Having problems with your Gateway PC Desktops ?

Desktop frozen with the monitor showing disorted, green blocks

\015 I have a Gateway 420GR it boots up to the windows screen but after a minute it freezes completely, and there are these distorted green blocks all over the screen. I don't know if its the graphics card or the whole hard drive.\015

Answers :

Try rebooting your computer with a disc or discs that came with it. That disc or discs should reinstall windows. If this does not work try getting linux or dos on a cd an try betting from the cd instead of the HDD. If this does not work either then it must your graphics card or HDD. I am leaning more towards graphics card because ussually your computer will give you a blue screen if your hard drive fails.

My Son for some reason changed the monitor connected to his AMD Athlon Desktop Computer but the green light on the Monitor only flashes but shows no video. He changed the monitor back to the old one and still could not get the Computer to communicate with the Computer. So far he has tried with 3 different Monitors and still cannot have the Monitor to show any video. Meanwhile, only the keyboard lock or reset button seems to produce any reaction from the Computer. It produces some squeaky sound.
