Question about Gateway Computers & Internet
SX2185-UD37 mfg 8/17/13 I was tring to load Windows 10 & got lost???????
Hey man ~ been there, done that... Here is what I recommend:
From a DIFFERENT WORKING system find (and download) ALL of your drivers to a TEMP folder. Also fetch your favorite tools, Chrome and Firefox installers (small programs (and such))... Copy ALL of that to a new CD! BE SURE you include the latest NETWORK and WiFi Drivers you can find!
*** This is almost MANDATORY because there are SO many mfgs/models/and software (98-XP-Win7 etc etc) that we can't hope that WINDOWS will have ALL of them on your Windows Install disk!! ***
You will need a BOOKABLE CD Version of Windows. The bummer IS ~ sometimes MS DEMANDS that a older version of Windows is installed FIRST! NO fun... Find another "standalone" Windows installer. I am fairly sure YOU need a 64-Bit version!? Be sure you have the correct one!
Next TOTALLY REFORMAT your Laptop Drive and DO NOT be tempted to use the "Quick Format"! The SLOWER method CHECKS EACH SECTOR for quality as it Formats and IF any errors are found... they are marked BAD and formatting occurs around them!
NOW proceed to install Windows (7 is MY FAVORITE WORKHORSE). Use your DRIVER CD to satisfy/install missing drivers!
IF you have not experienced the unhappy/frustrating feelings of WINDOWS 10 ~ trust me ~ you won't have fun with it because it's another MS "PIG" like Millennium, VISTA, 8, 8.1 and SO many others! (By the way ~ what happened to Windows 9)?
Before EVERYTHING is back just as you like and UPDATED... YOU have a serious choice...
Your System was provided with a 500GB Drive... You can buy a NEW drive for VERY reasonable money! A NEW 500GB is $19.99 on eBay is VERY cheap insurance!

Now CLONE your original drive to your NEW drive and SET THE ORIGINAL Laptop drive aside as your "VAULT"! Another day when things go bad, you can ALWAYS get back to where you are today!
ALSO IF you buy a 500GB you can use your ORIGINAL Drive a BACKUP DRIVE!
***Use CAUTION here! IF your ORIGINAL Drive is infected ~ your BACKUP DRIVE is now infected too! ***

Hi, Reboot system in safe mode. It will ask to restore to previous restore point. Try to select restore point before you have installed windows media player 10. Reboot the pc and then try to install media player 10. It will be better if you run scandisk to fix file system errors. Or you can use any tools for fixing file system & windows system registery error like System Mechanic, Symantec Windoctor. Thanks, Vksr.

Are you using a floppy or a disc? Your CD rom or disk may be faulty. If you have another copy and/or another cd rom drive try that. Also reseat the memory sticks. Lastly it all of this fails your hard drive may be the culprit...

You insert your flash drive to your computer USB ports and then once recognize, open the flash drive and then browse to folder where you put the drivers and then run the setup.exe files.
