I have a gateway cx210x i purchased in 2006. When I boot I receive an error that reads "No TPM or TPM has problem". I've created a Phoenix recovery disk though I seem to be having problems using it. I'm told that to boot into crisis recovery mode one needs to unplug the laptop, hold down fn+b or win+b, plug in the power cord and press the power button. This is not working for me. Any insight on how to properly enter crisis recovery mode would be much appreciated.

Yes, I do have a crisis recovery disk. I'm using a USB floppy drive.

Crisis recovery mode is a special low function Bios recovery mode that boots very basic components in the event of a bios failure.

it looks like you have to use a jumper :  http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/INTEL/SAC008AA/00000007.shtml

or a floppy

Thanks nobus, but my computer is a laptop and the instructions above appear to be for a desktop motherboard. I believe the part number of my mb is 31TA6MB0007.

I figured it out. On this model one must press Win+r while booting to enter crisis recovery mode. I'm not sure if it matters but the battery was removed during the process.
