Issue: Computer started freezing after a complete factory recovery.
Gateway GT5405E Refurbished
2.8 GHz Intel Pentium D Processor 820
2 Gigs of Ram
Vista Home Premium 32bit
Ok so the computer started freezing after a factory recovery I had Dualboot of Vista HP 32bit and Ubuntu 10.04. Well I decided I didn't want Ubuntu 10.04 on my computer anymore so I went to Google and downloaded EasyBCD to rewrite the bootloader. After the rewrite I restarted the computer let the computer load up restarted the computer and put in the recovery disc. I did a Factory Recovery as I said. Well after that I noticed I don't see Gateway Splash screen where it says hit F1 F2 or whatever to enter setup. Didn't really pay any attention to that so I'm on my computer after the recovery and went away to do something. I came back to my computer after how ever long and noticed the computer was frozen. Well at least the keyboard of mouse would not work.
Keyboard is PS/2
Mouse is USB
(I knew keyboard wasn't working because when I pressed num lock the light just stayed on)
So after a hard restart in which HDD check didn't come up but it did give the windows didn't shutdown correct screen and gave a choice between normal or safe mode. Anyway I did some looking 3 days straight found out turn off screen saver and screen turning off in power settings. So I did well the problem seemed to go away. Or at least it seemed like it did. I just wasn't leaving the computer idle for longer than 15 mins. Well as you can imagine it happened again so I went deep in to power settings turned off harddrive turning off after 20 mins which is default I guess in high performance power settings which I have it set to. Well It seemed to fix it because the computer does freeze any more. WOOT! But no I came in my room after only God knows how long and white screen of death. My LCD Monitor (19' AOC LCD Monitor VGA Connected) was all white nothing. I was pissed so I didn't even give the computer time to respond I just hard restarted.
I've looked and looked all over the googler and found nothing useful to my situation. Anyone that can help me plz help!
