Having problems with your Gateway MX8711 Notebook ?
Freezes half way threw system adding devices
\015 My gateway laptop\015\012had a registry problem which I tried to correct by following the\015\012instructions given to fix the exact problem.After restarting the computer\015\012right afterwards the keyboard and mouse stopped functioning. Since I\015\012couldn't get my computer to react without the cursor or keyboard I ran\015\012the system recovery discs. i did a full wipe after trying to do the\015\012partial wipe three times. the full wipe I did twice. For each of the\015\012cycles of system recovery the computer would go halfway though the\015\012'recognizing hardware' routine and stop. I let it go once overnight and\015\012it was still halfway in the morning. The system recovery program won't\015\012finish.\015
If you made your recovery discs, then call up gateway and tell them you have defective discs, they will send you the factory install discs for free, try them and I bet you will have better results....Restore discs you make yourself are extreemly picky and are easliy ruined if something happens while youo are burning them (someone sends you an IM or email, windows auto updates) with all the hidden processes running in the background any one of them could have caused a glitch while you were making recovery cd's
