Question about Gateway MT6821 Notebook

2 Answers

My gateway MT6821 is down, I'm trying to restore but when I try a repair it says on problem signature 06 "NoHardDrive". What does that mean? I can't reinstall windows because there isn't a drive to install it on.

    Now it found the partitions, but it says "Windows cannot access the installation sources. Verify that the installation sources are accessible, and restart the installation....

    Now, when I go back into install it isnt finding anything. When the Windows restore Disc isn't in the computer it says bootmgr is missing.

The hard drive either isn't connected to the motherboard or it has failed and needs to be replaced. check the power connector to the hard drive and the ribbon that connects it to the motherboard. See if you can hear it when it starts.

Ok what that is saying is the hard drive is not being reconized by the bios. you will need to go into the bios by hitting either F1 or F2 or delete . turn off computer as soon as you see it coming on hit one of the keys i mentioned. it should say entering setup.
in setup you will need to load the default settings..
look at the botom or left hand upper corner. sometimes it will be across the top. look for load default settings . select load default settings save and exit. if this fails you may need to replace the harddrive also known as ( HARD disk or HDD.

I can't get Quark Xpress 9 to launch


Go to: C:\ProgramData\quark and delete all sub folders and files present there.

If that doesn't makes any difference in your case than you can run System File Checker (sfc).

You may try uninstalling Quark, rebooting the computer and re-install it.

If at all you don't get any help with that as well than you can try performing system restore.

WAS MISSING CHARGER, but was running on battery. will not charge battery or power up, no lights. Battery went dead MT6821 GATEWAY


Hi,

All you need to do is be sure whu will need to replace both.

If the problem is with either the charger/battery you will need to figure that out first.

Please have the battery charged of your laptop, and try using the laptop only with the battery and without the charger, If it works fine you will have to check the charger now.

In order to check the charger, please take out the battery from the laptop, now connect your charger to the laptop and try switching on the laptop. If it does not work then your charger is faulty.

You can purchase the accessories online at various portals. I am providing one of the portal information:

Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

Are you running Windows XP or Vista?

It sounds like the Windows updating has caused a problem in your operating system.

If it is windows Vista, press F4 right when the comuter comes on. Instead of choosing safe mode, choose advanced options. This will give you a screen to do the windows restore.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Hi there.
If you bought the laptop new and got no recovery disks with it, then chances are it has a recovery partition, have you go an option to press F11 during start-up and have you tried it?
