    that's usually the job of the requester to provide basic informations like bios link.

    have you search by yourself how to recover, do you have the needed (BIOS1.WPH) bios file, have you read informations on gateway site.

    here is the link for your laptop:
    http://support.gateway.com/s/Mobile/2008/Avalon/1015338R/1015338Rnv.shtml
    if you do not find useful informations from gateway you can try the following:
    download the bios package, click on 9D06W.exe, go to %temp%\winplash folder
    once you have BIOS1.WPH, rename it BIOS.WPH and follow this method with a floppy disk

    Thanks

    I fixed it. I had to buy 3 different usb floppy dive to make it work. The difficult part was to find the write combination key to boot the floppy.
    Thanks again
