Bad news. Your hard drive has had a SMART failure and subsequently crashed. If your data was important, I would get the computer to a skilled professional as soon as possible. Ideally, you can get them to make an image of your drive. That will get you back to right before the crash. If they can't do that, there are data recovery places like gillware.com that can help you out for a flat fee.

It sounds like one of two things, either your hard drive is bad, or the formatting on your hard drive is so bad Windows cannot deal with it. To troubleshoot it try booting the computer up with a live run CD or a bootable USB drive and see if the hard drive is accessible . If you booted up with a live run CD or bootable USB drive that has an operating system on it you can reformat the drive (provided it opens) and that will do it. If it does not open, or is not accessible you will have to replace the hard drive

1.Check your power supply by using an Analog Volt Meter, you should check if the power supplied by your power supply is stable,

2.Check your ram if it is faulty. try to clean the lids of the ram using an eraser. If still your computer doesnt work, you should find a spare RAM and test if your RAM is working properly.

3.If you dont have any problems with your RAM, you should try unplugging external PCI cards, AGP Cards, on your motherboard and use the internal devices instead, like built in VGA, sound card, Network Interface Card,just to check if there are no faulty devices which stopped your computer from starting.

Hope this will helped you out mate :)

Computer will not boot


Does your pc make a different noise than usual when you turn it on? If it sounds like clicking (loud) then your hard drive has crashed. You will need to replace it.

Download some free hard drive testing software, like seagate tools,from:  Seagate.com  or another had drive manufactor. They run from a disk w/o windows . If the hard drive checks out try reinstalling the system. Another quick test , for conformation is to hook up you monitor to anther computer just to make sure it is not the monitor. It rarely is.

2002 gateway profile shutdown problem


You need to uninstall the graphic drivers for the card and install new ones from the makers site.

This can be done in device manager by right clicking in the display adapter and then uninstall. Then reboot and install the new up to date ones. Sounds like the ones you have in now are damaged or corrupt.

Doesnt explain the slowdown though sorry :(
