    I bought this laptop at Staples, and it has been working fine since then. Wendesday nite it was working fine. I haven't loaded much on the system expect a few games.
    Today when trying to boot my computer, it doesn't load up. The light for the AC adapter is on, the power button will turn on as well. When it does load up, the hard drive button blinks for a few moments, and the dvd drive runs for a few cycles, then nothing. The power light still stays on, as well as the ac adapter.

    I tried to unhook the ac and battery to see if it would help, but nothing. If i try to put a disk into the dvd it sounds like it is running for a bit again, but the screen stays blank. It does sound like maybe a fan is running as well.

    Is this an operating system issues? or a computer issues?
    Should I take it back to the store for a refund?
    I really did like using this product and this is my newest laptop in over 7 years.

No booting cursor at all. no screen light sometimes

it might be the hard disk or maybe it can simply be fixed by reinstaling windows.

Gateway t 1625 laptop not booting

If u can, try to reformat it, reason i say this simple solution is because u already had the laptop looked at professionally, and due to you're laptop being stuck at the windows screen, i see this happen on HDD swaps a lot. The HDD needs to be repair-formatted or fully reformatted to talk to the new mobo when switched out, try this if all else fails, i personally think giving this simple solution may fix the boot up issue, but do make sure ur friend who looked at your laptop hadn't reset ur C MOS and may of not reconfigured it, this may also be the main cause of boot up troubles so make sure everything looks fine in ur BIOS. Gabriel will have a more proper solution than this but i believe by doing this it may help u bypass ur loading issue

Try tapping on F11 after you turn the laptop on, and see if it will go into the recovery mode. If it does, you are in luck, and can choose how you want to do the recovery.

If it does not, you can order a set of recovery disks from HP for about $15us which includes shipping costs. Or, you can load any retail version operating system, and download/install device drivers from»

Good luck, and please rate my response.

Thank you
