Have tried to reinstall Windows and at the point where the program indicates 25 minutes left for completion of reinstall, it goes to the same power save mode notice and blank screen. I thought I was attempting to repair Windows by using the Windows reinstall program. Looks like I ended up starting a hard drive reformat (done this on prior crashes with this PC). However, this time I never got a warning that I was about to erase the contents of the hard drive. It just took me to the process of reinstalling Windows.
Is it time to get rid of this one? I have a lap top which still connects to the internet through a wireless router hooked up to Gateway. Something must still be alive with the Gateway?
