I have fallen and can't get up. Help!
« on: December 12, 2014, 06:06:14 AM »
I have somehow corrupted my boot sequence, by stupidity, and don't know what to do next.

I looked at downloading a recovery disk, but the instructions are beyond me. I have to download it from my son's computer and don't want to screw his up.

I have a gateway GM5478 computer running Vista Home Premium 32bit OS. When I try to boot it up using the system disc I get a message that drivers are missing.

If I just format the hard drive can I reinstall my operating system.


It is ancient, like me. Two old farts trying to get along in this new fandangled world.




I am lost. I have gone to look for myself. If I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

Whoopie, my son helped me to get my computer back up and running. He also gave me windows 7.
