Sounds like a crashed hard drive, swap it out with a new one.

Take your old hard drive with you when you head out to buy a new one to make sure you get the same kind (they're only two kinds for the most part - IDE / PATA has 40 pins and SATA has two L shape connectors.

Hope this info helps!

Boot mgr is missing


If your trying to restore the computer to factory fresh out of box you can use the ALT F10 or F12 method that will reinstall from the hard drive recovery partition. I'm not sure of what Vista recovery disk you created is exactly - to boot to windows or is it to reinstall everything?
If you have not been able to load to windows and had available Mfr recovery discs that you are trying to use and they won't work then most likely your hard drive has gone bad. If you try the ALT F10 or F12 method with the same results then I am very sure the hard drive has gone bad.

Windows defender quit working on my laptop. DVD player does not work, so I can't reinstall from the back up disk. Anyway to fix this or do I need to get a new dvd drive to reinstall windows vista


Was the DVD damaged in so way? Does it show in Computer? Does it need driver? Which Gateway do you have? Windows Defender can be downloaded or fixed online.Do you have a Anti Virus that has turned off Windows Defender?

How do I remove windows 8 without uninstalling windows vista??


I'm sorry to say but you are in uncharted territory with Windows 8. It is so new that it is hard to tell what is going on. I would suggested backing up your hard drive and then reinstalling Vista. You will waste more time trying to figure it out then to reinstall the OS.

I have Dell inspiron 1525 window vista recovery reports 5 error are detected in hard drive and memory errors detected on my laptop 1. hard drive doesnt respond to system commands-critical error 2.boot...


your HDD may be corrupted, re-installing windows vista is one option. Your best bet is if you have/ can obtain a copy of windows vista run setup and try the repair wizard in the windows vista setup, the wizard automatically finds errors and missing files and replaces them therefore solving any errors in your HDD. you can also try to use the recovery wizard from your recovery disc. best of luck

Gateway mx7118 says drive has corrupt files cant repair using win


You don't need to change or buy another hard drive, unless you want to install a larger size hard drive.
Boot up with the Windows CD and reinstall Windows.
