I have an older gateway solo laptop that has been recently acting up. The problem I’ve been having is that the computer will not load the OS. It stops responding before the windows logo. It won’t even show the system messages like it usually does (i.e. the amount of ram, processor, ect.). I can get it to start up by inserting the 98 disk and holding the ctrl key to get a boot from CD prompt. After that it works for a while then does the same thing. What do you think? Harddrive shot?
