Having problems with your PC Laptops ?
Stupid gateway computer!!
\015 I have a new gateway computer and i bought it 30 days ago. Last night microsoft word locked up and so i thought that the 30 day trial had run out. I installed the new microsoft 2007 so that it could run. Now, when i get back onto microsoft word to see old documents, and also to write new ones, it is still locked. Please Help!!!!\015
Start by doing a system restore. If the restore doesn't work, I'm afraid the software has glitched and you will have to remove and reinstall it, losing any files stored in the program. If the files are stored in "my documents" then you won't lose them.

Have a Gateway that I cannot load Windows XP on, but loads Linux Mint 7 with no problem. This confuses me. The XP program is good, can load on other PCs, but not this Gateway. This is my brothers computer, and he prefers XP. Is there a way I can piggy back XP to Linux so XP is running for him ? I'm sorry if this is a dumb question, but stupid is as stupid does. Does anyone have an idea why it excepts one O/S and not the other ? Well, at least I know the PC is okay, but I need some guidance from
