Actually there is no solution, the hard drive is bad.
What I ended doing was recording the partition in iso. ( I had a Factory Partition)
Got a new hard drive 160G scorpio unfortunately it does not come with installation disc.
Installed Vista, and with vista created a partition and then installed the contents of the factory partition.

The easiest way to narrow down the problem would be to boot the computer with a copy of Ubuntu.

You can either create a boot cd or convert a flash drive into a bootable drive. The flash drive boots much much quicker so I definitely recommend you following the creation method for that on Ubuntu's download page. If you don't have a flash drive, don't worry, the boot cd will still work ;)

One thing to note is your computer's boot order. Usually pressing F12 on a Gateway will bring up a temporary menu so you can select your copy of Ubuntu. If not enter the BIOS setup menu and change your boot order.

Once the Ubuntu launch screen comes up just choose TRY UBUNTU this will create a live session.

If Ubuntu works without any hitches then it's likely a Windows software issue OR a hardware issue.

You can run a trail version of HDD REGENERATOR to physically scan the hard drive exactly like Ubuntu, LIVE.

If it comes back clean then YES, it's a windows software issue. Which entails more testing and button pushing.

Try the above and let me know how everything turns out.

Gateway M-6340u laptop won't boot


the gateway hang indicates to things either a bios problem or a failing hard drive,sometimes when hard drives start getting old they take a while to spin up and/or has difficulty finding the boot sector,you also have corrupt files which would indicate a failing hard drive.

Try just restarting your computer the hard drive will already be warmed and spun up so the Gateway screen may pass faster.

Try running this prog to diagnose a failing hard drive,it will run in the background so just uninstall it your drives fine.

On the bios side the only thing I recommend trying are loading optimised defaults and Safe defaults.

0x00000070 error means that Windows start up failed in an early stage.
If you are unable successfully boot into Windows because of the this error, Windows has an option to reload registry information from the last successful boot. To revert to the last successful boot:
  1. Reboot the computer.
  2. Near the end of the BIOS messages or graphic, but well before anything appears from Windows, press the F8 key. You may only have a few seconds to get the right spot to press F8 before it attempts to go into Windows. If the BIOS complains about a pressed key or asks you to go into BIOS setup, you've pressed F8 too soon (Don't go into BIOS setup).
  3. When successful, you should see a back screen with white text "Windows Advanced Options". Use the up or down arrow keys to highlight Last Known Good Configuration and press Enter.
  4. If this does not work you may have already reformatted the original disk partition. If that is the case you will have to re-install windows from scratch.

If you get no display at all, it could be failed memory.
Find and open the memory slot, remove and reinstall whatever memory module you find and retry it.
Many systems I've seen will do absolutely nothing if memory is faulty; they do not give any POST beeps, displays or start to read from the hard drive.
The hard drive will spin up when power is applied but will not start their own self-test or look for the boot sector if bad memory is in play.
Good luck-

My Gateway GT4010 PC keeps rebooting itself before


Try replacing the hard drive cable. If that doesn't fix the problem, then you may have bad RAM, bad motherboard or a bad power supply. Sounds like a hardware issue and not software. try booting your computer in safe mode since it doesn't load all the device drivers. If it still reboots then you'll have to keep swapping parts and booting up the computer to isolate the problem.

Gateway computer does not turn on


Without seeing the machine, I'm thinking you have a motherboard problem. But try these troubleshooting steps before throwing in the towell:
Open the case and disconnect the CD cable. Now try it. If it still doesn't work, disconnect the hard drive and try it.
Let me know what happens. I've seen CDs mess up a system like this. I many times will swap out the power supply, but I'm thinking with the lights flashing, its a more serious problem.
