Did you add any device recently or installed a program before this happened? If your response is yes, then take out the device and try to restart. else, retsrt your system and press the F8 key to show you the boot options. start the computer on safe mode, and remove the newly installed program or roll back the system to a safer date when your system had no problem. Cheers!

Windows PC and graphics card that supports DVI ports with dual-link digital bandwidth and VESA DDC standard for plug-and-play setup. You can check the specification of the graphic card and see whether they support those. For the cable if they are not in the box of the display, you can check the following ones.

Gateway 420gr the HL DT ST DVDRAM GSA 4120B reads and burn CDs /cannot read DVDs inc Restore DVD


It's time to spend $40 to buy a replacement CD/DVD-writer.
There's no way to "fix" your "half-gassed" DVD-drive.
A technician would charge at least $25 to _look_ at your computer.
Instead, "invest" the $25 in a replacement.

Gateway 420GR will not boot up


Try hit F8 before gateway screen start last known. Start the computer using the last known good configuration
  1. When you see the message Please select the operating system to start, press F8.
  2. Use the arrow keys to highlight Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER.
  3. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot system, choose the installation that you need to access using the arrow keys, and then press ENTER.
note.gif Notes
  • Choosing Last Known Good Configuration provides a way to recover from problems such as a newly added driver that may be incorrect for your hardware. It does not solve problems caused by corrupted or missing drivers or files.
  • When you choose Last Known Good Configuration, only the information in registry key HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet is restored. Any changes you have made in other registry keys remain.
  • NUM LOCK must be off before the arrow keys on the numeric keypad will function.
If this doesn't work you go into setup and make sure your system is finding your hard drive or you will have to find your restore disk. mysleuth
