Hello, have a gateway computer thats filled with spyware. cant restore using the system restore cause it doesnt work.
I cant remember how to factory restore our Gateway computer. The way to restore Gateways is to hold down the ALT Key and repeatedly hitting f10 then it should bring you to a boot sequence screen then choose the HDD and then hold down ALT and repeatedly hit f10 again that should promt the restore feature for gateway.
disable driver signature enforcment start windows normally Enter=choose Esc=cancel please email me how to do it at [email protected],sorry for the late reply,my internet was down for a while try holding down the alt key and hit f10 a couple of times on the post(before the windows logo appears). My compurter started to reset in the middle of the boot processs.
if you end up in a screen where you get the option to restore to an earlier date try that,if the computer was reformatted and there is no recovery partition,then you wont get to the factory default,let me know if it works.i had to restore my Gateway desktop to factory settings and searched everywhere. I went on their site and found the owner's manual for my series and it told me how to do it. I had tried a lot of different things; F8 and Repair your computer, Repair Startup problems, downloaded a Rocovery CD, etc., and nothing seemed to work until this method. What they had written for getting the Recovery Manager was not correct.
Alt Gr or right Alt and F10 started recovery Manager Had samee problem for a customer, restore partiton....
For a desktop manufactures in the last 3 years, I went to repair options under the F8 advanced boot options screen...
In September 2008, Soft Thinks developed a system recovery program called PC Angel™ Recovery.
The fast, precise and feature-rich vector design tool has consistently been the top paid-for design app on Mac since launch.
Windows users can now download the long-awaited Affinity Photo, with the launch of a free public beta.
as soon as the computer powers on, keep hittig the F8 key, then select repair, then if you to want wipe everything and start over chose the very LAST option, restore manager. I got my Gateway back running after using his Alt-F10 tip.
I hope this helps Hello, your post on how to restore factory settings kind of helped me, but I cannot find where it says "Repair" It says: Advanced Boot Options Choose advanced options for: Microsoft windows vista (Use the arrow keys to highlight your choice.) Safe Mode Safe Mode with networking Safe mode with command prompt Enable Boot Logging Enable low-resolution video (640x480) Last known good configuration (advanced) Directory services Restore Mode Debugging Mode Disable automatic restard on system failure. A lot of useless searching (much of it a Gateway) and finally came up with that useful tip.
