Question about Computers & Internet
Once in the log in screen my laptop will restart. I can't even get my password typed in before it restarts...
Boot up in "Mode Select" by pressing the F8 key before Windows can start loading (press F8 a few times to "catch it).
Find the menu option that says startup in "the last known good configuration" ...
It will boot up just fine after that, and it will boot ok from now on in the normal manner.
(This is a one-time fix).
Hope this helps!

There can be many reasons for this behavior. Corrupt RAM, loose connections, processor overheating, to name a few.
We will assume that your hardware is working OK and the software is the problem.
Run a thorough virus scan. Run a disk check after that to repair any damaged files. I will not recommend a registry cleaner as it can be more harm then good if used improperly.
If the problem still remains then you will need to backup your data, reformat your hard drive and reinstall OS (Windows).
Keep your drivers updated by checking your laptop manufacturer's website (Gateway in your case). Use this link to find and download appropriate drivers: Gateway Driver Download.
Install updated virus software and make sure you use your laptop in a well ventilated place. Do not use on your lap: poor air circulation can overheat it.
