Question about Gateway M275 Tablet PC

1 Answer

Will not start up after system recovery done with disks.

I was having some issues with my m275 so I asked around and people told me to use my system recovery disk that came with my m275. I did the system restore. After restore was done...system reboot. The screen with "F2" and Bios settings came up and after that then went blank! Nothing! I turned off the laptop and started back up then I get the whole windows didn't shut down properly. I try to start up in safe mode but does pretty much that same thing.

If you have a Windows XP or Windows Vista CD (or if you can borrow one), insert it into the CD Drive and restart the system. Boot from the CD, and choose the "R" for Repair console.

Log onto the Windows installation you want to repair.

At the prompt, type FIXMBR and answer yes.

Type exit.

Forgot password, does not have cd rom drive, need to restore to factory settings. How???

Hi there,

How to obtain Vista Recovery Media and/or use the Vista Recovery Partition on your computer to put it back to Factory Settings.

There is no legal free Vista download available.

Contact your Computer Manufacturer and ask them to send you a set of Vista Recovery disk/s.

They normally do that for a small $ cost.

Also, ask them if you have a Recovery Partition on your Computer/Laptop to restore it to Factory settings.

See if a Manual came with the computer, or go to the Manufacturer's website, email or phone them for info on how to do a Recovery.

Normally, you would press F10 or F11 at Startup to commence the Recovery Process..

Another way I have seen on some models is to tap F8, and go to a list of Startup options, and start a Factory Standards Recovery from in there, by selecting the Repair computer option.

Also ask them if it is possible to make Recovery Disk/s from the Recovery Partition in case of Hard Drive failure or System Crash.

They will tell you how to do that.

Each Computer Manufacturer has their own way of making Recovery Disk/s.

Or borrow a proper Microsoft Vista DVD(not Dell, HP, etc).
A proper Vista DVD contains all Vista versions.
The Product Key determines which Vista version gets installed.

There are 2 Vista disks: one for 32bit Operating System, and one for 64bit Operating System.

If a clean install is required with a proper Vista DVD (not HP, Dell Recovery Disks):

Go into your Bios/Setup, or Boot Menu, at startup, and change the Boot Order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the Boot Order, then reboot with the disk in the Drive.

At startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, to go into Bios/Setup, or F12 for the Boot Menu

MS advice on doing clean install.

A Tutorial on doing a clean install

Windows Vista Installation Super Guide

After installation > Go to your Laptop/Computer Manufacturer's website > Drivers and Downloads Section > Key in your Model number > Look for latest Vista Drivers for it > Download/install them.

Save all Data, as it will be lost during a clean install.

Post back if it is not working we will be happy to help you.
Hope this helps.

Is there a restore to factory image key sequence for the Panasonic Toughbook U1?

What is the size of the disk-drive?
What is the size of the 'C:' partition?

Does the partition spans the entire disk-drive,
or is there between 8GB and 10GB of difference?

If the latter, then there _is_ a "recovery" partition,
which implies that there could be a boot-time option to boot from that normally-hidden partition, to start a recovery.

If the former, then you need to boot from the set of CD/DVD "system recovery" media, in order to restore the operating system.

Hint: click Start
Right-mouse click "My Computer"
Click Manage
Click the "local disk storage" administration to determine the size of the partition, and the size of the disk-drive.

Wont charge or keep a charge

yes, there is an issue with the power jack on that machine and the only way to resolve it is to replace the motherboard. if your computer is more than a year old, you probably need a new battery. it may show charged, but that's because all the cells that dont work are turned off. what you actually have is 70% of however many cells are left useable. if there aren't at least 3, then it will turn off with in minutes if not seconds after being unpluged. you can get a battery (and motherboard) here.

battery: there are two different part numbers, you should check yours to see which one to get

Where can i download sofware of gateway

For your tablet to function again, you'll need the WACOM tablet driver which is NOT provided by Gateway, since they do not manufacture the tablet themselves.

You'll need the following drivers from the GATEWAY site to fix your button issue:

9524572.exe - Gateway M275 Button driver, version 5.01.2600.2156

and from the WACOM site you'll need the Tablet PC driver.
-Go to
-Select your location and language on the right
-On the next page, choose downloads from the top navigation bar
-In Step 1 scroll down and pick Tablet PC
-In Step 2 choose your operating system
-Follow the download instructions provided on the site from there

Window will not reboot after

try leave the password blank.
you know? When we install Windows, it automatically creates an account “Administrator” and sets its password to blank. So try to logon as adminstrator ,here is the guide:
Start system and when you See Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys Twice and it’ll show Classic Login box. Now type “Administrator” (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from “Control Panel -> User Accounts”.
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.
if that doesn't work,then just learn from others how to reset windows password with Windows Password Recovery Tool.

If you are unable to install the software it means that you don't have administrator rights.Its due to ntfs permission ,you must install it with login into your account as administrator..just make one more administrator account in safe mode and try whether you are able to do fix the issue or not.
