Question about Gateway 310S (2900621) PC Desktop

1 Answer

My computer starts but before booting it shuts down.

What can I do, whenever I turn on my computer it shows an alert message, after that it tells me to press F1, then appears a screen that says into which mode I want to start (Safe Mode, Windows Normally, etc.) whenever I put safe mode or start windows normally the computer shows up the windows XP loading and after that it just shut downs. What can I do?

You may have lost part of your windows program. If you have a system restore disk, you can run a system restore and probably fix your problem.
Some of your windows files have gotten deleted. When windows gets to this point all windows knows to do is restart. A virus can cause this problem.

How to repair start-up on my computer


How long is shortly? If it runs and brings up the Windows Desktop and you are allowed to work for 10 minutes or longer then it shuts down, most likely the laptop is overheating. One way to tell if it is overheating is to immediately try to turn it back on after it shuts off. If it will not boot back up, it's overheating. If you let it sit and cool off for a while, then try to boot it back up and it does it successfully, it's overheating.Causes of Overheating:1) Dust all inside the computer. Fans clogged with dust, dust around the vents.2) Fan not working 3) The Thermal Past around the CPU has dried up or is too thin the keep the unit cool.When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

Hp invent repeating startup error


If it is showing a blue scree of death (BSOD) and shuts downbefore you can read the error message try this:
Turn the computer off, then turn it on and immediately start hitting the F8 keyrepeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Scroll down below Safe Mode and youwill see an option to Disable Automatic Restart. Select it and rebootyour machine. Next time it boots up you will be able to read the errormessage. You'll probably need a system disc or repair disc to fix theblue screen error message.

Whenever I am trying to boot my desktop....it is going to hibernation...I have checked the monitor, which is working good


press F11 on start and see if it wants to boot in safe mode.. ..if you manage to boot it ..it means that it is just a setting from the video card made wrong ..and I suggest to reinstall the video card ..
If it do not boot atall ..and just beeps a sec and shuts down ..open it and see if the CPU cooler is spinning ...and also check the Ram memory ...If you have more than one units for ram ...remove them one by one ..and try to boot the computer with one at he time and see if any of them is damaged..
In case the ram memory is damaged..the computer will actually not boot at all ..and will not show the device check on start ...but just spins the hdd and clicks in a loop ..
If the computer shows the devices..but goes off when windows is trying to start it needs eiter the video driver to be reinstalled to correct any odd settings ..or the operation system is unable to start and this is cause by the hdd not being detected or a malfunction of the operation system ...In this case..check the HDD to work well ..or reinstall the OS..

On shutting down my laptop it gave the message, "installing 1 of 1" do not turn off your computer. It did not turn off all night. I turned it off by using the on/off button then shut it down...


When you start your laptop, press F8. You will get a menu (Normal boot, Reboot...). Choose Last good known configuration (something like that).

My computer went back to older clock date as 1610


try starting your computer in safe mode and see if you can do anything productive there, like scanning for viruses or spyware. also check if you can do the following:
CTRL+ALT+DEL (open task manager)
goto Start>Run>Regedit (open registry editor)
goto Start>Control Panel>Display>Properties (change display settings)
right click on clock at tray and change the current time to correct settings

if you cannot do any of these activities, then your computer may probably been compromised by a virus or malware.
