Gateway with XP Black screen boot loop RRS feed

  • Question

  • My computer goes to a black screen with safe mode and other boot options. when I choose any of these options the PC will reboot and come back to this screen. I have also done the F3, F12 and F2 does not work. When I try Safe Mode it runs a list of drivers and always stops before completing the series. It then reboots. I have disconnected all outside hardware exept the keyboard, mouse and moniter. Any suggestions on a fix. I would prefer not to fdisk!!!

  • Hi,

    When did this issue begin to occur? After software\hardware change?

    As the issue persists when trying to boot into Safe Mode, it probably related to faulty hardware.

    Can you boot into BIOS?
