I have 3 year old Gateway DX4720-03. Twice today I got the blue screen memory dump, didn't know what to do so turned off computer at tower. The 2nd time I turned it back on, it went to the screen to select to start up in safe mode etc. I just chose to start up regular way. Got my desk top with no problem, started running Spybot, then everything went black. Had to turn it off at tower again. Now when I turn it on I just get the Gateway Logo, then no signal RGB then screen goes dark again. It sounds like it wants to boot up but then the blue light display for the power button just fades in & out & nothing happens. Is my hard drive shot or do I have a virus or trogen horse?
