Question about Gateway MT6821 Notebook

1 Answer

My gateway laptop doesn't boot up correctly. When I turn it on everything seems fine but then it goes to a page that says configuring updates 3 of 3 then restarts and does the same thing over and over. I tried starting it in safe mode and that does the same thing. It doesn,t get far enough in the bootup to do a system restore.

Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

Are you running Windows XP or Vista?

It sounds like the Windows updating has caused a problem in your operating system.

If it is windows Vista, press F4 right when the comuter comes on. Instead of choosing safe mode, choose advanced options. This will give you a screen to do the windows restore.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

    i had a similar issue, i am running Windows Xp and i can not get enough in the bootup to do a system restore. i also do not have any of the discs to reset or restore anything. i know, for instance, if you hold down the '0' button on a toshiba it will automatically give you an option to reset windows. Is the something like this for gateway or what can be done.

My Gateway laptop won't boot up it keeps saying "failure configuring Windows updates reverting changes" Do not turn off your computer


Make sure the Date & Time are set correctly on your machine. That can interfere with Windows Update. If your computer has the wrong date/time, you need a new cmos battery (available anywhere). Then, If you are running Windows 7, try the "Windows Update - Reset" options here... http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/91738-windows-update-reset.html?filter

Got a backup?

If not, download a Linux Live CD. Boot your machine with it, save all your data to an external drive and then do a complete disk format and re-install. That will be quicker in the long run.

Not sure about that PC, but on Dell, for example, you hit CTRL-F10 (I think) at power-on and it gives you the option of reinstalling the OS from the recovery partition (wiping any unbacked-up data in the process).,,Gateway is probably similar.

The Boot/BCD issue means your 'Boot Configuration Data' is hosed.

Turn on and nothing happed just freezs


Turns on boots on acer page to 75% then goes to windows XP then a blue page with some writing that's so fast I cant' read it then back to Acer page again and so the cycle continues. Tried F2 got nowhere, tried F8 last known good configuration and safe mode but neither helped. Safe mode didn't boot. Any suggestions, if I need to update BIOS how do I do that - was suggested on another site.

How do i restore my gateway laptop ML3108B to factory settings


Put your original restoration disc in the computer and boot it, it will probably ask if you wish to completely restore your computer back to the original configuration, click yes and follow the prompts as given to you by the program. There may be several discs and they are probably nukbered. As the program goes through the process it will ask you to remove one disc and insert another until it tells you to remove all media and reboot. When that happens, it will be just like the day it came to you. Beware though that windows at that time will want to update. My advice is to turn the automatic updates off until the computer stabilizes, then run windows update,but choose custom install and look at the updates and run maybe 10 at a time. That way there won't be any hangups or file corruptions. Reboot after each update untill you are done. As far as your drivers for the components installed in the pc, when you are on windows update, choose custom install instead of express, click on optional updates and you will see under hardware all the updates for your systems components. Get everything there and you will be all set. Good luck, ParrotHead PC Repair

Acer5920 stuck in configuring updates.


This is generally caused by bad blocks in the Master Boot Record(Table). The drive itself is probably not salvagable. You'll need a reputable reapir person to slave your drive to another system to get the data off.

Good Luck

Random DNS Error


You may need to manually configure your PS3 connection on the console. Let's see.. I can suggest to first go to your Settings Menu -> Network Settings -> Choose:"Settings and Connection Status List" this will display a pretty detailed information about your connection to your local gateway (router).. Check specifically for Primary and Secondary DNS. In my experience, using the PS3's auto setup for the connection seems to enter the default gateway's ip (labeled "Default Router" on PS3 Status Screen) in place of the real DNS entries..

Question
: Sooo how do you check your primary/secondary DNS for your network? Answer: On your PC, open a web browser and enter your default gateway ip into the browser.. log into your router (assistance can be found in your router manual or by calling your router manufacture). You should see a status page of sorts that displays your ISP's primary/secondary DNS entries.. Simply transfer those two IPs to your PS3 manually to correct the DNS issue.

Hopefully that should resolve your issue!
