Question about Gateway 505GR PC Desktop
Hey Kids! I guess I've got 2 problems 1: My system stops booting at the "Gateway" splash screen and the hard drive light stays solid orange. I have to keep shutting it off and back on, then after doing this 4 or 5 times the system makes it past the "Gateway" splash screen and I'm up. Problem #2: Now the green light next to the voltage swith is "flashing" and the power on switch does not respond? Anyone?
For problem #1 there is a MBR (Master Boot Record) problem, meaning that Windows is unable to find Windows. This can either be a software problem or a hard disk failure. If you have your Windows XP disc boot up with it in your cd drive and when it starts press 'R' for repair as this wil repair system files and you will not lose any settings or doc's. When you are running go to your hard disk drive manufacturer and run a diagnosis and repair if neccassary. Problem #2 should sort itself out if left unplugged from the mains supply and the power supply unit for 15 mins or so. If not there is a power supply that needs replacing.
