If you have reinstalled your operating system, you will have to install the drivers for your computer.

Your power settings may need to be changed, it appears to be going into sleep mode or power saving mode.

If you are using Vista, Click Start> Control Panel > Power Options > "choose when to turn off display" (in the left hand pane) and check that it says at least 10 minutes. Click apply and then ok.

Alternatively, right click on your desktop, select "personalise" and click on screen saver - then select "change power settings" to bring you to the same thing.

If you have xp, right click on your desktop and select "properties" then "screensaver| > "Power" and change it to turn off the monitor after 10 minutes. Click apply then ok.

If your monitor is going to sleep, either press a key or wiggle the mouse to wake it up.

Try these two things:
1. Go to your BIOS setting by pressing F10 immediately after you switch on your notebook, then select your HDD as your First boot drive and then save changes and exit. If it does not works then follow step 2.
2. Reinstall/freshinstall your Windows OS with a windows OS disc.

Actually this is a hard drive fault most likely, or a faulty had drive. If you don't have a recovery disk you are going to have to start the machine and try to do a recovery to boot repair. You can usually access this with F10 or F12, not really sure on a gateway.

When my Gateway 300S is powering up, it recycles.


If you repeatedly hit F8 key when the computer starts to boot it will open the boot menu screen. There should be an option to "halt computer on all errors". This should bring up the blue screen of death. It should give you something like
STOP: 0X0000007E, the a whole bunch of other numbers. after that it may display a file name. You can search the internet for STOP: 0X0000007E and the file named mentioned. You may be able to find a solution by doing this. It is usually caused by a bad driver or executing a bad command on Windows start up. You can boot the computer in safe mode from the boot menu and maybe repair the problem but it's a tough one to find. I'm trying to repair a similar Gateway computer. It doesn't list a file name and I'm pretty sure that it's a video driver or the onboard video card. The problem is Gateway is no longer in business and it's hard to find updated drivers I"m going to try to backup all the files on the drive and re-install windows and try to repair the drivers with more updated ones. The gateways are hard because they don't have slots in the motherboard to install anything but an old PCI video card. It may be time to think about a new computer soon.

If you get no display at all, it could be failed memory.
Find and open the memory slot, remove and reinstall whatever memory module you find and retry it.
Many systems I've seen will do absolutely nothing if memory is faulty; they do not give any POST beeps, displays or start to read from the hard drive.
The hard drive will spin up when power is applied but will not start their own self-test or look for the boot sector if bad memory is in play.
Good luck-

Gateway laptop screen is black?


This could have several causes, including malware installed on your system, but is frequently the result of some kind of hardware driver conflict. Have you recently installed any new hardware or software to your system? If so, disconnect it and try again.
The black screen is an indication that the windows os is not booting onto the system. If you have the recovery console installed, or have the cds, you can run the recovery console to troubleshoot or repair your installation of windows. This procedure is different for xp or vista, so we need to know what os you're on, as well as any error messages you see when it fails to boot.
To begin with, try tapping F8 as it boots up and see it you can get into the OS options screen, then choose Last Known good configuration to boot windows.
Here's a great article to help you troubleshoot the situation, then let us know how it goes and what comes up..

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
