Gateway NV78 problem. Gateway screen with f2 showing bottom

Specs: Linux
I've had a Gateway NV78 Laptop for about 4 years now and have never had any problems. Today, when I turned it on it got stuck on the black screen with the Gateway logo showing, and on the bottom left corner it says "Press <F2> to enter setup". If I press F2 it then says "Please Wait...", but nothing happens, the screen just stays frozen like that.
Anyone know how to fix this issue???

This 1st thing I would try is shutdown the laptop, unplug the AC adapter, remove the battery, then press & hold the power button for at least 20 seconds. After doing that, reconnect everything & try powering it back up.

If that doesn't work, try response #3 in the following thread:
