Question about Gateway M305CRV Notebook
When I turn my computer on I see the Gateway welcome screen, then the windows loading screen, then the screen goes blank and you can hear windows start but can't see anything. Could the motherboard be shot like my friend says it is?
Hello Chrispa22, Rest assured, it isn't a fried motherboard. If it had been you woun't see anything on the screen. It's as simple as this. Your problem is related with the windows instalation you currently have. Try to boot the windows in safemode to see if the problem still manifests. If you have 2 partitions on the hard disk move all important data to the one not containing the windows files. The cleanest way to fix this would be to reinstall windows. Format the C: partition to make yourself a clean install. After the install everything should be fine. If you need more assistance please reply back or contact me on the live assistance.

I've seen this issue in the past and it might be a simple fix what sometimes happens is the monitor defaults to a different display ie:you have also used the tv as a monitor etc. try hitting f8 on start up go into safe mode and reset the display its supposed to use hope this helps
