Question about Gateway GT4022 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Gateway recovery I am trying to recover my gateway as it will not boot properly. Keeps restarting itself. When I load the recovery disk and restart the computer I get the screen where you type in "R" for recovery but I never get the screen to press "R" for standard recovery, press "F" to format the hard drive or press the "Q" to quit or boot the OS on hard drive. It will just sit there after pressing R the first and the R,F, Q options menu will not load. I have tried cleaning the disk to see if that resolves the issue. I have let the pc sit for over an hour to see if the menu would load, nothing. Opened the tower to see if it was dusty, looks good as I had to clean it prior to this. Any ideas??

    I also wanted to add that I went to turn on the pc and it will not detect the monitor. This is an issue I had in the past, cleaned out all dust and it resolved the issue. I also know that it is not the monitor as it works great on my other pc. So I know it is something in the pc. Anyway, know I cant even get a screen up to try recovery again. Please help!!

    Well apparently I still have a dust issue as I used can air to clean and the monitor turns on again. Unfortunelty still sits on the please wait screen in system recovery.

I need to restore it to factory settings.


If you don't have a recovery disk, which they usually don't provide anymore, you can make one if the computer is still working properly. Type" recovery disk" into help & it should walk you thru it. Otherwise you can call or email the maker of the computer, which I think is gateway & order one. Then put it in the computer, restart & it should walk itself thru. You make have to go to setup when the computer first boots up & make sure it goes to the dvd drive first.

When It goes to loading screen it restarts


It is becasue of your computer is not properly shut down and so your harddisk has some bed indexing of memory location.
For that you need winxp disk or recovery disk.
Then boot your computer with that disk .
You have to set first boot device as your cd or dvd rom.;
For that when you power up press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios .
Then go to boot option then sewt first boot device as your cd or dvd rom.
then save settings then put winxp or recovery disk in rom.
Then follow the procedure .
Then enter in recovery console then type in prompt "chkdsk /r"
then it fix error on harddisk.
Sometimes this command fix eror and then after restart windows load normally but sometimes need to repair windows.
So after check this if still face issue just chose "r" when it finds your previous version of windows then it recovers your windows.

Let me know if you need more assistanse.
Thanks.

I NEED A RECOVERY DISC FOR GATEWAY LAP TOP IT HAS WINDOWS VISTA HOME PREMIUM IT IS BRAND NEW I DOWN LOADED A PROGAM IT MESSED IT UP


a lot of computers don't come with a recovery disk.
The System Recovery Options menu in Windows contains several tools that can help you recover Windows from a serious error. You can perform repairs to the files that Windows uses to start itself, perform a restore operation using System Restore, and restore your entire computer and system files using backups that you have made previously.
Note
  • If your computer does not include the System Recovery Options menu, your computer manufacturer might have provided other recovery options. Check the information that came with your computer or go to the manufacturer's website for more information.
  • If your computer has preinstalled recovery options:
    1. Remove all floppy disks, CDs, and DVDs from your computer, and then restart your computer.
      Click the Start button getcontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=signed1, click the arrow next to the Lock button getcontent.aspx?assetid=eb058ccf-b21e-4dfe-9bb7-1ad6c83b705c&documentset=en-us&renderkey=signed1, and then click Restart.
    2. Do one of the following:
      • If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you will need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.
      • If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system you want to repair, and then press and hold F8.
    3. On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight Repair your computer, and then press ENTER. (If Repair your computer is not listed as an option, then your computer does not include the System Recovery Options menu as a preinstalled recovery option.)
    4. Select a keyboard layout, and then click Next.
    5. Select a user name and enter the password, and then click OK.
    6. On the System Recovery Options menu, click a tool to open it.
    7. i hope that this will help you.
