Gateway Model GT5228

My gatewaywas crashing ever once and awhile. The LCD display would break up like glass schattering then it would go dead.

I would have to unplug the power cord for about a minute and it would boot up.

Finally it just would recover. It dead - it powers up but not video, the fans run in the high mode but I don't even get the gateway logo.

ANy suggestions?

It appears that you overheated your video card quite a few times. This can be caused by poor ventilation, a bad heatsink or just a bad video card. In any case, your solution is to replace the video card with a new unit.

Sd card wont show up on my gateway gt5228


You are missing the drivers for the card reader. They usually come with the chipset driver installation. I looked up your driver downloads on gateway support and it says there is also a driver in the "others" section caller "motherboard driver"

So, what you want to do is go to there site at the link below and download the "chipset" driver and the "motherboard" driver and install them. that should fix your problem.

Installed new hard drive (old one crashed) no sound now


You need another sound system. If it's xp it is probably ac 97. However; go to windows update, make sure you have all of the updates. Then go to the control panel, device manager and look for a yellow question mark or a yellow exclamation mark, if there, right click and click update driver or click uninstall from the system, restart the computer and windows will look for the drivers, just follow on screen directions.

How can I find out what kind of network card is in my GT5228?


Integrated 10/100 Network.
Unless you put a card in yourself, that's what came with your computer.
