I have a gateway desktop DX (can't rememeber the rest, work at the moment)
It had windows 7 on it. Nvidea video card, bigger power supply.
The story goes, it is about 2 years old. It was starting to freeze up for 10 seconds at a time. I decided to do the erecovery system.
It might be worth mentioning the hard drive also had unbuntu loaded on it.
I ran erecovery ALt F10 and it eventually went into windows and was loading things after the format. It was still loading things when it asked for a reboot. I Rebooted. Now it just runs through the DOS part and cycles power. I tried running the recovery again and it formats but never boots to windows. I removed the video card just to take that out of the mix.
I installed a brand new hard drive. It now boots to the screen asking for a boot disk. I have tried windows 7 boot disks and unbuntu disks in the dvd drive and other cd drive, and an micro sd card. It fires up the cd drives but doesn't accept them. When the micro sd card is selected it just beeps a lot and freezes up.
I have spent a lot of time in the bios changing the boot order.
Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for any help.
