|I have a Gateway MX8711 (two months out of warranty) that will not boot. |
I did not install any new software or make any hardware changes, and it was having no problems before this happened. Last night, all of the sudden it beeped and froze. When I tried to restart, I got an error.
Something like: "Selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt." At the top it says something about winload.exe (and error 0xc000000f)
I tried to "Start Repair" it with the Operating System Disc, but it wouldn't. I tried to reload Windows Vista completely, but that wouldn't load either (it kept saying a "file is missing").
Gateway was no help. Best Buy was no help (unless I want to spend money).
Is there anything else I should try before giving up and spending money to have it repaired?
