Question about Gateway NV5378u Notebook

Open Question

Laptop issue I use to load a browser e.g. Google, Firefox, IE and the page would immediately come up with a horizontal bar in the address bar. I would then start typing without incident. (No clicking or positioning) Now, I need to click on the horizontal bar in order to allow me to type. And, upon opening a browser, the cursor displays itself anywhere on the page requiring me to move it to the address bar and click. Next, My computer seems to be getting a mind of it's own with respect to typing. It makes no differnce whtether you are on e-mail or just typing this note as you can see from the mistakes in just this line. Thcursor jumps to diffrent lines and starts typing, leaves out characters and just all in all jumps all over the place. Both of these issues are driving mr nuts not to mention theextra time involved needed to correct the mistakes. Please help.

Sounds like an inverter problem. If the power supply is internal replace the capacitors coming out of the voltage regulators. These are usually 1000mf and/or 470mf. If that doesn't do the trick look up the numbers on the 8-pin chips that drive the secondary transformers on the inverter to see if they are getting the right voltages.
Good Luck!

don't worry pam, if all else fails, reset the modem. you can do that by pressing and then hold for 30 seconds the reset button at the back of your modem. by resetting your modem it will go back to its default settings. if you think you've messed up the configuration by trying to fix it. this is the best thing to do. by resetting the modem you will be able to start fresh.
you can access it again by typing 192.168.1.1 in the address bar, username is admin, password is password. it will ask you to type a new password, make it admin as well so you won't forget. after that you can begin again to reconfigure your modem. if you are unsure of what to do, i suggest you call tech support of your isp provider and they will be able to help you with this. if, however, you know that your connection type is DHCP or OPEN PPOE, you might not need to call tech support, it will automatiically find your network and then "plug and play" you will be able to go online. but if you're connection type is PPPOE, you will definitely have to call tech support to make sure you will configure it correctly, all you actually need is the correct username and password for your connection. it's usually the one you use for your email if your isp is verizon for example. just remember if all else fails, reset the modem. it won't reset if you press it quickly, you need to press and hold for a minimum of 15seconds;

How to make google my homepage


In Firefox, click on the little Firefox bar in the upper left corner. then click on OPTIONS, and OPTIONS again. Inside that menu box is a place for you to enter your preferred home page address. Save that, and the next time your browser starts, it will default to Google. IE and Chrome and Opera all have similar setups -- find the TOOLS or the OPTIONS or whatever button or icon, and look for words like setup, options, home page, etc.

Make yahoo my homepage


This depends on which browser you are using.
For Internet Explorer:
Click the tools menu (the gear button in the upper right of the window)
Click 'Internet Options' On the 'General' tab, the first option is to change your homepage. Input yahoo's web address in the box and that will be your new homepage.
For Chrome:
Click the toolbar icon (the button with three horizontal bars in the upper right of the window). Click 'Settings', and then under 'Startup' select the option to 'Open a specific page or set of pages', and click 'set pages' where you can input yahoo's web address.
For Firefox:
Similar process to IE, select 'Settings'=>'General'=>'Startup'=>input web address.
Other browsers likely have a similar process.
Have a nice day.

Web page performance is a measure of the response load time of a web page. The slower a page loads, the higher the page's visitor bounce rate will be. There are quite a few free tools available on the market designed to conduct diagnostic performance tests on web pages. These tests analyze a select page, based a set of rules that are proven to speed the load time. You can use a web-based performance analyzing tool. Or you can install tool add-ons to your Firefox web browser.

Open your computer's web browser and go to GTmetrix.com or http://www.pagespeed.googlelabs.com/ Enter the complete URL of the page you would like to measure in the provided field. Press "Enter" to get the results of your performance test. b> Using Page Speed Firefox Add-On b> Launch the Firefox web browser. Download and install the Page Speed add-on from the Google website. Download and install the Firebug add-on from the GetFireBug website. Enter the URL of the web page you would like to measure in the Firefox address bar. Click the Firebug icon located in the top right-side of the Firefox window, to open the Firebug window. Click the "Page Speed" button in the Firebug status bar. Click "Analyze Performance" to get the results of your performance test. b> Using YSlow Firefox Add-On b> Launch the Firefox web browser. Download and install the YSlow add-on from the Yahoo website. Download and install the Firebug add-on from the GetFireBug website. Enter the URL of the web page in the Firefox address bar. Click the Firebug icon located in the top right-side of the Firefox window, to open the Firebug window. Click the "YSlow" button in the Firebug status bar.

Open Internet Explorer then enter www.google.com when Google page opens then Click on Tools - Internet Options

I i AM UNABLE TO LOOK UP ANY THING BECAUSE FACEBOK IS IN MY WAYto get rid of the fACEBOOK SCREEN HOOW DO I D THIS


Hi. First, open your browser.
I'm guessing by your statement that somehow facebook has turned into your home page, so here is how to fix that.
These instructions are for Firefox, Internet explorer instructions are further down.

Ok, now, leave the first page open for now, and open a new tab.
Immediately click the stop button, so that no page opens.

Next in the address bar type: www.google.com and press enter.
This should give you the google website.
Next, Left click on the little g logo that is at the beginning of the address bar, and hold down the mouse button, and drag it to on top of the browsers home button.
It should pop up a box that either asks, or states, that google is being added as your home page.

This is the way to do it for foxfire.

Now, here is how to change your homepage in internet explorer.

You can do this with or without a browser being open.

With is easier, just from instruction standpoint, but after a couple of steps, it is the same for IE

Open IE browser
click the tools tab
click internet options
OK, this will pop up the internet properties box
Change the address of the homepage from facebook.com to google.com
Delete the facebook entry on the homepage list
click apply
This should take care of the problem, but before you close the internet property box click delete history, and have the system delete your browsing history.
It may make a few webpages load a little slower, but it could be a cookie is what is making facebook always be on top.
Delete your browsing history in firefox as well.

Then reboot, and try opening a browser.
It should work normal for you again.

I want to remove bing and return my browser to google default page and restore the tool bar on top of same. thanks BV


I assume your browser currently has a Bing search page as the default (home) page, which displays when Firefox launches. You can reset Firefox to use any web address as the home page.

Here are the steps:
(1) In the browser, go to Tools > Options > General
(2) In the field labeled "home page", type the URL of the page you wish to use. (For a basic Google search page, the URL would be "http://www.google.com/" For a basic Bing search page, the URL would be "http://www.bing.com/")
(3) Then click "OK" at the bottom

There's also a shorthand way to do this:
(1) First, go to the web page you wish to use as your new home page.
(2) Move your mouse to the icon in the address bar (near top of the browser), and then drag the icon over to the "home" button.

For more on setting the Firefox home page, see this help page from Mozilla.

What is the blank page?


Do you mean "about:blank"?

This is when you do not have any website entered on your address bar. There is a setting on your browser that uses the blank page as the home page so that whenever you open your browser it will not load any website, then you may type your preferred website in the address bar. This saves time for you to go to a website without waiting for the home page to load.

If you would like to setup a home page, follow the steps below:

If you are using Internet explorer:
Go to Tools -> Internet Options. Change the Home page to any website that you want (ex. google.com, yahoo.com). Then OK.

If you are using Firefox:
Go to Tools -> Options. On the drop down button beside "When Firefox starts" select Show my home page, then enter any website that you prefer on the home page field.

I hope this helps!
