Having problems with your Gateway Computer Processors ?

Power to house shut down momentarily now Gateway GT5473E dead.

\015 I can only open to bios and am getting a blue screen saying system32/software unable to open.Do not have my vista disc to open to repair mode.Have 320 G hard drive with partition of vista back up.Can't get to screen to open partition.Storm was hitting so I was shutting down when power went out if that helps.\015

Answers :

OK is it a brand built PC (ie. DELL, IBM)???

If so, the partition with the Vista backup.... is this the factory backup that came with the PC?

If so you should be able to access it somehow through the factory Setup/BIOS screen. There should be maybe an option to RESTORE to factory settings or something?

Main power switch does not work. Gateway Model 300S Desktop. I turned it off due to a lightning storm in the area and when I went to restart it, the unit will not start. There does not appear to be power as the light in the on/off switch does not light and the fans, etc., do not start up. There is no attempt to try to boot up. It's just dead. Could it be the on/off switch or power supply? It was working fine until I shut it down.
