This is another possibility, the socket where the adapter lead plugs into your computer, from the mains! this could be faulty dry jointed. Just thought it might be of help, Because the problem you had I had and this was the culprit!

Bad news...

If the BIOS udpate failed you're in trouble. Removing the CMOS battery will only clear the settings, not the corrupted BIOS code.

I think the only solution to this is to replace the BIOS chip or pull it out of the board and have it reprogrammed. Neither one will be cheap or easy.

I hope I'm wrong and somebody can give you better news.

I have a Gateway 3520 laptop. I formatted the hard drive and installed XP on the drive. After powering on the laptop. You see Windows XP logo and when the hard drive tries to boot I see a blue screen...


Do this:
Start the computer in safe mode.
If it starts OK, then click on Start and Run and then type in msconfig.
In the next window go to the startup tab (upper right of the window).
When the tab opens, at the lower right, click on disable all.
Now restart the computer normally.
If you had a bad motherboard, it would not start in safe mode.
One of the items that showed up in the startup tab is causing the problem. You can run msconfig when running normally and enable the things one by one until you find the one causing the problem.
Oh--BTW--after running msconfig, when you start Windows, you will get a message saying the the utility had been run. You have to click the little box at the lower left of the window, or it will throw you right back into the configuration.

Windows won't load


Try booting to "Safe Mode" (tapping the "F8" key on boot), or however you can get to your Desktop, click start, right click "My Computer", select "Properties", then "Advanced" tab, then click the "Settings" button under "Startup and Recovery", then uncheck "Automatically restart" under "System Failure", click "OK" then "OK" again and restart your PC.

That should allow you to run without the instant restarting on BSOD, so you can repair/remove Mcafee.

Hi Chuasooteck,

There are 2 ways by which you stop this from happening
1. Right click on My computer >> Goto Properties >> click Advanced >> Under Performance click on settings >> click the advanced TAB on the top >> Under virtual memory click on Change >> Select " System managed size and then click on Set >> Click OK >> Click apply and OK >> Reboot PC
2. Once PC is rebooted
Goto Ctrl panel >> Open Internet Options >> Click on Advanced TAB on the top >> Under Browsing category Look for " Enable third party browser extensions (Requires Restart)
MAKE SURE that this option should be unchecked ( Not ticked )
Click Apply and OK
Click Close
Close Ctrl Panel
Reboot PC


NOW it should work fine

Thanks and Regards

Original setup was interrupted


press F8 key (just after BIOS screen) at the next cold reboot and you will see a DOS screen with 3 or more options. Read each of them and I think you will see one option is to resume setup. This option places the system at a safe entry point to continue the setup. Another option may read "cancel setup and restore previous system"...this one may be used if you cannot get the "resume setup" option after repeated tries.
