If I have my laptop on for more than a few minutes, the keyboard stops allowing me to type. Why?


Freezes after a few minutes of running normally are quite often heat-related.  You could try cleaning the fans and making sure that air is getting to the warm bits of your computer.  If you're feeling brave, you could unscrew some of the access panels and clean out the dust with a (clean and unused!) paintbrush, making sure that none of the bristles fall out into your computer.

Worth trying, anyway.

Gateway freeze randomly it just screen freeze


If you can, download Combofix, Vundofix, smitfraudfix, and malewarebytes.

Boot the computer in Safemode, and then run each program, one at a time of course.

If this doesn't fix the problem, then it will at least verify that it's not a virus related issue.

Keeps freezing


Sounds like motherboard problems, but not 100% pointing to that. If you have the knowledge to do so - run a linux boot cd (can be found on a lot of PC magazine DVDs) and see if it crashes with that as well.

Other things to check are the heat your laptop is outputting, check for any burning smells from where the airflow comes out of the laptop, check that your power cable for the laptop is not faulty.

This is a pretty indefined problem as there are many factors that could cause this. Hope I helped.

My gateway mx6920 keeps freezing if I let it sit for more then 15-20 minutes. If I start it in safe mode it does not do it. does anyone have any ideas?


does your screen saver go in after 15-20 minutes ? because if so then you might try disable it and check if it freezes. does it also freeze when you are using it or when its idle ?

Gateway 460 freezes or will not come on.


It's probably overheating that's why when you first turn it on it works fine up until a certain point. Does it feel hot on the bottom? Are the fans spinning?

Gateway laptop 450ROG freezes up after it gets hot & screen frzs


This definitely sounds like a heat problem. The system fan should cool it, but there may be a lot of dirt in the heat sink or along the path that the fan blows air. The first thing I would try is to get a can of canned air and blow it into all the vents under and on the side of the computer. If it is dusty, keep your face away.

You didn't say, but if you let the system cool down for a while (maybe 15 minutes or so) and start it up again and the same thing happens, it['s definitely a heat issue.

Fails to boot


You might try a Hirens Boot CD, un-zip the files, create a bootable cd from the .ISO file and boot your troubled system, select virus scan on boot.
