Question about Intel D945GTP Motherboard
It's either a BIOS issue or a driver issue. It's probably not a monitor or display adapter issue as you can sometimes see the logo screen.
Do you have another monitor to test with? If so, try it just to see if we can eliminate the monitor as the cause of the problem. If another monitor works al the way through boot, then it's your monitor that's not working right.
If your monitor is fine, and when you see nothing on screen but the computer is on, what colour is the monitor power light? Is it green when you get the Gateway logo, but yellow during the times it doesn't work?
Do you get any unusual beeps when the problem occurs?
Let me know the above. In the mean time, do try resetting the BIOS. To do this, find the BIOS jumper. It's on the edge of the board, under the button cell battery. To describe better, Directly under the battery is a screwhole. On the right of the screw hole is a long connector. Ignore the right of the screwhole. Look to the left of the screwhole instead. You'll see a small white fan header with 3 pins. To the right of that, you will see a small vertical black jumper. It may be marked BIOS or CMOS or similar. That is the reset jumper. Remove the little jumper from it, and put it into the other pins. So if its in pins 1 and 2, put it in 2 and 3 instead.
Then start the computer. Wait a few seconds. You should see a maintenance menu. Use this to clear any settings. Turn off the computer. Swap the jumper again back to normal pins, start the PC and let me know if it works now.
Best of luck

PLease try to insert the windows xp cd and then go to the recovery mode and install the windows once again. Next you need to install the application on which you were building your project. Now you should be able to start working with your project.
