I own a very dated Gateway laptop 9600 and I want to transfer data to new laptop. I am attempting to download files to CDs but it is not reading the blank disk and asking me to insert disk. Is it possible...

Yes it is - but first - make sure that you have inserted the right disk (cd for cd burner). However, you only have 800 mb of available space on a cd disk to use, and I don;t know how many files you have or how big they are, so I can't say how many disks you may need. However, if your laptop has a usb port, I would highly recommend using an external hard drive instead. A 500 gb drive (made by Seagate) will run you about $125, and is well worth th investment. Hope this helps!

Hello i have a 6531gz laptop with a fresh install of xp . i did not have the disks that came with the laptop so for some reson i have no sound and my dvds wont play i downloaded the only download you have...

Go to this page:

You'll need the Realtek High Definition Audio driver

If your laptop uses the Intel chipset, download the Intel notebook video driver v6.14.10 otherwise, down load the nvidia video drivers

You may also want to download the notebook chipset driver v4.57

These should work. If you find you still can't play dvds consider downloading a third party open source video player (VLC videoplayer is excellent)

Hope this works. Good luck!

Gateway notebook m1624-shuts off randomly by itself

Check if your laptop is hot on the bottom left corner. If it is hot that means that the cpu thermal past is dry out. I have to sent in to gateway 5 times for the same shut down problem while it was still in warranty. The gateway m-1624 has a poor cooling unit. I hope that help you.

No sound driver working on my gateway notebook pc

Did you check the Device Manager, the audio driver, has it a yellow ? against it or is it OK and enabled? If it is has the MUTE button been ticked?
If it has a yellow ? against the audio driver then the correct audio driver was not installed. Go to the Gateway Support/download page to download the correct XP driver for your model laptop's audio device and install it.
If the sound still doesn't work check Device Manager to see if the driver was installed and working.
