Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional for PC

1 Answer

Gateway desktop Ok there Pyrhyc, I went to Best Buy in Jackson TN and showed them the email we had, and explained to them what I wanted to do, they pulled up the system that I bought and then went on to Gateway and said the the video driver was not available and they could not guarantee that xp pro would work on my system. So he said that THEY could do it for $129 for me to bring it in and that he has worked there for a long time and knows what he is doing, He gave me a long, long explaination of why it would be best for them to do it. So I thank you again for your all your time and I think this time I might let them do this, they guarantee it or my money back, they did how ever agree that the xp pro upgrade would work, so you where very right. I hope if I have any other questions I can contact you. Again thank you. Katbeck

This is a very good price for Bestbuy. Just don't let them feed you any bull or sell you something, especially something you don't need. There are video drivers for this. I've done a few of these (dv6000) here at my shop, with no probs. So, don't let them try to charge you extra for drivers that you can get for free off the net, and if they do try to sell you something, get hold of me and I'll advise you about it. Not a big Bestbuy fan, if you can't tell. Good luck.

Restore gateway sx2850


· Click "Start" on your Windows desktop. Navigate through "All Programs" and "Gateway." Click on "Gateway Recovery Management."

· 2


Click "Restore" when the Gateway Recovery Management window pops up, which will take the system back to the default factory specifications.

A box will pop up asking for confirmation, click "Yes" and then "Start." You may have to enter a password as well, but only if your particular Gateway had a password set.

· 3


Wait for the computer to restart. A "Restore from factory default" box will appear, requiring you to click "Next" twice in a row. Click "OK" in the box that appears next, and wait for the hard drive partition to be created.

The factory default installation will then be moved over to the hard drive.

· 4


Click "OK" in the box that appears and wait for a second Gateway restart.

Several minutes will pass as Windows "starts for the first time."

When restarting finally finishes, a "Set Up Windows" dialog box will appear. Click "Next," followed by checking the license agreement box, and then "Next" again.

· 5


Enter a user name and picture, if desired, and a computer name. Also, customize the background wallpaper for your desktop, optionally. Click "Next."

· 6


Click "Use Recommended Settings" on the Protect Windows-based dialog box that pops up.

· 7


Set your correct date and time settings in the next box. Select your location in the following screen. Click "Next," followed by "Start" to finish.

· 8


Wait while Windows checks for your individual Gateway computer specifications and adjusts accordingly.

This will likely take several minutes, so leaving your computer for a short time is fine.

Windows will then prepare your hardware and finish your Gateway restoration process, including the installation of Gateway Recovery Management.

Once completed, your Gateway is good to go and ready at factory settings.


hope this helps

I took my PC in for repairs and it came back with a new microsoft windows office student 2007 which is expired and I cannot use my PC. I have my own Windows XP Professional but will not load as it comes up...


Windows and Office are 2 separate products. Reinstalling Windows XP Professional will not get you Office. If you went out and bought Office Home and Student 2007, you should have the box still that has your key on the cardboard insert. Otherwise, you probably had the trial. You can reinstall the trial if you like for another 30-90 days, but I would recommend you go to a big box store (best buy, staples, etc) and buy Office Home and Student 2010 for about $125. That gets you Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. If you need Outlook for email, you need to get the Home and Business 2010 edition for a little bit more.

You should extract the file to the directory you want and run it. You should just extract it to the desktop temporally so you can find it easily.
