Big Problem, or Little Problem? Computer not starting up...
Well, my uncle called me yesterday telling me that his Gateway (w/ amd 3800 I want to say it is) was just sitting at the BIOS flash screen and not starting up. I went down there and sure enough it just sits there. So, I reset the CMOS with the jumper, then went in to bios and put the HDD as first boot again, and then booted it up. This time it worked just fine. So I told him to let me know if it happened again, and sure enough it did. He said he shut down the computer (for an extended period of time, overnight) and when he went to turn it on this morning, it halts at the BIOS screen again, and nothing loads like before. Does any one know what's causing this, as obviously the hard drive is fine....I honestly haven't a clue....
