Gateway 450SX Laptop won't boot

Laptop boots..appears to be loading XP..asks for login info...loads personal settings..then stops with a blank desktop screen.  No icons..nothing further happens..mouse works..control+alt+del brings up the login/logoff box and allows you to log-off, shutdown, etc.
I tried changing the bios to boot from disk and get the same exact result with booting from the disk.  I can't boot to "safe" mode..or to a DOS prompt...
What can, or can I even do anything for remedy this?   Thanks

Wespro n720 hanging at loading os image how to solve this problem


You don't state the OS but usually it is a damaged system file.
On XP you can try this: Boot computer and press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice when you See Windows welcome screen / login screen. It`ll show classic login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in username field and leave password field blank, press Enter and you should be able to login Windows. Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts". On Win 7 or Vista: Ctrl+Alt+Delete won`t work, you have to use some windows password recovery software. I recommend Windows Password Reset Deluxe

Iaccidentally locked my laptop and cant log on


Lost Windows password:


  • Login as Administrator. Try with no password (load safe mode if you don't see Administrator). Press F8 during boot to access Safe Mode. XP only.
  • Login as other user (if other user is available) and manage users. Must be an administrator.
  • Reformat computer.
  • Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like http://www.top-password.com/reset-windows-password.html
  • Free software option would be Hirens Boot CD. This one is command prompt only. http://www.hirensbootcd.org/ Must follow instructions exactly.

Start the computer and it shows gateway then window xp loading then the screen is blank


The user settings are corrupted. Try to boot in Safe Mode and in there disable all programs that are loaded at boot.
If you can't boot in Safe Mode then the corruption is too great to fix, you will have to reinstall. If you need to recover/backup your files then , before reinstalling, boot with a Linux Live-CD and copy them.

Samsung r40 not loading xp


If the computer boots in to safe mode fine, you more than likely have a virus or spyware interfering with the boot process.

Windows also could have corruption on it.
Insert your windows XP CD and boot the computer, you may need to set your boot order in BIOS so tht CD is first.

Once the CD loads Run the recovery console Select 1 for the C: drive if it asks for a password this is generally blank or will be the password on the "Administrator" account you see when you boot to windows in safemode

Once in the recovery console do a chkdsk /f command
This is will check for errors on the disk and can fix a lot of boot issues
I would also suggest typing the command mbrfix to replace the master boot record.

If it still will not boot you may need to reinstall windows xp

Laptop won't boot


This is caused by two files that are corrupt on your system. If you can get to another XP computer and get the following two files from the windowssystem32 folder and copy them to the same location on your hard drive. The easiest way is to connect your hard drive to the other computer as a slave and copy them.

The files are: userinit.exe and wsaupdater.exe


You can pull the HD out of the problem computer and put it in place of the CD on the working one to copy these files.

Also if they both have floppy drives, make a dos boot disk on the and copy the two files to the floppy. Boot from this floppy and copy the files to the c:windowssystem32 folder.


Hope this helps

After booting process done. Screen goes blank and Keyboard not working only Mouse cursor is dispaly and working on the blank screen in My acer Laptop.


Try booting the system to Safe mode.

To boot to safe mode:

Restart the computer. As soon as the BIOS has finished loading, F8 key on your keyboard. When Windows Options menu appears, scroll to select the Safe mode menu item, and then press Enter.

Select "Last known good configuration" then press Enter.

If that doesn't work reboot again and keep tapping on F8 to Safe Mode and instead of selecting "last known good configuration" select "Repair Your Computer"

Or you can try this:
Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";}
  1. Place your Windows XP set up disk in your CD drive.
  2. Turn off your computer and change your BOOT order to boot from CDs first.
  3. Turn your computer back on.
  4. Press any key on your keyboard when it asks you to.
  5. Press enter when you see a blue screen, one of the options should say, "To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.".
  6. Press enter to start the windows set up.
  7. Accept the Licence and Agreement and confirm that the setup is searching for current versions on XP.
  8. Press "R" when the set up has found your current version of XP.
  9. Notice that the Set up is deleting all your windows xp files and replacing them. (This will not cause loss of data)
