Gateway laptop computer freezes during system recovery

My gateway laptop had a registry problem which I tried to correct by following the instructions given to fix the exact problem.After restarting the computer right afterwards the keyboard and mouse stopped functioning. Since I couldn't get my computer to react without the cursor or keyboard I ran the system recovery discs. i did a full wipe after trying to do the partial wipe three times. the full wipe I did twice. For each of the cycles of system recovery the computer would go halfway though the 'recognizing hardware' routine and stop. I let it go once overnight and it was still halfway in the morning. The system recovery program won't finish.

Turn the computer off, then start it back up and press the f2 key repeatedly til a blue screen called the BIOS screen comes up, press the right arrow on your keyboard so it goes to the advanced tab. go down to speedstop and disable it, press f10 to save changes and start computer over. Now it will work no freezing :)

If you made your recovery discs, then call up gateway and tell them you have defective discs, they will send you the factory install discs for free, try them and I bet you will have better results....Restore discs you make yourself are extreemly picky and are easliy ruined if something happens while youo are burning them (someone sends you an IM or email, windows auto updates) with all the hidden processes running in the background any one of them could have caused a glitch while you were making recovery cd's

If you want to return the state of the pc to the day you purchased you will either need to use the recovery partition or recovery disc.

Recovery Partition:
  1. Hold down the ALT key and repeatedly tap f10 as the computer boots up
  2. Choose restore from recovery partition
  3. Follow onscreen instructions

Computer turns on but will not load windows. Freezes after gateway comes on. Plus cannot start in safemode


Enter the BIOS and ensure that the Hard drive is indeed being seen by the computer.

Open up the chassis side panel and ensure that all conections are making contact.

Lenovo r61 keeps on freezing after login


It is also important to remove the suspicious applications and programs in the computer to avoid Windows freezing. In this type of infection not only your Windows registry gets corrupted and needs massive repair but also there is virus based penetration in the Windows set up. In this situation it is recommended to conduct a virus scan as well.However, if your Windows freezes up, the best solution is to repair the computer registry.use registry cleaner reg in out
computer restarting Click Start and Open the Control Panel 2. Go to System and Maintenance, Click on System. 3. Select Advanced System Settings and choose Advance tab. 4. Under Startup and Recovery, click on Settings. 5. Under System failure uncheck Automatically restart. Another cause for random reboots is that the computers processor is getting too hot. To check this, enter the computers bios during boot (usually by pressing Delete, F1 or F10 when the computer just starts) and there will be an option about the computers temperature (often under "PC Health"). U can have registry error.Run a registry cleaner reg in out

Hi Heather,

It seems the Operating system on your computer is not functioning correctly due to a virus issue or some system file or registry entry is corrupted.

I would suggest you to kindly try to do a system recovery using the following method.

If you are using Windows XP, reboot the computer and Start tapping the F10 key on your keyboard repeatedly. You would get the System recovery screen. Just follow the instructions on the screen and complete the recovery process.

If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7 then reboot the computer and keep tapping the F11 key till you see loading Windows files. When you get the Recovery manager Screen Click on Advance options and select the choice which says "Restore my computer to original Factory Condition" Just follow the instructions on the screen and complete the recovery process.

This will reload the original Operating system and the computer would be loaded to Factory settings.

Black Gateway screen Help


I had a problem starting up from the black screen. I went the route of restoring the laptop not know of a possible "common" problem. The following is what I used for my system restore to get my laptop running, perhaps by following the steps to change the bios it might also fix your problem. If anything it doesn't hurt to try at this point.

URL: http://forums.techguy.org/hardware/582490-freezing-during-full-system-restore.html

do these steps to disable SpeedStep in the BIOS Setup Utility and then run System Restore again on your computer.
1. Turn on the computer and begin pressing the F2 key in one-second intervals. If you perform this step correctly, you see the BIOS Setup Utility menu. If Windows loads normally, repeat this step.

2. In the BIOS Setup Utility, press the RIGHT ARROW key to select the Advanced menu.

3. On the Advanced menu, change the Intel SpeedStep setting from Enabled to Disabled.

4. Press the RIGHT ARROW key to select the Exit menu.

5. On the Exit menu, select Save Changes and Exit

6. Restart the computer and run System Restore.

7. After completing the restore, download and install the Critical Update for Windows XP (KB885626) package from the Microsoft Web site.

8. Once the KB885626 package is installed, re-enable Intel SpeedStep in the BIOS Setup Utility.
