Hi E-Davies, Sounds like your neighbors hacked into your computer, thats what hackers do you know? and if you got sensitive info on your computer, they know that too. Thats how people get their Identity stole. A good Spyware and Anti-Virus Software will take care of that for you. Good Luck.

Gateway MT6840 unexpectedly shut down and wouldn't


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

When I turn on my computer it says "please do not power off or unplug your machine.Installing update 1 of 1" and it took for ever.


When you shut down the computer you will get this message when it has downloaded an update and depending upon the size of the update, this can take a long time to shut down. Just let it run and when the computer has finished the update it will shut down and switch off.

When I put the computer to "sleep" it decides to come back on by itself. This happens frequently, but not all the time. What could be causing it to do this? Also, if I shut the computer down,...


Sleep on Vista is a combination of Standby and Hibernate. First it will go into Standby and then later if a laptop it will go into Hibernate. Any movement of mouse or keyboard may cause it to wake up.
Some computers will wake on Lan. If you have ethernet connected this may be the cause. You can turn this off by using Device Manager - Hardware - Select ethernet adapter - driver - Advanced - look for Wake on Lan and Pattern Matching and disable this.
ALso check your BIOS settings and disable all Wake on XXX settings.

On shutting down my laptop it gave the message, "installing 1 of 1" do not turn off your computer. It did not turn off all night. I turned it off by using the on/off button then shut it down...


When you start your laptop, press F8. You will get a menu (Normal boot, Reboot...). Choose Last good known configuration (something like that).

Signing out problem


To turn off, hold down power button (may take "long" time--6-8seconds). It WILL shut down.

If recurring problem, check setup settings for Power switch and lid options--turn off, go into standby, etc.
