Hello I am having a whole bunch of problems w/ my gateway mx6436. The main problem is that it got a blue screen error w/ a stop code of
***STOP: 0x000000F7 (0xCCCCCCCC, 0x00003518, 0xFFFFCAE7, 0x00000000)
when i try booting up. When i turn on the laptop normally, it takes me to a black screen that gives me boot options like "Start windows normally, with last known good configurations, safe mode, safe mode w/ networking, safe mode w/ command prompt. If i try to start windows normally or w/ last known good configurations, it flashes the blue screen & restarts. If i try to go on safe mode it loads up all the drivers then restarts without a blue screen. Then the cycle repeats
Here are the methods i tried to use and how they all failed:
Recovering w/ the operating system disk that came with my computer-> loads up but freezes at "please wait"
i tried pressing f12 when it boots->"PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM Operating system not found" then it just stops at that
trying to install windows again w/ a windows xp cd i bought-> freezes at "setup is starting windows"
i tried pressing f5 & selecting ACPI, going to BIOS and disabling the USB & LAN drivers
i ran chkdsk and registry repair on the hard drive multiple times and it didnt change anything.
I have a usb cable that can connect my hard drive to a working computer so i backed up all my data
Sorry for the long post. thanks in advance. I just need some kind of method to fix my computer. I dont care if my memory gets erased or not
