Gateway 4530gz blue screens

Gateway keeps bluescreening shortly after booting up. I first tried restore from previous "good" date. No luck. Then did a full restore (wiped disk clean). Still no luck. After a few minutes of action, it blue-screens and restarts.

Sounds to me like the hard drive is defective. If you are able go to the manufacturer's website of the hard drive and download and burn out their hard drive testing utility. Boot from the disc and test the hard drive. If it passes then download Memtest (free) and burn it out and boot from it and test memory. Likely one or the other is the issue

Computer has blue screen nothing comes up no way to get into the computer had an id error and now just blue screen


Some of the files had crashed... from that 120 tabs, I'm sure it's caused by a virus... Try booting on your windows original CD or Windows installer and choose Recover windows... It it does not work... you'll have to re-install everything and you'll loose most of the files. But if it works, immediately use System Restore and choose a date that you think that your computer was in a very good condition. Good Luck!!!

My gateway desktop model gt5026e shuts down/reboots automatically. i cleaned the cooling fans and made sure they were working properly but it still reboots at random,


To isolate the issue, try to boot to the BIOS screen by tapping on F2 on boot. If it goes to the BIOS and does not restart, you have good hardware components. If the issue is still eminent in the BIOS, then you have a problem with your processor. You need to have it replaced.
If it is not hardware, we need to further isolate. Boot to Safe Mode by tapping on F8 on boot. Choose either safe mode or safe mode with networking.
No issues on safe mode: then the problem is with the advanced software. Try to remember when the issue started. Restore your computer setting to previous date before the issue started. (start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore). Once you have booted to normal mode, do not forget to update your security software and scan your system.
If there are issues with safe mode: There is bigger problem with your OS. Try system restore as well. Hopefully this fixes the issue. If it does not, you need to reformat your system.
Good Luck!

Will not boot i keep getting the blue sreen


A blue screen means that Windows is corrupted beyond repairs. So, friend, you must re-install Windows on your laptop. the data will have to go as the recovery disks will per force install it in C:\Windows folder where your data is presently.
But before you resort to re-installing it,just once try booting the laptop in safe mode by pressing F8 at boot time. Select Safe Mode when the B&W age opens with choices. If it does not boot up now, then go ahead with reinstall process. If by any chance it boots up, the you can restore the Windows to an earlier date. To do that you must go to Start->Accessories->System Tools->Restore. here you will be shown restorable dates in bold numbers. Select any date that is before the trouble started. And let Windows do the job. The laptop will have to reboot once. after that it will become alright.
If not, (hopefuly not)hen reinstall Windows from the recovery CDs.

Toshiba screen press f2 for set up and f12 bios management


I guess a new software install could have caused the issue. The could be conflict between devices.

Remove all the USB devices connected to the laptop. Remove external mouse and keyboard also if any.

Try booting. If it still does not boot then restart system and keep pressing F8 to view the boot options. If you get the boot screen then choose Safe mode option and try booting in to the desktop. Once the desktop is available go to Start-> Accessories-> System Tools-> System Restore to restore your system to a previous date.

If F8 does not work then probably you can do a complete reinstall of the OS by pressing F11 or Ctrl+F11. You will lose all the data in the system using this option and the system will be restored back to its factory settings. (This option works only if the laptop has manufacturer provided OS in it)

else you need to contact Toshiba tech support for any hardware related issues

Hope it helps !
Good Luck !

Will not boot up past the wecome screen


Try to disconnect external peripherals if there is any. If no go, try to boot to safe mode. Turn the computer off, restart and tap F8 repeatedly after pushing the power button to turn it on. Choose safe mode. Once in the desktop, click start>run and type in "msconfig" without the quotation marks. Click ok. Click the 'startup' tab and click disable all. click apply. click close and then restart the computer. If it still doesn't work, post back.

Dell 1501 inspiron laptop blank screen


Hi,

Have you installed any application/program prior to the blue screen? Most blue screen causes your system not to boot to your operating system anymore. It is possible that your hard drive is crashed due to a virus infections or spywares. Incompatibility and corrupted system registry may affect your system to have blue screen as well.

You may try the following steps below.

1. Restart your computer. After you pressed the power button to restart. Keep on tapping F8 key on the keyboard on and off.

2. Boot advanced option will show up on the screen. You may boot your computer to the following option.

a. Last known good configuration
b. Safe mode with Networking.

If Safe mode w/networking works, restore your computer to an earlier using the system restore features.

Keep me posted.

Regards,

jeff

My computer starts and takes me to a black screen where it gives me a choice of " run windows normally or run from last known good configartion etc. however when i click either 1. it reboots and takes...


Did you try Command prompt only? I think it will boot and give you command prompt like C:\>.
  • Try to remove RAM, clean its connection point and then put it again. If no success then try the followings.
  1. If you get command prompt just type SCANREG and press enter.
  2. Follow the on screen instruction, it will make a backup of system files and then will list previously well booted dates.
  3. Select any one date. It will restore system files of that date and will try to boot.
  4. Then Boot normally, if no luck then try again the above process to choose another date.
  5. If still no luck then its time to take a complete installation of your OS.
Good Luck
