Gateway NV52 BSOD

by meandmgo - 12/26/12 10:53 PM

I have 2
GB memory ATI Radeon 3200 graphics 320 GB hard drive and Windows 7 Sorry I can't provide more specs but I can't get pass the black screen to access anything.<div>My
laptop turns on but immediately goes to a black screen. The black screen is just that, no power or flicker of anything. The laptop is
on the fans are running and the blue power lights are on but none of
the keyboard lights are displayed. This actually happened about 7
months ago and through reading many posts I came to the conclusion
the motherboard must be bad but I couldn't afford to fix it. Being
bored last night I decided to search forums again and found a new
suggestion which was to remove 1 of the memory sticks and then power
it up again. To my joy and relief it powered right on display and
all. Thinking maybe I had a virus I did a complete factory re install setting it back to Windows Vista. I then re installed the other memory
stick and Everything was working fine. I then re installed windows 7
using the upgrade disks provided by gateway. I also allowed all of
the windows updates to perform. Windows 7 installed and it appeared
the problem was solved. When I was completely done I powered down the
laptop for about 20 minutes and then went to use it for it just to go
back to the original problem. I tried the original fix again removing
1 of the memory sticks but to no avail. Is this just a coincidence
that it restarted being an intermittent problem with the hardware or
is there some sort of conflict with Windows 7 that had developed. If
I can get it to turn back on again I will go back to Windows Vista
and see if that fixes the problem. Any ideas?Also
I forgot to mention when installing Windows 7 I was informed there is
a compatibility issue with ATI but before this problem it previously
ran fine for over a year with no problems. </div>
