The Best Way To Deal With Recovering Data From A Gateway Desktop PC
I have an older Gateway 505GR, on which I have recently installed some updated drivers. This is causing me some problems, because I traditionally save my data onto a network server. This server runs my PC, and a couple of small Mac devices which are not able to read my documents. The problem is that, since I downloaded the drivers, I am completely locked out of the network and the internet, and this includes out of the server as well. I am not able to recover the data through my Mac computers, as they won’t copy the PS files to their folders. This means that I can’t access my data, and particularly some work which I want to use at a seminar in the coming month. I don’t know what I am going to do if that data is lost, particularly as some of it is relevant to my job.
After having a computer virus, I needed to reinstall my operating system onto the Gateway 505GR which is my main desktop computer. I went through the procedure for reinstalling operating systems, including wiping the hard drive, and then using the installation disks to create a brand new Windows OS on the computer. I rebooted, and when the computer restarted, I watched it go through the splash screen and into BIOS, and all seemed well. However, when I clicked on the Windows menu in order to start the operating system, I got a message saying that there was a Missing or Corrupt HAL.dll. I put the recovery disk into the machine, and ran it through, but this has not worked either. I can get back into the BIOS, that is not a problem, and it is POSTing and doing all that it should be doing, until it gets to this Menu screen.
