Gateway laptop stuck at XP title screen

Q: Gateway laptop stuck at XP title screen

I am trying to fix a gateway laptop that keeps getting stuck at the xp title screen. I did a restore that saves the data files and it went through the entire process only to be stuck at the xp title screen again. Was hoping to be able to save some of the old data files but thats not looking too likely. This is a last ditch effort before I have to do a reformat of the drive and load it all up again. Hoping for any suggestions that could be a work around.

Thanks in advance

Preferred Solution: Gateway laptop stuck at XP title screen

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Without more information we are kind of shooting in the dark.

And I may not be the one to carry you through to solution...
(I only have limited exposure to Win7 so far.)

Based on experience with other OS...
Could be Hardware (HD most likely, though Ram is not impossible)
Have you tried HD diagnostics? WD offers a diagnostic program for their drives.
We regularly have referred people to Memtest for Ram testing... not sure of use with Win7.
There may be other utils if Memtest is not compatible.

Both Memtest and WD's drive util run outside of Windows, so boot failure is not a problem.

Another way this kind of problem can result (with XP for example) is with driver conflicts, or with application conflicts, including security software. (For example, a firewall might cause a hang at boot, but the next reboot, no problem... your problem sounds different; but without more information it is hard to tell.)

Again... I am not familiar enough with Win7... someone with Win7 experience will need to weigh in.

A Product like Apricorn will help you rescue your data, so that if you need to to a system restore, you will not have lost your data.

Another possible option is to boot to "Safe Mode"; if you can, then this will help resolve the driver or application conflict causing the problem.

See here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Start-your-computer-in-safe-mode

I hope this gives you a start.

   I have a Gateway m6750. When the problem first started it would repeat 8"s in any writable space you put the cursor on. Later it started beeping repeatedly for a minute or more when you started the computer up. It wasn't beeping a code. I changed the memory removed the hard drive and keyboard with no change. It will even write 8's in the time and date space in the bios when you can get to it. I was wondering if this might be a short in the MB ? Or does anyone have another idea?

A:Gateway laptop stuck in boot loop following update

I would suggest contacting Gateway, requesting Recovery Media CD from them - might cost a few $, but you'd be able to repair the laptop to factory specs.
While waiting for the CD from Gateway, you might be able to recover any data from the disc by connecting it to a HDD dock, and copying files onto another computer.

Hi-
I have a Gateway laptop running Win8. Just yesterday upon booting up, received a message below Gateway logo that it is Preparing Automatic Recovery. After this a dark blue screen and it seems to reboot and repeat.

From reading other users' dealings with this issue, I've read that the HDD might be going bad or already bad.

I've been able to click F2 repeatedly to get to the InsydeH20 Setup Utility screen, but am not sure what (if anything) should be done from here.

Also, if my HDD is bad, is it possible to recover any information off of it? I have a ton of pictures on it that will devastate my wife if they are gone forever

Any help offered is such appreciated. I am hoping someone knows what I can do from the Setup Utility screen

I have a 2 year old Gateway laptop which, I understand, was actually made by Acer under license.

All of a sudden a vertical line appears midway in the screen display. Sometimes it is a red line, sometimes a white line.

Does anyone have any idea why this occurs? Is this a sign of the "kiss of death" for my laptop display, to follow? Does this mean the "end is near" for the screen?

A:Gateway Laptop screen going bad?

Anything's possible with a Gateway

Sorry couldn't pass up that opportunity.

That would be an unusual hardware failure for an LCD screen. Generally the problem is backlight failure, causing a BLACK screen.

Does your Monitor and Video Card show up properly in Device Mgr?

The fact that you get a display on an externally connected monitor means the card is working.

Is that monitor a CRT or LCD?

Have you screwed around with the Monitor Settings, eg, resolution, refresh, etc?

My screen is almost to dark to read when I plug it in. When it is on battery the screen is almost OK. In the past when it was on battery the screen was dimmer that in regular power.

i have a screen from a gateway solo laptop i would like to adapt it so i could plug the screen in to the monitor socket of any computer and it would work.
The plan is for it to built into the lid of a tour case as having a small light portable screen would be very usefull for my job .

I bought this laptop 8/07. It's been back to Gateway and the Geek Squad 3
times and I've reinstalled the operating system myself once. The problem goes away and stays away for a month, maybe 2 if I'm lucky... only to return. The blue screen of death! Apparently there is something with Gateway that isn't compatable with Vista... surprise surprise! My warranty will expire soon and I'll be stuck with a $1200 piece of you know what... does anyone know anything about a problem with Gateways and Vista and how to remedy it? The problem will start by not shutting down all the way. Then it will turn itself on and off all night... sounds a bit spooky, I know. Any help is greatly appreciated.

A:Blue Screen on Gateway Laptop

Hi jekano. . .

Welcome to the Tech Support Forum - Vista Support!

Let's see if some answers can be provided for you prior to that warranty running out. The infamous Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) usually leaves memory dump files behind. Please get them and send them to me and I will take a look at them to see if a probable cause can be determined.

The memory dump files should be located in c:\windows\minidump\ - the dump files will be named similar to "Mini041008-01.dmp". Get them all - regardless of the number.

Two other items that I would like are: (1) A Belarc Advisor report saved in "mht" format (Top right of Internet Explorer screen; Page; Saved as; save as mht), as a web page (html) or as a Word document. You can download Belarc HERE; (2) A DXDiag report - START | type dxdiag into the Start Search box | right-click on dxdiag.exe | select Run as Administrator | respond to User Access Control prompt. Then save this report as a text file. My results will then be posted here in this thread.

Please refer to my PM as to the location to send these files to.

Please be patient as I have other memory dumps to process. Should you have any questions regarding the aforementioned, please POST again or send me a PM.

Regards. . .

I have a Gateway laptop model number 400VTX. Goodness, I must have gotten it early 2000's some time while I was in college. It worked fine up until last year. I was watching a movie on it that I was streaming from the internet. In the middle of the movie the screen went black. I have tried restarting it. When it starts it sounds like it is searching the cd drive for a disk. The lights on the bottom half/keyboard come on. The screen stays black. I am not sure if I need to take it in or if I can fix it myself. Any help you can offer?

Thanks.

Can you try connecting an external monitor and see if you get video? If you do, the LCD display is the problem (inverter, backlight, LCD panel or cables). If you still get no video, the motherboard may be the cause

This seems to be a very unique problem that i can't quite get to the bottom of. There are times where the computer starts, but the screen remains off. Yet, there are other times where the computer starts, the screen starts, well lit, but it stays at a black screen. like a Lit black, not an "Computer is off" black. yeah this is probably really confusing the way its worded but i really cant think of any other way to put it. Anyone got some ideas? I'm quite skilled with computers but have only opened a laptop once, though i am willing to do it.

The screen on my four year old Gateway laptop suddenly goes dark and/or very faint. Sometimes after just a few minutes, sometimes after several days (of non-continuous use, powered off each evening). The screen comes back to normal brighness after I close and re-open the cover. Any idea what might be causing this? (And is it something I can fix myself?)

FYI -- I have not changed any of the power settings, so it's not that.

I would blame it on a loose cable however i'm sure there was one series of the Gateway notebooks that had a manufacturing problem with recall? don't quote me on that though.

Without a number of the laptop ie Dell Inspiron 1501 i can give you specific instructions but see if your is in this list here and have a look at the instructions. Some may be similar. If not post back with the model number and we can help you more

Hi, I have a gateway solo 2500 laptop (12.1'' tft screen)

The thing stopped working 3 yrs ago. Power on, cd spins, hd spins, fan spins.. nothing after that. Wasn't about to pay gateway $400 to fix it. Recently figured it out.. I just needed to reseat the processor. Problem is that in the last 3 years somewhere the screen got cracked so bad that I can only see a small fraction of it, though external monitor is fine.

So I purchased another Gateway Solo 2500 with a 12.1'' tft screen and I want to swap the screens (the other one I bought is a 266mhz MMX processor whereas mine is a celeron 400) so how do I do that.

Has anyone done this? Are there any things I should watch out for, is it super simple or is this something to leave to the pros?

I'm great with desktops, not so experienced with laptops.

thanks... closetgeekla
 

A:How to replace laptop screen (Gateway 2500)

Are the cases identical ? If they are, then you need to start taking the unit apart until you get down to removing the Lid's hinges. There should be a cable that goes from the MOBO to the display. Unplug it and swap lids.

This is based on my experience disassembling my HP laptop to fix the connection cable, which was being pinched by the hinge.

Of course the other possibility is to swap the newer MOBO and drives into the other case's base unit.

I have a Gateway MX8738 laptop and I recently installed Windows 7 as an upgrade from Vista. After the install everything was fine for a day until I noticed that ALL PROGRAMS on the Start Menu was empty so I attempted to reboot to see if it would resolve the issue. It then went into a scan/repair mode and attempted to reboot after scanning and now it's stuck in the Black Screen. It never gets to a Windows logo or the login screen, it just freezes. It will boot up to the Windows 7 CD and to the System Recovery Options but none of these options are working. I even attempted to reinstall the 'upgrade' but it won't let me unless I'm in Windows. I DO NOT WANT TO DO A CLEAN INSTALL BECAUSE I HAVE TOO MUCH INFO TO LOSE.

HELP!!!!!

A:Black Screen w/mouse pointer - Gateway Laptop

Use an Ubuntu Live CD to move your important stuff to another location, and then perform a clean install. Your data that was carried over from Vista is in C:\windows.old.

Have you tried accessing the command prompt from your CD? If you can, use the fixboot command. You should always perform a clean install because stability is more important than convienience. Most people will tell you that.

The other day, my laptop decided not to boot. I turned it on in the morning as usual, and the screen turned black, after the Gateway logo appeared. The screen is still on, can tell by the back light. It just wont go past that to the windows password screen.

After 10 minutes or so, the windows checking for errors screen appears. It checks etc.. so I let it go, 14 hours later its still checking for system errors..

Whats your suggestions??

Laptop is Model NV53 running windows 7.

A:Screen turns black after Gateway logo on my laptop

If Check Disk is still running 14 hours later, then your HDD has too many bad sectors for it to fix. Let it finish, if it says there was an error, or it never finishes, then you will need to get a new HDD. You can test this theory by downloading the ISO image for Drive Fitness in my signature, burn the image to CD using IMGBurn also in my signature and boot the troubled computer with the newly created CD and run the Short and Extended tests. If either fails, you need a new HDD.

While using my Gateway laptop it will frequently fade white and freeze. This problem is sporadic at times and constant other times. I cannot figure out a pattern to the problem. I am unclear whether this is a software or harware problem. All I really know is that it is really annoying. I am wondering if anyone out there could help me diagnose this problem. Sometimes, faded white lines appear on the screen and become more intense, depending on the amount of time it is frozen. The problem can last anywhere from a second to almost a minute. When it fades you can still see the the monitor picture kind of, but like I said it is blurred. Someone please help!

I have a Gateway Laptop MT6728 running Windows XP. I got the blue screen one day and then after that attempted to reboot. What happens is after I get the Gateway Bios/Boot Menu Splash screen the screen goes black. I can't boot from the drive it just spins and then shuts down. I can press F2 and get into the Setup Utility and I have changed the boot settings to CD but still disk just spins in drive for a few seconds then stops.

I have reseated Ram, Taken out one stick of Ram and attemped to boot with only 1 stick.
I have reseated the CMOS.
I have reseated the Hard Drive.
In the Startup it states: No TPM or TPM has problem. ( Don't know if that is an issue.)
I have Bios Version 93.09

I have read other posts of users with the same problem, but have not found a fix, if there is one. Thanks.

got my brand new gateway fx 7807u. been toying around with it since yesterday. only got around to installing a few necessities; aim,firefox,itunes...
today about 5 minutes after i reebooted i bluescreened, and after another reboot bluescreened yet again. More prepaired this time I ran a pandasecurity scan (Panda Global Protection 09) revealing I had already been infected with 10 "generic trojan"s (path: C:\ACER\Preload\Autorun\APP\PowerDVD\data1.cab[...]).After reading PowerDVD might b behind it I rushed to remove the alleged offending program. PowerDVD's uninstallation seemed to have helped because i haven't bluescreened :D.

i think i accidentally allowed an unrecognized program to run

I have followed the "first-steps". the first scan wont work on vista and the second turned no results. Seeing as its a brandnew computer, i would greatly appriciate it being virus free for at-least a full 24 hours :PP

A:how to fix black screen gateway laptop model w350a t-series

If you never ever see anything whatsoever on the screen it is a hardware fault.Assuming the above and if the computer sounds as if it is booting up normally then it could be:The connectors at either end of the cable between the mother board and the screen, the cable, or even the screen itself.With the computer booted up try moving the lid back and forth slowly. If you suddenly get a glimpse of a picture then it is most likely cable failure at the hinge, or maybe connectors loose.If you see anything but black on the screen during bootup then this could be a different matter.EDIT: Tidied up wording.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanksmessage edited by Derek

Yes, get your laptop back and don't give them a single penny for any work they really haven't done. Send it to Gateway who should have given you at least a 1 year warranty on it. Extend the warranty if you have to.

Manually shut down (hold the power button) the computer (you might have been pushing the Sleep button. If you can't figure it out, just unplug it and let the battery run down.)

Or go to safe mode and do a system restore to before the problem started.

It may be caused by bad RAM. Download the ISO image for Memtest in my signature and burn it to CD using IMGBurn also in my signature, or burn to USB flash drive with Rufus, in my signature or use their burning tool on their web site. Remove all but one stick of RAM. Boot off of the newly created media and do the tests on each stick of RAM separately for at least 7 passes. If you get any errors, red in the bottom half of the window, that stick is bad and needs to be replaced.
You can also remove the HDD and attach it internally to a desktop computer, or via a USB Adapter or put it into a USB dock or enclosure to backup the files and run Diagnostic tests on the HDD.

Hi ,,       Can you get into safe mode of any description ? On start up keep tapping f8 till the Advanced boot options page opens  . Next using arrow keys move down to safe mode with command prompt and hit enter . When command prompt opens type   rstrui.exe  and hit enter . This will take you to System Restore choose the restore point that was created BEFORE you did the updates and let it load . This should take you back to a usable state , When you are prompted to do the updates again try installing them individualy rather than all at the same time . This way you can pinpoint the offending update that is causing the issue . Let me know how you get on    Checkurtech

but then, I realized I had the wrong disk in, so I took it out.

Now, I'm stuck at "bad command or file name" and I need to know how to get the heck out of this and start over. Rebooting my machine takes me right back to this place.

Welcome aboard, Gene
First, boot into Advanced Boot Options , and try "Last Known Good Configuration (Advanced)" let us know it it worked.

Do you have a Repair disk, or installer disk ? How have you run the startup repair ? Automatic startup repair cannot recover it sometimes .

If not, download repair disk for your appropriate bits (32 bit or 64 bit)from the link specified in the first post of the thread Win7 Repair Disk Download , Burn the downloaded .iso file to a blank CD, boot from the CD, and run Startup Repair , at least three times, with restarts after each single run. ( Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times).

Let us know it it is not booting still now.

Not sure if this comes under Operating System.

When uninstalling a program I was prompted to restart my laptop. I did so, but when I turned on my computer was left on a black screen with a White "_" cursor in the top left corner. My laptop boots the toshiba screen as normal but then stays on this black screen (until I manually turn the laptop off)

I've tried taking the power cord and battery out trick where you then press the power on button but this did not do anything. I can enter the BIOS settings (F2) and it shows my hard drive is connected. (MK1652GSX [S1])
When I try and enter F8 menu it goes back to the black screen.

Really need help (reformatting is not an option). My laptop is Toshiba L300, OS windows vista 32 bit

I turn my laptop on and I get the normal screen with the HP logo and the loading circle, but it doesn't continue on from there. It just seems like it is endlessly trying to boot the system. I have the laptop set to go to sleep after 20 minutes of inactivity, which it did before I started having this problem. I wasn't around when the laptop went to sleep to notice if anything strange happened. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Model number is 1y1y0y, in case that helps.

Greetings It's a long story of a format gone very wrong so I'll try to keep it short I hope you guys can help me nbsp years ago I bought a HP nbsp pavilion nbsp dv - e Win vista -bit everything was ok later I upgraded to Win -bit and everything was ok as well later I decided to format the laptop to clean things up and make it faster again I did this with the Win DvD I formatted the C drive but kept the Recovery drive for obvious reasons At first things appeared ok until I noticed that the FN f f button to adjust brightness wasn't working then I noticed that my laptop was telling me that my Graphics card only had MB of Ram so I came to the conclusion that the drivers were gone and I need Laptop boot!!(stuck HP won't on screen) to reinstall them nbsp Now I would have downloaded the drivers from HP's site Laptop won't boot!!(stuck on HP screen) but the thing is that my internet is very slow and very limited so I thought what If I use the recovery drive and format back to Vista then upgrade to again that should work and get the drivers back at first I tried to press F upon startup but Laptop won't boot!!(stuck on HP screen) it did nothing that is until I found out I had to set the recovery drive to active via the Manage button I did that and when I pressed F it worked now here is where the troubles begin nbsp I followed the system restore nbsp instructions nbsp and did it but after system restore was done after restart upon Vista installation startup I got an error message saying The system registry contains invalid file paths Installation cannot proceed This system image was applied without nbsp guaranteeing nbsp that drive-letter assignments would match across computers I pressed OK and it restarted the laptop back to the vista installation and I got an error message something like there was an unexpected restart windows will restart again So I thought that maybe if I did the system restore again it would work so upon bootup I pressed F and did the system restore again worked but after when it restarted the HP screen comes and then nothing happens it just stays on the HP Invent logo screen and on the bottom left corner it said nbsp Press the ESC key for startup menu even when I press it nothing happens the laptop makes a beep sound for any key you touch nbsp so that's the story Is there anyway that this can be fixed nbsp Any assistance shall be greatly appreciated

A:Laptop stuck at startup screen?

I would suggest you start by testing the hard drive, as follows:

As your PC is not operating you will have to use another PC to make the CD.

Open Internet Explorer and click on this: Seatools

Save the download to your desktop.

In Windows 7 right click the ISO file, select Open With, then select Windows Disc Image Burning Tool then follow the prompts.
For all other versions of windows (if you do not have an ISO burner) download this free software. ImgBurn Install the program and start the application. Select the top left hand option to Write image file to disc and then on the next window click on the small yellow folder icon and browse to the ISO file on your desktop. Then click on the two grey discs with the arrow in between (bottom left) and leave it to complete the operation.

You will need a blank recordable CD or a re-recordable CD. You cannot use this software on a USB flash drive.

When the CD has been burned boot the PC into the Bios setup and set the CD/DVD drive to 1st in the boot sequence. Insert the disk in the drive then reboot and the disc will load into DOS. Click on Basic Tests and select the Long Test.

A full set of instructions can be found here: Seatools instructions

When the test completes it will show a Pass or Fail.

I am running Windows 8. Please help me!!!

Do you have a Restore Point from before the problem? If so I'd try that. Also I would turn off all AV shields. They tend to interfere with the operation of the machine.

On the Notebook make sure you have a good connection with the HD Drive.

For installing Win XP, you need to install on the Notebook & not on a Desktop.

Hello.

Two days ago, it has started that everytime I turn on my laptop, the stand-by screen comes up (blue screen with my username and the square box that i can normally click on, which in turn directs me to my desktop).

Every time I click on the box, my desktop appears for about half of a second then I am taken right back to the stand-by screen. Essentially, I can't get to my desktop as I am constantly sent back to the stand-by screen.

My computer when turns on seems to go normally, but after the desktop appears (WITHOUT ANY ICONS), I am almost immediately taken into the stand-by screen, in which I am unable to effectively get out of.

This all sounds like a virus. Is there anything I can do to ameliorate this particular problem?

Thank you for your time.
 

A:Laptop Stuck On Stand-by Screen

1) Does the issue occurs in safe mode ?
2) What happen if you log on the system with a different user account part of the adm group?
3) You can boot to safe mode with Networking and do a virus scan online

How do i remove it?

Hi! So i recent got my laptop, about 2+ weeks ago, and it was working well until now. The Google Chrome browser was unresponsive (i assume because i opened it while an update was trying to be installed) so i decided to restart the computer (after the update had failed of course, not during) It asked if i wanted to cancel the restart or force it; i chose to force the restart. Now i have been sittung here for an hour and a half waiting for it! Ive even tried to force a manual shutdown by holding the power button, but even that wont do anything! (i held it for 20sec)I dont know what to do because it is still on the blue restarting screen. Please help.

A:HP Stream laptop stuck on restart screen

Hey guys!So i assume you all have the stream laptop specifically.What happened was the processor is just 100% frozen and sadly you can't fix it yourself unless you have the equipment and know computers really well.So, the only solution is to take your laptop to a shop probably the one you bought the laptop from as they should have a tech help station; I took mine back to the store I got it from (aka micro center) and an IT guy fixed it for me.So the prob isnt major and your files should be safe. Mine were fine and nothing was lost.Hope that helped and sorry it happened to you all too. It totally sucks but at least its fixable

The problem is that I start it up and when I get to the screen that ask how many users, I enter 1. my name 2. friend and it gets stuck there. It will go back to previous page but won't go to next. Both & Next are lit up in green. (tech asked if Next was grayed out).

Called tech support but no help; suggestion was to return it to store and have salesperson look at it.

A:Laptop stuck on Toshiba splash screen

I finally got the desktop up. After restarting it 3 more times and trying to get safe mode up, but it didn't go to safe mode screen, it automatically went to the desktop. I'm running a defrag on it. It was really fragmented. But so far so good, I haven't tried to run any other applications on it yet. Wish me luck.

Any ideas why it wouldn't go to the safe mode screen and automatically went to desktop?

If anyone can help me it would be heaven sent. I have a Compaq Presario V6171CL laptop. it was running really slow when I got home yesterday so I restarted it. Now if I try to boot in normal mode it goes to the windows logo screen with the blue bar running over and over. If I try to boot in safe mode it goes to the drivers\mup.sys adn stays there. trying to boot from the cd it says setup is starting windows and stays. I ran a harddrive test and it came back as passed. Any suggestions?

Let me first start off by saying I have limited knowledge on PCs.

I was browsing the internet when out of nowhere it started acting up. McAfee popped up in the bottom of the screen and my laptop began lagging pretty bad. Well it got stuck at that point with absolutely no response to any commands so I powered it off. When attempting to power back on, it loaded about 2/3 of the way on the welcome screen, and then froze at that point. It repeatedly does this. Upon hitting ESC, it says that my system BIOS are shadowed and my video BIOS are shadowed. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.

Can you get into the Windows Safe Mode, by pressing F8 repeatedly when the computer is starting up?

Whenever I close my laptop then reopen it later it gets stuck at the hibernating screen (instead of standby). The only way to restart is by removing the battery and starting the computer up again. What is causing this problem? If it makes a difference it's only really been happening since around the time I got infected with spyware last week.

A:When I close my laptop it gets stuck in "Hibernating" screen?

Go to the Control Panel and look in Power Options to see if your setting have been changed.

Hi,

I have a Dell laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium which is stuck on the shutting down screen after I pressed install and shut down computer.

I have left it plugged in so it doesn't run out of battery and shut down.

How do I fix this?

A:My laptop is stuck on shut down screen after installing updates!

Ah, I have exactly the same problem! My Windows 7 Home Premium is an Acer though. You can view my thread for the details of my progress with this problem.

Laptop has been shutting down for 7 hours after update, please help!

Anyway, mine has been stuck for 10 hours total, so I decided to hold down the power button until it's dead. Not a very good idea, but I can't think of any other way. After that, I turned the pc back on. The pc seems to run normally. But then when I shut the pc down again, it decided to install more updates. This is when things get ugly on my part. Sometime during this second shutdown update process, I got a blue screen of death. So yeah, best not follow what I did. But should you decide to hold that power button and then turn the pc back on, I recommend that you set the windows updates settings to "never check for updates" so that when you do a shutdown again, the updates won't install, thus saving your pc from a potential blue screen of death.

Oh yeah, have you ever got a "Failure configuring windows updates. Reverting changes."? I got that at least 2 times already.

Hello, I am trying to fix my mother's laptop and unfortunately am not very computer savy. She has an Acer computer running with Windows 7 Premium. When I turn it on it asks if I want to boot normally or launch startup repair. Starting normally brings me to the Windows startup screen, where it gets stuck. Launching startup repair says it's loading files, then goes to a black screen and stays there. I went to another thread with a similar problem, but I had trouble understanding. I will try to provide any information about the laptop per request.

Thank you for reading this message and helping, I apologize for not being informative.

A:ASUS laptop stuck at splash screen - won't boot from HD or DVD

Google is my friend. Took a lot of poking, but Stuck on asus logo on startup?? - FixYa suggests the following:





Quote:
Same problem here with my wife's Asus laptop. Called Asus and they said to unplug charger, remove the battery in the back, hold down the power button for 10 seconds. Then, replace battery, then charger, then press the power button and wait for startup. First time it got stuck at the windows loading bar screen for like 5 min. which is abnormal. Did a hard power down (press and hold power button til it shuts off) then restarted again. That time it worked and all is well so far. Could have been due to a static charge as she was on our couch with our dog backing up movies so charge might have entered through the CD/DVD drive opening. (?) Not sure, but if you are sitting on a static-prone couch with your laptop its probably best to sit on top of a bounce sheet.


I did that and it worked.

I'll mark the thread as solved a few days down the road if no further incidents.

Meanwhile - any comments on what might have led to this situation?

After booting up again it is now stuck on windows 7 logo screen on startup. I tried booting up on safe mode and last known good config. but it didn't work. Also tried to use windows installation disk but it doesn't work either it just keep loading on "setup is starting" also tried "repair my computer" option but it just show me just a plain black screen

A:laptop stuck on windows logo screen in startup

Your System spec says your machine is x86 - your post says x64.
Please clarify that.
When you attempted to use an installation disk - what type of disk did you use? the manufacturer's Recovery disk, or something else?

Hi,

I have been given a laptop to fix by a friend, she said that she opened an email with a virus and now the laptop won't boot. After the post screen it just sits on a black screen with a blinking cursor.

I have ran memtest86 from a centOS CD I had lying around, after about an hour there were 650 or so errors. I've never used memtest86 so I have no idea if this would be the root of the problem or not. I've only ever had a bad stick of RAM once and the machine still booted but blue screened at random intervals.

Just looking for a bit of advise really, I don't really want to order some RAM if it's not going to fix the problem.
 

A:Laptop stuck with blinking cursor after post screen

If memtest86 says there are errors, you need new RAM.
