Having problems with your Gateway PC Desktops ?

Yesterday my friends emachine ET1331G-03w just bought 2 months ago, due to microsoft software updates issues upon restarting her computer won't start windows due to problem above, we tried to do f8 on reboot and then a f10 to do a recovery management to do a system restore, neither way worked past the problem message, there is no recovery disc altho I have an identical emachine would a factory recovery default disc work on hers or not. if not any ideas here she can't afford a new one? Thanks Hel


Answers :

As the computer is only 2 months old, you should be able to contact Emachines and have
them send you a recovery disc out for the particular model. As the computer may seem identical, in most cases a recovery disc from your computer will not work because of a different
driver or some other small issue.
