Having problems with your Gateway PC Desktops ?

I have a gateway 835gm and when i turn it on. It wont go pass the windows xp screen. it just keeps re-booting.

Answers :

If you have a windows boot cd, use it to get to the first boot screen where it asks you if you want to repair it or install XP. Try repair first and run check disk. If this doesnt work, then instead of pushing repair, press ENTER and do a reinstallation repair.
\015\012If you dont have a windows boot cd then you can download this ISO and burn it to a CD. It will boot and allow you to have a lot of diagnostic programs.
\015\012Go to this site and make a bootable cd. Once you have made it, go to the diagnostic category for hard drives. Run check disk first, then run the other ones if necessary. If it is a problem with the fileing system, then one of these tools will probably fix it.
