As soon as you start your computer, begin to repeatedly tap the F8 key until the startup menu appears. It may beep at you, ignore that and keep tapping until you have a black screen with several choices.
You have a set amount of time to choose safe mode before the computer automatically does a regular startup.
Tap your up or down arrow and that will stop the countdown. I recommend you Choose boot into safe mode with networking.
You should from there be able to navigate and perhaps figure out why it is failing.
If all else fails, restore the computer to factory settings after backing up anything you might have on it.
Could be it was for sale because it won't function consistently.

Try to reboot your computer choose the option restore to my working state. If this does not work. Open the laptop in safe mode and goto system and see if some device is stopping the system from running properly.

Also try to remove any freshly removed devices or software

Hi,

Taht means not your computer is not booting up to windows, try to boot to safe mode, turn off the computer then turn it back on then keep on tapping F8, then choose safemode.. once youre able to safemode, do system restore going back to the time its properly working... If nothing happens, you will need to reinstall the operating system using the recovery disc that came with the computer.

I have a gateway nv5470u,it picked up virurs and went blank,,it would not come on,then one day i hit the turn on button,it come on a blank screen with a white line uptop to the lleft...


That means that the hard drive is not detected properly on the computer.
Start the computer and keep tapping F2.
You will get a setup utility.
Press F9 and hit ENTER.
Press F10 and hit ENTER.
Now restart the computer.
If u still have the blinking cursor on that black screen, u need to check your hard drive.
If u are gettng some other error in windows or just a black screen, try doing recovery.
Recovery will wipe off all your datas in the computer.
For doing it, keep tapping Alt+F10 as soon as u turn on the computer.
If u are succesful, it will give a message that windows is loading files.
Just follow the prompts.

Keep me posted on the status of the issue.
If that helps, dont forget to rate me.
