Such problems normally i associate it with ram(memory) and or hard drive. so what i suggest yu do is first lose the area where the ram is, bring it out then put it back in place. then restart yr system n see if it hangs. if u have more than one ram in yr system then try testing then one after the other not just putting the 2 at ones..next try removing the hard drive then power it on n see what happens.next if u can enter into the bios setting good there yu can restore default settings fto manufacturers design.
b4 bringing out any hard ware from yr system try removing batteries first then from power as well.
good luck as u do this
n do come back to tell me the extend yuv gone

Dvd drive not seen in bios


Your computer's BIOS is an critical part of your system when it comes to hardware integration. This especially true when it comes to setting up hard drives and optical DVD drives. You can access your BIOS settings menu during the boot process of your computer. Different computers have different protocols when it comes to accessing the BIOS settings but many can be accessed by pressing "F1" or the "Delete" key before the operating system is loaded up. Consult your computer's documentation or pay close attention to your boot prompts displayed on the screen to enter the BIOS settings menu.

Turn on or restart your computer system. Press the appropriate key during POST in order to load the BIOS settings screen. You will have a short window of opportunity to press the appropriate key before the operating system loads. Search your BIOS menu settings for the appropriate menu concerning your attached hard drives and CD/DVD drives. If you are not sure where to navigate, consult your computer's owner manual. Check the drive menu to see if your DVD drive is listed. Many BIOS manufacturers give the user the option to scan for attached drives if the component does not appear to be listed. If the DVD drive does not appear after the hardware scan, turn off and disconnect your computer, take off the case cover and double check the data and power connections to the drive. Check the jumper settings on the back of the drive if it is of the IDE variety; SATA drives do not have any jumpers to set. There are three jumper settings for IDE based DVD drives: "Master", "Slave", and "Cable Select". Make sure the jumper is set to "Cable Select". Put the computer back together and plug it in. Turn on the computer and re-enter the appropriate BIOS settings menu. If the DVD drive shows up on your drive list, your computer has recognized it properly. Enter the boot settings menu of your BIOS. Change the boot order of your DVD drive to the first position so the computer will read it first during start up. This step is optional; however, you may wish to have this arrangement in case your computer needs to be started from a DVD boot disk later.

I'm sorry but I don't know how to reset your BIOS. But to get around your problem, you should be able to enter the boot menu to boot to the optical drive to install your OS.

In order to access the boot options on this notebook computer, press the F10 key while the Gateway screen is displayed during the startup process. This opens a Boot menu with the option to start the computer to any of the available drives. Use the UP ARROW and DOWN ARROW keys to select a menu option, and then press the ENTER key to start to the selected device.

To "boot" (start) to a CD, DVD, or a floppy disk, the media must be in the drive when starting the computer.

Laptop turns on but only Gateway screen with Boot Menu:<F10> BIOS Settings:<F2> comes up


Your machine isn't able to find the windows software on the hard drive, and most likely you need to get the hard drive checked. If you press F10, does it show you the hard drive?
If so, you probably need to get windows reinstalled. If not, it's likely time to get a new hard drive.
It's an easily accessible part to get to, so the repair shouldn't cost alot, and hard drives retail between $30 and $100 depending on size and speed.
You will need to install windows on it afterwards.

Notebook Gateway 7330GZ won't boot


Hm...That sounds like either the motherboard is dying/dead or a device is (such as the hard drive). I would suggest removing one piece at a time and see if you can get past that screen. The most annoying would be if it is the DVD drive since it's probably the most difficult device to remove from the laptop. (If memory serves it involves removing a certain screw from the bottom and then getting under the keyboard so you can push it out).

Do you have a second stick of RAM installed? Mine died a while ago and caused real heck with my 7330GZ.
