Screen says to reboot, have no reboot device,unable to doanything to this computer, only 2 years old.have called my internet co.andmicrosoft. they tell me computer is atfault. please help


Gateway is responsible for any hardware issues with your computer. Neither the internet service provider nor the operating system manufacturer has anything to do with the hardware. Your Gateway has a power on button on its case. You may have to hold the button in for several seconds to shut it down but as you have not accessed the OS, that won't harm the hard drive. Once it's shut down, repress the power button to turn it back on and hopefully it will power up completely to the Windows or Linux OS you are using.

usually it refer to a power failure or a problem on the mobo. reset the bios; shut off the power, remove all the physical devices on the mobo except the cpu (remove also the ram modules). if it beep and stay on then shut off the power and add a component; if it work shut off and add another and so on. find the faulty item. it can be also the ram not properly set in the bios or other bios parameters. load default bios parameters and try.

Gateway MT6840 unexpectedly shut down and wouldn't


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Media test failure message. Reboot and Select proper boot device


A hard disk failure can be catastrophic if it jeopardizes the data stored on your computer.


In addition to rendering a laptop inoperable, a failed hard disk can damage other files stored on the drive as well.


It is critical to determine whether an actual drive failure has taken place, and there are several steps to troubleshoot a drive before hard disk failure can be declared.



Unplug any devices such as printers, speakers, cameras and other external peripherals. Boot the laptop by pressing the power key.


If this does not result in a successful boot, try booting Windows in "Safe Mode."

Reboot the computer, and hold down the F8 key this will vary depending on your computer and operating system


From the menu choices, choose "Boot Windows in Safe Mode".


If the boot up progresses, then the computer is likely experiencing a software issue, not a hard drive failure.


Reset the hard drive.


This will involve turning off laptop (removing the battery is a good move, too) opening the laptop unit, and unplugging all connections and cables from the hard drive.


If possible, replace the hard drive with another drive.

This will help determine if the hard drive is causing the problem.


Plug all connections back in to the hard drive, and reboot the computer.

Repeat Step 2 if necessary.


If the computer does not reboot, the laptop is more than likely experiencing a hard drive failure and will probably have to be repaired by vendor.


hope this helps

What will happen to the hard drive in power failure?


Power failure as in whole house power failure? Or the computer's power supply failure?
Whole house failure, nothing, the computer will shut off and require rebooting, at which time you may receive a message the computer was not properly shut down, just continue as normal.
Computer power supply failure, same thing, nothing, except the computer will not reboot as the power supply has failed.

My computer starts to boot then once it is completed the a message comes up saying there is an error and then a blue screen comes up and reboots itself. THis continues and does not stop


When starting up, press the F8 key to catch the Boot Menu. Select the option to disable automatic restart on system failure. Boot and when it fails the Blue Screen will remain for you. Look near the top and see what file has been identified as the failure i.e. NV4_disp.dll. (Google the file name to see what program or hardware the failed file is associated with) Press and Hold the power button to shut down. Turn the computer back on and press the F8 key again to catch the Boot menu, and select Safe mode. If allowed into Safe Mode, try to go into Device Manager and either disable the failing device, or remove the associated program. If this doesn't work you can try to do a system restore to a date before this error started to appear. If you post back the file causing the blue screen, I can instruct you further.

My Dell Computer says it has to shut down, then reboots and comes up with "hard disk failure", I push F1 and it loads back up ok.


First open cpu cabinet and reconnect all connection to harddisk .
Also refix RAM memory.
Then when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios then check your harddisk is detected proeprly.
aslo go to boot option and set first boot device as your harddisk.
Some times because of bed SATA or IDE cable is detected in bios but it not boot up.
So change sata or IDE cable .

Let me know if you need more assistanse.
Thanks.

My computer won't shut down it just keeps restarting


The most common shut down problem is that the system will reboot rather than shutting down. In most cases, the reboot is triggered because Windows XP is designed to reboot after a critical failure. To stop windows from rebooting in case of a failure, you need to take the following steps:
Right click on My Computer, Select Properties, Click on advance tab, Click on Settings under Startup and Recovery, Uncheck the option Automatically Restart under System failure, Click Ok twice and try to shutdown the pc. If it shows any error code then let me know

Computer will not turn on


The only things that can do this are: A card failure, a hard drive failure, Motherboard faiulre, A Power Supply failure, Faulty RAM. To toubleshoot.. disconnect Hard Dive, CD/DVD remove any & all cards, see if it boots,if it does, add the Hard Drive, reboot, then add the CD/DVD, reboot, then replace A card, reboot & so on... until ya find the faulty component, that stops it. If it doesn't remove ram & see if it powers up, it will NOT boot. If it doesn't ya PSU is most probably faulty. If it does ya RAM/motherboard is faulty. So basically strip it down see if it powers up. than add things one at a time to find the culprit.. then replace the ofending item.
