What windows do you have? what anti-virus? then check your
system tools program in Start/Accessories/, run Disk Cleanup
after system up. wait till finished then run Disk Fragmentor. If you
have a anti-malware program or anitvirus program run thoughs one after the other, cleanup first.
You may need to clean up your registry too. Make sure you have not downloaded any third party PC Cleaners, or programs which claim to keep pc running fast. these are usually bad and hog system resources. After doing what i have suggested, download CCleaner from Cnet.downloads web site. do a search to find it. after downloading CCleaner(free version), run the two top jobs on left of box. 1) Cleaner(broom icon), then after finished 2) Registry(stacked boxes icon). if 2) asks you if you want to save backup, say 'NO'. this will clean your harddrive of garbage and clean the PCs registry. These things can really slow you down.
Please DO NOT run anything else in CCLEANER. Only experienced computer users should change or runs any other program in it. Much harm could be done if YOU DO. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: screen stuck on black with gateway logo

That indicates a hardware problem. From your description I would check the cpu or suspect it as being the problem. It can be a ram problem as well.

SOURCE: Gateway Foxconn C51GU01 (105552) Problem: blue

Possible a memory socket is bad. Make sure you are using the correct type of memory including parity and compatible speeds. It is recommended to use like memory sticks in each slot. Some PCs even require the sticks to be equal memory capacity. User's guide should tell you what the compatible capacities and speeds should be. If you don't have the manual, you can get by looking up your PC model number on Gateway.com.

SOURCE: my gateway 510x keeps shutting itself off.

sounds like your processor fan shut down and now your processor itself shuts off when it begins to over heat replace fan asap and don't keep trying to turn it on because you'll burn it out

SOURCE: Gateway GT4010 boots then starts beeping and shuts off

First check your power supply section and check your power fan that is running properly. if ok then the suspected area is your processor section. please check it if its collar fan nor running properly then clean up or change that. and the other advice is please check your processor pin which are too tiny. be careful about these.

Gateway freeze randomly it just screen freeze


If you can, download Combofix, Vundofix, smitfraudfix, and malewarebytes.

Boot the computer in Safemode, and then run each program, one at a time of course.

If this doesn't fix the problem, then it will at least verify that it's not a virus related issue.

Gateway Tablet, BSOD unmountable_boot_volume


you have to go to gateway and download the driver for the SATA controller then save it to floppy or cd then hit F6 durning install then it will ask you for the driver. This Tablet will not see a non-gateway cd if you have the one that came with the tablet then you are good, but if not you will need to do this for the current drive or if yo upgrade to newer drive. Hope this get you started, I had this same problem and I thought it was my motherboard was bad because it would not see the hard drive during installation. This fixed my issue with the drive not being seen during installation of the OS.
