Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

I have a gateway laptop and can't figure out how to do a system recovery. I have the discs buty they don't seem to work. Any suggestions?

Answers :

You need to set the computer to boot from the disk by going into the BIOS at startup. You do this by pressing F2 at the Gateway screen, then changing the boot order in the boot menu. then put the disk in and it should be self explanatory from there. Make sure you use the operating system disk first.
