Solved Gateway lx6200-01, Bios, Windows 7

September 3, 2013 at 19:13:32
Specs: Windows XP
Electric went out in the house and the computer was not turned off correctly. Now the Computer is stuck in stand-by, sleep mode, or conserving power mode. The computer start light (blue) will remain on for a second and then blink. The monitor is not responding and even with the monitor unplugged the computer behaves the same. I have unplugged the entire unit for at least 15 minutes to remove all static electricity. I would like to get BIOS for my flash drive to by pass the problem and or new drivers. Please provide guidance, web links, or other help.

Thank You
Mark
P.S. on my other computer

A couple things to try....

- unplug the power cord
- disconnect all external devices except for monitor & keyboard
- hold the power button in for about 15 seconds then release
- re-plug the power cord & attempt to boot & enter the BIOS

No good?

- unplug the power cord again
- open the case & wiggle all connections to make sure they're secure
- snap the memory in & out of the slots a few times to reseat the contacts
- use the clear CMOS jumper to reset the BIOS (move jumper from normal position to clear position, wait a few seconds, then move it back)
- re-plug the power cord & attempt to boot & enter the BIOS

I tried the troubleshooting but still no go. Disconnected as instructed still no response from the computer. Unplugged all Ram, hard drive, and any other cord i could wiggle or test. --- did not - use the clear CMOS jumper to reset the BIOS - Didn't know how??

"did not - use the clear CMOS jumper to reset the BIOS - Didn't know how??"

The jumper is usually near the motherboard battery. Here's a couple of pics:

Just pull the jumper cap off, move it to the next 2-pins, wait a few seconds, then move it back to the original 2-pins. Make sure th power cord is unplugged when you do it.
