does a restore CD work on its own for crashing computer?

My computer has been crashing and wont start so we ordered a restore CD from gateway. The only thing is does it need to be installed in order to work? It wont let us start it because it keeps sayin it failed, so if we just turn the computer on and put the restore CD in, will it work like that? please help me

Answer #1

If you have a restore CD, put it in your CD/DVD drive and reboot then follow the on-screen instructions. You can then restore your PC to its factory install.

Remember to backup anything you don’t want to lose like Photographs, Music or anything you downloaded that you want to keep.
