Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor

Blue screen...sometimes a white screen?

A few days ago, a black screen with white text appeared on my laptop giving me the option of starting up in safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command prompt, Last known configuration that worked, or starting windows normally. When I attempted to make a selection, the computer was unresponsive, so I did an emergency shut down and attempted to start it up again. Afterwards it brought me to the advanced start up options screen. Now, I've tried starting up with each one, and each time it's brought me to the same blue screen of death with the stop code 0x000000ED, then shut off and restarted on it's own again only to repeat the process. At times, instead of the blue screen being flashed after the splash screen, the screen will begin to go almost completely white, starting from the edges and melting towards the center. you can barely make out what appears to be mozilla firefox, which is what I had running before it began acting up.Also, on one occasion, I turned of the wireless to see if that would have any effect, and a message flashed for a spalit second saying "starting memory dump", then restarted and did what it did before.

My laptop is an HP pavillion ze2000 (ze2113us) and is almost 4 years old. If anyone could help me regarding this matter, I'd appreciate it.

    Is it possible to boot xp from a flash drive? Also, I've attempted to boot in safe mode with command prompt in the past, but it never makes it passed the splash screen.

    I don't have the xp recovery disks, and was thinking of transferring the boot data onto my flash drive and going that route instead?

This error is caused by a bad sector or error on the HD. The best course of action to start with would be to either boot up from a windows XP CD or you can try going into safe mode with command prompt. Once you get to a command prompt you will want to type the command chkdsk /r. This will run a scan of the hard drive and repair any issues it is having. If you are booting from an XP CD you will want to choose the options for repair and go to the repair console. For further information please read

    There is no easy way to boot XP from a flash drive. The direct answer to this is yes it is possible but would take many hours to configure and a very high degree of understanding how both hardware and software interact and some programming knowledge on top of all of that. I have seen it done but do not recommend it and again it would take longer to do this then it would to just do a reinstall of XP on your system.

    Here is an artical on how to make a bootable flash drive but in order to do it you would need an XP CD to do this.

    If you have a Fat32 partition instead of an NTFS you could try an old windows 98 boot disk to get to a command prompt but again this will only work depending on how your hard drive is formated.

The laptop stays on for few minutes and then it turns itself off but before it does that, it shows a large blue scree and some large white text, the text flicks a little but fast to the point where I can...

First of all Turn of your laptop.
Now this time when you turn on your laptop start tapping F8 Key on you keyboard when you Toshiba logo. Tap F8 key for at least 5-6 times.
You will get a Windows Advance Option Menu. You will see lot of options over their written in white text. Your mouse will not work on this screen. Use UP and DOWN arrow keys on you keyboard and highlight Last known good configuration. Once highlighted press enter on it. See if you computer boots. If it boots try doing a restore.
If it doesn't boot.
Turn off your computer and then turn on your computer. On Toshiba Logo screen tap F8 key once again and go to windows advanced option menu screen once again and this time hightlight Disable automatic restart on system failure. Now when you see Blue screen coming up on your computer once again your computer won't restart. Now you can write down the information to trace out the blue screen that is occurring on your computer. Write down the Error code which will be in form of STOP 0x000000XX, you find this error code somewhere at the bottom of the blue screen.
Once you get the reply here, we will see what we can do.

You need to run a repair installation with the original windows disc. If you do not have one then using the recovery disc and completely reinstalling windows is the best option.

Turns out it is a defect in the phone. I traded for another Lotus; it doesn't happen to all of them and hopefully it won't happen with my new one.

LCD screen partially display's

This kind of issue is usually due to a loose inverter cable, re-seating the cable is a relatively simple matter. 
If the laptop is still under warranty you should contact Dell to have it repaired, if on the other hand it is out of warranty you should shop around for a repair quote unless you are absolutely confident you can strip and reassemble your laptop.

Mine would do the same thing. What you need to do is turn the unit off and it should go into demo mode. There is an option for "reverse mode on or off" make sure it is turned off. I beleive you will have to hit the band button to change it.
