It is most likely overheatiing... you need to disassemble it to the point that you can clean out the dirt and dust in the fan and cpu cooling area.

Hi.

  1. Remove all CDs or DVDs from the optical drives.
  2. Turn off the computer, using the normal Windows shut down process.
  3. After the computer is turned off, disconnect all USB devices except the keyboard and mouse. This includes USB devices such as a printer, scanner, removable storage, or camera.
  4. Turn on the computer. After the Gateway BIOS logo appears, repeatedly press the F8 key. The Advanced Boot Options menu opens.
  5. On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to select Repair your Computer, and then press the ENTER key.


  6. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, select the appropriate keyboard layout, and then click Next.


  7. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click the down arrow to select a user account that has Administrator rights, then click OK.

    Note: The Administrator account is disabled by default.

  8. In the System Recovery Options window, select Recovery Manager.


  9. In the Gateway Recovery Center window, click Next.


  10. In the Gateway system recovery window, select Full factory recovery.


  11. In the All data will be lost window, select Yes, and then click Next.


  12. The Windows partition is formatted and Windows is installed.


  13. In the Recovery is complete window, click Finish.


  14. In the System Recovery Options window, select Restart.

When the computer restarts you will need to set up the laptop again.

Good luck.

My laptop previously used to startup and shut down fast but from two days its taking too long for start up and shut down also , i scan my laptop with Norton antivirus which is updated but no virus found...


Hi, sound like its infected with a virus or a bug, Update your virus scanner and do a complete scan. Also try a great bit of free software, spybot search and destroy, to remove spy ware. Hope this helps?

VIA KT400 Chipset Driver update fried my ATI Radeon 9550 AGP Card


AGP is a bit old for win7, i'd drop it. that said, if the ati card is an addin perhaps your onboard (via) chip is causing the problem. turn it off in your bios so that the install never even detects it and use drivers from ati.

Cmos checksum bad...usb current status detected system shut down 15 sec


Situation Remedies If you have encountered this error and would like to fix your computer, here are some remedies for each situation:
CMOS Battery Not Functioning Properly: If you suspect your CMOS battery is not functioning properly you can easily change it. Before changing your battery, reboot your computer to make sure that the error still exists. If it does, go into your CMOS and write down all of the settings. If all settings are lost, you can usually get them from your computer manufacturer. Now locate the battery and remove it, you might need to consult your computers manual or tech support to remove your battery. Take down the CMOS batteries information such as volt, size, etc. Once you have your new battery, you can replace it and reenter your CMOS settings. If your battery was the cause of the CMOS Checksum Bad Error, you should have remedied the problem.
Your BIOS has Been Updated (either by you or possibly a virus): If your BIOS has been updated recently, your CMOS settings may have become reset. Make sure that the values entered in the BIOS are correct or simply reset them to the default settings. If you believe that a virus updated your BIOS settings, run a virus scan and make sure that the BIOS settings are back to the default.
The Computer Was Shut Down Improperly: Sometimes when running MS Windows, if you shut down your laptop or desktop without first properly shutting down your operating system it will corrupt the CMOS settings causing the CMOS Checksum Bad Error. You can easily avoid this error by making sure that you completely shut down your computer before turning off the power. Usually this entails going into the Start Menu/ Turn Off Computer/ Shut Down. If you received the error, shut down the computer properly, if this is the cause of the error, the error message will not return.

Intel P$ 1.8 mhz on a D845HV/D845WN board


Before removing your current card swap video outputs on the PC. If currently connected to the VGA output switch to the HDMI connector AT the video card. Use the HDMI to VGA adapter that came with the video card. Check & see if the display loads Pc starts. Taking the information directly from your motherboard manual pg. 25, your AGP video can only run at, AGP supporting 1.5 V 4X AGP cards. The 9600pro runs at 8x & it is not backwards compatible. (able to run at either 8x or 4x). You could run the Sappire ATI Radeon 256MB 9550 DDR AGP 4x/8x 1.5volt card.
Here is one site: http://www.colordrives.com/sapphire-ati-radeon-9550-256mb-ddr-agp-4x-8x-video-card---retail-box.html
When you do get the video card be sure to set your bios AGP to the correct size as listed in your manual pg. 109 subsection 4.4.7
I hope this helped.
