I have a gateway gt5622 to will not boot beyond the screen that says starting windows. I have tried updating the bios, changing the power supply, changing the memory, disabling usb in bios, and nothing...


If your system is stuck on the Windows Start Screen Screen you can try to boot using Safe Mode by restarting the computer and tapping F8 while it is booting. When it successfully load the Operating system you can disable some startups on the machine. Click on Start then click on RUN, type MSCONFIG on the dialog box located on the lower left of your screen. Then Click on the SERVICES tab. Put a tick on Hide All Microsoft Services then click on Disable All button. Disabling some startup software may fixed the problem. Restart the computer see if it will works. If not then you need to Reinstall the Operating System to your machine.

Thanks for using Fixya.

My computer is hanging

there are many reasons why computers hang, i will site some
examples and possible solutions:

it hangs probbly because you open a program or application that
is out of the capability of your pc, refer to your computer specification
and compare it to the specification require of the program or application you might want to install or run in your computer.

Another thing, computer might hang because it has full of junk files, something like temporary files saved from internet, there might also some registry values in your pc that is not needed and causes some
error or trouble that leads to hanging. All of this junk files and registry
should be cleaned or deleted. Try to download and install "CCleaner"

Hope all of this will help to everyone...Thanks

System dose not display.

your system might be not running its operating peformance, thus, if you windows has experienced a particular problem before, like crashing, possibly it must be re installed or some values have been changed.

please try to press f8 or delete repeatedly immediately when switching it on. if is stil has nothing to display, then you must try to run windows installation of the current you using or a different one. if still the problem persist, take you computer to a specialist who will check it up and see if the problem lies with the computer itself not the operating system.

thank you

sometime virus infecting your system file until this was corrupted,and slowly shutting down your windows,try to use good anti virus and always update your windows have install to protect against infection.

also maybe you need to upgrade your ram and video card try to add or replace a higher or increase your ram speed and higher
video card capacity,say use a 1gb memory card, and 512 mb of video card.

also, if you want try to restore your windows that are good on previous date that you used that 15 day ago, one week ago you can go there,take note if you do this this will restart your pc and restore your pc in several minutes, be patience then it well tell if restore is finish.but if this does not work go on top procedure.

consider also your sever provider sometime has alow signal
