Gateway NV53A laptop issues!

I have the Gateway NV53A laptop! I do not have the money to get geek squad or any of those other computer fixers. What is going on: I love my laptop and am lost without it. I am pretty sure that a virus has gotten in, even though i had a good security, and i have done all things to get rid of it. Reset and completely cleared all memory..tried everything. It will start to turn on and a little alert pop up will come up and say this exactly: " The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered and unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proveed. To install Windows, click "OK" to restart the computer, and then restart the insallation." I have clicked ok, it then says setup is starting services and tries to start. The windows colors and logo pops up...but it just stays there and says all that again. Can someone please please help me, I will be so gratefull and it would be awesome knowing there are people out there willing to help!Any tips..or helpful hints are appreciated. Thanks! If there is a certain cd i need please tell me exactly how to get it and which one and how to use it!

SOURCE: Geek Squad Backup Disks

Usually you just put the first backup disk in the CD/DVD drive and restart/reboot the computer.
If it does'nt boot up you have to go in to the bios settings and change the boot sequence so that it boots from the CD/DVD rom instead of the Hard Drive. When it's finished the restore task you can either leave the bios settings as they are, or change it back to boot from the Hard Drive. Sometimes the backup/restore disks will put the PC back to the same as the day you bought it, which means completely wiping the Hard Drive and reloading the Operating System (Windows) and any programs that where installed at the time the disks were made. If you can run the backup/recovery from within Windows there will be a program in the Programs list on the Start menu. That way you usually keep anything that you have added since you bought the PC and it just reinstalls the Operating System to restore it back to it's original condition.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: computer restarted unexpectly or encountered an unexpected error

Seems like the preinstalled image is corrupt or there is a hardware problem. Contact Acer for the correct procedure since this is a new system. I could offer alternate methods if you have the Windows install disc, but it is best to contact the manufacturer as soon as possible so it is on record.

Gateway PC screen blank, geek squad diagnosis motherboard issue


You could replace the motor board for less than $100 but I think the geek squad says the motor board is bad on every computer that doesn't start right up for them so I would have someone else look at it first. Or just get a new computer at walmart for like $300

No Network Connections After Repairs


Ah, yet another NASTY Geek Squad experience for the recordbooks...if you bought the computer at Best Buy, they should have been able to diagnose and replace the bad RAM stick. Replacing the RAM stick shouldn't have caused the network connections to be lost. You can go into your control panel and set up a new connection in "My Network Places", or "Network & Sharing Center" (the name depends on which operating system you have. The wizard will walk you through creating a new connection, so you shouldn't have any problems.

More than likely, your computer was never sent to Gateway. They should have records for that serial number on your computer as to any repairs that were done. And it's a good idea to register your computer with Gateway anyway for severe issues that come up. I would also recommend finding a local computer repair shop if you can -- their business depends on the quality of their work and they're usually cheaper and cause less headaches than chainstores, and you won't wait a month to get your computer back.

Here's more info to my problem: Gateway laptop is 4 years old. Now getting message that says "System Fan Error!! !!Please turn off system and checkyour system fan!!" Computer was purchased...


Your CPU fan has failed! your heatsink overheats quickly and then shuts down to protect itself from burning up. Your motherboard is Not the problem, the fan is. This fan can be replaced by any compotent laptop technician. Make sure the tech has access to Gateway or has a source that supplys Gateway parts, as the part must be made for Gateway laptops and your model exactly! 90% of this type of problem can be repaired! Don't let non-techs at Best Buy or any other dept. store tell you your PC is "No Good". Take the time like your doing and do some research the problem before giving your hard earned cash to a 16 year old "Technician/salesman/commision/bonus" person.
If the Harddrive is undamaged and it can be mounted yes, your stuff can be saved to DVD or such. Be prepared though, this type of service can be costly so ask around and get quotes.
