My sister has a two-plus-year-old MT6840 that just had the battery replaced. However, both before that issue and since she has had trouble with her display. The computer will load as though it is starting...


The easiest way to narrow down the problem would be to boot the computer with a copy of Ubuntu.

You can either create a boot cd or convert a flash drive into a bootable drive. The flash drive boots much much quicker so I definitely recommend you following the creation method for that on Ubuntu's download page. If you don't have a flash drive, don't worry, the boot cd will still work ;)

One thing to note is your computer's boot order. Usually pressing F12 on a Gateway will bring up a temporary menu so you can select your copy of Ubuntu. If not enter the BIOS setup menu and change your boot order.

Once the Ubuntu launch screen comes up just choose TRY UBUNTU this will create a live session.

If Ubuntu works without any hitches then it's likely a Windows software issue OR a hardware issue.

You can run a trail version of HDD REGENERATOR to physically scan the hard drive exactly like Ubuntu, LIVE.

If it comes back clean then YES, it's a windows software issue. Which entails more testing and button pushing.

Try the above and let me know how everything turns out.

Start the computer and it shows gateway then window xp loading then the screen is blank


The user settings are corrupted. Try to boot in Safe Mode and in there disable all programs that are loaded at boot.
If you can't boot in Safe Mode then the corruption is too great to fix, you will have to reinstall. If you need to recover/backup your files then , before reinstalling, boot with a Linux Live-CD and copy them.

check the BIOS version, if there is an update for it on the gateway site apply it. a checksum error in CMOS BIOS cannot be overcome and you will always have to deal with this issue if no bios updates are available. There is a slim chance that you can revert back to an earlier version.

Can we install fedora 11 on Intel d102gcc2 mother board ; I tried couple of time earlier to install various fedora versions , but all went in vain, I think the problem is with sata drivers , please advice!


If you've used live CD Boots, you could try and add nomodeset to the kernel line in the grub boot menu. This would disable kernel mode setting, which causes problems on some graphics cards.

In the BOOT Menu, Press TAB while highlighting "BOOT" Option

Just add "nomodeset" to the end of the text..This disables Kernel Mode Setting and F11 will be up and running....

If display issue: connect an external monitor to see if any change.

Could be spyware - boot in Safe Mode (F8) - download, install and run SpyBot (spybot.com).

Good luck.
