Desktop frozen with the monitor showing disorted, green blocks

I have a Gateway 420GR it boots up to the windows screen but after a minute it freezes completely, and there are these distorted green blocks all over the screen. I don't know if its the graphics card or the whole hard drive.

Try rebooting your computer with a disc or discs that came with it. That disc or discs should reinstall windows. If this does not work try getting linux or dos on a cd an try betting from the cd instead of the HDD. If this does not work either then it must your graphics card or HDD. I am leaning more towards graphics card because ussually your computer will give you a blue screen if your hard drive fails.

Gateway 420GR will not boot up


Try hit F8 before gateway screen start last known. Start the computer using the last known good configuration
  1. When you see the message Please select the operating system to start, press F8.
  2. Use the arrow keys to highlight Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER.
  3. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot system, choose the installation that you need to access using the arrow keys, and then press ENTER.

  • Choosing Last Known Good Configuration provides a way to recover from problems such as a newly added driver that may be incorrect for your hardware. It does not solve problems caused by corrupted or missing drivers or files.
  • When you choose Last Known Good Configuration, only the information in registry key HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet is restored. Any changes you have made in other registry keys remain.
  • NUM LOCK must be off before the arrow keys on the numeric keypad will function.
If this doesn't work you go into setup and make sure your system is finding your hard drive or you will have to find your restore disk. mysleuth

My Gateway 500s monitor is stuck in power save mode


Try tapping the F8 key while booting the computer, you will get the start up menu, choose safe mode, when you log on, go to the display settings, that is right click on the desktop, properties, screen saver, advanced and make sure that hibernation is off, along with turn off disks or whatever , probably see turn off monitor after XX minutes, I make ours 15 minutes (150 computers and servers), I don't let the disks turn off. Choose always on also, not home/office. Try this and see if these settings help.

LCD monitor goes blank


It appears that the display resolution set in your display properties is out of the range that the LCD can display.

Try this.

Boot to the ENABLE VGA MODE by pressing F8 to get the Windows Boot Menu. If you can get to the desktop, then go to display properties, and see if you can change the resolution to higher settings and maintain video. (If the video blanks out, then it should revert to the previous setting in 15 seconds)
