Question about Computers & Internet
The gateway splash screen shows on the computer, but it will not get past that. I tried pressing F1 quickly to get to the BIOS menu, and that didn't work. Next, I pressed F10 (that's the boot menu), and it wouldn't go to that either. It won't boot from my XP disc either. Gateway will not help because our warranty is expired, but they did say to try some troubleshooting with some jumper leads (didn't help).
If anybody will help, I will be greatly appreciative.
It sounds like a problem regarding the POST process (power on self test) which is the first thing your computer does when booting up when testing the components that make up your system to make sure it has what it needs to start booting. which in your case could mean you may have a hardware problem. do you know what jumper on the motherboard you were trying with?
Try to reset your cmos by removing the cmos battery, waiting a few minutes, reinstall the battery and try to restart?
if possible post what system you have to get more details on how to reset your motherboard:

Turn on your computer. If your computer is already on, then reboot it.
You need to see the initial display screen to get into the BIOS.
Press the F1 key immediately in one second intervals when you see the initial screen displaying the BIOS provider information.
The majority of Gateway computers use the F1 key.
If, for some reason this does not work, then use the F2.
All of Gateway's desktops use the F1 or F2 keys.
hope this helps
