Hi You need to run the memory test. You may have bad memory from the look of the screen if You are using built-in video. Otherwise You may have a bad video card.

 

***** A. If you have more than one RAM module installed, try starting computer with one RAM stick at a time.

NOTE Keep in mind, the manual check listed above is always superior to the software check, listed below. DO NOT proceed with memtest, if you can go with option A

B. If you have only one RAM stick installed...
...run memtest...

1. Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)
2. Unzip downloaded memtest86+-....iso.zip file.
3. Inside, you'll find memtest86+-....iso file.
4. Download, and install ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/


Warning! Please read this first.
When Installing imgburn, be sure to choose custom and do not install any optional junk.


5. Insert blank CD into your CD drive.
6. Open ImgBurn, and click on Write image file to disc
7. Click on Browse for a file... icon:

8. Locate memtest86+-....iso file, and click Open button.
9. Click on ImgBurn green arrow to start burning bootable memtest86 CD:
10. Once the CD is created, boot from it, and memtest will automatically start to run.

The running program will look something like this depending on the size and number of ram modules installed:


main_menu.jpg

It's recommended to run 5-6 passes. Each pass contains very same 8 tests.

This will show the progress of the test. It can take a while. Be patient, or leave it running overnight.

Any red lines in the the test results indicate bad memory.

The most important item here is the “errors” line. If you see ANY errors, even one, most likely, you have bad RAM.

 Good Luck

Roger

Can you go through the set up process?

 

watched youtube yesterday, when the screen freezed, and it came red waves flashing all over the screen. Restarted the computer, and windows 7 repair started, then it said it could not repair it self... so windows just rebooted time after time. So i tried to format my harddrive and reinstall windows. 

 

Now it looks like this:

 

first this comes up: https://imageshack.com/i/iqzSa8sIj

then this: https://imageshack.com/i/f0D67pL8j

then: https://imageshack.com/i/eysOGRx8j (note, i cant start in safe mode)

last, it freezes here: https://imageshack.com/i/exvq8bCSj

Hi, yes those are the RAM.

 

BTW It almost looks like the memory on the top left is not seated properly. Try a remove and re-install first.

Thank You for the picture.

 

Take Notice that they are in matched pairs. I would start by pulling one pair and see what happens, then if no improvement put them back and remove the other pair. It is extremely rare that more than one would go bad at the same time.

 

When You remove them I suggest going to the Gateway site and looking at their instruction on memory changing. It is possible to damage the sockets. On Yours it looks like pushing the white tabs (locks) will free and lift the memory. memory can only go in one way when You insert it. Be careful

 

Good Luck

Roger

but will a RAM do this to the picture? messing the graphic up? if you look at the links i posted

 

In #4 I mentioned

You may have bad memory from the look of the screen if You are using built-in video. Otherwise You may have a bad video card.

 

If You have both a built in video and a video card You could try removing the video card and switching to the built in as a test.

 

A Bad video card could have bad memory or be damaged from overheating. One of the problems with video cards is that the fan is on the bottom. Thus they tend to get overlooked when dust is being cleaned out or the fan goes bad.

 

I have also seen that caused by bad capacitors on a video card. That one I re-capped it and kept on using it.

 

Good Luck

Roger

Most Likely the RAM is good although the test process does mention

"It's recommended to run 5-6 passes. Each pass contains very same 8 tests."

I would look at the video next.

Great, It is good to hear that it was a simple problem. The hard part is often the elimination process.

 

Good Luck
