I had a problem earlier before my GT4010 went totally kaput several months later. I called the Gateway company tech and they ordered the disk for me. Cost 20 dollars for shipping and handeling but the actual start up disk was free. Now go figure that one out??? HA But it sure helped at the time.

Very possible depending on the computer as you boot up you will see a message to depress F2 or F8 or F10 or possible the del key to start a system restore. Tap on of these keys as it boots up and you should go into the restore mode....

Accidently uninstalled our CD Burner for E Machine T6412.


If your version of windows has a "RESTORE " function , like Xp pro has , just restore the computer to a time before you deleted the file.  If not , I know that the CD function and Media player a function of the windows operating system,so check the downloads for your model unless you have the restore disk already? Safe everything first, somewhere else via floppy, or cable or external Hard drive..

Windows xp installer problem


Jack,

Do you know what it's trying to install? The status bar at the top of the browser should be prompting you with the name of the package.

Are you sure it's the browser and not windows trying to install something? Run Windows update and be sure everything is current. You may have to run & reboot a few times before your machine is up to date.
