How to solve this problem?


Does it get to the Operating System screen? ie, anything that indicates a Windows system or similar OS? If it doesn't make it to the OS screen I would say that there may be a problem with the hard drive, in which case you can try re-installing a clean version of your operating system, which would require you to lose your data. If your adequate with computers I would say take the hard drive out and retrieve any data you want to keep by using it as a slave drive on another computer. Otherwise you may want to take it to a computer expert to get the data retrieved for you. If you can live without it than get an operating system disc and do a clean install of the operating system, which should fix your problem.

I own a Gateway nv7802u laptop computer that has recently crashed. When I turn the computer on, I get the normal Gateway startup followed by a black screen that says: PXE-E61: Media test failure, check...


Check and see if the hard drive came loose check the bios to see if it is recognized..It is saying there is nothing with an O/S on it and when you put the disk in it does not register a hard drive to restore..Check the hard drive and start the computer up and see if you can cancel the restore and start the laptop up regular..

I turn on the Gateway and the words Gateway come on screen, then it goes black. The keyboard is on then off then comes on again, Screen remains black.


You have a problem with the operating system. It has crashed. You will need to reinstall the operating system in your computer. Before you do that you need to back up your file in your hard drive.To do that you need a 2nd computer get a hard-drive closure external take out the hard drive of your gateway. and plug it in to the external closure and plug it in the computer and explorer and move the files you need to the other computer. After that put the hard drive back into the gate

Your computer came with a recovery disc. Use that to reinstall your computer and software. That will help your problem. Update your computer to make sure it doesn't fail again.

On my gateway laptop, I have an all black screen with a blue 4 inch box that prompts me for my HDD password. I don't have that password at all.


Hard drive passwords cannot be broken or gotten past. There are no special tricks unfortunately....most people that have an unknown hard drive password are forced to get a new drive and start over. If you know what the old BIOS password was, sometimes when people make a bios password they make the hard drive password the same. BIOS passwords and user account passwords can be reset......hard drives cannot. If you need the files from the hard drive....you might be able to access the files by removing the drive and using an IDE / SATA to USB adapter and connecting to a different computer.

Likely the hard drive is bad. I would suggest testing the hard drive or having a technician test the hard drive, replace it if it is bad and restore your operating system

I compressed my hard drive and get a black screen with the sentence,"NTLDR is compressed." I don't have recovery disks, but have a start-up disk that came with the computer. How do I...


hey you need to boot from a windows disk and select repair this will solve your problem. I'm assuming the start up disk is a OEM of windows if not borrow one from a friend .. follow the steps HERE
Its for windows xp but its the same process for vista and other versions of windows as well!!!

That will solve your problem and next time Dont Compress the WINDOWS folder located on your harddrive ok :)

This is either an operating system failure or hard drive failure. Start by reloading a fresh operating system (Vista) with your recovery or operating system disc. If you have any problems during or after the install, then it's the hard drive and will need to be replaced.
