HELP!! I bought a gateway desktop with windows 8 one year ago and everything was fine with it until I tried going on it this morning. I turn it on and get to the password screen I enter my password and a few seconds after I press enter it goes to a blank screen. Once on the blank screen I can't do anything except press ctrl alt del then I can either shut down, restart, or go into my task manager. I have tried restarting the computer and shutting it down letting it sit for a while then turning it back on but the problem still exists. Does anyone have any ideas to try.
