    Restore disk and system disk are the same thing..A windows disk with gateways files added,, Restoreing is your last option b4 looking into hardware issue, using a restore disk may wipe out your files. If you dont care about your old files then do a restore/reinstall of windows,,, If that dont work it is a hardware issue

It may be a hard drive problem or virus, try running the system operating disk that should have came with the computer or just buy a system disk and reformat the drive and put windows back on to it hope that helps.

Blank screen on laptop power still on base unit tried F8 tapping during start up


I think your computer's hard drive crashed because if it's not loading up the startup screen there has got to be a problem with the BIOS. If the keys are unresponsive, your motherboard is probably shot.

You need to access the BIOS - press F1 or F2 (depending on the version)during the start of the desktop - and in there you must modify the boot order: put the cd first then the had disk second. Save the change, reboot, insert the Vista disk and reboot once more - the disk will be loaded.
