 How old is this computer?  I did a search in the US web site for Gateway and it said "We're sorry, we can't find any results for nv53a. Please try another search."  So I conclude that this must be a very old computer that maybe wasn't built for Windows 7 and won't support it.


Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

How are you trying to install Windows, with a DVD or USB? Are you doing this through Gateway's factory reset?

 

Are you having problems with the computer?

 

Are you installing to a blank hard drive? 

 

Do you need any data off the hard drive if it is not blank?

 

If the computer boots and you want to reinstall Windows 7 backup your data and try doing a Factory Reset per instructions here.

You have used both DVD and USB? What did you use to create the bootable Windows 7 USB? When you say logo, do you mean the Windows logo or does it freeze at the Gateway logo?

The following is if you do not have a Windows 7 iso image.

 

Using your Install DVD, create an iso image using Imgburn. Opt out of any optional programs during the install. Select a read speed no faster than 8x if possible.

 

After the iso image is created use Rufus to create a bootable USB flash drive. Start Rufus, make sure you flash drive is listed. Use MBR partition scheme. Allow Quick Format. Leave everything checked that is default. Select iso image in the dropdown box that shows FreeDos. Click the folder icon and browse to the iso file. Press Start. Backup any data on the flash drive first. I am not sure if Gateway has a boot menu at startup. Attach the flash drive and boot. Tap either the Esc or F10 key. This may bring up a boot menu for selecting your boot device. 

 

If you still have a problem download Hirens CD. Using the same procedure with the iso and Rufus create a bootable USB flash drive or burn the iso to CD. Boot  Hirens and in the menu system look for Hard Disk tools. Select Seatools for DOS and run the short and long generic tests. If it passes then start Hirens again and under Testing Tools select Memtest+86. Run the memory test for at least 6 passes and preferably overnight.
