Can i use my emachine recovery disk on my gateway after i install a new hard drive on my gateway?


No, you can't. (Well, it might be possible, but very unlikely, that it would work.) Recovery discs are made for specific machines. There are a couple of reasons why the discs for one system can't be used for another brand or model.

In addition to installing the operating system (Windows), recovery discs also include drivers for the machine's included hardware (video, sound, media card slots, etc.). The drivers on the recovery disc for an eMachines system won't have what a Gateway system needs, unless they were built using exactly the same motherboard and other parts, which would be quite unusual. If wrong hardware drivers are installed, Windows may not start and give you the famous "blue screen of death". Or Windows will start, then begin finding new hardware and asking you for drivers you won't have (although you could find them at the Gateway website). The discs also include the applications the manufacturer preloaded on the system. Some of these may not work and cause problems because of the hardware differences (a sound control program with the wrong sound hardware, for instance).

The other reason is that a restore disc also includes information that gets placed into Windows so the system comes up already activated and ready to go. Activation is based on information about the hardware configuration of the system, and yours won't be correct. Windows will see the this and you'll need to activate manually. If the Windows version on the eMachines recovery disc isn't exactly the same as the one on the Gateway, the product key on the computer won't work when you try activation.

Rather than try using the wrong recovery disc, see if you can borrow or download the installation disc for the Windows version specified on the product key sticker on the Gateway. Then you can do a clean new Windows installation and activate it using the product key. You can find the drivers your computer needs at Gateway's website as I mentioned before. It's more work than just running the recovery disc, but it will work. This does mean the system won't have any of the preloaded applications originally on the computer when you're finished. But this is not a bad thing.

Much of the preloaded stuff on a new computer is often called "bloatware", which you really don't need. It just slows the computer down, uses up Windows resources, and may be gathering information and sending it to sites behind your back. You can find good free programs to do anything originally installed and install only what you really need and want. Here are a few suggestions to get you started:

CD/DVD burning: CDBurnerXP
Antivirus: AVG, Avast!
Audio processing: Audacity
Image processing: GIMP
Office suite: OpenOffice

Good luck getting the system back up and running. Thanks for using Fixya!

Yesterday my friends emachine ET1331G-03w just bought 2 months ago, due to microsoft software updates issues upon restarting her computer won't start windows due to problem above, we tried to do f8 on...


As the computer is only 2 months old, you should be able to contact Emachines and have
them send you a recovery disc out for the particular model. As the computer may seem identical, in most cases a recovery disc from your computer will not work because of a different
driver or some other small issue.

Your allinone is not compatible with new OS as you have already figures out. Contact the Company..hp and see if they have an updated disc for MS7.....

If you can get your hands on a new disc for the HP AIO's they are all similar...and you can try reinstalling using it.

Go to Walmart...buy new HP AIO.....install disc..connect old AIO....take back new one with disc.....problen solved. walmart will accept all returns.

My Printer Is Driving Me Crazy


Hi, this sound like a driver problem. But then again, it might also be printer cable if you are using the parallel port. I will assume the you are using WinXP and the printer is using parallel or LPT1. Try first to reinstall the driver. The first step would be to download the latest driver for your printer at http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=58123&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us. Drivers are OS specific so you have to choose what is appropriate. Switch off/disconnect your printer from your PC. After downloading, remove/delete your old 612c printer (+ drivers). To do this, start, printers & faxes, delete 612c icon. Windows may or may not ask you to also remove related software such as drivers. If asked, answer yes (this is to make sure to your fresh). Reboot (though not necessary but make sure printer is still off/disconnected). Install newly downloaded driver. If it is in a zip file, uncompress in a temporary folder. If it is an executablwe, doublie click. Run the full install, when asked to search for a printer, decline, it will auto install in lpt1. Soon as finished, it may or may not ask you to reboot. Connect and power on your printer. Windows may auto detect new hardware, click cancel. Go to your printer settings and print a test page. Hope this works for you. Good luck.
