My gateway nv52l is stuck in boot loop and I have no CD to fix it, can someone help me?

I hit the power button and the gateway screen comes on under that it goes from saying "preparing automatic repair them switches to "diagnosing your PC". I believe this means its stuck in a bootloop? Tried unplugging taking battery out, hit f11 while turning on. Help.

You'll have to check the warranty by using the serial #.. call Acer back and just ask to see if the warranty is still active.. don't ask for tech support.. they'll route you to india and you'll be stuck again.

As for the display going out... it's a little thing called the inverter. This is very common and not too difficult to fix.
I would however NOT replace it myself since it can put out one hell of a shock.
try this:

The inverter is located just under the plastic housing below the LCD panel. You can google: LCD INVERTER ASPIRE 5100.

best wishes.. this one isn't easy..

oh and your laptop is fine.. just the part of the LCD that has gone out unfortunately.

Usually this happens when the vista boot loader fails. During boot up, keep tapping F8 and then select Disable Automatic Restart... and get the stop error code which usually starts with 0x

If it will not boot after about an hour, press and hold the power button until it powers off. Remove the battery and power supply. Wait 5minutes, fit the charger and power on but press F8 just before it tries to boot. Select Safe Mode and see what happens. It may well recover.

How do i fix my computer when it is stuck on the gateway screen.

If you PC is stuck on the gateway screen and wont respond, you will have to do a hard boot to clear this. You perform a hard boot by simply pressing the power button in and holding it until the machine turns off. You should then be able to power it back up and have your PC back. If this does not clear the problems up, message me and I will be happy to further assist you,

Computer will power up but not boot. Screen remains black. Battery charges.

If the screen's backlight doesn't come on at all, that's a new screen. You can find more from Gateway's support website. If the screen lights up but stays completely black, that's a motherboard issue, same fix. If the Gateway logo comes up but never goes into windows, that's most likely a hard drive issue, same fix. If you see an error message from Windows, that's a Windows issue. You could use the recovery DVDs that came with the system to fix that. Just put them in and turn the computer on. Press F8 repeatedly until you see an option to boot to DVD. Then follow the instructions.

Hi i have a gateway mt6705, trying to restore to new. push the on button and gateway comes across the screen. then goes to a blank screen with a blinking line in top left corner thats it. cant use cd to...

The way to restore Gateways is to hold down the ALT Key andrepeatedly hitting f10 then it should bring you to a boot sequence screen thenchoose the HDD and then hold down ALT and repeatedly hit f10 again that shouldprompt the restore feature for gateway. If that doesn't work,the only way to doit is to boot into windows and run the Recovery program.


Hope this helps,

Have DXG-506 ver.1.01 has VideoWorks6 and Mr.Photo3 came with my camera but cd will not install bought new Gateway Computer but can not install it

put the cd in the drive. go to start, then click on computer, then a box will open up with your drives. double click on the drive letter that contains the cd. the install should start there. if it does not start up, then leave the cd in the drive, and restart the computer. it should then come up. if it still does not come up, then you have to restart the computer while clicking on either the f10-f11-or f12 button. one of those should then bring you to a screen that says one time boot menu. when it does, then arrow down to your drive with the cd and hit enter. then it should say, hit any button to boot from the drive you chose. hit any button and that should load the cd. if it doesnt, then your cd is most likely defective. you can then download the cd from the manufactures web site. hope this helps you. good luck

Hope that helps

Has the fan been replaced? If not then the laptop will power itself off to protect from overheating. The fan is like a switch in the loop. Like old Xmas lights. One not working then none will work.
