Question about Gateway 450SX4 Notebook
I have been unable to boot up my laptop. When I turn it on, the screen is black (it looks like it's off, not like a "lit up" black) and the hard drive light does not turn on or blink and I can't hear the hard drive spinning. The fan occasionally goes on and off, like usual. I don't think there is a problem with the power because the power light goes on and I can also charge my ipod through the USB connection. Before all of this happened, I was just using my laptop like normal (I haven't installed anything new or added anything to the laptop for months) and then my laptop just turned off by itself and started to reboot. However, it would never fully reboot; it would just keep turning itself off, then start rebooting again, then turn itself off and start rebooting again. When it was doing this, it never rebooted to a point where I could see anything on the screen, like the Windows XP logo or the Compaq logo. A couple days before this incident, I heard a single beep from my laptop as it was booting up. I'm not sure if this is related, but I thought it might be worth mentioning. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I bought a laptop, the man who sold it to me said i just need to buy a charger/multiconnecter what ever u call it. I did and know i cant get passt the first screen. It has the mans name and it wants a password and theres no hint lol. I cant get pass this screen, is there any way i can erase all his stuff, and start over, like reboot is or something
