Gateway boot problem

A friend gave me his gateway to get a virus out of; he said that it still operated well, but had issue when it was online. I have it at my house, but it will not do anything but bring up the logo screen with boot menu f10 and bios settings f2 displayed

i do not have his keyboard, I have a multimedia HP usb attached; is there a chance it will not detect the keyboard?

If it is not seeing the keyboard, you need to get a ps2 keyboard, go into the bios settings, and make sure usb keyboard support is turned on. Alot of times the default is disabled.

If the harddrive has a virus, make sure you reimage it or format it completely before using the unit.

Hp pavilion dv4 2045dx keeps freezing and shutting down


It seems that you have a virus and it is running at boot.
first try to boot in safe mode and see if the computer stay up.
"Restart... hold the f8 key down until you see the boot option menu and select: "Safe Mode with Networking"If your pc still shut off and freezes then is not a virus and it is a hardware issue, possibly power issue or heating issue with the CPU.If it is ok in safe mode, then you need to remove the virus in safe mode. Download antivirus program that support safe mode operation.after successful removal of the viruses, reboot in normal mode and edit your msconfig, to remove any running programs that might be viruses.
If you continue to have a problem, I can log gin to your PC and fix it myself, just download teamviewer and contact meTony

Restart your computer, and press F8 until the white-and-black "boot" menu is visible.

Emachines laptop XP setup cannot access HDD


Hi there.

Now, turn on your friends laptop, and access the BIOS/Setup menu. Have a look through the options, find the one that says something like Boot Virus Protection. Disable it. You can't install any operating system if this is Enabled. Then look for the Boot Priority or Boot Devices option. Change this, so it boots from CD-ROM first. Then try to install XP again.

Let me know if this works.

My PC computer


Hello,

freezing cause by sever virus infection and Hard drive error, if virus infection, virus can be eliminated but the system become slower, and if the hard drive error (bad sector) sometime can be resolve but most of that error HDD put to the bin.

anyway, if this cause by virus infection then, boot your computer in "safe mode with network " option by pressing "F8" at first start and then scan your computer for viruses, you can use online scanning here: http://www.precisesecurity.com/antivirus/online-scan.htm

if same issue occur, then better backup your files or save your picture in flash dive or any removable drive. and reformat and reinstall the windows operating system.

pls do not rate me if my solution not solve the issue and you need more further information. but if is invaluable solution rate me fixya.

Gateway lcd monitor


First, narrow down the problem to either the monitor, or to the computer itself. Either try the monitor on a spare or friend's computer, or try a known working monitor on your computer. I'd guess your computer is where the issue is at- it isn't booting the Operating System (MS XP or whatever O/S is present on the hard disk. if the computer is the issue, try booting from the CD which came with the computer, (assuming you have that CD). Or, you could see if some computer tech savvy person has a bootable floppy diskette. Basically a "no-boot" problem, can point to a number of problems: hardware issue (bad hard drive etc.), or an operating system problem.
