My gateway nv53 crashed 1week ago . I tried to recover from os installed from factory 4 times and comp would work allday great . Upon restarting a second time the system would go down again . I decided to do a complete reinstall with the recovery discs . unfortunitly it wiped my harddrive clean . The recovery discs (3) go thru the ******** screen and keybord screen and begin to load . when it finishes with 1 of 3 and prompts to insert 2 of 3 I do and it begins only to stop at D:\Patch\Modules\WIncre.003\WOP000180OX0TC1129.SWM with a message Fail to copy file to HDD . I have tried this a few times and always the same result . I made a set of backup discs when I first rebooted aweek ago and those discs also stop at the same spot. This computer is only 7 mo. old and I use it mainly for surfing and some games . I downloaded the repair disc at neosmart and when I insert it I get the message Bootmgr missing . I have even tried to use a set of windows XP recovery discs and the comp won't recognise the , goes straight to bootmgr missing .
Any help would be great .
P.S. I am not that computer savy
