    Did your Gateway come with a restore CD? Most restore CDs do their own format.

    yes it did.... and i treid that it still starts funky... wanting to go in the safe mode... but come to think about it it only wants to go back to safe mode when i enable the go back program on the computer. .......... if i run my restoration setup again do you think it will just format my drive again? Would it be worth trying or should i start from the original set-up?
