Computer problems???
When my computer boots up it shows the Gateway screen then it just goes black and stay that way. I have tried to reinstall my operating system but its says "checking computer hardware configuration" and then goes black again. What could be wrong with it?

Do you get to choose "last known good configuration."
If so, choose it

Have you tried to boot it up in Safe Mode? If not, reboot the computer and it will give you an option to press the F8 button before it loads the OS. Hit the F8 button and select 'Safe Mode' from the list. This will help hopefully load the OS so you can troubleshoot the problem.

This has happened to me as well. On the back of the computer there are two moniter outputs, on on the mother board one on the display card. try pluging your moniter in the other one.

I think your harddrive if fried, try check in your bios if your harddrive is recognized. Otherwise try re-installing it again.

The good news is that your computer boots up and you get the Windows menu screen. The bad news is that Windows doesn't like something it finds when it checks your hardware.

Bad memory can cause this problem. A bad hard disk would probably give you an error message. I would open my computer and try switching the RAM memory around. If you have 2 sticks take one out and see what happens; then try the second stick by itself and see if one of them will work,

If you only have a single stick try a different one.

Also, I would check my BIOS to make sure the hard disk is being recognized correctly (model and capacity). If it doesn't show the correct drive you may need to replace your hard disk. While you are in the BIOS you might select the "safe" configuaration which will load factory default settings.
