Question about Gateway NV55S04u PC Notebook
My gateway laptop won't load windows and recovery management won't work so I ordered recovery discs. after using the system recovery discs the computer restarted and it it's stuck on starting windows screen for an hour. now the screen just blank. what should I do next?
I would put in a Windows disc and see if that prompts windows to start and/or reinstall. Actually, can you send me the recovery disc via download? I am trying to fix my old laptop and cannot find the discs. firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks much!

SOURCE: Monitor not working
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 have the same problem with my Gateway 7330gz. My laptop got infected with spywares and it was so annoyed that I have to think about recover the system. So I did it with Gateway Recovery software. I chose the recovery option (press F11 when boot up)from hard drive since my dvd drive was broken. It went well but when it boots up again and Windows XP says detecting and installing the drivers and such, it was frozen haft way through. I turned off power many times to reboot but it kept freezing at that point. I search Internet for help and seen this post. Wonderful! I press F2 to go to BIOS setup screen, use right arrow key to move to Advance menu option. There I use down arrow key to select SpeedStep, hit (-) key to disable it. Then F10 to save and exit, hit enter for OK button. The system boots again but this time it was no longer freezing, the setup process went through ok and continues...I am so happy and type this message so it might help others with the same issue. Thanks

Seems you have OS (first guess) problem so if you have recovery disk then insert it in DVD/CD driver and reboot your laptop.
And follow the instructions appeared on sreen and when you reach installation mode choose repair one if you wanna repair OS otherwise choose fresh Installation.
once you are done you should be good to go and if you have Hardware problems then your system will show the bugs on screen during installation period.
oh! if you have any external drives (Thumb drive, Ipod) plugged in then remove before you start above procedure because due to external drives also it happens if you dont have any plugged in external drives then follow the above procedure.
Thank you and post back if any thing changes.

From a computer that has internet access, download the appropriate ethernet driver for your network card from the link above. As for the recovery disk, you'll have to contact Gateway for a replacement disk.
