Hi! I have a problem with my new desktop (9 month old). Every new start after night rest it offers safe mode and does not load if I say him load an ordinal way. Well, I go then to safe mode and a couple of minutes latter (looking through system messages (Control panel/Administration...)) I make soft shut down. Most often, the next start is OK. It repeats from first day. I tried to reinstall Windows a couple of times, it does not help. There was a period (Summer) when it has been started with no problem, but not too long. Last month I notice a new warning saying that HDD has block errors. Now I'm testing my HDD and can see 73 error blocks (10 per cents scanned yet by Victoria HDD test program). What you say on that? Is it fixable or you'd advise me to change HDD or something else? I have Windows XP SP2 updated and Samsung HD200HJ hard disk.

If you have windows vista installation disk just repair by system restore. Get try from safe mode or press F8 and use the option most recent setting. If this doesnt solve then contact your engineer to repair windows......
try pressing F8 at bootup, when the SAFE MODE window comes up, select boot in Safe mode desktop. When at next window, you are asked if you wish to go to desktop, or perform a System restore, choose system restore, when the next window comes up, like a calender, simply choose a time prior to the problem, follow instructions, and it will go through and reboot. This should get you back.
For that you need to fix error on harddrive. For that You can solve this errors with following 2 methods. (1)When you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode. Then if you are able to enter in safe mode then uninstall driver or software which you installed recently and face this error. (2)If
you are not able to enter in safe mode Then you need to fix error on
hard drive.For that you need windows disk or recovery disk. Boot your computer with that disk For that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 "del" key to enter in bios. Then go to boot menu and set frist boot device as your cd or dvd rom. Then save settings and exit bios. Insert windows disk in cd /dvd rom. Then it boot with that disk.Then you get this message "Press any key to boot from cd.." Then press any key. Then follow the procedure then enter in recovery console mode then type in prompt "chkdsk /r" Then type "y" Then it fix error on hard drive. Then
check if again you are not able to enter in windows then boot again and
this time choose "R" option for repair previous windows " then it
repairs old windows then it loads again old windows. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
If you mean running a hard drive scan such as CHKDSK (check disk) then you may have a failing hard drive. Try taking the computer into safe mode. (repeatedly press the F8 key after switching the computer on, then doing a three count--must be dont before the windows logo appears; choose safe mode or safe mode with networking). If the computer loads up normally in safe mode, then you have a software or harware conflict. If not, look at the hard drive.
1. Get Windows XP Booteble CD from a friend or simple download it for example "WINDOWS XP PROsp3 x86 32 BIT" 2. Burn it on CD 3. Switch on your Laptop/PC 4. Press F12 5. Put your Windows XP to your CD/DVD drive 6. Choose from a manu DVD/CD 7. Press any key to start instalation 8. wait a couple minutes and pres R for Repair 9. wait until you will se C:\ 10. and finally type "chkdsk c:" 11. after all restart laptop/pc 12. Enjoy
Is this still under warranty? If not then you'll just need to buy another HDD (hard drive device) and connect that one where the old was. Re-install XP or Vista. Conact Gateway or go to the Gateway web site to see what was hardware was supported for your system.
HDD IDE/EIDE or SATA/SATA II OS XP or Vista
After you find out the info just install the new HDD, and install the OS. I only recommend doing this since you can't even get into the Safe Mode. When everything is back up and running you can also re-attach the old drive to what is called Slave or CS (cable select) this is more automatic process. Then you'll be able to recover any data missing that you need that was on the older drive.
