Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Clarifying problem Went to turn the computer on one day (no problems prior to that) and it would continuously reboot t. Decided to boot from Windows XP CD, I reformatted the HD and reinstalled windows. Did check disk and everything was working great. So I started doing the windows updates. After I go them almost done (there were about 100 of them) it rebooted and keeps rebooting. Just like when I started!

    yes, a real purchased copy! No upgrades at all

    I have tried safe mode, safe mode with networking, last know configuration (basically all of them) and it just keeps rebooting

    I did repair the drive. When I first turned it on and it was rebooting constantly I formatted the drive and reinstalled windows XP from the CD, then it was super slow so I clicked on drive C from within windows and did check disk and told it to repair. Windows said it was repairing some things, then everything was great until I was almost done installing ALL the updates and then it started rebooting itself again. Is repairing the drive from the CD at start-up better/different than doing it inside of windows?

    you could always do a restore... which is pointless advice when you can't even get in... repair seems the only option at the moment

    on your next ... tell me about the computer as well

    insert the xp cd... reboot to it.... keep going until you get to the point at which it shows your hard drive.... you should see a selection for repair. repair it... do not mistake this for recovery console.

SYSTEM RESTORE Windows XP

Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch On until you get the Safe Mode Option.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->Click 'System Restore'


A 'System Restore' window will appear.

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next


Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '


Note: It is better if you could remember from which date you are facing the issue, try to select a date prior to that date.


The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.


Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

After reboot your problem should be resolved.

System won't boot to operating system. Error 00170019200163


Write down the exact error messages ....... that you receive while the computer is booting Windows.
  1. Click "Start > Run Type "msconfig" in the field and click "OK." Click the BOOT.INI tab.
  2. Check the box next to "/SAFEBOOT." Choose "MINIMAL" to reboot Windows in safe mode. Select "NETWORK" to reboot in safe mode with network support. Choose "DSREPAIR" to reboot in Directory Service restore mode.
  3. Click "Performance and Maintenance" in Control Panel. Select "System." Select the "Hardware" tab. Click "Device Manager." Select the device that you added to your computer most recently. Right click the device and select "Properties." Click the "Troubleshoot" button and select the option that best describes the symptoms your device is experiencing.
  4. Click on all of the plus signs next to the entries in Device Manager to expand all the devices. See if there are any black exclamation marks on a yellow triangle. This indicates a problem with your device. Also see if there are any red X marks near the devices. This indicates that the device is disabled.
  5. Click "Start > Run." Type "msconfig" and select "OK." In the BOOT.INI tab, uncheck the /SAFEBOOT option. Reboot your computer. If the computer starts normally, you're finished. If it doesn't, reboot in safe mode and click "Start > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > System Restore. and Select "Restore my computer to an earlier time." Choose a date on the calendar that is at least one day prior to the time that your computer began experiencing boot problems.
  6. Reinstall any software programs or hardware you removed one at a time. Reboot the computer after each installation. Make careful notes of any error messages or boot problems you experience.
All the Best

Computer wont install windows strange problems ensue.


are you pressing any key to boot from the cd when you get that message??

after windows finishes copying all the installation files during the first stage (dos mode) of the os installation you get a reboot, after the reboot, you should get that message that says press any key to boot from the cd, DON'T PRESS ANY KEY (or you will start again), leave it cd in.. just don't press any key... hopefully the installation process will continue on it's own onto the next stage (graphical mode).

if the computer just goes back to the dos mode without you pressing anything the problem may actually be a real problem and it may require further troubleshooting..

see how that goes with the first suggestion and post back if needed.

good luck

No signal from computer to monitor 8/13/08!


I had the exact same problem!! Drove me crazy for days. Couldn't find any answers online, contacted Gateway tech support and they told me my warranty was expired but they'd be happy to discuss my issue for $2 per minute. Gateway can **** it!!

At first I thought the problem might be a malfunctioning NVIDIA card, a problem with my DVI cable, or the monitor itself. But, after turning off the computer, unplugging the DVI cable, replugging the DVI cable and restarting the computer, I noticed I could get the firmware flash screen to show, including the BIOS menu boot and the Gateway system reinstall screen to show. As soon as the Windows flash logo would display, however, the monitor would drop out and display the dreaded "No Signal" error.
This indicated the problem was a software one and not hardware! The cable, monitor and video card were all working fine. Then I remembered that Windows installed its automatic update a few days prior. In fact...

THE PROBLEM TURNED OUT TO BE A WINDOWS UPDATE INSTALLED A FEW DAYS PRIOR.

After succesfully booting into safe mode (F8 during the flash/bootup screens), I went to Add or Remove programs in the control panel, clicked on the "Show Updates" box on the top, and uninstalled the Windows update from a few days prior to the occurance of the error. After a reboot the problem was solved.

I hope this will help anybody else struggling with this error!

If Windows is continuously loading up to 800x600 then your drivers are not being installed. Are you using the the 169.21 Nvdia Forceware package? What OS?
