Having problems with your Gateway PC Laptops ?

Need to reboot laptop but do not have recovery disc's


Answers :

Depending on your exact computer you possibly could go to the start menu, control panel, performance and maintenence, and in the top left corner click on system restore and see if the system will recover itself. If not you can contact gateway at 800-395-3817 and ask them to send you a disk. It may cost up to 10 dollars or so.
You must mean that you need to re-install Windows XP.\015\012As the computer is booting up just keep hitting the F11 key and it should take you to the restore area and follow directions.\015\012There should be a recovery partition on your hard drive to re- image Windows if the laptop has the original hard drive.
