Notebook Gateway 7330GZ won't boot

I turned on my notebook and it is stuck on the Gateway screen that says BOOT Menu F10 and BIOS Settings F2.
It will not go any further and it will not respond to any keys.

    My 3-month-old notebook has the same issue. It started after the last round of Microsoft updates but I don't think that's the problem. A USB keyboard allows me to use the computer but I have to press either F10 or Esc and boot the computer up.

Hm...That sounds like either the motherboard is dying/dead or a device is (such as the hard drive). I would suggest removing one piece at a time and see if you can get past that screen. The most annoying would be if it is the DVD drive since it's probably the most difficult device to remove from the laptop. (If memory serves it involves removing a certain screw from the bottom and then getting under the keyboard so you can push it out).

Do you have a second stick of RAM installed? Mine died a while ago and caused real heck with my 7330GZ.

Computer freezes during recovery


Type F2 at boot and go into bios. On the Advanced menu -> disable speed step. Type F10 to save settings. Retry the recovery, it should complete this time. Once the install has completed, update from the microsoft web site. Make sure update kb885626 is installed before you enable speed step.

Gateway notebook


such problems normally i associate it with ram(memory) and or hard drive. so what i suggest yu do is first lose the area where the ram is, bring it out then put it back in place. then restart yr system n see if it hangs. if u have more than one ram in yr system then try testing then one after the other not just putting the 2 at ones..next try removing the hard drive then power it on n see what happens.next if u can enter into the bios setting good there yu can restore default settings fto manufacturers design.
b4 bringing out any hard ware from yr system try removing batteries first then from power as well.
good luck as u do this
n do come back to tell me the extend yuv gone
