My 3 year old HP Pavilion DV6605US keeps rebooting with a blank screen every few seconds. What should I look for in order to correct the situation? Shield509


Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

one faulty lead will cause a computer to fail to detect a hard drive,continously reboot, shut down a computer
hope this helps

What is the correct battery for the BIOS memory for a Gateway model 4025GZ notebook ?


http://cgi.ebay.com/GENUINE-ACER-250-REAL-TIME-CLOCK-RTC-CMOS-BATTERY-/250619795738?pt=Laptop_Batteries&hash=item3a5a1a991a

Method.

When your Gateway computer is switched off, it still keeps track of various system information such as the date and time, thanks to a small battery that never powers off. The size and thickness of a dime, the CMOS battery can run out and need to be replaced. You can swap out a dead CMOS battery with a new one by removing the Gateway computer's side access panel.

Difficulty: Moderate
Instructions Things You'll Need:

  • Phillips-head screwdriver

  • CMOS battery replacement

  1. 1

    Shut down the computer. Remove the power cable from the back of the computer case. Disconnect the cables for the monitor, mouse, keyboard, and printer.

  2. 2

    Set the computer case over on its side. Use the Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the two case screws at the far left end of the case.

  3. 3

    Slide the side access panel to the left and remove it from the computer case. Find the CMOS battery port, which will be located to the lower left of the processor in most Gateway computer models.

  4. 4

    Lift up the plastic clip holding the CMOS battery in place. Slide a fingernail under one side of the battery and lift it off the motherboard port.

  5. 5

    Check the orientation of the new battery and compare it to the CMOS motherboard port. Push the new battery into place in the same direction that the old battery was facing. Push down the plastic clip.

  6. 6

    Set the side access panel back onto the Gateway computer case and reattach the case screws. Plug in the Gateway computer and power it on.

M-series gateway (m1629) press start button, nothing


Taken apart, looking for abnormal solder etc checked powers switches decided that this unit was acting like it may have shut down due to excessive heat issue. pulled battery on board, tested ok, re-installed everything and found that this unit now is active. Conclusion: I suspect the bios shut this unit down, hard reset correct this issue.

Gt5520 video card


Is this a PCI-E card? I will work on the assumption that it is. Unless you are running two video cards in SLI remove the old card, they make great paper weights. Be sure to only add/remove hardware while the machine is turned off.

Display problem


A fuzzy display is not likely to by caused by programs on your computer. Is this an LCD flat panel monitor or a regular CRT monitor?? If it's a CRT, the problem could be with the high-voltage power supply, which would need to be diagnosed by an experienced computer1.gif or electronics technician.

Check to see if there is a small focus knob on the back. If so try turning it back and forth three or four times to "clean" it....then adjust for correct focus.

Symptoms like this can also be caused by accumulated dust inside the monitor.
