Gateway / Mx-6448

Specs: Windows XP
I have executed a system recovery on a Gateway laptop MX6448. All went well until it started to load software application files 1/71. It loaded the first 16 of 71 files (Cyberlink, Office Trial, Java etc
When it hits Wild Tangent GTW0101- Winter 2006 (Windows set-up Installation) it beeps then freezes and stops loading. If I reboot XP loads but I am missing all of the original factory loaded apps and drivers.. Some are garbage but some I need like audio drivers, wireless etc. I am not loading off a disc but from the recovery partition..

Just curious as to what led you to start the recovery application to begin with.

It sounds as though to me you have some major hardware issues and the problem is derides from that.

Google for memtest86 and create the bootable media that will work for your computer. Boot to the application and run it for at the least 12 hours...any sign of an error means that you have bad ram installed.

If there is not bad ram then look for a possible bad harddrive.

This is not a driver problem ( see exception) as no drivers are running during the restore process other than the virtual application caused by the set up program to install for reading the files on the hidden partition.

exception to drivers issue that may come into effect is that XP has always had an issue while installing drivers to hardware configurations that were installed afterwards. If you have USB hardware installed during the recovery...this may cause an issue as the recovery partition can only instyall what was originally there to begin with. Remove all USB andunnecessary hardware during the recovery process first.

Change Is Good
