Question about Gateway Computers & Internet
The PC acted up after I tried running a video from a newly purchased external hard drive (Fantom Drives ''Green Drive'' 1 TB). When I ran the video the computer basically froze so I manually restarted it. Sometimes it will only go to the screen that ''Windows is starting up'' and do nothing more. Other times it will get to the desktop but then stop working when I try to access a program. I ran it in Safe mode which didn't improve the problem.
Is there something through BIOs I need to do or through Safe mode?
Had the same problem many moons ago all i did was to run a repair on my o/s from my xp cd sorted out the problem, hope tthis works for u 2

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps
