Gateway GT5404 Recovery Disk


The recovery disk is model specific and basically garbage. You'd be better off getting an install disc for Windows or another operating system. Many flavors of Linux are available and FREE.

Pc shuts down when signing on to windows


Windows was corrupted by a bad program. Since you don't know which program the best way to fix that is to reinstall.
If you have some files on it that you can't lose then just boot from a Linux Live-CD and copy them. The boot from the recovery disk that came with the pc and reinstall.
