    Thanks I tried putting the CD but nothing happened. Anyway I took it in and the guy put another hardrive and it worked he also attatched my hardrive to another unit where we could open it up and save my data. So we are now going refomatt it on the other unit and put it back. Will keep you posted if it works.

Try to start up with the windows XP CD in the drive, it will give you some options to reinstall or repair XP. If this doesnot work, ensure that your BIOS will startup from CD.

  1. Turn on the computer.
  2. After the Gateway BIOS logo appears, repeatedly press the F8 key. The Advanced Boot Options menu opens. If it doesn't the motherboard is most likely bad).
  3. On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to select Last Known Good Configuration (advanced), and then press the ENTER key.
If that does not work, turn PC off, Do this again, but this time choose 'repair your computer' at the top.
If it still does not work, either your hard drive went bad or Windows is corrupt. Either way Windows must be re-installed.

Start the computer and it shows gateway then window xp loading then the screen is blank


The user settings are corrupted. Try to boot in Safe Mode and in there disable all programs that are loaded at boot.
If you can't boot in Safe Mode then the corruption is too great to fix, you will have to reinstall. If you need to recover/backup your files then , before reinstalling, boot with a Linux Live-CD and copy them.

Starting problem


Immediately after seeing the Dell logo, keep tapping the 'F8' key,
until you see a "menu" (white text over a black background)
giving "startup" options for Windows XP.

Select "Safe Mode" and see if you can start in that mode.
Then, use "System Restore" to go "back" in time, to the most-recent checkpoint (date/time) where your computer _DID_ work.

Restore to that point, and restart.

If display issue: connect an external monitor to see if any change.

Could be spyware - boot in Safe Mode (F8) - download, install and run SpyBot (spybot.com).

Good luck.

My Gateway MX8711 Notebook PC won't boot up. It will come on and show the Gateway logo and then go to start windows normally? but won't boot up. Goes to blank screen and then nothing..........HELP!!!!!!!


I had bought my Gateway laptop with the extended warranty at Circuit City and was worried that the warranty wouldn't be honored due to them filing for bankruptcy but I was pleasantly surprised. I was able to locate the company (Assurant) who is handling their warranties and they helped me over the phone. They had me re-install my operating system. He wasn't sure why it needed to be re-installed and suggested maybe a corrupt file, etc. Anyhow, I ended up losing all of my files but am just glad to have it fixed.

Blank screen after boting up


There should be a display toggle key on your keyboard. This will toggle the display from the external display to the laptop lcd. Try pressing the Fn + F5 key to toggle the display.

HELP! Laptop will not boot up!


Try an XP repair:
Boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your Applications or data; it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
