I was installing a program, and the screen went black adn the system shut down.
I was installing a program, WoW, and the screen went black and shut down. it may be a battery thing, because on the front the battery light is flashing orange when i hit the power button. However when i plug the ac adapter into it nothing happens, same orange light problem. i think the ac adapter is working because it has a green light while it is not into the comp but plugged into the wall and when i plug it into the comp it flashes a dim green. any assistance would be great.

If you have the recovery disks attempt to do a repair operation booting off of the recovery disks. If no got you either have to get a set from Gateway or just do a clean install of windows with regular install disk.
take out printheads. unplugg power cable from back press adn hold down 6 and # buttons on pritner at same time while holding them down plugg it back in. then insert printheads one by one. first insert black/yellow shutt the door adn check for message on pritner screen. if it says printhead missing cyan/megenta it means it detected black/yellow printhead. do same with cyan/megenta adn check for message on screen. if you see no error mesage and both printheads were detected fine let the printheads alligned completely. then if u see same issue it is the pritner whgich need to be replaced.
check the program installed in your system.. there are a lot of cause of blue screen.. 1. a lot of virus,2. not properly installed ethier hardware or software. programs.. or setting.. then the system will be shut down automaticaly. or autorestart...
reboot with your xp disc still in the tray, if it didn't corrupt your install, it will just start where it left off with no harm no foul. If you have any question about weather it went in as it should, start the process over again, install a"fresh copy" of xp (hit ESC when it asks) format the hard drive and go again. The black screen with the blinking at the top left is you system is looking for the program to run, I think I would start all over... Good luck, please leave a rating...thank you kindly
From another computer, download Glary Utilities and save the installation on a flash drive. Boot your system into safe mode by pressing F8 before you see the Windows Starting screen (while still seeing black), use arrow keys to choose "Safe Mode". Once it's booted into Safe Mode, install Glary Utilities and do the one button fix. That may solve the problem. I suspect you have a virus. Alternatively, once in Safe Mode, do a system restore (Clicking: Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore), and pick a date to restore to the is before the date the problem appeared. Get a good AV program like AVG (free.grisoft.com)
by shutting the screen you have activated power saving followed by hibernation.when you lift screen and press power a screen appears telling you what programs are currently running and your icon to enter.by removing battery you have (computer term) illegally shut down,possibly with programs running,which incidently is a good way to loose sys32. which would require a repair or install.
Not ur case as of yet.restart ur pc and press f 8 about 4 seconds later .black screen with options appear ,navigate to start windows with last good configuration.windows will restart with last good settings .
if you choose to go asleep whilst a program is running you can configure windows not to go into power save mode or hibernation,turn off hd,turn off pc etc .
if you right click mouse in any space on desktop,select properties,screensaver,power.....you can change settings there to suit.
Start computer in safe mode and do a system restore to any date before the one when you installed the pc game. On Windows xp you find it in 'start menu'- 'accessories' - 'system tools' - 'system restore'
Check video card or video card cable or, your worst scenario would be..............A Virus has shut you down. Especially if you were downloading music without a virus program and anti-hacker protection, you probably just got zapped.
