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

My computer starts in safe mood ask for systems password i donot have and will not do anything else


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.

Boots up but goes to the xp screen and then shuts down and restarts. what do i do?


You will need your XP CD to run a Repair install.

1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the boot order in the system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive. Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.
2. When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will need to press enter to setup Windows XP.
3. To setup Windows XP now and Repair Install, press ENTER. DO NOT choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R".
4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.
5. Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options, END setup. After the reboot read the fix at the end of this post.
6. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot. Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact.


If you don't have an option to repair, try this:

1. Boot with XP CD.
2. Press R to load the Recovery Console.
3. Login to the Recovery Console using your Admin password if needed.
4. Type bootcfg
5. This should fix any boot.ini errors causing setup not to see the XP installation.
6. Try the repair install again.

If the Repair is still not an option, try the following:

1. Boot with XP CD.
2. Press R to load the Recovery Console.
3. Login to the Recovery Console using your Admin password if needed.
4. If the CD letter is K: give these commands

* copy K:\i386\ntldr C:\
* copy K:\i386\ntdetect.com C:\

While still in the Recovery Console, try this as well:

1. Type: attrib -h -r -s C:\boot.ini del C:\boot.ini
2. Type: BootCfg /Rebuild
3. Now Restart and try the Repair Install again.

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.

Dell Inspiron 530s/531s desktop, Win. Xp home...Windows stops responding at the ''Loading Personal Settings'' cannot boot in safe mode.


try to boot in "Last good known configuration settings" by restarting your pc and then press F8 before windows appear and then select the boot option i mention above. if this not work since you said that it can't boot to safe mode, your other option is to repair the windows or else reformat it. when you repair the windows you must have windows xp home edition cd installer, you load it to your cd/dvd rom and then restart your pc and press F2 or DEL button before windows appear in order to go to setup bios settings. in bios settings, you choose boot order setup and setup first priority to cd/dvd and press F10 by saving the changes and then press any key when you see the prompt so that it can boot up to windows xp home cd installer and then follow screen instruction that you arrive to windows repair option.

You may need to put your model number in gateways website and download the drivers to a thumb drive or burn to a cd before attempting this.

The fastest resolution to this problem is to take a respective windows disk (make sure you check your key on the side of the tower and see if it says xp home or xp professional) whichever you have get a windows disk the same as this and boot from the windows disk first it will ask you if you want to boot from cd press any key do so. then it will load drivers. it will then ask you if you want to load the recovery console or if you want to install windows, press what key it says for installing windows. it will then check for previous versions of windows xp on the computer. eventually it will pop-up with a license agreement, press F8 to accept. then if you used the appropriate disc (XP or PRO) it will then ask if you want to repair the previous installation of windows. press r for repair. it will then begin the repair copying files then rebooting. do not remove the disc and do not hit a key when it asks if you want to boot from the cd rom at this point. it will do it's thing for about 2-5 minutes. at this point it will ask for a license key which you will type in from your key located on the outside of the case. hit enter it will continue, if it has a question about network settings tell it to use defualt. if any other pop-ups appear between now and reboot cancel the pop-up. it will reboot and again do not boot from the cd let it time out, and done you will be in windows xp. install all drivers needed and run automatic updates if auto updates do not work google: automatic update repair batch file. there are a few out there that will auto clear the cache for updates. after running it for a while and a couple more reboots then updates will function properly.
