I really did a stupid thing to try to help out a neighbor. His Dell computer got the blue screen of death on it. I tried to make the system recovery work, but that was a bust. He didn't have any recovery CDs so I thought that my Gateway recovery CDs might work. Boy was I wrong! Now I can't even get a Windows XP boot disk to work. When I turn it on, I get the Dell BIOS screen, but then it switches to a Gateway recovery program.
Can anyone help me with my faux pas?
