I have the same computer and I have kept my old user manual. I looked in the book and there are several phone numbers which contact Gateway technical support. A general number is (USA) 1-800-846-2118. This is an automated menu system, and you can only use your telephone keypad. There is a fax on demand menu of catalogs which contains documents on common problems. If you can find the document you need, it will be faxed to you. That number is 800-846-4526.
Gateway also has a tech support line which you can call if you have a problem which doesn't requrie a tutorial-based solution. That number is 800-846-2301. If all else fails, you can call Gateway for fee-based software assistance (note the word SOFTWARE). This is the call of last resort, it's expensive, but here it is, just in case: 800-229-1103 (billed to your credit card by the minute).

Good luck! If you are Canadian, there are different numbers. The manual that came with your computer is available on CD if you do a simple search, but (as you probably know), it doesn't go into much detail. Gateway does that for a reason--they make money off of repairs, and it's too easy to make a mistake if you repair a computer yourself. Helpful hint--if/when you DO repair ANYTHING (not just computers), take a quick digital photograph (including a close-up) of each and every step. That way, you'll have a record of what you did that is visual; it doesn't hurt to write down what steps you took, either. Between the written and the visual, you'll have a better chance of fixing the problem, and then returning the computer to the state from which you started. Viva digital cameras!!

How much oil does a ktm 450 exc hold

Thank you for contacting FixYa with your inquiry.
The suggested amount is 1.2 L.

You can download the owners/service manual from this site.
Just a note:
I have the same bike and 1.2l of oil will NOT register in the sight glass. I can't even see it in the bottom of the glass. SO IGNORE THE GLASS IF THIS HAPPENS AND DO NOT KEEP ADDING OIL TILL YOU SEE IT IN THE SIGHTGLASS. Add 1.2 liter if you are changing the filters, and add 1L if you are keeping the old filters in there.
Let us know if we can be of further service.
Kind regards,

Our HP LaserJet 1000 is suddenly making a loud grinding type of noise. Not sure what to look for. Thanks :-)

LJ 1000 is about 10 yrs old now so it's bound to have a problem. Sounds like possible a gear grinding although the 1000 has been one of the best small printers HP has made. First to check is maybe a stuck drum in the toner by replacing it, even with an old empty one. If the grinding continues its deeper into the machine, may be the gear that drives the fuser in back . You will need the service manual to tear it down to look and see. Go to, scroll down the page looking for a link to service manuals on the left navigation bar. Once you get to that select HP then look in the Laserjet section for the 1000 service manual. Download it and you'll have it to do the disassembly and reassembly correctly. If you don't have the talents to work on it you may contact some nearby shops and see which might be reputable and will do the troubleshooting for a minimum just in case the parts needed will be too expensive.

Gateway 450 ROG screen does not show or freezes

Hi, The only easy check I can suggest is on the memory. Flip your notebook so that the bottom is facing up. Locate a small panel (with 1 or 2 screws) roughly 3X3in. Inside would be 1 or 2 memory strips held in place by 2 retaining clips, one on each side. Moving the clips slightly away from the memory would free the memory strip and partially spring up. It can now be easily removed. With a pencil eraser, clean/rub on the little gold contacts at the bottom. The slot where they mate with their holder could also be cleaned with an old toothbrush. If the above does not correct the errors, then perhaps you are better off seeking the services of a qualified professional since the unit may have to be opened up and diagnosis performed on its various components. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

What kind of an USB cable does the Optio 450 use?

You should get the original Pentax cable- the Pentax I-USB7 USB Cable for the Optio WPi, WP & S55 Digital Cameras. It's compatible with the 450 as well.
