I have a gateway 506gr the monitor says self test, check your pc and signal cable monitor is working. nothing responds whats up?


Try turning the monitor after the pc is on. I have one monitor that shows that message if it is turned on before the pc is. If that doesn't work then there's 2 things i can think of. One is the cable is damaged, big issue if is integrated, and second the video card. Even if it is integrated you can get a replacement one and disable the first one if it gives you problems.

remove all components like hard drive, cd/dvd ,memory and video card.
start system if you get beeps then the motherboard is responding.
add the memory and start system again. If it starts add hard drive.

Is there a video controller driver for the 506GR model when running windows 7? the gateway web site does not support.


The 506GR has an old Intel (Augsburg) motherboard, and onboard video. The hardware is from 2005, and has no support for Windows 7. Unfortunately, you will need to upgrade.

Computer doesnt open the stick, as I pulled it out with out ejecting correctly


As this has happened to me recently... I'm not sure if you have used the memory stick in the past but if it has never read the stick then it just may be a bad one. If you have used it you have to remember that memory sticks are very tempermental. They will work one moment then not work the next. Always keep your thumb drive backed up on a hard drive. That is your best bet

Unable to run in dual channel mode


Hello,
Welcome to FixYa.

Currently there is no bios update for your system. In the course of operating my business I have seen dual channel RAM run in single channel as a result of the CPU in use. This should not be the case in your model though.

I would encourage you to speak with a Kingston rep to solve this problem as you are well within warranty.

Toll-Free:+1 (877) KINGSTON
+1 (877) 546-4786
Here is the Contact Page for Kingston if you are outside the U.S.
http://www.kingston.com/company/contact.asp

They will be able to resolve your issue which has to be related to the RAM you purchased. Even though the memory configurator pointed you to this RAM, it may not be functioning correctly and should be replaced or upgraded to a more specific RAM model.

Regards, thanks for choosing FixYa.

Loud noise


Typical problem in most computers, the fan is experiencing a "burn out." This means there is either something caught in the fan causing it to create noise, or the motor is going bad. there are two fixes for this problem.
1) open you computer's case according to its manual and remove the system cooling fan and give it a thorough cleaning.
2) you may need to replace the cooling fan with its recommended replacement model.

Hope this helps!
