I want to start of by apoligizing if I posted this in the wrong area....please move if needed.

I only have a quick question, I bought a budget gateway PC (DX4720-03).
It's been a few years since I bought a PC. When unpacking this one, I see that there is no "reboot disc" or OS disc. If tomorrow my system were to crash, how would I get my system back up and running to default ?

Sorry if it seems like an dumb question, but I just can't find the answer on gateway's website. All they have is "how to backup your files" but nothing about a OS/reboot disc....

Thank You for your responses.


I thank God for all he has blessed me with.

Most newer computers do not come with Recovery discs. You can usually recover to a factory image from the hard drive (press ALT+F10 at boot) or you can make the Recovery discs yourself using a utility (Start, Programs, Gateway).

See pages 89-95:
