Question about Gateway Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Internet problem 1)some site i go to tends to hang up then i F% for refresh and it connects to the site right away. 2) i tried to d/l updates for nero 7 using the nero 7 program it connects to the site showing me the updates available then i click on update now and it starts to d/l and update nero 7 then it gets to a certain point of d/l ing it the d/l freezes i had tried it numerous time only to encounter the same thing and sometimes it says connection problem. 3) I am a P2P user on DC when i had installed the program i had no problem with connection but a few days ago when i tried to connect to DC it connected to the hubs im in then 1-2 mins later they all shut down saying *** An established connection was aborted by the software in your host machine. I feel that the MSIE is causing these problems but i am getting no errors. Im also having trouble with the dvd burner not wanting to burn dvd/cd. I have two dvd/cd burners and had no problems with them in the past but now one is showing the max speed is only 4x which should be much greater its a 2006 model by LG. when i bought this computer GM5474 it did not come with any kind of default disk to put everything back the way it was when i bought it. I had tried a system restore but it only went back to nov 1, all the later restore points got deleted. Is there anyway to restore the MSIE back to it orginal state when i purchased this computer? If not, is there a way to restore the entire drive back to the day I purchased the computer? I came across the Gateway recovery system but not sure how that works. If I run that will it erase all my docs, photos, videos, software that I had installed? Do i need to copy the docs, videos, photos, bookmarks, and other items to another drive or burn them onto a dvd?

About the software, by default it should connect directly to the internet but it you are using a specific proxy server then you would have to configure the way it connects to the internet. If you are sure it's direct, then you would have to repair the software by re-installing it.

With the burner, it's possible that the lens is weak. Try cleaning the lens using a lens cleaner. If it persists, try updating the driver. Every burner has a number of read and write times so the more you use it, the weaker it becomes and when it gets to it's limit, then it would not function properly again.

About the system restore, it you are even able to take your system back to the way it was when you purchased it, everything you changed will be lost. If you have a problem, try repairing your operating system.

My belkin n1 vision router hang at least 3 times a week regularly, what wrong with it? I must pull out powercable and plug in again in 5 seconds will work again or sometimes it will automatic restart but...


1.Log into router. Using either 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.1.1 in a browser window that is ( internet Explorer or Firefox)
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off) ( router status window)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses.
5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address. This set up in the "security tab" in the router. using 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 to access through a browser.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.
7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet.
This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.
8. check for firmware update at the manufacturers site for your model router
9. cell phones, cordless phones, digital TV's, can affect the data signal from a router. Also distance from the router can be a factor. If your router is in a basement place the router to a upper floor and center it in the room.

My Sanza Fuze 8gb will not turn on. I charged it completely on my computer late last week and shut it off. Today I tried to turn it on several times. Also tried to press the "on" button for 10-20...


First thing to do is: Try other USB ports on your computer. A USB port on the back of a PC usually has better power output. Try a different cable if there's one available, to rule out if you have a bad cable. Try another computer. If none of the above works: Then-Check and refresh the drivers in Windows, for a Portable Device. 1 - Connect your Sansa player to the PC 2 - Check under Device Manager -> 1. Right-click My Computer, and select Manage. NOTE: The player should show up on the Device Manager's right pane as: 1. USB Mass Storage device (if the player is set to MSC) 2. Portable Device (if the player is set to MTP mode.)
If there is a yellow exclamation point (!) or question mark (?) beside the device, try to refresh the drivers. Then - Refresh the drivers 1. Right-click the entry with the error mark, select Uninstall. 2. On the top menu, click Action then select Scan for hardware changes.
If your BRAND NEW Sansa player is NOT recognized by the computer when plugged in: This may be caused by one of the following: 1. Minimum system requirements were not met. 2. Corrupted drivers. 3. Computer restrictions, Vista or 7 authorizations. 4. Power issue, plug your player into the back of the computer.
Next be sure you are using Windows Media player : Version 10 or 11 Download and install the latest Windows Media Player if it's not installed.
If all this has failed - Refresh the drivers again.
If all that does not work - Manually add the hardware driver. 1. Connect the Sansa player in MTP mode 2. Manually install the device driver through Windows device manager in control panel. Install the Device as a Portable Device.

Can't connect to wireless


Hi, the first thing i would recommend is going to your linksys router and try turning it off for approximately 10 seconds then restoring it. Routers need refreshing at leasy on a monthly basis and tend to lose connection. Step 2: if that does not work try the following. first click start, then go to control panel, then click network and double click network and internet connections. then click on network connections and right click on the network connection you use and click repair option. The repair option will fix your connection most likely.

My computer experience errors, suddenly hangs up, freezes whenever i do video calls..


This may not be with the computer, it could be with your internet provider. If you have a bad or unstable internet connection, then a minor glitch or quick loss of connectivity will cause you to lose the call, even if the glitch is almost unnoticeable. If connected wirelessly, then try a cable and hardwire directly to the net, a wireless glitch could do the same.

Refresh database


I had the "Refresh Database" problem with my C250, it just sat there after turning it on! However, the GOOD NEWS is, I corrected it! First I connected it to my PC, then FORMATTED the unit. This gave me an empty player that at least would turn on. Then I downloaded the Sansa "Updater" from the SanDisk website. After setting up the updater software, I connected the C250. It automatically checked for any new firmware, and loaded it into the player. After that I restarted the C250 and it again came up OK without any music loaded. The last thing I did was to load only 1.8 GB worth of music files. My take on the problem is that if you overload the memory, or interupt a file while loading, then the "datbase" function never gets done. I've had mine running for about a week now without problems! Hope it works for you too! <Good Luck> David
