Having problems with your Gateway Media Center 610XL PC Desktop ?

The computer has some kind of virus that won't allow me to use any kind of application. I can't access any internet, and I can't even use small things like calculator, or re-install AVG. I can't use anything without the computer saying that that file is infected or something. So I want to perform a destructive recovery or something to completely wipe the computer. I don't have any backup disks. Just the monitor/hardrive, the mouse, and the keyboard. That's it. What should I do and how can I do i


Answers :

You should reprogram your computer using a System Disk, I recommend installing Windows XP as your operating system because its easy to install just a few clicks. When you reprogram your computer you should have a CD or DVD Drive in order to boot your System Disk from there.

1. prepare your cd or dvd drive.
2. Boot the system disk from your cd, you should set the configuration from the BIOS setup( you should refer to your motherboard manual on how to enter BIOS Settings) or during the first boot, press DELETE or F2.
3. Insert the System Disk from your CD/DVD Drive.
4. Press Enter to setup windows xp
5. Make a new partition, if you are new in making partitions, you should remove first all of the partitions, then make a new one.
6. Install the System from the Partition.
7.Wait until it asks for your serial number.
8. After the setup you should install the drivers.

Message me again if you have further questions.
You would need the full version copy of Microsoft Windows XP or Win 7 with the CD key to reinstall the OS after you format the hard drive.
