I need to get a free service manual for this tablet can you help


User manuals are quite easy to acquire free from the manufacturer. Service manuals are generally not available. Google the particular thing you need to do (Ex: brand/model replace hard drive. If there is a repair issue you will need to Google the symptoms, then the procedure for fixing, and finally will need the knowledge/skill/tools to follow the procedure.

What files am I suppose to copy from my computer?


If you are going to reformat the hard drive then just copy any files that you put on the PC that you want to keep like Word docs, etc. When you reformat the hard drive, the files that came with the PC with be put back on. If you installed any software on the PC then you need the .exe file that installed it, i.e. a CD that has any software on it.

Using the Recovery Partition:

5. Select a partition option and click


Next. Partition options:

Recover Windows to first partition only.

This option deletes only the first partition and allows you to keep other

partitions, and to create a new system partition as drive "C".

Recover Windows to entire HD.

This option deletes all partitions from your hard disk drive and creates
a new system partition as drive "C".

We bought the portege tablet version used and would like to completely wipe it and start fresh. I don't see a way to do that. Please help!


If the hard drive is still intact, press F8 at boot up and run the restore programme. That will reformat the drive and put it back as it was when shipped. If that is not available, place an OS disc in the DVD drive and boot from there choosing "fresh install" to format the drive and start again.
Hope that helps.

80gigs partition then reformatted and displays only 31gigs


If there are files on the drive that you need to recover, then do not format it. It sounds as though the computer that you put the drive into has an issue where the bios perhaps does recognize the drive correctly. Perhaps that can be corrected by updating the bios in the computer, and trying the drive again. Or you may want to put it back into the original computer, back up the files to other media, and then put the drive in the computer and re-partition.

What does the FDISK - "DISPLAY PARTITION INFORMATION" utility report? Do you have a copy of FDISK? If the partitoins in FDISK add up correctly, then it could just be that the data is corrupt, and windows is just unable to read. If that's the case, you should try a recovery application to restore your data..

Gateway Tablet, BSOD unmountable_boot_volume


you have to go to gateway and download the driver for the SATA controller then save it to floppy or cd then hit F6 durning install then it will ask you for the driver. This Tablet will not see a non-gateway cd if you have the one that came with the tablet then you are good, but if not you will need to do this for the current drive or if yo upgrade to newer drive. Hope this get you started, I had this same problem and I thought it was my motherboard was bad because it would not see the hard drive during installation. This fixed my issue with the drive not being seen during installation of the OS.
