Question about Gateway 7330GZ Notebook
I Am triying a full system restore (destructive) using gateway system recovery windows XP hard drive. The disk seem to work well. The problem is that when windows XP setup begins. The computer freeze haft way throught the installation devices.
I have the same problem with my Gateway 7330gz. My laptop got infected with spywares and it was so annoyed that I have to think about recover the system. So I did it with Gateway Recovery software. I chose the recovery option (press F11 when boot up)from hard drive since my dvd drive was broken. It went well but when it boots up again and Windows XP says detecting and installing the drivers and such, it was frozen haft way through. I turned off power many times to reboot but it kept freezing at that point. I search Internet for help and seen this post. Wonderful! I press F2 to go to BIOS setup screen, use right arrow key to move to Advance menu option. There I use down arrow key to select SpeedStep, hit (-) key to disable it. Then F10 to save and exit, hit enter for OK button. The system boots again but this time it was no longer freezing, the setup process went through ok and continues...I am so happy and type this message so it might help others with the same issue. Thanks

I also had the same problem. I talked to Gateway Tech. Just after you turn on laptop push F2, this will put you into the BIOS. Push the Right Arrow key to Advance. Click on that, go down to the INTEL Speed. Use the +or - key to disable it. Push F10 and start the recovery CD. This will work. After redoing the HD remember to go back and enable the INTEL speed.

I had the same problem. After receiving not 1 but 2 CD`s from Gateway my system would still freeze up before finalization. I proceeded to run a full restore and when prompted to remove the cd I than installed a complete OS disk believe it or not from an older DELL desktop.I put the disk in the cd rom before restarting. I had to contact Microsoft to varify my OS and than had to run all Microsoft updates now all is well. Hope this helps you...Joe

I think I've been having the same problem as well. Your computer might want you to place Recovery disks inside it.

I had that same problem with a laptop before, and it turned out that the motherboard went bad on it. Hopefully not, but it may be your motherboard is bad as well.
