Question about Gateway 450ROG Notebook

Laptop wont boot up

I tried setting my laptop up on a home network (which I've never done before) but when it said everything was done and it needed to be reset before the new settings would take effect I pressed OK. It went to re-boot and then just went to a black screen with the cursor at the top left and I cant get it to do anything else. I can get to bios screen but thats about it. I recently had to re-install Windows Xp on it.

Thanks Ryan

How to set my Compaq cq50 notebook pc back to factory settings insydeh20 setup utility rev. 3.5


Ok don't worry it is easy. Just download an ISO copy of the windows you had previously. Copy it on an USB using Rufus. Yes all of this must be done on an another computer. Your computer is 64 bit. Insert the USB on your laptop. Boot it up and press esc. Select boot up from an another device or boot options and select the usb. Then the windows setup will begin. This might erase everything

Why is Windows 7 home not starting?


Try to start in safe mode by tapping f8 on your keyboard while its booting. Choose safe mode with networking. If it boots in SM OK then download and run Malwarebytes once the scan is done and you deleted everything try again to boot normal. If that does not work but you can get to the safe mode screen try the option that says last known good configuration

Toshiba Satellite C675D-S7109 It won't boot it just keeps going to a black screen that say a lot like PXE-MOF: Exiting PXE: ROM


It seems that the computer is set to boot from network, so, when the computer starts, just enter the BIOS and select the Boot options, then disable Other Boot Options and make sure that on the Boot list, Hard Drive is the first. When you're done save settings and quit, then everything should be fine.

WILL NOT CONNECT TO LINSYS HOME ROUTER BUT WILL CONNECT TO WORK NETWORK


What do you mean it won't allow you to put in the home network passcode? When you click connect to your home network, does the password request come up for you to put it in? If not, you've got your settings wrong on the laptop

There are some configurations that allow you to put in the password and then are are some that allow you to use a pin. I bet you've got your connection in the laptop configured wrong.

NV55C Gateway Lap Top cannot connect to wireless router


Does your WiFi work on the laptop work in another place... Starbucks for example? If so, then there is a software security issue with the router, you will need to call the ISP for adjust the settings. If you PC doesn't work with wifi at Starbucks then you have a software issue with your laptop. Go to MY Computer, Hardware/Devices and look for any yellow marks. There will probably be one where the wifi is located. (Expand all the devices by clicking on the plus "+ signs. Find the wifi modem, there are many mfrs; Broadcom and Atheros are two ones. Go into the submenus and driver update too and write everything down you find. The most important things are the description, model number, software version and version date. Navigate to the hardware mfrs site and download and install the newest drivers for the wifi modem. Re-boot and try again to establish a connection.

Windows vista toshiba satellite A 135 S4667 is very slow. I'm wireless and added 2 gb so now have 4gb but running slower than ever. Especially when I'm on Pogo site. My sound is also not synced...


Are you noticing it to be very slow online or just in general use? If it's just slow online then it could be your internet connection. If it's generally slow then I suggest a disk defrag, disk clean-up and a virus scan.

I have recently written several tips that can help you speed things up:

More than likely if you haven't downloaded the correct drivers, maybe?

Hope that helps.
