    Sounds like it is not setecting your hard drive. Try to boot it with your installation cd and see if it sees the hard drive.

Either Hard Drive failure or you need to reinstall the Operating System on the Mac. Good luck.

I have a gateway nv79u and it wont stay on for more than 30 mins. It keeps shutting off with error code 41 kernal-power.


Hi Michael,

Kernel Power - Error Code 41 often times caused by conflicting drivers. If you are trying to play a game or watching videos then the computer suddenly turns off, you must first check the following:

1. Open Device Manager (click Start > type Device Manager) and go to Sound, Video, and Game Controllers and see you have two audio drivers installed and disable one at a time and see if it fixes the issue.

2. Boot into Safe mode (press F8 continuously upon boot up) and see if the computer still shuts down there. (If it doesn't try disabling start-up items using this guide

3. If you're pop-up error messages like "System services cannot be started" upon boot-up, you're operating system is corrupted and must be restored to default settings. (you need to press F11 upon boot up - remember to backup your important files)

3. If Step 2 above is true, check if the computer is overheating. If it does, the computer needs to be serviced. Contact gateway support at 1-800-846-2000.


Cheers.

When i start my gateway netbook lt20 a black screen pops up asking to start windows normally or 3 other options.. why?does this happen?


Usually because you didn't shut windows down properly before turning your computer off or completely draining your battery. If that is the case then simply select start windows normally and as long as you follow the correct shut down procedure it shouldn't happen again. If it does there may be a problem with your windows instalation.

Please oh please help me. Acer laptop aspire 5920 Windows vista Home premium OEMAct First it shut down and this message came on: Broad com UNDI PXE-2. 1 v9.4.5 Then I shut it down and turn it on pressed...


Your computer tries to "boot" from several sources:
* your disk-drive
* your CD-ROM drive
* any USB device
* from a "boot-server" computer connected to your computer via an Ethernet cable

So, you computer tried to boot from the Broadcom Ethernet adapter, trying to "talk" to that "network boot server", via PXE ("Pre eXecution Environment").

What this probably means is that the computer failed to boot from the disk-drive, and so it tried the "alternate" boot-devices. If the disk-drive is disconnected (no power and/or no data cable) or if the disk-drive is "dead", then Windows cannot be loaded from it.

Take your computer to a qualified technician for professional trouble-shooting.

Try rebootint with your OSX disk in the dvd drive. then before you would hear the chime, press and hold the C key down on your keyboard. This will boot from the DVD and once it has finished loading (may take some time) will ask your to choose your language. After this go to utilities in the menu at the top and click on Disk Utility. When this opens, click on your hard drive on the left hand side (highighted in orange in picture), and then click repair disk and after that completes click repair permissions. (see picture)fairplay23.png After all of this shut down and restart your computer without the OSX dvd in the drive and it should boot normally.
Let me know if this works

You can try to download memtest and test the memory for errors. But you will have to make a boot disk to run the program properly.

Here is a link for the memtest software that you can download and burn to a cd.

Hope it helps

The disc drive will no longer pop open


This happens from time to time. Could be time for a new disk drive. In the mean time,

Shut down the computer for about five seconds and then turn it back on. Start pressing the key that gets your computer into its BIOS settings.

***To enter the BIOS, press the Esc key when the Toshiba script shows up on the display. You should then get a message to press the F1 key to continue. Press the F1 key and you should be in the BIOS. The Boot sequence is on Page 2 of the Bios settings on many Toshibas. To get to page 2 press the page down key. Make sure you follow the screen prompts because your system may be slightly different.***

That key is different on many brands of computers. It may be displayed which key it is on your screen on boot time; but, that message comes and goes quickly.Once in the BIOS, do not make any changes to settings. Simply attempt to open your CD drive. If it will not open while the BIOS screen is open, you have a hardware problem. If it does open, you have an Operating System problem.

That being said - you can open the disk drive manually by inserting a paper clip or push pin into the hole in the front ot the drive. (see picture below)
