Yesterday I powered on my Gateway laptop, logged in, and it went about its usual start up procedure. Once everything was loaded I opened Firefox and began surfing the web. Then for some reason my computer froze and when I pressed CTRL ALT delete the screen went black. I turned the computer off, and tried again. This continues to happen so I decided to google the issue using my other laptop to see if I could find some solution. I ran across the forum site and saw someone else had a similar problem and fixed it by running a toshiba reinstall wizard by pressing f8 after restarting. I've tried running the msconfig and disabling everything that isnt microsoft, and I tried searching sfc but it never opened. Is there anyone who knows what I can do to solve this issue?
