When you still could access Gateway laptop, click “Start” – “All Programs” – “Gateway Recovery Centre”, and there is “System Recovery”. Click it and laptop would automatically enter system restore interface.

2. Restore Gateway laptop in Windows safe mode

Start Gateway laptop, and when you see “Gateway” logo, keep on pressing F8. And choose “Restore Computer” in pop-up menu. System restore window appears. Click Next and follow wizard to restore laptop to default settings.


  1. There are no settings directly for “Restore to factory settings”, only system backup and restore available.
