I had the same issue with recovery disks


I think you frommatted your Harddrive, if you have bootable disk , put in your computer , it will gives you C:\ or D:\ drive just write FDISK
& follow the instruction, after formatted , put your windowx XP Cd for installation , your window will install soon, if you have miss any drive , download from internet.
goto "Google" write your specific driver name & download from internet.

My acerlaptopkeeps saying windows has detected


that is a very serious problem, since the filesystem is the base of the format of your HDD. I suggest you get a good wipe of your system to factory, by using recovery disks, installation disks or recovery partitions on some or most OEM machines. However, if you have important information that you can't manage to lose, you should check this and this

For the psswords i can recomend to reset them from BIOS but to do that you must first know them. The problem with recovery disks is solvable if you boot from an XP disc and format the C: partition in NTFS file sistem and when it starts copying files to install the windows stop the installation ( F3 or press the power button for more than 4 seconds.. don't worry you will not sustain disk damage... done it myself with the same notebook for a dozen times ) After formatting the partition C: try recovery again and it will work.
NOTE: for the formatting of the partition you must set the HDD mode from AHCI to ATA witch permits the XP setup utility to "see" the HDD. If it is set in AHCI mode the setup utility for windows XP will not detect youre HDD

No Operating System; Cannot Format User Partition - Gateway MX595


Hi,

It seems that you have a corrupt user partition on your drive which is stopping you from doing a recovery.

What you will need to do is delete the partition(s) on your Gateway by using a system repair utility CD. ERD Commander 2005 or Bart are utilites that will allow you to boot from a CD and then delete the partitions.

You could also use a friend's Windows XP CD just to delete the partitions.

Once this is done, you should be able to re-install your OS (assuming there is no physical damage on the hard disk.

Hope this helps.

I need recovery partition dont have disk


if you saying you can't re-install you computer cause you missing the recovery partition meaning you or someone has formatted the entire drive and you havn't made a set of recovery disks, then the best thing you can do is borrow a disk with the same version of windows you running when you first got it being window xp home or xp pro then you can use the product number that came with your computer on the badge, to re-install it unfortunately you will then have to get the rest the drivers that windows will not detect in start up for your hardware but most can downloaded off the net.

A couple of solutions for this,,,,

First when did you do you SP2 windows updates?
if running XP then you will need SP2 for the devices to function and with the correct informations.
Try this one first and reboot,
restart and test

If not you may have to ....
format this unit and a fresh install will take away all your problems,dont for get the updates for your drivers,

Very staright forward if you got the disk
or a restore from a partition on the recovery image,back up disk?

What OS are you runnig thanks
