Can't load Gateway BIOS

October 1, 2010 at 10:31:45
Specs: Windows XP
First off, specs: I have a gateway GT5662 with MCP61PM-GM motherboard, AMD Phenom processor, 4 gigs of ram, 2 samsung, 2 generic staples ram. Also a Radeon 5750 graphics card, and a Netgear wireless N pci card.

The wireless network card is newest and problem started around a week after i inserted it. Computer started acting up and I kept getting BSOD so I removed card, but then OS wouldn't load (vista). I did a reset pci configuration data through the BIOS and now nothing loads. I turn on power and fan spins that's all. Fan spins on both graphics card and motherboard.

Please help with this issue, I want my PC back!

Other than installing and then removing the card, did you do anything else while inside the case?

Remove the power cord and open the case. Disconnect all the drives and remove all cards except video. Make notes on how they're installed/connected if necessary so you can put it all back together right.

Then plug it back in and start it up. Do you get a posting screen? If not, it's either the power supply, motherboard or both.

You might try removing the CMOS battery for about 30 seconds to clear the CMOS data. You could then reload optimized or fail safe defaults(whichever seems to work) if the BIOS allows for that.
