If you have an AMI bios (you can tell when you boot and the black screen has writing on it at startup - the bios type and version is the first thing at the top of the screen)
1 long and 3 short beeps indicates that the memory is not seated properly. You should check that it is secure on your motherboard. If it is seated securely, your memory is maybe faulty.

First thing we need to know is what beeps are being heard? Each computer sounds 'beeps code' to tell you where the problem is; like 3 short beeps, or 1 long 1 short. The more you run it at present the more harm you can be doing

Gateway wont startup. One beep followed by two short


Not sure where you got your information on the error codes but it is partly correct, it is video related, but it isn't the video card but rather the memory location in the ram that is used by the video card. You could try to remove the ram memory clean and re-seat it on the mother board and see if that fixes it, or if your motherboard has two or more ram memory modules, remove the memory and switch which sockets you replace them in (make sure you keep track of the original position of the modules because on some rare motherboards you have to use the memory in a picky order) after mixing up the memory modules check for a boot again, if this corrects the booting then one of the memory modules is defective and may need replacing. Note when you take your memory into a computer shop be sure to use a static bag and proper static precautions.

I would suspect the power supply or a power connection. The only other issue might be a motherboard, which is a bit more involved. Try another power supply if you have one around.

Nv53 reboot issues


over a year with the same windows installed?, first of all and most cheap solution probably, make a backup of all your info (Pics, videos, docs), be sure of having your laptop drivers and format your laptop hdd, depending on your sistem install window 7 or windows xp (Titan ue, will do it for you), then the drivers, antivirus, malware protection and a firewall, if that doesnt work maybe a loose memory, try to run some memory tests to be sure (You can find some software on the net for this purpose), try to remove the hdd from the laptop and check for virus and malware on other machine with a good and actualized antivirus using a sata/ide/usb cable this are cheap and it shouldnt be hard to find one on some electronics or computer shop... if none of this works you should take it to a tecnician. good luck.

You need to access the BIOS - press F1 or F2 (depending on the version)during the start of the desktop - and in there you must modify the boot order: put the cd first then the had disk second. Save the change, reboot, insert the Vista disk and reboot once more - the disk will be loaded.

Beeping upon startup and nothing else.


You need to check the RAM that is the first causes of beeping your system unit. Try to remove the RAM and clean the dust and re insert it. Try to use the other memory slot. You can try it 3 times. Thank you!

Everything was fine then computer froze so I manually shut it down. Now I hear and see the computer boot-up with the Windows Insignia & Gateway logo and the mouse pointer but then it's black, except...


Restart the computer and press F8 key after you hear a beep or before it gives you the Windows logo on Startup. It will give you then the Advanced Startup Options.

You could try the option 'Last Known Good Configuration'.

You may also try Safe Mode option and do a System Restore. On Safe Mode, System Restore will automatically loads up at startup. You can then choose the date and time where you had it last working before.

If those can't be done, you may want to run scan file checker and fix system errors for you. Do this from Start> All Programs> Accessories> right click on Command Prompt. Then select Run as Administrator.

On the Command Prompt, enter sfc /scannow

That will automatically repair system files. However, it may ask for Windows Setup CD.
