Preferred Solution: Gateway Laptop isn't working

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Gateway Laptop isn't working

When something works in Safe Mode but not while in Normal it points to a driver issue. Have you tried updating your WiFi/Network Interface Card (NIC) drivers for your system from Gateway's website?

Do you use a cooling pad? Laptops can get hot quickly and high temps will freeze/shut-down a system fast.

I have a Gateway laptop NE56R41u with windows 8 and I have been having alot of trouble with it, it was fine until I loaned it to my cousin. Ever since I got it back it boots up pretty quickly as it always has, but once you try to do anythng it freezes and locks up, forcing you to restart it. I tried resetting it to factory default but it didn't fix the problem, please help

A:Gateway Laptop - wifi and networking stopped working

If you can easily access the wireless adapter through a cover on the bottom remove and carefully and firmly replace it several times to cure any possible looseness or corrosion problems. Make sure the antenna leads are secure.

If it still fails to turn on or detect any networks then probably the card or the switch has failed.

I have a Gateway M675 that has an overheating problem. I know this because I took the back off and pointed a desktop fan at it. Before it would BSOD or just flat out shut off. Now w/ the fan it stays on for as long as the fans blowin on it. I noticed the fans (3) all shut down after windows starts up. I though I was going to have to replace all of them but noticed they work during boot up then quit. I didnt see anything in the BIOS for fan control. Any Ideas? I thought fans stay on as long as there is power unless something is stopping them. Could a bad battery be the culprit? This laptop does not run unless plugged in, I know that means I need to replace the battery but I wanted to make sure this laptop wasnt DOA and spent 100 bucks for a battery.

as stated in the title, the laptop will not boot windows. every now and then it will try to. it will work its way passed the gateway splash screen and the screen will go black with the white dot progress indicator in the middle of the screen and there it will stay till you turn off the computer. however there are times that it doesnt even make it off the splash page.

the lap top is not mine so i do not know any of the specs of it off hand the casing does not have a model name/number. i do know it is running windows 8.1 and that this issue occurred after waking the laptop up from hibernate. i know this is not much to go off of but any help regarding this issue would greatly help me out. thank you.

Hi There ,

I just reformatted my Gateway NV54 laptop with windows Vista on it.
My sound is working fine but my microphone is not working at all. I have tried both the inbuilt mic and an external one.
I downloaded the latest audio driver from http://support.gateway.com/product/default.aspx?modelId=2376 which is the conexant 4.98.9.0. (x84)

When I run the driver setup it just says "Driver installation failed: Could not find the device for this driver."
I am confused because as far as I know because my sound is working that means my audio driver working?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Could not find the device for this driver

That error message suggests to me that you're trying to install the wrong driver for that sound device.
Please double-check on the Gateway website, there may be a choice of two or more audio drivers for that model, depending on what hardware was available at the factory when your laptop was assembled.

If there is a choice, you may have downloaded the wrong one or selected a laptop model which is not exactly the same as yours.

I've seen a couple of posts about issues with the sound card on the Gateway M-1617 Notebook. Mine is Vista (I guess some are XP) but the sound is just not working. Control Panel insists that everything is enabled and working fine. I tried using both speakers and headphones, and I'm not getting anything. Does anyone have any drivers that will work with my computer?
It's a HDMI audio system.

Please send me links to drivers that won't screw up my notebook, preferably not system files. I really like this computer. Just help me out.

Hello,
I am currently having issues connecting to the internet on my personal computer. It has always been on a wired connection to my ASUS router model: RT-ac66r. I also have my work client connected to the router, and that seems to be working perfectly fine (I am writing this post on here). Also, WiFi is not effected either as my phone is connected to it and working just fine.

The issue started when i rebooted my computer because I had done a malware scan. Once rebooted, the computer started up fine and even the network showed as connected. But when i opened up Chrome, all my pages wouldn't load. I then tried IE and that didn't work, as well. I cannot seem to figure out what the problem is. Hopefully someone here can. Please let me know if you need anymore information. I will gladly provide it to you. Thank you very much.

Hi guys, I'm new to the forums.

I recently bought (3-4 months ago) a fx-6802 desktop and a sennheiser pc 31 headset to play videos games and stuff.

Everything was working quite fine until 2 hours ago.

My headset mic stopped working all of a sudden. So I searched google for everything that could help me. Did like 4567 modifications witht he realtek drivers.

Uninstalled and re-installed all realtek drivers, but no results.

Any help is appreciated obviously

Since it was working fine since then, could it be that my headset is broken ( It's relatively new)

I can still hear sounds pretty well with my headset but mic stopped working all of a sudden.

A:Gateway fx6802 + Sennheiser pc 31 mic not working

The first step when something is working and then doesn't work, such as this, is to use the System Restore function and restore the PC back to a date when it did work. That solves many problems. System Restore can be accessed from Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools. Give it a try.

Hello, I purchased my Gateway NV55S02u laptop about 8 months ago and I have been busy and never really tried to resolve this problem. One out of three of my USB drive functions normally. Is it possible to scan my laptop and post a log with hijackthis or something? I suspect that it might be a hardware problem but I don't want to jump the gun.

Hmm; sounds more like a bad/corrupt USB driver.

b) expand [+] Universal Serial Bus controllers

are you sure you put these devices in discoverable mode?
(this is really important...)
also did you update any bluetooth drivers to allow for any extra profiles that you might need...


also check if the iphone sees the computer (to make sure the computer is discoverable)
as a last resort you can try bluesoleil BlueSoleil, the most easy-to-use, innovative and interoperable Bluetooth software, Bluetooth driver and see if that fixes your situation...

XP Gateway laptop I ve spent a lot of time on the microsoft websites help section trying different methods to fix different problem finally got it to work with internet But assuming there are two versions I think they installed the desktop version of WinXP on it It doesn t have any of the normal differences an XP laptop has vs an xp desktop like it has no battery reading and refuses to acknowledge it s a laptop and has a battery thus refuses to charge the battery so it must be plugged in to work I don t know the first thing to how to fix that Also I m pretty sure these things come with wifi it s not that old it s a M like this one It has no indication of capability to connect to wireless internet so I have to keep the ethernet cable in at all times too I m primarily a Mac user as you might have guessed topped with the fact that I haven t been sleeping much the past week or so this is appearing to be a challenge IE fails and as soon as I got it connected to the net popups started coming up and it kept freezing going to websites and I kept having to ctrl alt del it so I got safari and it s working a lot more smoothly But every time I turned on the com or connected the net IE would turn itself on and put out popups It has no uninstall so I tried to do it manually but it wouldn t let me and trying to get around it deleting the files separately they just kept magically reappearing so I found a way to cripple it and I deleted all the short cuts Outlook also fails and I couldn t get it to work and I didn t know why so I downloaded thunderbird and it works great except I can t send emails I have Verizon FIOS I m using outgoing verizon net for the smtp but it s not working Another problem is the sound I don t hear anything I m not sure why it has built in speakers doesn t it I ve already checked all the volume and sound settings it all appears to be working fine All the default devices are set to SigmaTel Audio whatever that is there is no other option I looked in the device manager and I saw it in there SigmaTel C-Major Audio with other things I m assuming the others or at least of the others are basic stuff that comes when you install the OS The only thing aside from SigmaTel that has the capability of being enabled and disabled is quot Unimodem Half-Duplex Audio Device quot they were both already enabled Also forgot to mention I tried headphones external comp speakers a guitar amp and a TV built in speaker and still no sound I use to use Windows before Mac and I remembered back in the day at least for anything you had to install a driver to make it work I don t think that still applies on WinXP the speakers I was using are Klipsch ProMedia GMX A- Speakers I checked their website and around the net and there doesn t appear to be a driver I read the manual too there s nothing about having software to install What should I try next And is there a way to tell it it s a laptop so it ll charge the battery and all I have no OS disc obviously so if I have to reinstall it like I m thinking I might I can t so let me know if there s an alternative to that And if you happen to know what I should do about the smtp server thing let me know I m thinking I ll just call verizon Thanks for any help you can give nbsp

I wanted to include it in my insurance claim with my other damage but the insurance wants proof I guess. Every place I've cotacted is going to charge me an arm and leg just to look at it. Can someone tell me what part could be damaged if it was hit my a power surge or what parts might need replacing. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Hi,
I got blue screen of death on my laptop and it keeps on restarting before the window can actually boot up. It show's this message and reboots every single time when starting up Windows XP. I tried recovering the windows from the Recovery CD but it goes to the Gateway Symbol n freezes there and I have to restart the system every single time and try to boot from the recovery CD. it goes searching for recovery date on the hard drive and if not found any it will boot the recovery cd. but it goes to this scan and just freezes there with running the recovery data from the cd. Any help would be appreciated.

to enable you to see what 's going on, you need to disable the automatic reboot sequence.
that 's to be found in My Computer - rightclick / Properties / Advanced TAB / Startup & Recovery panel / Settings button
Then untick the box in front of "Automatically restart"

Then try to recreate the problem; you 'll get a blue screen (BSOD) with some info in it.

Please post what 's in the top part, some numbers and some text ( a few lines in total )

What is the model # of your Gateway. I would expect that when you double click and open Computer the device should be there as well.

this may be a stupid question for the experts here but here it goes...

My girlfriends laptop is having issues. its a gateway m-1617. her hdd failed so I replaced it with a working spare I had from a hp vista laptop. specs were the same so I thought it may work. but I am unable to re-install vista on it. the hdd is recognized in bios but when I get into the vista install screen there is no hard drive located to format.

Do I need to order an EXACT replacement for the OEM hdd or can I make this one work somehow? Or is there possible other hardware failure??

A:Gateway Laptop .. What do you think about this?

Did you actually experience a lightning strike as the log stated? If so then I havent heard of a company that covers computers against such damage. If it was working except for the battery not charging before you sent it to them, thenI would indeed get some action here. Is the laptop not working when you recieved it back. A lightning strike may or may not be detectable at the user level observation. It can take on the characteristics of plain ordinary Static discharge damage (no noticable damage but integrated circuits fried) to severe physical damage such as case melting and worse.

The thing I am wondering is was it working normally except for the battery charging? Or were you not able to tell because the power adapter was not working?

By the way PCB usually stands for Printed Circuit Board. If there was a failure of the ciruit board this would cause a boot failure. And yes a lightning strike could cause Printed Circuit Board failure.

I have a Gateway laptop with windows it shut itself down 8 working Cursor/Keyboard Windows Please Help! Solved: Gateway Not and restored it has done this before with no issues The computer loaded and is at the start page where all the apps are listed I cannot use the cursor it doesn t show up When it goes to sleep usually I can hit the space bar and it responds but nothing seem the whole key board is frozen I have tried the function keys for the cursor and nothing I have taken my mouse from my other computer to try to use it in the lap top and nothing I have turned the computer off and on still nothing I use my laptop for work and I am frustrated now that I can t get in to it It seems locked somehow or stuck When I hit the F for help it does Solved: Please Help! Gateway Windows 8 Cursor/Keyboard Not working open the desktop page and I see the help box but I can t click on it The only way to wake the computer up to see the screen I unplug or replug the power cord in Other than that it seems to go back to sleep I have googled and went to so many places to get help and nothing Thank You nbsp

A:Solved: Please Help! Gateway Windows 8 Cursor/Keyboard Not working

Solved Myself:

Here's what I did.
Turned laptop off and back on again
While on the windows loading screen hit Alt + F10 (held down alt and tapped F10 several times)
Took me to the refresh page - Used tab and enter to choose
Tried to refresh without removing my files (DID NOT WORK)
Repeated first 2 steps
At refresh screen tab down to advance and did a full reload which took comp back to beginning settings
Chose all my features etc as I did when it was new
Plugged in mouse before completing the walk through for windows new settings to load(AT THE SCREEN WHERE I HAD TO CHECK THE BOX TO AGREE TO TERMS)

MOUSE FINALLY WORKED

Comp loaded fine cursor still did not work
Hit F6 (Not function + F6)
Finally worked

Reinstalled my things like: skype, firefox, Free Open office by Apache

Lesson: Back up everything on external hard drive at least once a week or more depending on how often computer is used. Since I use it for work I will back up files more than once a week just in case I have to do a complete restore I will still have all my files to download back to my laptop. Sometimes if I am in a hurry I email the document or file, song, whatever to my email...that way if I didn't back it up I can always access my email from any computer.

Thanks!

Well, I decided to reboot again and go into the BIOS. I did, changing absolutely nothing (even choosing the "discard changes" exit option), logged onto Windows, and the problem was solved.

I have no idea how that worked, but it did.

I can't find a delete thread option, so if an admin is reading this, go ahead and just delete this.

Hi,
I am trying to fix a Gateway MX3702 Notebook for a suitemate of mine. When it starts up, it loads the initial Gateway bootscreen, and then goes to a black screen for approximately 5-10 minutes. After that a loading bar appears across the bottom of the screen, and it takes about 30 more minutes to fully load. After that load XP starts up fine and there are no other discernable problems.
It is a clean install of XP after a complete reformat; I was thining it might have something to do with a corrupt NTLDR file but I replaced it with the recovery console to no avail.
Any ideas would be appreciated greatly.
Thanks in advance.

I looked at it, and it has booted every time but once (30 different boots). The one time it didn't the BIOS did not recognize the hard drive as being present. Its a tough problem because its very hard to duplicate the error. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. She is running Windows XP Home edition.

My dad found this random laptop at the junkyard today and it looks to be in good condition and it's a nice laptop, but it will not turn on. I thought it was the battery, but it's been on the charger all evening and it still won't do more than flash the screen for a split second and the power button and then shut off every time I try. I googled it and tried doing the whole hold the power button for 30 seconds thing but no luck there either. Is there anything else I could try? It'd be nice to take this "trash" notebook and get it running.

Things are often at the junkyard for a reason. It could be that the charger or charging circuit is no good. I guess that would be the best scenario. Only way to tell is to get a new charger or bring it somewhere. It all costs money.

Not sure why the error when attempting to install from the recovery partition. First suggestion is to contact Gateway tech support. At the very least they should be able to send you the recovery CDs at a minimal cost.

How ever, I looked up the specs to your lap top. It has a SATA hard drive. When installing XP (not sure where you got it from?) it requires drivers to to be preloaded for the SATA interface.

They should be downloaded from the Gateway site for you specific make\model\OS

My daughter just started college and her laptop is here with me. Everytime she goes to use it or shall I say move it when she is on it the whole pc shuts off the screen goes out too. We try to call Gateway but they are so rude and unwilling to help becaue the warrany is up and wont talk with out a credit card number to charge a fee. It's crazy. Could there be a battery problem or an electrical problem?

Is there something to do to troubleshoot? As I stated above the computer will be on and running normal. If we move it a certain way the entire pc will just shut off and the screen goes black and you have to reboot the whole pc.

I am repairing a Gateway NV50a laptop for my neice. I have everything done except Antivrus and a new DVD drive. I need advice on where to buy the drive. I am totally not confident about getting the right thing online. The drive is toshiba TS-L633F / ACBFZ. Is the last part of that significant? I find lots of TS-L633F online but the last part is different. Also some are selling the drives bare bones where you reuse some rails and frame. The problem with the old drive is that it comes completely out of the laptop, so I'm afraid with a bare bones drive I'll have the same problem. Can I buy the complete drive from Gateway?

Thanks in advance
Lee

If you examine the DVD drive you may notice there is a plastic surround and a connection adaptor that both screw onto the 'barebones' drive. If they are present you can usually unscrew them and then screw them onto any laptop Optical drive. The only other thing to check is the height of the drive, 12mm is standard but there are some 9.5mm ones.

Computer was slow; used Quad Reg. Cleaner, rebooted but went to "safe boot" screen; selected 1st item "Safe boot" but the loading stops on crcdisk.sys with a "please wait" message. Removed and replaced the battery and selected "Normal boot." It booted but nothing works, not even the keyboard and touchpad; used the "on screen keyboard" to key in the password but after the desktop comes up, it can't find the network; can't access Control Panel although I can access change/remove programs; can't reset the system to a previous point. Any advice will be appreciated.

Hello,

I have a hp pavillion lap top and with the lap top came, the OS Windows XP operating system cd and the driver/software cd. I have a gateway laptop, which has crashed, can I use the above cd's that came with the HP Pavillion on the Gateway?

My only concern realy, is the drivers and software, which I may or may I, get from the gateway website.

Yes, I am trying to save 20.00, but 20.00 is a 1/4 tank of gas, which is a lot, when you have lost your job....

Thank you for your input!

A:Can I load my hp pc xp os onto a gateway laptop

I would not...but it's your system and you can do what you like with it.

Legally? No, if you read the terms of sale.

Gateway disks are made for Gateway systems, HP disks are made for HP systems...they are not tranferrable to systems made by a different manufacturer. They plan it that way.

Contact Gateway support and purchase replacement recovery DVDs. The cost is usually about $25 -

Wipe the HDD with KillDisk, then use new recovery disc to reinstall Vista.

My master volume was significantly low while watching a movie. I went into the sounds application in Windows 7 64 Bit and I was able to increase the master volume. I then increased another level, but at this point, I am not positive what it was. However, after I moved the gauge to the right, the machine started making an extremely high pitched noise. It was so high that I panicked and shut the machine off by pressing and holding the power button. Now, I am unable to boot my machine up at all. When I turn the power on, it goes to the Windows emblem and it simply sticks there.

I have a gateway laptop that I want to install windows xp pro on. I get it to boot and it gets to the point of being ready to install then I get a blue screen that is a stop screen. It keeps telling me disable BIOS shadowing. I have looked every where in the bios and do not see this. I want to be able to use this computer but so far nothing is working the way I want it to. Gateway will not help me because they say it is not in their scope of support.
I have installed a second hard drive also and tried to boot to that drive and use it.
But no luck.
I know this may not get answered but if anyone can help me will you.
Thank you

Read your manual on how to enter Bios and look for an entry that uses wording like 'xx is cacheable' with options to ' Enable Disable' and select Disable.

DO NOT change anything else.

Whats up TSG! I have a Gateway 600YGR laptop with XP Pro, 512mb ram(2 chips) and 60GB hd. Here is my problem: When I boot up the laptop, it takes forever for me to even click on anything on the desktop to run them. When I finally do, it freezes...I mean no mouse, no HD activityno nothing! So as you may have figured, I have to do a cold boot but when I do, the laptop wont even complete the boot process. It will hang at the splash screen. I have to leave the laptop off for about 4-5 mins before I can boot again and actually get to the desktop! I can then work for about another 2 mins before it freezes again. I thought it may be memory so I removed each chip and tested (256mb chips, 2 of them). No good. You think HD is failing?

No. this sounds to me as though the heatsink has not bee fitted properly and/or the fan is not working. It certainly sounds as though it is overheating very quickly.

A:Gateway laptop crashed

Hi chart2006,

Since you seem to be technically minded, if you really want to troubleshoot the problem:
Buy a really cheat motherboard.
Verify that it powers on.
Plug in the memory. Wait to see if it stays good.
Plug in the HDD. Wait to see if it stays good.

By now I think something will have blown the motherboard.
So now you know the probably cause of your problem i.e. the last thing you plugged it.

Hope this helps.

Hi, I am new to the site and am having some issues with my gatewat MT3422, I dont know too much about laptops especially gateways so bare with me.

The external monitor turns from amber to green on the power button but still no display. So my question is does this have an onboard video card? IS there any fixes for this? It has a Nvidia in it the sticker says anyways? Looking for some assistance here on options or how to tell if its the card or the screen? I tried a flashlight in the screen and dont see anything.

Hello, new to the forums..

So I have an issue with my Gateway MT6821 laptop. There are two LED lights on the front of the laptop. It is supposed to be pink while plugged in and charging and then turn blue when fully charged, which it used to do until about a month ago. Now it stays blue when it is charging or fully charged!!!! So I contacted Gateway and they sent me a replacement battery and still same issue. The battery charges and holds a charge, but for some reason the light is not working properly. Please help! this is something little, but really annoying to me..thanks in advance..

I have a Gateway laptop that won't boot up properly. Sometimes it will go to the Windows screen that has the bar at the bottom like it is loading and then it will just restart. But here lately it has been just going to the screen that asks if you want to start in safe mode and all the other choices. But it just locks up and won't go from there. I think that my hard drive is messed up. I just ordered a new hdd. Can I just change the hdd to fix it or is it something else?

Oh, and when I press enter for it to start up normally it has bars at the bottom like to show how far it is going through the process and it just stops and won't go any farther. It does this every time.

I own a Gateway NV laptop Usually it laptop, OS failure Gateway has an error where it has a blank screen upon startup About half the time it works and the other half it doesn t run only the wifi button and power light turns on Yesterday it stopped working whatsoever yet the same lights were on so I plugged it into my Gateway laptop, OS failure TV via HDMI and got an error message on startup which included Media checkup has failed failure to load OS I did drop it yesterday but lightly There was no cosmetic damage at all and it was a light fall but I can t think of another reason for its sudden failure I ve gathered that it could be a broken LED screen a hard drive failure or even a loose cable within the laptop due to dropping it I can provide any other information necessary upon request but I am at a loss here Any information would be greatly appreciated nbsp

A:Gateway laptop, OS failure

When a computer is dropped any number of things could of been damaged.i would take it somewhere to see just how bad and if its worth fixing at all.

now it only happens while running utorrent.

last time i had this error i made an attempt to DL current drivers for everything w/ driver genius pro. once i installed the program and ran it w/ all the new drivers it worked flawlessly for about a week (no BSOD crashes) but then suddenly they started occurring every hour while operating utorrent and certain websites.

im not at that PC right now but ill be sure to post the exact error message along with the model number of the laptop to see if anyone else is experiencing this.
any ideas in the mean time?
im assuming its due to gateway not rushing to add windows 7 support to certain pieces of hardware, allowing pretty much everything i have right now to be work flawlessly only w/ vista.


Its probably utorrent. go into event viewer (type event viewer in search) and see if there are any errors in the app tab relating to the problem
