    If you bought your gateway new it should have come with 2 or 3 support disks. One will say operating system, the other 2 should say drivers and applications. Do you happen to have these?

It sounds like your operating system file has been corrupt. You might need to reinstall your operating system. If you have a trust worthy technician that can pull your data off of the hard drive before you reinstall the os system. Hope this helps.

I turn on the laptop and it gets to the login screen. When I login the screen blacks out.

There seems to be an issue with your Operating System. Please try the following :
  1. Boot the computer in Safe mode
  2. Do a system restore
  3. Restart in normal mode
If this does not work you might need to repair your Operating System.

Gateway screen comes up; optical and (new) hard drive spin up, both drive lights light up during this time, fan spins up and air moves out of the side vent continously but still nothing but a blank screen....

If you have an operating system disc that came with your computer try putting it is and see if you can load the disc. If you can go to the repair screen after it loads all files. When you are at command prompt type: chkdsk /r

It will try to repair operating system. When done type "Exit" and restart. If you can't load the operating system disc you might be having a graphics card problem. Go to the manufacturer's website and check on their forums for your problem. Hope this helps

I Have a Blank screen and can't get rid of it. What do I do to fix the problem?

Run a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. If the repair doesn't take, then the hard drive may have failed. Then reformat the drive (NTFS) and install a fresh operating system. If you have any problems during or after the format and install, then the hard drive has failed and will need replaced.

i think your system has crashed so you need to do recovery or do a fresh installation of your operating system. Your system is unable to boot due to corruption in system files.
