Question about Gateway Computers & Internet
I was using my computer, and all of a sudden it just shut down, and wouldn't start back up.. So I switched it back on and pushed the"F12" and put in the #1 disc of the recovery, and kept on going till all 3 discs were done. Then the computer turned itself off, then back on, and now all I get is a black screen with a blinking cursor---Please help me. My computer is 18 months old, it WAS running on Windows 7, and hopefully it will be again. Thank you
The problem was most likely a heat problem. So, that problem is still there. Switch it off and remove the cables. Then, take off the side panel and look at all the dust inside. Using a very soft 1 inch paint brush, gently loosen the dust on the fans and around the insides. (You could use a can of air from a computer shop to do the same job, this will stop you causing any damage to the delicate parts on the motherboard.) Then re-assemble the case and connect the cables turn it on and see what happens.

#1 Sounds like a video card resolution setting problem. This can happen when the settings are too high for the monitor. What size is your monitor?
#2 Sounds like hibernation. You can adjust the power settings if you right click your desktop and select "properties" . The select screen saver and then power settings.
#3 Sounds like the bios settings have been modified to boot from other places than the hard drive. Make sure nothing is in the computer when you boot like CDs, Floppy disks. When the computer first turns on hit "F2" to enter the bios. Then look for boot order in one of the drop down menus at the top. It will tell you how change the boot order usually on the right hand side ont he screen.
I hope some of this helps you.

Please check for the cables coming into the motherboard from the power supply. Also try and check for any loose cables.
If that doesn't help then please get your power supply changed as its faulty.
Please rate this solution.

Use your installation CD for Windows that came with your computer, and boot to the CD. (Usually, pressing the F12 key will offer your boot options such as "Boot to CD.")
Once booted on to the CD, it will offer you several options - Do NOT reinstall Windows - you want to choose the Repair Option.
When the repair stuff has loaded (You may have to select which volume you wish to work on, if so just pick the number that is next to your C drive.) and you are at the prompt that looks like "C:>" you will want to type in the following, without the quotation marks.
"chkdsk c: /r"
It will take a while for it to work all its magic, but that should fix your problem!
When it is finished, you can simply push the power button on your computer to turn it off.
When you next turn it on, it should be happier.

You need to get into the bios of your system and setup the date, time, and disable floppy boot. You may also want to clean any/all dust/dirt/hair from your system and make sure your fans are working. Sounds like your cmos battery failed (you changed that) and that your processor/motherboard is failing due to overheating

Try to find a system restore on the computer without using the disks. Restore it to a previous time maybe a month ago if possible.
