Question about Gateway MX8711 Notebook
I turn on my computer it freezes in like 3 secs. You cant do anything like taskmanger wont workk nothin i need help now
Reboot the machine. tap the f8 key and select safe mode. boot into safe mode and see if the computer freezes up again.
in the event it doesnt, you have a bad driver or new software on the drive. to correct this go to gateway.com select your model and download any recent updates including the bios. also uninstall any new service packs or software you had loaded recently.
reboot machine and see if you have the same error.
if this continues or it froze in safemode you could have two problems,
1. Corrupt OS files, the fix: Restore Machine after backing up data.
2. GPU having issues and heating up to the point it turns off, the fix: Local repair shop or Gateway replace mobo or local repair shop reflow board.
Let me know what you try and what works! Good Luck!
