As far as the guy that added memory , if you do not have the memory cards installed all the way in ,the computer will act like that . Pull the sticks back out , check to make sure that there is not any dust or trash int he connections and put back in . You got to make sure that the sticks are completely in, and the tabs on the side of each stick are locked into the the notches .

How do you refresh an older model gateway laptop


To restore Gateways you hold down the ALT and the F10 keys, then it should show a boot sequence screen, choose HDD boot and press down ALT and F10 again then you will get the restore feature for gateway. If that doesn't work boot into windows and run the eRecovery program.

I have a older gateway pc model 500gr need product key


If your machine has Windows XP on it and can still run the OS, you can retrieve the product key with a freeware program called "keyfinderthing3". Simply Google the name and get the tool.

I got a nasty virus that disabled my ability to start up my windows xp. no matter what I do it takes me back to the screen where you can choose to run it in safe mode.Every choice that I have tried it...


have you tried the guide to trouble shoot the problem http://www.helpowl.com/manuals/Gateway/GT4010/83386

as you said that you are not able to start the computer it can only be solved by using a BOOT CD of a data recovery software, as this CD will help you boot your system and recover the lost data, It will also help you to recover the product key of the older version of the XP version installed

I have just got a new computer. A Gateway PC running Windows 7/ 64 bit. After installation of ONE I get a dialog box stating " cannot execute machnm1.exe - What can I do to complete the installation?...


Hi,
I'm not familiar with ONE, and am assuming it's a software program.
Try running 7 in XP Mode for proper emulation of the program in question in a 64 bit environment when BIOS requests Machnm32.sys which is probably the culprit (Machnm64.sys in 64 bit environments). Both should be present. This should allow you to continue as many older softwares will not function properly in the 7 environment but, 7 has many built in features to allow for this. Your program may not have the proper drivers to operate in a 64 bit system/chipset.

I have a gateway lb3 500 ancient 98se i tried to load xp pro and it crashed i cant seem to even get a 98 startup disk to work to recover it . how can i recover it to load the xp pro onit


Try running linux on it. Linux will run much better on older hardware. Depending an the specs of the system, it may not be able to handle running windows. Try ubuntu (www.ubuntu.com). If it used to run Windows XP or 98 and it wont now, try checking the hard drive. It may be corrupt. You can find hard drive check tools all across the web, google for drive fitness test by hitachi, it works great. Burn to a disk and boot to it on the older machine and do a full advanced test on the drive.

Blue Screen


Is this still under warranty? If not then you'll just need to buy another HDD (hard drive device) and connect that one where the old was. Re-install XP or Vista. Conact Gateway or go to the Gateway web site to see what was hardware was supported for your system.

HDD IDE/EIDE or SATA/SATA II
OS XP or Vista

After you find out the info just install the new HDD, and install the OS. I only recommend doing this since you can't even get into the Safe Mode. When everything is back up and running you can also re-attach the old drive to what is called Slave or CS (cable select) this is more automatic process. Then you'll be able to recover any data missing that you need that was on the older drive.
