Accessing Hard Drive On Hp Touchscreen Desktop

I have an HP Pavilion fx2000 touch screen. A while back it started to give me this problem 0xc0000098. How do I fix it?

I called Microsoft and they basically said "You are screwed and we will screw you further by making you pay $200 to send you a new OS disc cause your year warranty is expired"

When I bought my laptop it didn't came with a disc and was never given one eventhough I wrote to microsoft monthly about it. So no I dont have a Windows 7 OS disc.

When I turn on my laptop it takes me to this screen I can't avoid it or go any further. F8 and/or ALT+F8 does not work and the laptop starts to beep then it takes me to the 0xc0000098 screen.

ESC takes me to the boot manu which I tried booting from internal drives and takes me to the 0xc0000098 screen.

I gave up on getting a windows copy so I went to linux and booted it to a USB but when I try booting from a USB it still takes me to the 0xc0000098 screen.

I downloaded a software that promises that will fix the problem but all programs need to be install in the laptop before they can fix it. How am I suppose to install or make the command prompt come up if the 0xc0000098 screen is all I get?!

I can't get passed the 0xc0000098 screen. The laptop does not load the windows screen. I can't access the command prompt. I can't boot Linux from USB. Everything I do it takes me to the 0xc0000098 screen!

Can some one help me figure this out?

Thank you

How do you access the boot menu in a Gateway PC?

As pointed out by others, the Boot menu on a Gateway PC will show a screen when the pc and tell you which keys to hit to access it.A little background.Gateway was one of the few PC companies (and may be the last one left) that stores BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) information on the hard drive. Other PC makers put BIOS on CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semi-conductor), which is non-volatile memory charged by a button battery,Gateway BIOS has to be stored on the Boot sector of drive 0, so it is actioned first. Then the OS can be directed to boot. They usually have a restore disc stored here too, which is a terrific idea. Not so terrific when hard drives were smaller.I found out about this quirky setup when I tried to replace my nephew’s hard drive with a larger one!
