    I am trying to fix my friends computer. I loads up to the gateway screen and just sits there. I tried switching hard drives. I am guessing that it is the Bios. Is there a way to flash the bios on a gateway?

    Aren't gateways & such suppose to have a recovery disk?

    If not set the bios to boot the xp cd first, boot up then follow the screen to the repair option or last know good configuration.

    i think its ALT+F8 to flash the biso but you need the new bios or upgrade on a disk. trying hitting the F2 key or the delete key to get into the bios, start hitting it right before it gets to that Gateway logo screen.

    Thank for all the help but none of that worked. Maybe the board is bad?
