Question about NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router

Need help before buying laptop with 64-bit operating system

I am planning on buying a Gateway T-6836 laptop from BestBuy.com which has the 64-bit Windows Vista Home Premium operating system. I wanted to know if my router, NetGear WGR614, will support 64-bit operating systems. I couldn't find anything on Microsoft's website because it said "Status Unknown" but maybe if there's someone out there who has this router and a 64-bit operating system, they could help. Thanks to everyone who helps me.

The router protocols (on air and ethernet connection) are independant of the operating system. Vista 64 bit will work with the router.

Do I need to purchase the service plan/pak from Gateway in order to buy a recovery disk


Wow, why not just make sure you have access to an Operating System Disc that is the same as your operating system. Then periodically copy your My Documents folder to a USB Flash Drive or to an external drive for backup purposes. Most times those Recovery Discs don't work. The only good recovery that works most times is when the manufacturer burns the partition on the hard drive.

How do I change my laptop from 32-bit to 64-bit?


You have to check whether your CPU (Processor) support 64 bit before you can install any windows 64bit OS(Operating Systyem).

Check with the manufacturer Site first, ie if you Laptop support the 64 bit OS. Then download the any 64 bit drivers needed for the devices for your laptop before you begin your 64 bit OS installation.

If your laptop do support the 64 bit OS, best is to do a fresh installation.

Hope it helps.

Can I upgrade to 64 bit OS, and install over 4GB of RAM?


http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/dlcenter.asp

Go to that page and type in your serial number. You need to look and see if there is any drivers for a 64 bit OS. If there is then you know you can install a 64 bit system and get the drivers installed.

If you don't see a 64 bit system for drivers then that means one by one you'll need to manually search thru google for the drivers you have now and see if you can find all of them for any 64 bit system you want to install.

If you can find them then you can still install a 64 bit system.

Do you get any error messages? Try Downloading the updated drivers and install them. Make sure you download the drivers for 64-bit vista OS. Now if it still doesnt work let me know.

Your router doesn't care about your OS, all it's dealing with is networking packets and protocols ant for that Vista 64bit is acting like anything else, there's no such thing on the brand new laptop market what won't work with a router via cable or wireless.
Long story short I can tell you that it will work and if there'll be a problem it wont'be 64-bit vista itself more likely the wireless password if you don't know it. Buy that laptop if you like how it looks like and what it can do for you.

Invalid Partition Table


now a day, no installation CD or DVD come with any of the new laptop anymore. you need to make a backup copy of the operating system when you first fired it up. if yu did. you still can make a backup from programs>accessories>backup.
but since the laptop is DOA. look for your receipt, the laptop should have one year warranty from best-buy. if not it should be have the warrant from DELL.
since you don't have the DVD. you can request one from DELL.

Vista...is it a 32 bit version or 64 bit.


Hi.
I dont' work for bestbuy, so i can't tell what the hardware inside this pc is, only looking inside the pc or the hardware manuals a technician can work.
However, to know what kind of windows is installed, you don't need to be an expert, Windows XP 32 bits only shows the logo( WINDOWS XP ), unlike Windows XP 64 bits, this appears as:
( WINDOWS XP X64 ) when windows is starting.
Also you can go to START - CONTROL PANEL - double click on SYSTEM, there you will see some of your system specs.

About the Graphics card, the most qualified to tell you that is Nvidea Manufacturer itself:
See for yourself.

Hope this help you.
Good luck.

Gateway P6860fx Shutdown


for what its worth I have the same laptop..bought it from best buy as you did.I play a lot of 3d games..I play Crysis for hours at a time as well as F.E.A.R. and have never had a shut down problem.I would suggest taking it back to best buy.The only thing I have found to be a problem with this laptop is that its a 64 bit operating system.I have Vista 32 bit on my other computer and have never had a problem..the 64 bit has given me driver problems on a few programs that I use to use.I'm actually thinking of doing a fresh install and put in vista 32 bit.Haven't decided yet..still searching for more info on the 2 systems.
Anyway..I'd take it back.
PS..the fan is working isn't it?
