Hi,

Pls try to download boot98se.exe and thereafter it will automatically install itself to a blank diskette. That would then be bootable and usable as a DOS boot disk. If you are running some other Operating System, this page may help you with making a bootable DOS disk.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Can the gateway ml6720 realtek lan driver be used with the Ml6721?


Probably yes, I would go directly to the Realtek site and download it direct from the source. Use the newest driver.

Try running the Check Disk Utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

I don't have a dell reboot disk or a blank disk to download onto is there anyway to reboot my dell laptop without this


There are actually 2 ways. The first is after you have turn your PC on and while it's trying to reboot press the F8 repeatedly and select Safe Mode. So it means that you will be using Safe Mode to boot up. The other way is to use the OS disc(e.g Windows) that you have.

I have a gateway ML6720: gets into BIOS OK, but won't BOOT


Upon starting up your computer keep pressing the F8 key. You will see the repair screen come up. Choose the line where you can use the c:/ prompt so you can do the following
When the black DOS screen appears type in chkdsk /f /r
answer Y and reboot
The computer will run a check and repair on your DOS system
When done in a hour or less reboot and see if it will operate correctly.
It is best to have a system reboot disc handy if this happens again. I would create one on a CD if this fixes your problem

I am trying to install software onto my MAC OSX and it will not work. Says cannot operate in DOS mode. I do not know what to do. The UM175 says Mac OSX compatible. Help!


I know sounds dumb but it appears your putting the wrong disc in the drive. Kind of the same error if you try to install a windows file.

Plug and play and update.

Dos mode


to reformat, you have to boot from another source like a CD. you can't reformat a drive while it's being used, so get yourself an operating system disc and you can reformat/reinstall.
