Question about Gateway 504GR PC Desktop
My pc just stays in a boot up loop. It goes to the start up modes(safe,normal,etc) No matter what I choose it keep going back to the same screen. I can activate bios and recovery(only for complete recovery back to original factory setting. I need some files copied before I do this. Any suggestions.
I fixed mine. I took the hard drive out and hooked it to my friend's computer with the intention of copying the files to his portable drive. I just attached one of the power harness plugs to the drive and plugged the blue harness to his computer's board. We started the computer. Before I could copy anything, the computer started scanning my drive. It deleted tons of corrupt files, did some other stuff, and then started recovering the files that were corrupt. The computer then started and I could see all of my files on the K: drive. The computer recognized my drive as K: and L:. I copied the files to the portable drive and then reinstalled my drive into my computer. I turned it on and it fired right up just like it used to. I was pretty amazed that my friend's computer fixed mine.

You can't get into safe mode at all
try continuosly pressing f8 while restarting then try to access safe mode from there

If that's so, use your operating system disc. Just use the REPAIR option, not the Install a fresh copy of the operating system. You don't have to worry because it will not remove your files saved in your harddisk. It will stay intact if you choose Repair. It will just repair the missing/corrupted file in your system.
