Having problems with your Gateway 508GE PC Desktop ?

I was wondering if there is a recovery disc for the 508ge. it wont let me do the f11 option to redo my whole computer and start new. I have some viruses that can not be fixed unless if i redo the whole computer over. i'm not even able to open my virus programs. it's like something blocked my system restore options and everything.


Answers :

If the situation is that severe I would advise completely starting from scratch via a Windows Installation disk, not a recovery disk. If you don't have that disk youll have to buy windows or.. obtain it.
There is a recovery cd only for the drivers but not for reinstalling operating system
