Question about Gateway (4000274) Motherboard

1 Answer

The cursor is frozen in the middle of the screen.

No matter what I do with the computer - disconnect everything - disconnect one item, such as the printer, the cursor will not move. I tried using a different mouse and still it doesn't work. Since I cannot move the cursor, I can't click on anything. Do you have any suggestions?

Thank you,
Ralph B. Unterbrink

Screen is black


If you're getting just a flashing cursor on a black screen it's probably a motherboard/video card/hard disk problem (probably motherboard).

If there's not even a flashing cursor - just a black screen - you can add a failed power unit to your list of problems.

The easiest way to check is to borrow a power unit and video card from a friend's computer. There's no need to remove your existing power unit. Simply disconnect the power cables from the motherboard and connect the spare power unit in its place.

If your computer powers up it is obviously a faulty power unit to blame. IIf there's still nothing on the screen, power down the computer and replace the video card with the spare one. If there's still nothing on the screen when you power it up then in all probability your motherboard is history

Frozen cursor


This happened to me once. and it was so frustrating.
Here's how I fixed mine (don't forget to set a restore point in case something goes wrong?): using your keyboards arrow keys, tab keys, hot keys, etc. to navigate your system.


REBOOT in SAFE MODE.Press F8 when it boots.
-- Go to START > SETTTINGS > CONTROL PANEL and open your SYSTEM PROPERTIES. Select the HARDWARE tab and open your DEVICE MANAGER scroll down to MICE AND OTHER POINTING DEVICES and double click on your listed/installed device to open up a PROPERTIES WINDOW on this device.
Select DRIVER tab. From here you can try several things: You may need to update your drivers, and, at least in XP you can roll back to your previous setting if updates don't help, or, heaven forbid, make matters worse.
OR you can do what finally worked for me. I had to uninstall my mouse drivers then reinstall them.

Try also to visit lenovo (they have the support for your pc) for the latest driver updates:

I hope it works for you, good luck

Frozen keyboard & mouse on Acer Notebook


You may have a motherboard failure problem. I would ask you to check the drivers and update them but will be hard to do if you can't get past load screen. You best bet may to get a copy of system recovery and boot pc with the disk installed. Wipe computer completely clean and reinstall windows.
