Question about Gateway 7310S PC Desktop

1 Answer

Wont start windows

I have a Gateway 7310S and it wont boot to windows.
I shut it down the other night and when I went to restart it will boot to the screen that give you the option to boot windows normally or safe mode, etc.
when I select any of these options the thing just reboots and goes back to the same screen. I tried the recovery disc, however, it just wants to remormat and reinstall the OS. I need to back up data on the hard drive before I do that.
Any suggestions. I am running windows XP Home Edition.

Gateway zx6971 no signal


Let's see if anyone else has a suggestion, but it sounds a bit like the DDC info is not being transferred correctly by the monitor OR you have a bad graphics driver. You should try and boot up in Windows Safe-More by pressing f8 before the windows logo shows on the screen during the boot process. if this does not help, I would suspect hardware malfunction, which means you should connect another known working screen to the computer for testing.

When i start my gateway netbook lt20 a black screen pops up asking to start windows normally or 3 other options.. why?does this happen?


Usually because you didn't shut windows down properly before turning your computer off or completely draining your battery. If that is the case then simply select start windows normally and as long as you follow the correct shut down procedure it shouldn't happen again. If it does there may be a problem with your windows instalation.

Gateway 7310s won't boot


Boot from a Linux Live-CD and recover your personal files - copy them to an USB stick. Next boot from the Recovery CD and do a complete reinstall, it's too late to do anything else.

I have Norton 360 V.2. Last night I downloaded


Boot up the PC in safe mode. How? Well when you start the PC press F8 before the windows start loading. A menu will open up. On top or there so you will find safe mode. Select it and boot. On booting in safe mode you will be warned that your PC is running in safe mode. Done? Now start control panel and then Add Remove Programs. Once that window is populated with all the progs that are installed on your PC, select Norton V3 and uninstall it. Uninstall V2 as well. Restart the PC in normal mode. Now install V3 and compute happily.

Try to set your PCI-E card as a first one in BIOS. There also should be an option to turn off onboard video.
