    I just shut down my computer. Then tried to boot it up. The gateway screen opens up then it just stays there. There is no activity after that at all.

    Is this a Laptop or Desktop?

    It is most likely one of the following:


    1. Ram

    2. Video Card

    If it has multiple sticks of ram, remove them and try them 1 at a time see if that changes anything

    also, while you are in there, make sure the video card is in securely

AAAAA !!! computer crashed. ok here is how to fix it. without buying a windows disk for $300.00 or paying someone $200.00 to fix it. i warn you your going to lose everything but re start your computer and keep hitting F10 this will do a full system restore. and from there it will walk you through processes and then it will bring your computer back to the way it was when you first brought it home. unless you have a restore point. to restore it to before the computer crashed

How do i fix my computer when it is stuck on the gateway screen.


Hi,
If you PC is stuck on the gateway screen and wont respond, you will have to do a hard boot to clear this. You perform a hard boot by simply pressing the power button in and holding it until the machine turns off. You should then be able to power it back up and have your PC back. If this does not clear the problems up, message me and I will be happy to further assist you,
Regards,

Have a gateway Mt3708 it started turning off on its own now I have no screen. I had gotten message reading as follows: YUKON Pxe V4.17.8.1 (alpa) (20060116) (C) copyright 2003-2006 Marvell (R) all rights...


when the logo comes on, press the "tab" key. It should turn the logo off and show you what the computer is doing. This may help:

THIS IS FOR HP AND COMPAQ USERS (it might help others as well)
i had the same problem with my compaq preasrio v6000.
ALL U HAVE TO DO IS
1- START UP UP UR COMPUTER AND PRESS F10
2-GO TO DIAGNOSTICS
3-RUN A HARD DISK TEST
IF IT PASSES THEN YOU JUST NEED TO RE-INSTALL TO YOUR OPERATING SYSTEM
IF NOT YOU WILL HAVE TO CHANGE YOUR HARD DISK.

Or try this:
Go into the BIOS.. Go into the BOOT options.. and hit Shift+1 to disable the Realtek boot option.. pop in the disk you want to boot from.. and make sure you set your boot options to CD-Rom and then HDD.. and just wait.. be patient.. and the blue screen (for booting) will show up! :)

When my Gateway 300S is powering up, it recycles.


If you repeatedly hit F8 key when the computer starts to boot it will open the boot menu screen. There should be an option to "halt computer on all errors". This should bring up the blue screen of death. It should give you something like
STOP: 0X0000007E, the a whole bunch of other numbers. after that it may display a file name. You can search the internet for STOP: 0X0000007E and the file named mentioned. You may be able to find a solution by doing this. It is usually caused by a bad driver or executing a bad command on Windows start up. You can boot the computer in safe mode from the boot menu and maybe repair the problem but it's a tough one to find. I'm trying to repair a similar Gateway computer. It doesn't list a file name and I'm pretty sure that it's a video driver or the onboard video card. The problem is Gateway is no longer in business and it's hard to find updated drivers I"m going to try to backup all the files on the drive and re-install windows and try to repair the drivers with more updated ones. The gateways are hard because they don't have slots in the motherboard to install anything but an old PCI video card. It may be time to think about a new computer soon.

Desktop frozen with the monitor showing disorted, green blocks


Try rebooting your computer with a disc or discs that came with it. That disc or discs should reinstall windows. If this does not work try getting linux or dos on a cd an try betting from the cd instead of the HDD. If this does not work either then it must your graphics card or HDD. I am leaning more towards graphics card because ussually your computer will give you a blue screen if your hard drive fails.
