Question about Gateway MT3705 Notebook

1 Answer

Gateway PC error

I turned on my laptop, and the black screen where the Gateway logo is shown comes up.

Usually it loads faster and shows my userpage to login

But now, it won't go any further than that. The screen is still there and it says ''please wait...'' at the bottom

What is going on?

    Hi, thanks for helping me! But unfortanetly, I could not access the BIOS setting. The screen says to click F2 for bios, but it will not direct me there.

    I called Gateway and they are sending me a recovery disc, I just hope this will be the solution.

    I'm still worried though

Hi there
If you can get into the bios set it to default settings and reboot the laptop, it should let you through to windows

post back if you get the same result

Kind regards

    Hi again
    The recovery CD will be of no use as you cannot access the bios to boot the CD.
    Is the machine still under warranty?

Sounds like a software error. When the screen has been blaxk for a minute or two try hitting control+alt+del and use the task manager to start the process explorer.exe if so then there is a registry or windows error and needs to be repaired.

Windows does not load after gateway logo


This sounds like you have no operating system on your laptop. I bet someway, just as I did before, you have lost your operating system, and it needs to be reinstalled on your computer.

Problem restarting, "press r"


  1. Start the laptop
  2. when the logo screen turns black start pressing F8 a few times.
  3. A Windows Boot Options screen should show on the screen
  4. If you see the Windows Logo (the normal thing when Windows loads, then press reset and try again
  5. At the Windows Boot Options screen select "Last known good configuration" and press Enter twice
It "should" now load normally, if not then..
  1. Replace step 5 above with "Safe Mode" and see if that loads all the way through. If so, then restart and see if its OK now.
If not, then post back with any error messages and we can look at something else.
