Gateway MP8708 Won't boot past BIOS and won't boot into CD/USB/Safe Mode on XP - Blank screen with keyboard dead - Num locks on and wireless light

Somehow your MBR (Master Boot Record) likely got corrupted or possibly your hard drive went bad coincidentally. Simply, you will start your computer from your Windows CD/DVD install disk, then when at a DOS prompt ( D:\ ) you will then type: FDISK /MBR (press enter). Find your Operating System install DVD and start your computer with it, then follow instructions within this discussion: Restore Windows XP MBR without Windows XP disc Alternatively, review my search results for other instructions: fdisk mbr windows xp Google Search

Hi, I'm having a number

I am not an expert but if I had your problems I would format the drive and load Windows 7 and add any drivers needed from appropriate websites. I don't trust recovery discs and have never had any luck with them, certainly not when loading onto a clean drive. If it works ok you could load XP home or pro in a partition if you really need it or alternatively try Linux. A friend has stopped Using Windows completely and has found Linux is able to meet all his needs...

Windows won't start up? Well, try this Download Tenorshare Data Recovery from its offical site and install it. Burn it into CD/DVD, or USB flash, put into the computer you need to repair, Bios setting. It can make sure your important data will not lose. Best of luck Related: windows won't start

I have a gateway mp8708

One of two things are likely your problem:

1) The battery is so dead that it's preventing any power from reaching the rest of the PC. Try pulling the battery out, plugging the laptop in, and turning it on.

If that doesn't work,

2) The motherboard power converter is burned out. If this is the case, unfortunately you will need a replacement motherboard or a replacement laptop.

Good luck, and hope this is helpful!

Cannot find my recovery disk

Gateway has a site on the topic

http://support.gateway.com/s/software/medialess/faq/suppage01su44.shtml

If your system is intact, you can create the recovery CDs, following the instructions.

If not, you need to order a new set.

There is no legal place to download recovery CDs, since they contain copies of the Microsoft OS.

My son bought a Gateway

The reality is, Best Buy will only swap parts. there are other vendors on the internet that will replace discrete components. Google for "laptop power jack replacement" to find options. it takes decent skills to do this kind of repair, so research well.

Where can you buy a GATEWAY LT20 NETBOOK setup disk

not problem told at all, just asking for vague disks (lost?) windows install disk or BIOS setup (there is no bios disk) gateway CD with all driver for the LT20, ask them yet. no oS told are you running old OS? LT20 is called NETBOOK at GW. and all data for it is there at GW, I see it now./ XP a is only supported by GW. (w7 up is dead there) age is 2010, so is 12 years old the COIN cell is dead this old and means can not be ignored, it will fail to boot , dead coin and worse. ask them for XP install disks for XP, and this PC. only they have that if at all, most maker now ban all XP support of any kind due to MS zero support 2014 ended, and XP is virus magnet so they do not want to perpetuate that. (nasty stuff) im reading your user guide now at GW. and reading the recovery page what you call RESET, ( i guess) index states page 46 RECOVERY.. on most PCs there are 3 ways to recover, now. 1-the disks set lost from DAY 1, NEw PC, xp GW installer 2-you made you own mirror backups day 1. and or lost now. 3- and last the XP image restore. page 46 says do step 2 above. then it says Reset your system to its factory condition., page 48 then it says If you cannot run Windows and your original hard drive is still working, see "Recovering from the hard drive during startup" on page 48. then it says Recovering from the hard drive during startup To reinstall Windows and all pre-installed software and drivers: 1. Turn on your computer, then press Alt+F10 during startup. Gateway Recovery Management opens. 2. Click on Restore system from factory default. Caution: Continuing the process will erase all files on your hard drive. there I read your manual to you, most PCs made have the same words, in chapter RECOVEY. (OS) if the HHD is bad all the above will fail never seen 12 year old good hdd me,but still looking for 50 years. click 4.7MB uses guide here https://www.gateway.com/gw/en/US/content/drivers-downloads next time tell what rest means to you. or stated a problem and if there is UNBACKED UP DATA there. and if expensive apps loaded, PAID. bios can be reset windows can be reset inside or reloaded fresh. or upgraded. HDD can be erased that to is a reset for sure infected. Power on can be reset hold power button 10 seconds and release. and more, billions of bits to reset. endless.(geek land)
