Question about Gateway 450ROG Notebook

1 Answer

My Gateway 450ROG laptop/notebook has problems on start-up. Whenever you turn it on, the fan starts up, then the three lights blink and there is a tone heard immediately after that. But there is nothing loading on the screen, and the fan keeps running. Have tried everything from disconnecting the battery to allowing some time for cooling down and then re-starting the laptop. Problem still persists. Need help.

    I Have the same problem! The screen started to get a little fuzzy and then when I allowed some down time, it just went blank with the fan. I don't think it is a OS problem because i was running PClinuxOs and was running it separately with the live CD and still had the same problems, it even occured (the screen fuzzyness) during BIOS startup.

    Do the lights blink together? If so how many times do they blink? Typically 1 blink on a gateway is normal, after the beep do you notice the hard drive light blinking or do all the lights continue to blink?

Try hooking the Laptop to an external monitor like from your desktop pc,,you can see the connection on the back of the laptop,,When you do this, and you can see Windows on the Desktop monitor,,then this would indicate that your Back light on your Laptop screen may have burnt out .

Can't access gateway 450rog wireless! Is there a toggle? Do I need to install a driver?


Yes, the wireless adapter needs a driver, but unless you deleted it, that is not the problem
The wireless function can be turned on and off by a Fn and special function key combo. Some laptops even have a switch on the front of the palm rest that turns the wireless on.
Once the wireless function has been turned on, you will be able to see networks in the area.

Gateway 450ROG, will not start. Red DVD/CD ROM


I have the very same problem, the Drive light turns red, the screen is "black" and the battery charging light indicator on the front is off. No differance if I'm traying to power up on battery or AC-adapter.

Before this problem appeared I had problems where the laptop was powering off, with no warning, and I had to restart it. This happened several times and was going on for about a week before it died totally. Can it be the CMOS battery on the mother board? Anyone having clue what the problem could be?

Wireless


1) A working WiFi adapter, USB or PCMCIA.
2) A Wireless signal to connect to.

Windows already has built in WiFi software.

Gateway 450rog does not power on


Sounds like a voltage regulator. Have the system diagnosed at a repair shop. Sorry I know this isn't what you wanted to hear, but is probably the correct answer.

Gateway 450ROG Heating Up, Fan Constantly On, Screen Distortions


Ursula56,
If you paid them to fix it and they didn't, complain to the manager. Bring the fan to his attention. Software wont cause that kind if problem, unless its the video driver, which in your case it doesnt mess up when you first start it up, so thats not it. You will at least get your money back. You are right about the heat it will cause a lot of problems, because its size.
Please let me know how you make out. I hate seeing people get screwed.
