Having problems with your Gateway 310 X (310XSP) PC Desktop ?

On a six year old Gateway 310x whenever I turn it on the screen says 'We apologieze for inconvenience ... then offers various prompts for Safe mode, etc. I have tried each one and the same Gateway screen, then WindowsXP screen, then the 'We apologise ... "screen which keep looping. They only stop when I trun of the system using the power button. I cannot find the original Windows XP installation disk to do a clean install. What should I do?


Answers :

Sounds to me like you have gotten a virus or some other type of malware causing your system files to get corrupted. Unfortunately without a clean install disk you may not be able to recover your system. Question though, when you restart and get to your first boot screen do you see a function key prompt like f12 for system restore? You may have the capabilities to restore your computer already set into the motherboard.

Of course the only problem with that is you have to go and get the original **** put on it by the manufacturer. Free trials etc... If possible you can also try to find a third party site that can offer you a free download of the software. This is not piracy if you're using the original product registration key provided by your computer manufacturer. Because you've already paid for the right to use that key. If however you do not have a product key available you've already purchased then you will have to buy a new one from Microsoft.

Well, I hope this solution helps you and good luck..
