Open Question

My computer, a Gateway GT5428, crashed. I tried to turn it on in safemode, but it came back in normal mode with a message that said the newest version of my virus protection had problems, and they were now using an older version. I have Trend Micro and Webboot. Everything seemed to work except one internet jigsaw puzzle and my printer a Canon MP160, which was installed on August 18,2007 and worked fine until now. The computer does not recognize that there had ever been a printer. There is no printer listed when I open "printers". My Start memory lists CanonMP160 and Canon Utilities. Has uninstall. Couldn't do that. Nothing shows under CanonMP160. I have had these error messages at various times during this frustrating time when I tried to get my printer back. 1. Cannot locate a valid definitions file. Please go to the Program Options page and click Update Definitions to download a definitions file. I could not find Program Options in Vista. It must have a different name or be hidden. 2.Before you can print, you need to select a printer. If you need to install a printer either double click the Add Printer icon or click the Find Printer... button located in the General tab of this dialog. I tried both - they didn't work. 3. Window can't open Add printer. the local print spooler service is not running. Please restart the spooler or restart the machine. Under WinZip Extractor got message"MP Drives has not been installed. I tried tuning off the printer and unplugging it for several minutes. No results I tried restarting the computer. The printer did not come back. Is there a fee for this service?

SOURCE: Installing of Printer

I had the same problem and like you couldn't find the solution and was verrrrrrry frustrated. Last night I loaded Vista Service Pack 1 (RC1). THE PROBLEM IS NOW FIXED. If you aren't comfortable loading a "beta" version you will need to wait until the first quarter of 2008.

How to start gateway normal mode


Shut off the unit; when you turn it back on pay attention to the screen as it should display a message to hit a certain key on the keyboard that will bring you to a screen that will allow to chose starting in normal mode. This message will come up quick on the screen so you need to choose the key on the keyboard rather quickly or the system will just start-up as it usually does.

Windows will not load stuck on welcom screen any help with this? Please and thank you


Hi Welcome to FixYa!
If you are having this kind of problem, follow the steps below:
1)Turn off the computer completely.
2)Unplug the charger from the laptop and remove the battery.
3)Press and hold down the power button for 5-10secs. (this will drain the remaining static charges inside the computer)
4)put in back the battery and plug the charger back.
5)Try now to turn on the computer and see if you will be able to pass the Windows Welcome screen.
6)If still no go, turn off the computer again.
7)Try to boot into safemode. (Turn on computer and once you press the power button, keep on tapping on F8.. You should see a screen that has Windows Advanced Boot Options. It has different options like safemode, safemode with networking, etc.)
8)Using the arrow keys, select Safemode. You should be able to login into Windows in Safemode. You might notice that the resolution is different. Don't panic, that's normal.
9)Once you are in safemode, access the System Configuration Utility tool. Open the link to know how to access it. http://vlaurie.com/computers2/Articles/msconfig.htm
10)Once you have accessed msconfig, click on the startup tab>then click on Disable all>click on apply.
11)Click on the Services tab>put a check on the box that says, Hide Microsoft services>Click disable all>click on apply and OK.
12)it will now prompt you with a restart. Restart the computer. and it will now boot back to normal mode.
13)You should be able now to access Windows. If it is successful, there are just some startup items or services that are having conflicts while Windows is trying to load up.
If you are not able to access safemode either, pretty much you have a bad hard drive or Windows could be corrupted. Try first reinstalling Windows on you computer.
Hope this could be a big help.

Try starting the OS in safe mode (hit F8 immediately after the BIOS screen until you see a menu) and replace the driver with the newest available driver. Try the gateway provided driver first, but if that doesn't work, you can always try to download the newest driver direct from Intel.
