Gateway laptop vista unresponsive on startup

I get past the Gateway logo and make it to the error message saying Windows failed to start. It suggests Windows files were damaged or corrupted and recommends to use startup repair. It offers me two options: Launch startup repair, or start windows normally. Additionally, sometimes there's a countdown where upon 0 it launches startup repair. If I use the arrow keys to change options during the countdown, the text is suddenly replaced with boxes and is unreadable. Anyway, either option I choose and press Enter, it proceeds to a blank black screen and is unresponsive from there. I'm forced to shutdown with the power button.

    I checked out ubuntu but I was able to solve my problem using the Memory Diagnostic Tool on the operating system disk. I can now access my files and stuff.

When your computer restarts the restoration process will begin. The process could take anywhere between 30 and 90 minutes.
Click "OK" when a dialog appears telling you that the computer has been restored to its original factory settings and that you need to reboot your Gateway Windows 7 computer.
Your computer will reboot.
After the computer restarts you will need to configure Windows 7 with your personal preferences.

We have a Gateway Laptop running on Vista. Turned it on this morning and got the "blue screen of death" that said it had a Fatal Error KnownDLL 000021a and a bunch of other numbers. We read that...


Just press and hold F8 on startup (before the Windows logo appears). You should get the screen with the title Advanced Boot Options and the following menu. (which I get on my Gateway NV5915h)

Choose Advanced Options for: Vista (Windows 7 on my Gateway NV5915h)
(Use the arrow keys to highlight your choice.)

I was told it needs reformatted the message on


If you have a windows installation disc, you can boot with it and choose repair. Let windows repair the startup files. In Vista, just boot with the disc, choose repair, vista will search the windows installations and give you the result, you highlight the installation and hit repair.

If you have XP, choose repair and when is says to exit to go to recovery console ot install, click install > click F8 to agree > windows will search for windows installations, again highlight the windows installation and choose to repair at that point, windows will attempt to fix the startup files.
