Question about Gateway 600X PC Notebook

1 Answer

My Gateway 600x is having frequent power interuptions

The power keeps being interrupted to my 600x, like someone has flicked the power switch quickly off and then back on again. This causes a reboot, of course right in the middle of something.There is no pattern to it. I replaced the surge protector,but no go.

Check the fan, make sure it spins freely, also clean the dust off the fan and heatsink.

Power interrupted during cycle. now it won't do anything. I think it needs a reset. checked fuse box, it was fine.


As a general rule, what you are describing happens if the power is interrupted for a short time and the machine doesn't get a chance to do a reset before the power comes back. There is a good chance if you power the unit off then actually unplug it from the wall and leave it 20 minutes it should do a reset and be OK. REcognising this is a built in, I would hope there is an isolator switch somewhere nearby you can flick, but if not you will have to switch the breaker that feeds the kitchen in your breaker box.

Cannot get light to go on and then off at programmed time. Stays on. At cottage with no neighbours or ambient light. Installed professionally, not by myself. Frustrated many efforts before contacting...


Light stays on all the time: Turn power to light off. Wait 10 seconds. Turn power back on.
Typical option on motion lights: Quick power flick -- light stays on. Slow power flick -- light goes into motion sensing mode.
Hopefully the professional installer gave you a switch.

My samsung galaxy ace gt-s5830 keeps turning itself off. The only way I can get the mobile to switch back on again is to take the battery out and then switch it on again. This has happened twice already...


I also have the exact same problem.
However, you don't need to take out the battery to re-power on the phone. Just hold the power button for a longer time (about 10 seconds). The screen will light up and the device will reboot.

If not a bad kettle lead or loose connection at the monitor it could be:

Failing inverter, also maybe powerboard capacitors leaking or not holding charge. flicking the power switch will cause it to fail more quickly, repair or replacement I'm afraid

2 options.

H4 is caused by power interrupting or high voltage. To remove this error press "C" "interrupt key" "0" "interrupt key" The machine goes off then press number 14. switch off machine then switch on.

The front passenger power window will not come up. The window seems to be stuck


It is the switch or motor, remove door panel and feel the motor and flick the switch up&down if you feel a click in the motor it is not the switch it;s the motor, motor & regulator is about $125.00 at auto zone $65.00 on-line

Logitech S520 mouse and keyboard Screensaver and power shut down


Not a solution but it may bring some light to the problem,

There is some program calling windows every 10min or so... that's why your screen saver gets interrupted. You might need to check which program is it. Or guess it out.

Hope it helps, if you have more doubts feel free to ask.
