Question about Gateway MT6728 Notebook

1 Answer

Screen blank. only pointer shows

I have a Gateway MT6728 that recently had the hard drive replaced by the Geek Squad. Was working fine until it froze today. Cntrl Alt Delte did nothing, so I shut down. When I power up all I get is a blank screen and the pointer. Any suggestions?

Thanks
Gary

It sounds like damaged OS or registry. You need to restore the operating system. Try F8 at reboot and select "Safe Mode".

If you can't get run the recovery cd's and you know the cd drive is good then it has to be the hard drive causing the lockups cause that means data isn't able to be copied over to it.

If you do not want to repair the laptop, you can remove the hard drive from the laptop and put the hard drive in an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive. To free up disk space on this hard drive, just delete the Windows folder and programs off this hard drive and just leave your data files.

Gateway PC screen blank, geek squad diagnosis motherboard issue


You could replace the motor board for less than $100 but I think the geek squad says the motor board is bad on every computer that doesn't start right up for them so I would have someone else look at it first. Or just get a new computer at walmart for like $300

sounds like windows is not loading properly. try taking out the hard drive. disconnect everything. plug it all back in and try again. This might work.

Upgraded hard drive, from 80gb to 250gb. I have had to reload my os twice. it appears that the bios is not recognizing my hd. a friend said that the inspiron 6000 does not do well with a hd bigger then...


I dont think we can use a hard disk of 160gb in an inspiron 6000. and make sure you bought a ATA hard drive and not a SATA drive. For the Western digital try to reinstall XP and install the device drivers before installing application s/w.

Thank you sir


You need a place that can repair a hard drive. Geek Squad doesn't do that. You could Google something like:

Hard drive repair in Seattle.

Replacing Seattle for wherever you live.

Hope that helps you out.
