Question about Gateway GT4022 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Gateway recovery I am trying to recover my gateway as it will not boot properly. Keeps restarting itself. When I load the recovery disk and restart the computer I get the screen where you type in "R" for recovery but I never get the screen to press "R" for standard recovery, press "F" to format the hard drive or press the "Q" to quit or boot the OS on hard drive. It will just sit there after pressing R the first and the R,F, Q options menu will not load. I have tried cleaning the disk to see if that resolves the issue. I have let the pc sit for over an hour to see if the menu would load, nothing. Opened the tower to see if it was dusty, looks good as I had to clean it prior to this. Any ideas??

    I also wanted to add that I went to turn on the pc and it will not detect the monitor. This is an issue I had in the past, cleaned out all dust and it resolved the issue. I also know that it is not the monitor as it works great on my other pc. So I know it is something in the pc. Anyway, know I cant even get a screen up to try recovery again. Please help!!

    Well apparently I still have a dust issue as I used can air to clean and the monitor turns on again. Unfortunelty still sits on the please wait screen in system recovery.

To delete everything on your hard drive and re-install all factory software: 1 If you can still run Windows: a Click Start, All Programs, Gateway Recovery Center, then click Gateway Recovery Center. The Gateway Recovery Center opens. b Click Recovery, then click Next. Your computer restarts. - OR - 2 If you cannot run Windows: a Turn on or restart your computer. b While the computer is starting up, repeatedly press F8 until the Recovery Options screen opens. If Windows starts to load instead, restart the computer and try again. 3 Press the arrow keys on your keyboard to select Repair Your Computer, then press ENTER. Gateway System Recovery starts, and the System Recovery Options dialog box opens. 4 Select a language and keyboard layout, then click Next. 5 Click the User name box to select a Windows user account, click in the Password box and type the user account’s password (if any), then click Next. The System Recovery Options menu opens. 6 Click Restore Application. The Welcome to Gateway System Recovery window opens. 7 Click Next. 8 To perform a recovery with data backup (recommended), click Recovery with automatic data backup, then click Next. Important Before your hard drive is recovered, your personal files will be automatically backed up to c:\backup. - OR - To perform a full factory recovery without data backup, click Full factory recovery, then click Next. Caution Continuing with the full factory recovery will delete everything on your hard drive. Make sure that you have backed up any important files you want to save. 9 Click Yes, then click Next. The Factory image recovery window opens, which shows you the progress of the system recovery. When recovery is finished, the Recovery is complete window opens. 10 Click Finish, then click Restart. Your computer restarts in its original factory condition. You still need to reinstall any software that was not pre-installed on your computer. If you selected Recovery with automatic data backup in Step 8, you can find your backed up files in c:\backup.

I NEED A RECOVERY DISC FOR GATEWAY LAP TOP IT HAS WINDOWS VISTA HOME PREMIUM IT IS BRAND NEW I DOWN LOADED A PROGAM IT MESSED IT UP


a lot of computers don't come with a recovery disk.
The System Recovery Options menu in Windows contains several tools that can help you recover Windows from a serious error. You can perform repairs to the files that Windows uses to start itself, perform a restore operation using System Restore, and restore your entire computer and system files using backups that you have made previously.
Note
  • If your computer does not include the System Recovery Options menu, your computer manufacturer might have provided other recovery options. Check the information that came with your computer or go to the manufacturer's website for more information.
  • If your computer has preinstalled recovery options:
    1. Remove all floppy disks, CDs, and DVDs from your computer, and then restart your computer.
      Click the Start button getcontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=signed1, click the arrow next to the Lock button getcontent.aspx?assetid=eb058ccf-b21e-4dfe-9bb7-1ad6c83b705c&documentset=en-us&renderkey=signed1, and then click Restart.
    2. Do one of the following:
      • If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you will need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.
      • If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system you want to repair, and then press and hold F8.
    3. On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight Repair your computer, and then press ENTER. (If Repair your computer is not listed as an option, then your computer does not include the System Recovery Options menu as a preinstalled recovery option.)
    4. Select a keyboard layout, and then click Next.
    5. Select a user name and enter the password, and then click OK.
    6. On the System Recovery Options menu, click a tool to open it.
    7. i hope that this will help you.
