I have a gateway nv79u and it wont stay on for more than 30 mins. It keeps shutting off with error code 41 kernal-power.


Hi Michael,

Kernel Power - Error Code 41 often times caused by conflicting drivers. If you are trying to play a game or watching videos then the computer suddenly turns off, you must first check the following:

1. Open Device Manager (click Start > type Device Manager) and go to Sound, Video, and Game Controllers and see you have two audio drivers installed and disable one at a time and see if it fixes the issue.

2. Boot into Safe mode (press F8 continuously upon boot up) and see if the computer still shuts down there. (If it doesn't try disabling start-up items using this guide

3. If you're pop-up error messages like "System services cannot be started" upon boot-up, you're operating system is corrupted and must be restored to default settings. (you need to press F11 upon boot up - remember to backup your important files)

3. If Step 2 above is true, check if the computer is overheating. If it does, the computer needs to be serviced. Contact gateway support at 1-800-846-2000.


Cheers.

My laptop keeps turning itself off and on when I


Your computer may not be properly cooled, if it gets to hot it will shut off. One of the safety feature to make sure your computer does not melt.
Please check your temps with a desktop utility or through your bios.
To see the error message of your computer Right click on “My Computer”>Click “Advance” Tab”>Click on “Start-up and Recovery” and make sure the box that says “Automatically reboot” is unchecked.
Then you should be able to see what the error message is, write it down and google it.
This will give you a better idea on why your computer is shutting off.

Fan doesn't shut off ever


I just did a BIOS update on my sisters computer presario f700 and noticed that the update said it would fix some problem with the fan. The update is on Compaq's website under software and drivers. Maybe that would help.

My computer starts to load windows, then loses all power,


Does the same thing happen when you try to load the BIOS. (press keep pressing F2 when you turn on the computer). If it happens while the computer is in the BIOS window then its your power supply that is fried.

It does sound like the power supply is fried though. In which case the laptop will need to be taken in for service.

Hi,
it depends upon what kind of error s you get, when it is shutting down
you should contact gateway for the OS restoration CD if it came preinstalled, but it will depend upon their policy for shipping lost media.

further Queries are welcome
