Question about Gateway Computers & Internet
I wanted to create factory default disc for my new purchase and followed the instructions however, the optical drive keeps rejecting the CD-R blank disk. It is a Gateway DX4300-19 AMD Quad Core model.
Most of the time to create recovery disks you have to use about 7 cds, 2 DVDs, 1 blueray or double layer.
some systems also use DVD+R, when you start the disk creation it would tell you what it requires, your best option (if compatible) would be using 2 DVDs-R.
On the other hand if you inserted the cd and it turned a few revs. most likely it is ruined already so you have to use a new disk.
if it is a brand new pc you should be able to use DVD. here is a tutorial for HP and it is pretty similar for most computers
if it works for you don't forget to rate me
