Having problems with your Gateway E-2000 Deluxe PC Desktop ?

System recovery When my Gateway 2000 computer boots up, the main screen wont load, it says non-system disk is loaded please insert system disk, but I dont have the system disk, how can I bypass it, Ive tried pressing F1 to get to the setup screen and everything I change doesnt work.


Answers :

Your original question, how can you bypass was answered but unless your boot-order was messed up in your BIOS you are going to have to get a new system disk. The only way you are going to do that is:\015\012-Calling Gateway and telling your story. Chances are good if it?s a Windows XP or Vista PC they will just ship you a new one.\015\012-Finding a friend with a similar PC and making a copy.\015\012-Purchasing Windows.\015\012\015\012Good luck
Non system disk\015\012\015\012When a computer boots, the bios will look for any media so that the computer can boot. The default setting is that Floppy>CD rom > Hard disk. But we can change this boot order in the bios.\015\012\015\012So, when the computer boots it will first look for system files in the floppy, if it doesnt find any system file it will show the above error message "non system disk, replace the disk and press any key". So, please check whether u have inserted any floppy in the drive.\015\012If there is no floppy it will go in search for a CD, if there is no CD it will go in search for a Hard disk. \015\012If the hard disk's first sector is damaged(bad sector) the same error will be shown\015\012 Solution- Replace with a new HDD and you have to install a fresh copy of windows.\015\012\015\012If the system file has been corrputed the same error message will be shown.\015\012 Solution- Reinstall windows.\015\012\015\012Solution provided by ShaC
