Having problems with your Gateway GT4016 Desktop PC ?

Don't have the recovory disc

\015 I tied to do the system recovory via the recovory disc and half way through when it asks for the disc that the one i have is the reinstalltion os disc. Is there anyway to restart the recovory from the hard dr? if i restart the comp the recovory starts where it left off.\015

Answers :

Unfortunately you are looking at a complete reinstallation of windows...you were probably trying to simply revert back to an old date and mistakenly started a full system recovery. At this point you will need a Windows installation disk (perhaps that OS disk you have may do the trick). Put that in and restart the computer and press F10 to boot the computer from CD. Hopefully this will get you into an installation section for the Windows OS. This can definitely be a challenge if you don't have drivers so I suggest you get a computer person you trust to do this for you.
