Make sure you do not have a floppy disk in the floppy drive, if there is one. Also, remove any CDs or DVDs in those drives, and remove any USB jump/flash/thumb drives from those sockets too.
Then try again.

When I turn the system on it shows the "GATEWAY" logo. Then goes to another screen and says "enter password" but I forgot the password.


If this is a BIOS password, you'll need to open up the tower and look for a jumper that says 'reset bios' or 'reset CMOS'. Move the jumper to the other pins and turn the computer on. NOTE: check to make sure your model needs to be turned on or not. When it beeps, turn it off. Then move the jumper back to its original position and start normally. Hope this helps.

Getting detecting array message


And what else? If the system just hangs at detecting it's expecting to find an array of hard drives attached to the system. Do you have an array that it can boot to? Does it load the OS finally? Was it working before? Did you make changes to the bios ro the array controller bios?

Getting detecting array after opening workstation to dust. Did I move something? Anyone have a picture of inside and what goes into what.? When I turn off power source it says warning, now system is in...


I'm guessing you asked amore generic question earlier. If you were dusting you've probably inadvertently unplugged one or more hard drives. Make sure all the cables are seated properly and try again. You can turn off the error message by entering the bios and resetting the error message or tuning it off all together.

My MSI windpad won't turn on, it only shows the animated MSI logo over and over and it won't even turned off.


this shows that the hard disk of computer may be corrupt, or the operating system may gone bad, check these, or re-installtion of OS is recommended in such case

This is the strangest thing I've ever seen. I have a Gateway FPD1975W TFT Monitor and its always worked great. The other day it went into a sleep mode via windows, and now it wont boot up the input...


Hello,

Your monitor problem is causes by the power supply. What is happening is the power supply voltages are not stable, just enough to power the unit up. When you connect it to a video signal the power demands slightly increase and the power supply can't handle it. This is a very common problem with LCD after a few years of use. The issue with the power supply is the capacitors have started to fail. These parts are used to filter the output voltage and when they start to fail the outputs start rippling hence the problem you are having. Here is a link to a repair article that shows how to repair the Gateway FPD1975W monitor.

I hope this helps you get back going.
