After a few minutes of being on my tv freezes


I'm not a T.v. expert but could it be over heating. Is the ventilation covered or filled with dust? Try unplugging it and take an air can to the vents to blow out any dust it's collected over time.

I have a gateway gx7022e windows xp computer. When i try to boot it up the white letters pop up then the screen goes to the gateway screen and freezes. Then my num lock comes on but my keyboard wont work....


At power on / power up, look for the key during the bootup (black screen with white text), that allows you to enter SETUP. If none designated such as F1, F2 F10 etc, then quickly click the delete button a few times and that may get you into setup. You may have to turn off the computer if you miss that window of time if it rfequires pressing the delete button a few times. Keep an eye out for the Enter Setup key though. To turn off the computer press and hold the power button 'till is shuts down and resart the process until you get to the setup screen in bios. In setup bios environment, look for set factory defaults and then save and restart. That may solve the issue of the lockup.

I locked myself out of gateway laptop-the HDD passcode. how to unlock forgotten code


There are two ways to do this. First you can call Gateway support and they can provide you with a master passcode for your system. Second option is to open up your laptop and remove the CMOS battery for a few minutes and plug it back in to reset the passcode. To be sure you can short the two pins that connect it to the motherboard with a paperclip.

I have a GT5662 and it has a problem everytime i install an os or it boots it will freeze when fully booted or a few minutes into it. I don't know what's wrong. I need help


SOunds like an overheating issue or the power supply isnt sufficient. Have you done any upgrades to it lately?
Try dusting out the case and adding an extra fan or two if your computer case can oblige.

Gateway E-4600 freezes even in bios setup, have upgraded power supply, new memory, reinstall system, swapped hard drives, happens after about am hour , but on hard reboot it freezes in a minute or two....


If your system freezes in the BIOS, then the issue is almost certainly the motherboard, which it sounds like you haven't replaced yet.
Good luck. Hope this helps! If so, please give a rating!

Laptop locks up constantly, even during boot from HDD or CD.


Don't upgrade the OS. Try upgrading your RAM. This should the computer to process more and therefore stop it freezing as much. Also don;t run too many programs at once. If you are looking to keep a laptop for the furture invest in a new one. go to http://www.crucial.com/ fo RAM.

My computer is turning on and off continually


download memtest and burn the iso to a cd and boot from it to test your ram, it usually only takes a few minutes to see if your ram is bad or not, otherwise ive had computers with bad system boards (blown capacitors) that reboot themselves, and also computers that are overheating reboot themselves, check to make sure all air vents aren't blocked and that all of your case fans run well
