Question about Gateway Profile 4 Notebook

Open Question

Gateway DS Profile 4X

Not sure what is up. When I power on the pc, all I get is a "white" screen. It never loads up the BIOS or the OS. I cannot access the BIOS. It just powers on as "white" and that is all. Could this be a video thing or something else?

You get the blue screen of death because the operating system is not starting up, either because the OS is badly corrupted by virus of some form, or in your case the hard drive has failed (the clicking)
The bios is not the issue. Your best hope is a clean OS install if its a virus and the hard drive is good.

Sounds like u need to go into CMOS (System Setup) upon boot & make sure that the HARD DRIVE is the FIRST item in the BOOT ORDER and NOT your CD DRIVE. Also, make sure your Hard Drive shows up in the CMOS. If it does, then note what it says about the hard drive as it boots... If it is a bad hard drive, then nothing will install to it unless it is fixed or replaced.

Black Screen with White bar is when Windows Vista loading. So it seems there is maybe problem with Windows.
When your Toshiba is starting up - try press F12 to enter Bios, to check if everything is OK.
If you have Vista on CD/DVD - you can try press "C" on keyboard when Toshiba start, to boot from CD/DVD and start to repair your OS, or reinstall it completely.

My pc boots, the the screen is completely black.


If you can see the bios screen at the boot . After that your screen is black.
The OS might be corrupted I suggest you to reinstall the OS by using the re-installation Disc.

If you are getting any beep sound then the error codes of one long beep & 2 short beep Indicates a video error has occurred and the BIOS cannot initialize the video screen to display any additional information.


If you don't see the bios screen & beeps, there might be problem with the screen or the VGA chip in the motherboard.

If so I suggest you to contact the service center near by.


I am sure this will be helpful for you.

your screen may be broken.
Do you see the BIOS message at the beginning of the boot up? If you don't, then the screen or the video card/circuit is dead
