restore factory settings
how do i restore my gateway NE56R41u to factory settings
On most laptops there is a 'recovery partition' which will be able to reload Windows on for you (though you will lose all your data/settings). There may be (better yet) a Windows disk. For this. just load it in and boot uo and follow the instructions from >"...to boot from disk....". For a reinstall from a recovery partition, did you receive a help booklet with the laptop? It should be explained in there.
Just looked on the Gateway website under downloads. You can get the manual here under 'user guides'.
and it is on page 70. Hope it works okay for you.
