Hello Everyone,.....Please HELP if you can.
Gateway M-1625 Laptop
Vista Home Premium 32
Microsoft Wireless Laser Keyboard & Mouse
Cause of Problem:
I powered-up my laptop unaware that my note pad was depressing the Windows, Alt, and Space Bar keys simultaneously on my wireless keyboard. Upon hearing continues beeps,...I immediately removed the note pad and shut down the computer by depressing the start-button.
After waiting 5 minutes,...I restarted the laptop and was unable to boot-up OS and received the following message.
