Lets start by resetting the power state on the computer.

First you will need to unplug the AC Power Cable.

Next unplug all connections from the computer that are connected to a power source.

Now hold down the power button for 30 to 45 seconds. Will power disconnected from the computer this will drain the capsitors of any remaining power.

Next with your computer the only thing you need to plug in at this point is the AC Power Cable.

Now try to turn on the computer.

If you still have trouble then you have some hardware problem with the system.

Let me know how things go

Cannot enter bios in the standard way with F2. I believe IDE controller is set to disable


Turn on your computer. If your computer is already on, then reboot it.

You need to see the initial display screen to get into the BIOS.


Press the F1 key immediately in one second intervals when you see the initial screen displaying the BIOS provider information.

The majority of Gateway computers use the F1 key.

If, for some reason this does not work, then use the F2.

All of Gateway's desktops use the F1 or F2 keys.


hope this helps

My gateway wont go past da gateway logo


@djsheedo19

If you're computer freezes up on the Gateway POST (Power ON Self Test) screen, try the following:

1. Disconnect any external devices on the computer (i.e. USB flashdrives, mouse, external HDD, etc) and reboot.
2. If same issue, try to take out the battery and turn the computer ON with the AC adapter plugged-in.
3. If same issue, try to press F2 or F1 and check if it goes to the BIOS screen. If it does, try to check if the HDD is getting detected and set the default settings by pressing F9 and F10 to save and exit (your BIOS might look different from screenshot below)

If the above methods gives you the same issue, you're HDD or motherboard might be failing and you need to call Gateway at 1-800-846-2000 to have the unit serviced.

The Gateway GT5404 can't detect the keyboard and mouse, i try to get in the bios but the option can't appear


Try using a PS/2 keyboard and mouse, not a USB. That usually does the trick, so you can get into the BIOS and change the settings to accept USB keyboards and mice.
Good luck!

Help i have a dell inspiron 530s and all of a sudden my keyboard and mouse do not work on when the logo of windows comes on in start up nor the mouse or keyboard work but my keyboard works on f2 and f8...


Try restoring your system bios to factory default and this may fix your problem. If not- post again with results and we'll go from there.

Entering System Setup

Turn on your computer.

When the blue DELL logo is displayed watch for the F2 prompt to appear (black screen / white text).

Once this F2 prompt appears, immdiately press F2 .

The F2 prompt indicates that the keyboard has initialized and is detected. This prompt can appear very quickly. Watch for it to display as the screen powers up, and then press F2. If you press F2 before you are prompted, this keystroke will be lost. There is a small window of time to do this before Windows starts.
If you wait too long and the operating system logo appears, continue to wait until you see the Microsoft Windows desktop. Then, shut down your computer and try again to enter setup. At setup check your bios version. It may need to be flashed (upgraded). Select load factory defaults to see if that will resolve your PCI issues.

Selecting booting device


Normally with the new laptops you have to press F2 to access your bios settings, you will definitely be able to select the boot device from there.

If F2 does not work startup your laptop and watch the screen, there must be an option that will tell you which key to press to enter bios.

If the screen comes and goes to fast for you, press the pause button on your keyboard so you can read it at your own time and do your actual selection.

Hope it helps.

Gateway boot problem


If it is not seeing the keyboard, you need to get a ps2 keyboard, go into the bios settings, and make sure usb keyboard support is turned on. Alot of times the default is disabled.

If the harddrive has a virus, make sure you reimage it or format it completely before using the unit.

Keyboard & mouse are dead


I just fixed this problem by doing the following:

Hard power-off (hold the power button until the laptop turns off)
Unplug the AC adaptor
Remove the battery
Plug in the AC adaptor
Hold ctrl and turn the power on. You should arrive at a black screen.
Hard power-off again, then turn the power on.

Mouse


if i were you, i would go into the bios when the machine is booting up, by pressing usually f2 or delete on the first black screen and setting all defaults in the bios, save it, then see if your mouse works.It may be that the bios is corrupt or misconfigured and that is why the integral mouse does not work.
