Question about Gateway GT5220 PC Desktop
My computer was unplugged, unused for about a month and now when I try to sign on, it will only sign on in "safe mode". In this mode, I have limited use of my keyboard and cannot figure out how to return it to it's normal mode. I am not connected to the internet but previously was connected with dial-up only. It's an old computer that is not compatible to DSL but I have a specific program that I use on it that does not require internet access. Help!!!
Hi check to see if you have anything connected to your pc apart from the ac mains plug and keyboard/ mouse and screen.Just have the basics attached to the pc,then switch it off then on again.You should then have a choice to start up in last known working mode ,click that and see what happens next.

Your first troubleshooting step should be this:
Switch ON the PC, boot the PC
in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch On until you
get the Safe Mode Option.
Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.
Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->Click 'System Restore'
A 'System Restore' window will appear.
Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next
Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.
Note: It is better if you could remember from which date you are
facing the issue, try to select a date prior to that date.
The detail of that particular date should show "System
Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.
Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.
After reboot your problem should be resolved.
If you feel that, my answers have helped you getting
