crystalskang: Will reformatting this laptop will also wipe out the Windows software? I
apologize for the dumb question. I have this exact same computer, but it's
starting to crash a lot (it's a little over a year old) and I'm wondering
if reformatting will help. I'd appreciate any advice. Thanks a lot!
KyoKeun Park: @pkmonbw12 Yeah, it has Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit Version. Thinking of
upgrading to Professional, but it's already awesome :D
crystalskang: Cool, thanks! Do you have any links/articles for doing factory resets?
Xantrucious: will factory resetting wipe EVERYTHING out? Like delete google chrome,
firefox, saved files, etc.?
chowder1528: ok thanks :). its okay now,. i found out, i reformat it in new O.s.. now
pkmonbw12: Nice computer! Does it drive in Windows 7 Home premium?
TrapInDisBitch: Sad thing is I am watching this video on my gateway nv55c and I can't hear
you because the speakers on it suck
KyoKeun Park: @chowder1528 If the whole Windows 7 is in Japanese, sorry but there is no
way to change the language if it's either Home Premium or Starter or even
Professional. You have to have Ultimate to change the language...
evilnitewing: mouse sucks, to fix the sound go to hd audio manager go to effects and tick
the box for loudness
Sam Lev: Vary helpful, I think I might get this. Thanks!
KyoKeun Park: You gotta go to recovery mode (that, you have to Google it cuz I forgot...)
and you should see factory reset option
Michael Lopez: @kyokeun Yeah thats what it must be. I went to my local best buy and
noticed that all the gateway laptops had it. My brother's laptop (which is
2 yrs old) doesn't have it though. It's not too bad but it does make photos
look weird. When I'm playing a game like GTA IV I don't notice it.
AntheaPicciano: I'm typing this on a NV55C. Haaa.
evilnitewing: the mouse on this thing is crap
chowder1528: @kyokeun thanks :)
Michael Lopez: My laptop looks just like yours but its the Gateway NV55S04U with amd quad
core. I just got it last week and I noticed that the screen shows faint
vertical lines (especially on areas that are white or on lighter colors)
it's almost like you can see the little spaces between each pixel. Do you
have this issue or this how it's supposed be. Other than that, the laptop
is great and exceeds the recommended requirements for a lot of games like
KyoKeun Park: I also find it too small for my liking :P and the track pad isn't its
Anasazi1: The mouse does suck. I don't know how many times it's done crazy stuff like
page returns or scrolling when barely touching it. It very annoying.
KyoKeun Park: @TrapInDisBitch Yeah... It's not really that great... But I think you get
what you paid for
KyoKeun Park: @chowder1528 Glad it's working :D
aryanna bouie: i have this im on it now its amazing i love it..!!
hiddenprograms101: LOL I have the same laptop :P
KyoKeun Park: @michael85225 Do you mean like pixelation? Pixelation can cause those
problems. And yes, I can see those line too but for me, it was just an
KyoKeun Park: I think reformatting should help but in my opinion, I think you should just
factory reset your computer. Not only that will format your computer, but
also makes the windows fresh :)
KyoKeun Park: @Xantrucious yes, factory resetting will wipe everything that you installed
on it. That includes settings that you adjusted and such. So I recommend
you to backup important data.
chowder1528: we have the same model.. but mine is japanese., dont know how to change the
language., can someone help me please., :) thanks
