GT5473E MOTHERBOARD CONFIGURATION


Try the manufacturer of the board's website.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Gateway Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Look for specifications on the board.


Gateway is probably not the manufacturer of the board but they might have some info on it. If not, try the board's manufacturer.

Easiest way to check is to change the cable and run your computer again! If you have same problem occures it does not mean that your hard drive is wrong.Just intert the boot CD and try to repair it if that fails or crashes or simply restart your computer then you have problem with hard drive!

Here's more info to my problem: Gateway laptop is 4 years old. Now getting message that says "System Fan Error!! !!Please turn off system and checkyour system fan!!" Computer was purchased...


Your CPU fan has failed! your heatsink overheats quickly and then shuts down to protect itself from burning up. Your motherboard is Not the problem, the fan is. This fan can be replaced by any compotent laptop technician. Make sure the tech has access to Gateway or has a source that supplys Gateway parts, as the part must be made for Gateway laptops and your model exactly! 90% of this type of problem can be repaired! Don't let non-techs at Best Buy or any other dept. store tell you your PC is "No Good". Take the time like your doing and do some research the problem before giving your hard earned cash to a 16 year old "Technician/salesman/commision/bonus" person.
If the Harddrive is undamaged and it can be mounted yes, your stuff can be saved to DVD or such. Be prepared though, this type of service can be costly so ask around and get quotes.

If you are not a technician, please do not attempt to service yourselves. Take your laptop to the service center.
