Freeze on opening screen

I rescently got a computer and it seems that every 2 out of 3 times that I start my computer it freezes on the opening screen that's blue and displays the motherboard's name with an "F? for setup" in the lower right corner of the screen, but sometimes it powers up just fine.... and I know it's not a problem of it just taking a long time to run, I found someone with that problem... I left it on all night last night and when I woke up... still on the blue screen. Any help'd be appreciated :)

The mother board is an 'ASUS P4VP-mx'

    Is is a blue screen with only white tekst?
    If so, there should be a code next to the word STOP on the bottom of the screen. Then a number follows. In order to help you I'll need that number. it's something like 0x000007B or something. Give them all (mostly there are about four).

    This kind of screen indicates hardware or driver failure. With the error code it shows we can start troubleshooting the problem.

Hi, It is possible that the CD ROM Drive is failing when the system hangs at this screen. You could disconnect the drive and see if it powers up all the time without fail. Also check all other IDE cable connections from the motherboard to the hard drive and any other drives as there may be a loose one etc.

Make sure you will not be voiding any warranty you may have with the machine before you do this.

Please ask if you need any help with this, and let me know how you go.

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.

After downloading a few games online, my computer been freezing up on me. It would freeze up 1 or 2 minute after i turn it on. I even tried to do a System Restore, but that would freeze up also. Even if...

Possibly a compatibility problem with software. Check your task manager for for new or unknown processes, and check your startup processes for such issues. Also scan your machine with an anti-virus and malware scanner.

Hope this helps, careful what you download, and always scan before opening.

Gateway laptop 450ROG freezes up after it gets hot & screen frzs

This definitely sounds like a heat problem. The system fan should cool it, but there may be a lot of dirt in the heat sink or along the path that the fan blows air. The first thing I would try is to get a can of canned air and blow it into all the vents under and on the side of the computer. If it is dusty, keep your face away.

You didn't say, but if you let the system cool down for a while (maybe 15 minutes or so) and start it up again and the same thing happens, it['s definitely a heat issue.

Continuous loop and cannot charge battery

Windows service pack 2 is a huge update and takes a long time to complete, I will suggest walking away from your computer and having lunch, go to sleep, watch a movie, etc... while the update finishes. If you have already done this with the same result? I would look for a Windows XP SP2 disk (XP with service pack 2 integrated) and try that. Otherwise Microsoft sent out many disks containing the SP2 update itself on a disk, and you could try the SP2 update from one of those (if you can find one) after your clean install.
Good luck.
