Get in there and see if your buttons are impeded in motion or stuck somehow; check that your battery's not acting up (esp. if you have a spare) and also try to convince it that you haven't shut the laptop hinge. Likewise try removing AC and battery for a bit and then retrying (with at least one of those reconnected, natch.) As it is it seems like some kind of power button fault or perhaps an actual fault in the power management setup; maybe you can flash the BIOS and have it act right again.
Don't forget to re-pose your question as particular to Gateway MT6821s, since there are probably existing solutions particular to your model.

On the right side, you can email Microsoft or web chat. Microsoft isn't the friendliest service dept to get a hold of. Hope this helps.

Gx620 boots up, then screen goes blank, reboot gives blank screen with cursor blinking. will boot with cd but still shuts down after a minute or two.


Remove the battery and open the case. Look inside the computer with a flashlight to see if any of the capacitors are busted or leaking from corrosion. The capacitors look like little battery towers, but they are not as tall as the AA or AAA batteries.

If the capacitors are bad, your computer goes bunkers.

Re windows live mail. When you are in your


If you click on the arrow to the right of the NEW tab, on the contacts screen, you get a drop down menu. chose "email Message", it should bring up a blank email with no email address. I just did it to be sure and it works for me. If you hit the Email tab, you will get a blank screen with the highlighted name in the "TO" line.

Black screen on my labtop,can't see a thing


This sounds like a ram or memory issue. If your computer is under warranty I would contact the manufacturer. If it is not, I would find a manual and reseat the ram. All notebooks vary so I would not be able to tell you where it is specifically. The process is you pull out the ram, and put it back in.

If you feel uncomfortable doing this any local computer repair store should be able to take care of this for you.

Also, is the screen turning on, I mean can you tell if the screen is actually on. There may be a problem with the monitor, or cabling if the screen is not actually turning on. I understand the screen stays blank, but there is two different types of blank. As in there is no text but the screen is on. Or the screen is completely off.

If it is completely off it is not a memory issue, but a screen issue and would need to be handled by the manufacturer or repair firm.

Video


I really could use more information but will suggest updating the video drivers as well as the DirectX driver (9.0C) from Microsoft.

Since I have no idea on what all you have done, I have some questions / suggestions.
1st: Have you Defragmented your computer? If not this month, please do so ASAP.
2nd: How much free space is left on your hard drive? You need over 15% free space.
3rd: Have you cleaned out you cookies, temp Files & Temp. Internet Files?
4th: Every item you add or install anything on your computer, it starts running each time you boot up.
This eats up your limited power and processor.To see this you will need to use the CRTL/ALT/DELETE keys to open up your TASK MANAGER
On the right side you will see a TAB called START UP. Each item that is checked or ********** is running in the background.
You do not need this stuff running. Its a gift of Microsoft to make it start faster for you and is no longer a needed item since you have so much power.
Uncheck most if not all items, like MSN or YAHOO chat, Games and anything not directly related to the computer operation.

Possibly Video Card problem?


Mikolan,

That is so crazy.
You say you previously was able to see the POST screen and now you can't?
You say you switched monitors and card outputs to no avail? Is the card an ATI with an aux Molex power connector?
Is the puter actually going into standby or hibernation?
Have a boot disk? or a PE?
How about a Linux self-install distibution CD. Just kidding about that last one. Not really, you can see if the puter does respond.

Don't rule out a faulty power supply. Video card fail is usually one long, two short beeps at POST. or 8 short.
