You plug the wireless transceiver (small usb dongle) into the pc and it will auto connect to the keyboard as long as the keyboard has working batteries installed and is switched on (if it has a power button)

I think you need only plug the modem into the router, then plug other devices into the router, or hook up through wifi..

They may be limiting your bandwidth. I think it's called throttling back.. you might call them and ask about the problem.

contact the administration of the patient gateway system direct on the phone and have them talk you through the problem
I suspect that it could be as simple as not including gender or address( MR,MRS, etc)so the computer cannot distinguish that there is a different application

Your Gateway either has corrupt drivers or has forgotten your WiFi.
Go into your device manager and remove the WiFi device. Then have your computer search for any hardware changes. It will find your wifi device and reload drivers. If this does not work, you have a bad wifi card.

Try this:

Start the computer. As soon as the "Starting Windows" screen comes up (not the Gateway/eMachines screen), hold down the Power Button to shut off the computer. This might force the computer to go in to Windows recovery mode when you restart. Now, turn on the computer, and it should go to a "Windows Diagnostics and Recovery" page. Choose Diagnose the Problem or whatever it says, follow the instructions.

Good luck.

There is no specific slot for the C disk, the C disk is your primary disk where you put your OS installtion, if you have a second disk the name of that one will be D.

Connect the hdmi (in) to the TV and the computer hdmi. Go into the sound settings (control panel or settings in Windows... preferences on a Mac) and choose the hdmi as the playback device. Also check the volumes on your TV and computer. If you said what OS and what version of that OS you were using, I could be more specific.

This is found I think in its Bios which is pressing whatever key gets you in there like F2 or Delete etc just after powering it on but before system boot up and would be under security tab.
Though this would require knowledge of its original password to remove and replace it.
The only way I have done it is a bit "rough" it involves the removal of the back up battery and not switching on for (or leaving it with any power at all) for say 24 hours or longer (depends how resiliant it is) this will cause the Bios data to "forget its settings". You can of course write down settings before you do this but there is a default entry at the last settings to restore some back to a working normal.

It should also forget passwords stored, when you power it up after battery removal and powered it down and it then wakes up in a "mood" like saying it needs to be reset by you, power off and refit the back up battery
power on and enter its Bios to reset what is needed like the clock etc which will have gone back to 00:00 plus a date which will tell you how old its Bios basic program dates from out of interest. Any settings you do will be remembered for next time.
How to Reset Your BIOS

Start with this to see whats needed look into other versions as one may be nearer yours. Read up on it before you start so you get an idea of things to do but the "default settings selection" will get you out of trouble if a panic sets in.

Hope this helps.........

Have you tried going to their website and checking the tolls as they have all this information available.

Hey man ~ been there, done that... Here is what I recommend:

From a DIFFERENT WORKING system find (and download) ALL of your drivers to a TEMP folder. Also fetch your favorite tools, Chrome and Firefox installers (small programs (and such))... Copy ALL of that to a new CD! BE SURE you include the latest NETWORK and WiFi Drivers you can find!

*** This is almost MANDATORY because there are SO many mfgs/models/and software (98-XP-Win7 etc etc) that we can't hope that WINDOWS will have ALL of them on your Windows Install disk!! ***

You will need a BOOKABLE CD Version of Windows. The bummer IS ~ sometimes MS DEMANDS that a older version of Windows is installed FIRST! NO fun... Find another "standalone" Windows installer. I am fairly sure YOU need a 64-Bit version!? Be sure you have the correct one!

Next TOTALLY REFORMAT your Laptop Drive and DO NOT be tempted to use the "Quick Format"! The SLOWER method CHECKS EACH SECTOR for quality as it Formats and IF any errors are found... they are marked BAD and formatting occurs around them!

NOW proceed to install Windows (7 is MY FAVORITE WORKHORSE). Use your DRIVER CD to satisfy/install missing drivers!

IF you have not experienced the unhappy/frustrating feelings of WINDOWS 10 ~ trust me ~ you won't have fun with it because it's another MS "PIG" like Millennium, VISTA, 8, 8.1 and SO many others! (By the way ~ what happened to Windows 9)?

Before EVERYTHING is back just as you like and UPDATED... YOU have a serious choice...

Your System was provided with a 500GB Drive... You can buy a NEW drive for VERY reasonable money! A NEW 500GB is $19.99 on eBay is VERY cheap insurance!
272981026722 A USA Seller.

Now CLONE your original drive to your NEW drive and SET THE ORIGINAL Laptop drive aside as your "VAULT"! Another day when things go bad, you can ALWAYS get back to where you are today!

ALSO IF you buy a 500GB you can use your ORIGINAL Drive a BACKUP DRIVE!

***Use CAUTION here! IF your ORIGINAL Drive is infected ~ your BACKUP DRIVE is now infected too! ***
