You could try chkdsk /r at the prompt in safe mode?

    it's a command-line tool that checks
    volumes for problems. The tool then tries to repair any that it finds. For
    example, Chkdsk can repair problems related to bad sectors, lost clusters,
    cross-linked files, and directory errors.Just run it, then follow the directions. I haven't done it in some time, but I am pretty sure it will reboot, or prompt you to reboot. It will do no harm.

  • Haydun Feb 16, 2009

    Try it without the /r , chkdsk . Tell me what it says.

  • Haydun Feb 16, 2009

    Try chkdsk /f one more time. if nothing, reboot with ctrl + alt + del

  • Haydun Feb 16, 2009

    1. Click Start, and then Run.

    2. In Open, type cmd, and then press ENTER.

    3. Use one of the following procedures: • To run Chkdsk in read-only
    mode, at the command prompt, type chkdsk, and then press ENTER.

    • To repair errors without scanning the volume for bad sectors, at the
    command prompt, type chkdsk volume:/f, and then press ENTER.

    Note If one or more of the files on the hard disk are open, you will receive the following message:

    Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process.
    Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the
    system restarts? (Y/N)

    Type Y, and then press ENTER to schedule the disk check, and then restart your computer to start the disk check.

    • To repair errors, locate bad sectors, and recover readable
    information, at the command prompt, type chkdsk volume:/r, and then
    press ENTER.

  • Haydun Feb 16, 2009

    what are you running on your machine, and what is the make/model?

    if you've got msn, you could message me. Might make this quicker. (not sure if they allow e-mail addresses to be posted)

Gateway dx4380g-uw308 keeps restarting?

Windows 8 has a neat utility that is called "Refresh Your PC". This process does not change any of your files (documents, pics, vids, music, etc.). If you upgraded your PC from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 and your PC has a Windows 8 recovery partition, refreshing your PC will restore Windows 8. You'll need to upgrade to Windows 8.1 after the refresh has finished.

To refresh your PC

  1. Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap Settings, and then tap Change PC settings.
    (If you're using a mouse, point to the upper-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer down, click Settings, and then click Change PC settings.)
  2. Tap or click Update and recovery, and then tap or click Recovery.
  3. Under Refresh your PC without affecting your files, tap or click Get started.
  4. Follow the instructions on the screen.

What I would do is to on post pressing your PC's power on begin to click over and over till you see a screen the F8 key. Go into Safe Mode or you may be able to Start Windows Normally. If this does not work then you must either do a Recovery or Run Windows disk.

Everytime Im on line, my screen zooms in and out all on its own.

you can disable that feature. im not sure exactly where because my AA1 is currently out of commission, but go under control panel (classic view) and open the "mouse" icon and hunt for advanced settings. the zooming in and out happens when you use two fingers on the track pad. it happens to me a lot when i have my left finger on the left-click button and my right finger controlling the cursor, and i accidentally am touching the pad itself with my left finger as well.. that will zoom you in and out, depending on which way you move your fingers (together or apart). ctrl+0 (zero) will reset you to the normal screen size.
