Your best bet is to contact Gateway and buy one. There is supposed to be a way to make one, but I do not have the paperwork for your computer. If you are the original owner you should have directions in your paperwork. If you do not see it in the paperwork you need to contact Gateway. Gateway and other computer people have gotten cheap anp quit sending disk with the computers. They give you an option to make it and they can walk you through their process. I have seen this process fail. I always tell the customer to buy one from the company. If you are the original owner you can complain and try to get one for free but the probably will not care. Good luck. I can't fix this for you, but if I helped you get it fixed, please rate it as a fixya. I did more than try, I told you exactly what had to be done.

My windows media center 2005, can't install media?


if you have the OS installed then that tells me you need the sound card drivers. Go to this page:

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=2684&l=en&s=pub&ServiceTag=&SystemID=DIM_PNT_P4_8400&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

Choose your operating system, then go underneath where it says audio and choose the one that says driver.

Download it and then install it and you should have sound then.

My friend left his OPERATING SYSTEM disk at my house and when my computer got sick I Formatted MY Hard drive with his disk!!Being that he also had a Gateway (not the exact same model and 3 years older)with...


I think the problem lies with your dual core processor. Under Windows XP, these processors need to have the correct drivers installed to fully take advantage of the fact that they have 2 cores.
Try downloading and installing these drivers from the AMD website:
Dual core optimizer Processor driver
As always, back-up your important data, and preferrably create a restore point before going through with driver updates.
The radical choice is, obviously, to reformat using your own disk, as this should install correct drivers for all your hardware.

You may need to check to see which "service pack" you are currently on.

See below requirements:

System Software — Windows XP & Vista
  • Windows Vista Business or Ultimate Edition
    • 32-bit OS Installation Only
  • Windows XP Professional or Home Edition
    • With Windows XP Service Pack 2 or Service Pack 3

  • Not Supported:
    • Windows Vista 64-bit (any version)
    • Windows XP Professional x64 Edition
    • Windows XP Media Center Edition
    • Windows 98, Me, 2000, NT, 95, 3.1, DOS

  • Not Tested:
    • Windows Vista Home and Home Premium Edition
    • Although Windows Vista Home and Home Premium Edition have not been tested or qualified by Digidesign, there are currently no known issues with Vista Home and Home Premium 32-bit operating systems and Pro Tools M-Powered 7.4 compared to the supported Windows Vista Business or Ultimate Edition operating systems.

Windows Vista SP1
There are currently no known issues with Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista based on our initial limited testing and customer feedback. Although full qualification with all Digidesign products has not been completed, we do not recommend against updating to SP1, given the number of important overall system fixes in SP1. We do recommend that you backup your system and create a restore point before updating to SP1, should you encounter any problems after installing the update.

I need to reinstall XP media center on my Gateway PC


If you know somebody that has the same operating system disc (Windows XP Media Center Edition) you can use their CD to reinstall Windows and just use your product code number on your PC box.

System logging off as soon as i starts it. Please see details..


Looks like you've tried a lot. Try this stuff.

1) Try F11 instead.
2) Dunno. Corruption?
3) chkdsk /f
4) Microsoft EULAs are much less crackable than their software, according to BitTorrent.

Need systems restore disk for Gateway


Hi,

I'm not sure if you hope to rescue your files and documents but a system restore disk won't do this, it will wipe you hard disk and return it to factory default. therefore you could just start again with any copy of windows XP. You'll need driver disks but you can download them from the gateway website. you can get an XP disk cheaply on ebay.
