You laptop is overheating. Check whether you are hearing the sound of processor fan working and check the bottom of the laptop where processor fan is located getting heated. If yes, you need to take that to a technician

Reformat a gateway nv5207u

You have to format a hard drive with a third party disk unless its a usb data drive
Restart your computer

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS then using the arrow keys navigate to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd press escape then press f10 to save to cmos restart

note this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system

note after you have loaded the operating system you should go back and change the first boot device to failsafe or optimised defaults

after windows has loaded
your computer will automatically restart it might restart 2 times one to finish the installation
the next will be because the operating system is loaded and will boot from your cd

hope this helps

I have a Gateway NV5207u and it will not boot up. It runs Windows 7 and I have been having a lot of problems with it getting internal errors, goes to blue screen with an error listed (hardware problem)...

Before you go that route, have you tried a hard restart? To do so, you need to disconnect the power cable to the unit, then, press and hold the power button for about 30 seconds, then, reconnect the power cord, and see if it will then power up. Good luck, because I know the pain of not having an operational computer.

My NV5207U screen only loads 1/2 way then turns white with line running through. Any idea what the problem may be and how to fix

There are two possible causes of this issue. The first is a problem with your software drivers or graphical settings. Firstly click on Start, then right click "Computer" and left click "Manage". A new window should appear. In the left hand column click on "Device Manager", and if you can see any icons with yellow exclamation marks; that could be your problem, reinstall the drivers. If this isn't the case, it could be a hardware problem, in which case you'd have to either call the manufacturer or your local service technician.

I have a gateway gx7022e windows xp computer. When i try to boot it up the white letters pop up then the screen goes to the gateway screen and freezes. Then my num lock comes on but my keyboard wont work....

At power on / power up, look for the key during the bootup (black screen with white text), that allows you to enter SETUP. If none designated such as F1, F2 F10 etc, then quickly click the delete button a few times and that may get you into setup. You may have to turn off the computer if you miss that window of time if it rfequires pressing the delete button a few times. Keep an eye out for the Enter Setup key though. To turn off the computer press and hold the power button 'till is shuts down and resart the process until you get to the setup screen in bios. In setup bios environment, look for set factory defaults and then save and restart. That may solve the issue of the lockup.

Blue Screen

You could try turning the computer off at the switch when this happens. Sometimes it is a very temporary problem. You would need to wait a few minutes then turn it back on and restart your computer.
