Question about Gateway MX8711 Notebook

Freezes half way threw system adding devices

My gateway laptop had a registry problem which I tried to correct by following the instructions given to fix the exact problem.After restarting the computer right afterwards the keyboard and mouse stopped functioning. Since I couldn't get my computer to react without the cursor or keyboard I ran the system recovery discs. i did a full wipe after trying to do the partial wipe three times. the full wipe I did twice. For each of the cycles of system recovery the computer would go halfway though the 'recognizing hardware' routine and stop. I let it go once overnight and it was still halfway in the morning. The system recovery program won't finish.

If you made your recovery discs, then call up gateway and tell them you have defective discs, they will send you the factory install discs for free, try them and I bet you will have better results....Restore discs you make yourself are extreemly picky and are easliy ruined if something happens while youo are burning them (someone sends you an IM or email, windows auto updates) with all the hidden processes running in the background any one of them could have caused a glitch while you were making recovery cd's

Computer turns on but will not load windows. Freezes after gateway comes on. Plus cannot start in safemode


Enter the BIOS and ensure that the Hard drive is indeed being seen by the computer.

Open up the chassis side panel and ensure that all conections are making contact.

It keeps freezing and i have reset it several times and it just freezes


Your computer may be freezing because it probably doesn't have enough RAM, since it is a netbook. Try not to open too many programs at once, because that will make a computer with a low amount of RAM freeze. Hope that helps.

Gateway laptop computer freezes during system recovery


Turn the computer off, then start it back up and press the f2 key repeatedly til a blue screen called the BIOS screen comes up, press the right arrow on your keyboard so it goes to the advanced tab. go down to speedstop and disable it, press f10 to save changes and start computer over. Now it will work no freezing :)
