, follow its instruction.

If not, it may be accessible from the boot menu. Press the F8 key repeatedly during the boot process to bring up the boot menu. Follow the onscreen prompts to effect a Restore.
