Gateway 505gr became unresponsive, on reboot windows cannot load

On reboot, windows message regarding starting in Safe mode, normally, etc... appears, but regardless of the selection, Windows starts to load (gets the windows boot up screen, goes about 30-45 seconds) then goes into power save and begins the process again.

    Gateway 505GR will become unresponsive and sometimes will reboot windows again where it will again become unresponsive. This cycle will repeat itself or sometimes the machine will begin beeping constantly.

    Out Gateway 505 GR will become unresponsive and reboot to only be unresponsive again! It will sometimes beep constantly until the power is shut off completely.

    I have a similar problem. The system just freezes after working for a minute or two and I have to reboot and happens all over again.

Hello guys,
This problem would arise only when the motherboard doesn't work properly. Check with your nearest gateway service center to get your CPU work again. That would be the only thing to be done.

Hello I wonder if you can help. When we switch


Had a similar problem like this several times. Try choosing safe mode. Safe mode will load the required drivers. After safe mode finishes the loading process, restart your computer and choose to start windows normally. The problem you mention usually happens when the computer is turned off without using normal shut down procedures. Also happens when you have a sudden power outage.

Problem not fix


Boot the machine in safe mode, then reboot as normal, if the problem persists after reboot did you
install software proir to this try reinstall. Use anti virus and spyware malware scans etc.

Running in safe mode, is exactly that safe while most problems exist in OS.
Let me know how you get on.

My computer starts but before booting it shuts down.


You may have lost part of your windows program. If you have a system restore disk, you can run a system restore and probably fix your problem.
Some of your windows files have gotten deleted. When windows gets to this point all windows knows to do is restart. A virus can cause this problem.

Windows XP fails to load and Computer will not start up.


Boot from startup floppy disks or CD-ROM, choose repair option during setup, and run Recovery Console. When you are logged on, you can run FIXMBR command to fix master boot record. This should solve your problem.
