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.

Gateway MT6840 unexpectedly shut down and wouldn't


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

You can turn on your laptop first and then put the disk in the driver. It seems your laptop is set to start from the disk, and if you do as I said above it should not effect it

Good day. I have a Gateway m-1625 (reconditioned). About 5 months ago it started to give problems when booting up. When powered on the hard drive would be engaged & then it would shut off. After...


check the BIOS version, if there is an update for it on the gateway site apply it. a checksum error in CMOS BIOS cannot be overcome and you will always have to deal with this issue if no bios updates are available. There is a slim chance that you can revert back to an earlier version.

Gateway m-1625 battery won't hold any charge? Laptop/battery less than 2 years old... Thanks


Laptop batteries have a lifetime defined in charge cycles. The unfortunate thing is that running a battery down to 80% is the same as using it down to 10% as far as a charge cycle is concerned. The average battery life is in the neighborhood of 300-400 cycles. In short, time for a new battery. You may be able to wring some more life out of this one, though: try letting your laptop drain the battery COMPLETELY by leaving it on until it goes dead, then recharging fully.

I spilled a small amount of beer on my gateway m-1625 laptop and now everything seems to be working except the screen so i am trying to take it apart. i have taken most of the screws out but it still wont...


If your have the time, Hose down the pc with windex, through the leyboard, and any other openings that are available. Set the unit aside for at least three days in a warm area. This will dissolve any beer residue and allow the windex to totally evaporate. Try to run the unit after you are fully sure that all of the windex has evoparated.

You should be good to go unless you have burned out the video processor. If the screen still doesn't work, you can attach an external monitor to test it. If it works, you haven't burned up the processor, but you most likely have ruined the screen circuity.

If that is the case, then good luck. Go online and goole Gateway Notebook Repair. You'll have quite a few choices to select from.

Gateway t 1625 laptop not booting


If u can, try to reformat it, reason i say this simple solution is because u already had the laptop looked at professionally, and due to you're laptop being stuck at the windows screen, i see this happen on HDD swaps a lot. The HDD needs to be repair-formatted or fully reformatted to talk to the new mobo when switched out, try this if all else fails, i personally think giving this simple solution may fix the boot up issue, but do make sure ur friend who looked at your laptop hadn't reset ur C MOS and may of not reconfigured it, this may also be the main cause of boot up troubles so make sure everything looks fine in ur BIOS. Gabriel will have a more proper solution than this but i believe by doing this it may help u bypass ur loading issue

Gateway m 1625 operating system not found and its overheating


This means either the operating system on your hard drive has become corrupt and you will need to reinstall your operating system or, more likely, your hard drive has failed and you will need to replace the hard drive and the operating system.

As for your heat issue, use a can of compressed air and blow out all the vents on your laptop. This should help the heat issue; note that it is common for the laptop to feel hot as it is dissipating the heat from inside.

Thanks and please take a moment to give this solution a thumbs up rating with a solved solution as I answered your questions. Thanks.!

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!

Please don't forget to rate my help!
Thank you for using FIXYA!
Have a great day!
