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.

Can I hook my Mac Cinema HD Display 2005 model to my gateway 420GR? If so, what do I need in the way of an adapter?


Windows PC and graphics card that supports DVI ports with dual-link digital bandwidth and VESA DDC standard for plug-and-play setup. You can check the specification of the graphic card and see whether they support those. For the cable if they are not in the box of the display, you can check the following ones.

did you add any device recently or installed a program before this happened? If your response is yes, then take out the device and try to restart. else, retsrt your system and press the F8 key to show you the boot options. start the computer on safe mode, and remove the newly installed program or roll back the system to a safer date when your system had no problem.

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

Fails to boot


You might try a Hirens Boot CD, un-zip the files, create a bootable cd from the .ISO file and boot your troubled system, select virus scan on boot.
