Question about Computers & Internet
I have a gateway ne series and when it turns on at first it says preparing automatic repair then it goes to a blue recovery screen then it shuts off
That is because the Recovery cannot access the partition where the recovery program is located. Sounds as if you lost both the Recovery and the Windows OS. If the Drive is working ok, reinstall Windows from the start.

Compaq? Oh, then you are going to have a hard disk partition with the recovery files, so you don't need the disks. You have made it, that's great, because in case you cannot access the hard disk, you cannot initiate a recovery without ordering recovery CDs for your model from HP.
There are a number of ways to do it.
Try pressing F9 at startup (when the Compaq or HP logo shows up), and if it doesn't work, see the key for System Recovery at the bottom of the screen. It will recover, just follow the instructions on the screen.
Also, you can insert the first disk anytime, or boot from it when you start the PC up.
Or, you can use the Recovery Manager software in the PC that is pre-installed and it will help you to do a System Recovery from the files on your recovery partition.
Please rate this answer, I badly need it.

When you hit F12 or whatever F key to go to the boot drive menu, make sure the cd is in and that you select CD/DVD Drive and the dvd should prompt you to hit any key or will automatically start loading for the recovery. Just tell me if you need further assistance.
