Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, 3.368 GHz / 4095 MB
My friend brought me his Gateway laptop with Vista home premium on it and it wont load windows it just has that loading windows bar going across the screen forever so I formatted it and reloaded windows using his key, then installed all the updates works great as soon as im finished geting everything done my last restart goes into the same continuous loading windows problem! WHAT HAPPENED!? It was fine I just did a fresh install safe mode wont load either. I tried using the disk to fix the startup issue but it loads the disk then right b4 it starts the menu it just goes to the continuous loading problem so I CANT EVEN ACESSS THE SETUP DISK! AHHH!

If you did a complete format & it still has the same problem, I would try two things. First reset the BIOS to defaults, then do a memory test.

You didn't mention the shock thing before. Anything is possible now.

But why would that cause it to abnormaly start not wanting to boot it just keeps loading windows sounds liek a hardrive problems everything else has its function and i dont think they have anything to do with a software problem besides the hdd that I can think of.

First of all, what does "kinda like" dropped it or sat on it, mean? I suggest that you be more specific in your communication with people. You'll do a lot better.

Secondly, even "kinda like" dropping can knock something lose, such as RAM. Why would you think it's a software problem if it started happening after it was "kinda like" dropped?

I used "kinda liek" becuase It wasent fully explained what happened to it to me. And if the ram was loose it wouldent work at all, not spotty? Its liek saying if A piece got knocked out it wont work not work when it wants to and not (sounds liek a fried chip pblm)

See my post #3 here:

Edge connecters can "kinda liek" play up when kit gets "shock frictin ".

Geez, I'm having a language difficulty LOL.

I just ran a hardware check on the cpu and ram and everything came back OK. Can there still be a ram problem?

I don't really know the reason for your problem but it sure sounds like hardware, and I doubt a blown chip would have allowed you back on after the reload. It is much more likely that the jolt did something.

I agree that RAM now looks less likely but I would never underestimate edge connectors (including graphics card etc) because intermittent faults might get missed by tests. If it is reasonably accessible I would check all internal connections are pressed home and do the edge connector clean too.

If it wasn't fully explained to you, then you couldn't fully explain it to us. One thing is for sure. It's a hardware problem.

Anything is possible I suppose but somehow I think the HD would have come up with much more severe symptoms.

I highly doubt the RAM is the problem, the problem doesn't mimic a RAM issue at all. I would check the connector on the hard drive, the same thing happened to me on my desktop running XP, the startup screen stayed up and that bar went forever. I unplugged the IDE cable and plugged it back in and all has been well.
