Earlier This Morning, I Went To Do My Daily Tasks On My Gateway NV55C Notebook.(email, facebook, etc.) I Noticed That My Computer Was Lagging And Windows Explorer Kept Going 'Unresponsive'. After Attempting To Close My Browser, I Had A BSOD And The Only Thing I Can Recall Seeing Was ' Kernel, And Data Dump With A Number That Was Rising At The Bottom Of The Screen After The Number Reached Like 20 Or Something, My Laptop Automatically Shut Down And Now Whenever I Try To Start It Up, It Shows Me The Defualt 'Gateway' Screen And It Tells Me To Press F2 To Enter Setup But It Keeps Turning Off And Going Back To The 'Gateway' Startup Screen. Ive Tried Pressing F2 And F8 But I Get Nowhere Before It Just Shuts Down And Starts Up Again I Also Attempted Removing The Hard Disk And Inserting It Again....NOTHING Ive Tried Inserting Another Hard Disk Just To See How Far I Could Get....NOTHING Ive Even Tried The Windows 7 Installation Disk So I Could Rewrite The OS....NOTHING! I Honestly Dont Know How To Fix This If I Cant Even Get A Menu To Pop Up PLEASE HELP!

After much time and frustration you will end up reloading the operating system, the reason is it is corrupted, why this happens is not always the same, but the fresh copy of the operating system is the cure. You will need the recovery disks do this, you were either given them with the system or you were prompted to make them when the computer was new. If you don't have the recovery disk set then call the parts dept of the computer maker for ordering instructions, they run about $25

Gateway nv55c notebook keyboard not functional! How can it be fixed ?

Try plugging in an external USB keyboard. At least that should help you for the moment. It could be something went wrong internally with the keyboard, and your only option is to have it replaced. It could be software, but i doubt it.

Will my Gateway NV55C play Sims 3

If your laptop will play the demo, it should play the full game. Just be aware that patches and updates to the game can affect performance so if your running the game on the lowest settings, it isn't advisable to get it.
Looking at the graphics device in the NV55C it should run the game with no problems though.

Hope this helps

NV55C Gateway Lap Top cannot connect to wireless router

Does your WiFi work on the laptop work in another place... Starbucks for example? If so, then there is a software security issue with the router, you will need to call the ISP for adjust the settings. If you PC doesn't work with wifi at Starbucks then you have a software issue with your laptop. Go to MY Computer, Hardware/Devices and look for any yellow marks. There will probably be one where the wifi is located. (Expand all the devices by clicking on the plus "+ signs. Find the wifi modem, there are many mfrs; Broadcom and Atheros are two ones. Go into the submenus and driver update too and write everything down you find. The most important things are the description, model number, software version and version date. Navigate to the hardware mfrs site and download and install the newest drivers for the wifi modem. Re-boot and try again to establish a connection.
