I have a gateway laptop.....purchased about 1 1/2 years ago. When I try to boot up I get a black screen...then it says to hit the F2 button......then I get the gateway emblem........then nothing. Any suggestions as to what could be the problem???

Try this trick :

Remove battery an press on holding power button for 1 minute then connect adapter to it followed by pressing power button. Now make a shutdown ,connect battery and adapter.

Already tried that!!! but thanks for responding.
