Try booting into safe mode by pressing F8 when boot up starts. Choose safe mode. When it's booted up, right click on "my Computer" and choose properties. Click on advanced and choose the advanced tab. Go to performance and change the settings of Virtual Memory to what Windows Recommends.Restart.

Installed windows 7 and now its giving error that disk is full and runs very slow

If you have an old copy of windows 98 or 95,I have in the past installed one of these and it repaired the disk while installing,then installed windows 7,you could also try a low levell format but would need an external enclosure or a live disk to run from or go to and do a checkdisk scan(do this at night may take all night and sometimes never finishes)the last one wont require reinstalling windows.

My gateway essential 400 cant run newer programs **** *** window 7... or explorer 8... or flashplayer 10... how can i upgrade my computer 2 make it run these programs ? a new hard drive ? or what do i do...


You can add hard drive if your system doesnt have enough space for the new programs. If the new programs installs well but is running slow or not starting, then you will have to upgrade your RAM and for better performance, fix one graphics card suitable for *********** board. If you can spend more, Upgrade *********** board and processor.

Blue error screen won't reboot or do anything

This is called "The Blue Screen of Death". Essentially you have to format the drive in most cases, and reinstall the Operating System. This occurs when there is a major conflict with a driver and Windows protects itself by not loading. You can try using your recovery disk if you have one. The other thing you can try is loading a new copy of windows in a diffrent directory like "XP2". The laptop will ask you which version of Windows you want to load and chose the second entry for XP. This is only if you need to get at your files to back-up. You will still need to format and install Windows again as this method is sloppy.

Hi I got a problem with my gateway laptop hope you could help me ?

if you have a blue screen on the start up you will need to use the windows cd to fix the installation. do a repair install, don't go into repair console when asked simply continue the setup and when it finds your windows installed select to repair the installation.

Monitor not working

Hello Chrispa22, Rest assured, it isn't a fried motherboard. If it had been you woun't see anything on the screen. It's as simple as this. Your problem is related with the windows instalation you currently have. Try to boot the windows in safemode to see if the problem still manifests. If you have 2 partitions on the hard disk move all important data to the one not containing the windows files. The cleanest way to fix this would be to reinstall windows. Format the C: partition to make yourself a clean install. After the install everything should be fine. If you need more assistance please reply back or contact me on the live assistance.
