Hello my name is ***** ***** I will do whatever I possibly can to help answer your questions. I am sorry you have encountered this kind of problem. Are you able to load into windows at all?

If you can please view this link to a video on how to restore windows 8.1 to an earlier date and time before this problem started. Hopefully you can navigate to it. Let me know. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cty6dS0dtTo

My computer says no system restore points created
Tech Support Specialist: Charles A. Roberts, PC Tech replied 2 years ago
That's not good if there are no restore points it would mean we can't undo what was done. What is the make of this machine and the model number please. So far it seems there is a malfunction with windows in general.

My computer is a gateway model DX 4885
Tech Support Specialist: Charles A. Roberts, PC Tech replied 2 years ago
Ok I need you to restart it and when you see the gateway logo push the alt and the F10 key together a few times if that does nothing restart and just try F10. Let me know what happens.

It says the drive where Windows is installed is locked unlock the drive and try again
Tech Support Specialist: Charles A. Roberts, PC Tech replied 2 years ago
That's not good, do you currently have any important data on this machine and were you given the option to reset.
Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I don't have anything really important and there is an option to reset the PC
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I do have Carbonite backup
Tech Support Specialist: Charles A. Roberts, PC Tech replied 2 years ago
Redo the last steps and see if you are able to use the option to reset the PC instead of refreshing.

Is there anything else I can do besides erasing everything on my computer
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I just tried to reset and a message came up unable to reset your PC a required drive partition is missing
Tech Support Specialist: Charles A. Roberts, PC Tech replied 2 years ago
I am sorry for the delay, If the drive partition is missing to recover the machine that would explain why the refresh would fail. I'm sorry to say the only way to recovery or refresh your pc without loosing data you may need the original recovery software on disk sent to you from gateway.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
