I am havin the same problem at the company i work at. The problem with our machines has to do with the mother boards. But you might want ot check the power supply and make sure it is rated high enough to run your system. Next check/blow out your CPU cooler, and go into bios and see if it is set up to shut off at a certain temp.

Screen says to reboot, have no reboot device,unable to doanything to this computer, only 2 years old.have called my internet co.andmicrosoft. they tell me computer is atfault. please help


Gateway is responsible for any hardware issues with your computer. Neither the internet service provider nor the operating system manufacturer has anything to do with the hardware. Your Gateway has a power on button on its case. You may have to hold the button in for several seconds to shut it down but as you have not accessed the OS, that won't harm the hard drive. Once it's shut down, repress the power button to turn it back on and hopefully it will power up completely to the Windows or Linux OS you are using.

I have a refurbished Gateway T-1625 notebook that up until now has worked fine. However, a few days ago the wireless capability just stopped working. Now, when I try to connect via wireless, it says there...


If your laptop is not "on range" this problably respond to:

1) Interference problem or bad signal.
2) Bad hardware devices (cards, routers etc)

Check your wireless router (turn it off in a while and see what happen)
Check your wireless card adaptor in your computer (My PC >> right click Properties >> Hardware >> Device Manager >> Network)

Let me know how it is going!

You may have a voltage problem, but it seems more like you have your power-save settings saved wrong. Check those. You may also want to check your device manager to make sure things are malfunctioning causing your shutdowns.

Gateway gt5648e desktop power


Do you know what your system is having the Processor error if you on the system the keyboard flickers and later go away but the fan also runs for seconds and later went off then what you have to do is to detached all components attached to your system then only the system unit alone .
Use a good power connector cable and a good constructed socket then put it on and wait and hear the sounds it brings and the signals or error is going show then if it comes on and go off remove the fan and replace with new one if the problem persist then change the processor with new one and then your system should be back to life and if anything happened then post your difficulties so i can help you. ok

rate this solution.
