Question about Gateway Computers & Internet
Alright. I had disabled the media card and got the screen working again. HOWEVER! Something popped on my LAPTOP'S Screen after the ''Gateway'' logo prompts...
''BootMNGR is missing''
Press Ctrl+Alrt+Del to reset. 8-[<
I don't have any disk included with it the refurbished product bought from TigerDirect. Is there any way to get the boot manager restored again? I don't want to lose any of files now by reformatting it, then finding out installing from Windows CD, will still not get the Boot from working.
Mindsynopsis, the bootmgr is a serious issue, it means the hard drive can not boot properly at all. this will lock any further attempts to restore unless you have the ORIGINAL Gateway disks. now here is a solution to get the machine and data back.
First you will need to pick up a usb to sata connector. You can get this off ebay for about 10 bucks or at your local computer place for about 20-30 bucks. pull your hard drive and get your data off by plugging this device to another machine. it will recognize the hard drive from your lappy as an additional drive.
The next thing is that even though you did not purchase the unit directly from the manufacturer you still have access to purchase their restore disks through the website.
there is the link, put in your serial and it will give you support options including purchasing your disks. they are fairly inexpensive and is suggested to order anyway. you will need these for future issues that may arise.
reload your machine with your new disks, and drop your previous data on it.
With the restore disks you can attempt to repair now if you decide and if you have important programs to save. If not a clean start with the restore disks is the best bet to correct whatever issue arose to cause the BootMgr to be corrupt or deleted. But all in all you still have your important data because you backed it up using the USB to Sata Connector

That's too bad you don't have a disc. If only you knew someone with one otherwise try the following
To resolve this issue, use the following methods in the order given. Method 1: Repair the Boot Configuration Data (BCD) store by using the Startup Repair option.
Use the Startup Repair options in the Windows Recovery Environment to repair the BCD store.
If the previous method does not resolve the issue, you can rebuild the BCD store by using the Bootrec.exe tool in the Windows Recovery Environment.
Bcdedit /export c:\BCD_Backup
Ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old
If the previous method does not resolve the issue, rebuild the BCD store manually by using the Bcdedit.exe tool in the Windows Recovery Environment.
Note: In steps 8, 9, 10, and 11, be sure to type the brackets as shown. They are required for the command to work properly.
Let me know how this turns out.
