Question about Gateway GP PC Desktop

1 Answer

Hi, I have a Gateway GP6-566C SE. I am trying to have it read a bootable CD but it doesn't seem to recognize the CD on a bootup. Looking at the bios I can see that the CD is supposed to check the CD first then the floppy disk and finally the hard disk. The CD is not checked. I removed the floopy disk check but it stll checks the floppy disk so it doesn't seem to be checking the bios or at least the "boot" section of the bios. Do you have any ideas? Tom

Most desktops will check the floppy drive when starting up anyway regardless of what setting is in the bios, try to look for any commands required for boot selection when you boot up...I have to hit TAB while booting up to select to boot from CD.

Let me know how you get on

No bootable device, hit any key


The bios cannot find any device it can boot from. This can occur because of hard disk failure, a loose connection or file corruption. There usually is a boot menu that you can get to from the bios by hitting some key specified by your bios manufacturer during the POST bootup process. Usually there is some message on screen like 'press esc for bootup options' or 'press f2 to enter bios setup' or something similar. As your machine starts up, try hitting ESC, F2, F5, F8 or F12 -one at a time-hitting each key several times during bootup (maybe your manual can give you a hint). If you get into the BIOS setup screen, look at the screen that tells you what the BIOS thinks you have attached for storage. If you don't see a hard disk there, you have a definite hardware problem. If you get into a boot option screen, try putting a Windows Installation CD, or a recovery CD from your laptop manufacturer, in the CD-ROM drive of your computer and enabling the machine to boot from the CD-ROM. If the PC boots from the CD-ROM, you may be able to use Windows Recovery mode or your manufacturer's recovery disk to get your hard drive working again. If you have any files you can't live without on your hard drive, look into getting your hard drive out of your laptop and into a USB drive enclosure that you can use another PC to try and read those files from the hard drive prior to attempting any recovery options, as some of them erase all files on your hard drive. Also check to see if your PC has manufacturer diagnostics that you can boot into to check your hardware with before attempting any other type of repairs.

Gateway 550mx booting


If it's detected in Bios then it's either a Laser pick up issue, i.e. no longer able to read content of a disc OR the Disc itself isn't bootable. It just depends what exactly happens with a message or not happen when looking for boot files on disc.

Download cd driver for a gateway nv54 laptop


Your operating system shouldn't need a new driver for that. CD drives are recognized configured automatically. You can try cleaning the laser lens on the CD Drive with a CD/DVD laser lens cleaning kit. If that doesn't work then you'll need to replace the drive.

Hi my acer is asking for boot device


hi there,
please make sure that there is no USB flashdrive connected on your computer and make sure that there is no cd in the drive.
It's saying that it cannot find a bootable device because the drive it's trying to boot from doesn't have any bootable file.
If there is no cd in the drive and no USB flashdrive is connected chances are that your operating system installed in the hard drive was corrupted and you may have to do a reinstallation.
Hope this helps!

My laptop recognizes the CD-RW/DVD drive but it can't read any disk.


What Operating System are you running? Drive could be bad. If you have you a bootable CD (like your original setup disks) turn your computer on with the bootable disk in and see if it tries to boot from it. You may have to adjust your settings in the BIOS to set it to boot to disk before the HDD for this to work.

Trying to install windows XP expert on R61. BIOS does not recognize CD drive on bootup. What is the preferred order for bootup?


Change the boot order so that CDROM / DVD is first. Sometimes it's labled Optical Drive. If your machine won't read the XP cd try carefully cleaning the lens with a DRY q-tip.

Let me know if you need any more help!

Boot cd problems


You can't just put the windows cd in your cd rom drive. If your going to change your boot order (to cd), then you HAVE TO use a BOOTABLE cd. That means a bootup disk with all the correct bootable files for WINXP. Same with a floppy. Change your boot order to a floppy....and in order to bootup windows, you MUST HAVE the bootable files ON THE floppy. In your case...the cd. The windows xp does not have the bootable files since it is only used for install and reinstall.

Create a bootable CD or floppy (((from someone elses WINXP pc or laptop))). There is a feature that allows you to do that. Then when you boot to cd it will start windows and give you options.

I have Gateway MX6214 and I reinstalled a clean Windows Xp OS, then the wireless adaptor is not recognized even after installing the drivers


I'm not sure what happened but we got disconnected somehow. What you want to do, seeing as you are using another laptop, is download the software from Gateway and save it onto a cd-rom. Insert the cd rom into the gateway, open the driver and install the driver onto the laptop. This should work. If it doesn't, let me know!

CD Burner on Gateway Laptop


Sounds like the CD burner has gone out. First try doing a hardware search to see if it finds snd recognizes the CD burner. If not it will need to be replaced. Keep in mind that the drive may still read CD's fine without the ability to burn them.
