Your book is corrupted. Try to install the newest software for that hardware. If you still have problem, replace the book.

Installed a new graphic cards for Gateway DX4710-UB801A, it works for a day, but the next day, it wouldn't turn on, the power supply is not running.


Pull the new graphics card out to see if the power supply will start up, if no change, you will need a new power supply module.

As with any USB problem, our first port of call is Device manager, now Uninstall the entire thing ALL the USB, after that Reboot, wait until at desktop next,wait for a few minutes, NOW, install ANY/ALL software that came with your device, Reboot, DO NOT plug in your USB device UNLESS ASKED, Reboot, now when at desktop next time, wait again a few min's and THEN, plug in your USB device, you should hear the familiar, Dong, Dong, and it will install itself, it may ask where the "Drivers" are, if so, point it to them, and it will/should proceed, after which, still connected Reboot, NOW this time, you should be able to use your device. DO NOT miss any steps. especially the rebooting ones.

After a power outage, tried to power computer. All I got was flashing keyboard and power light while I held in the power button. As soon as I let go, everything goes dard. No start up sounds or anything....


Sounds like it could be the power supply was damaged from the power outage. If you have another PC you could pull the ATX power supply out and install it in the gateway and see if it boots up. Power supplies are fairly inexpensive so look for an aftermarket one...buying a replacement from Gateway will cost alot more. If the power supply turns out to be good then remove one device at a time the try to boot up. Sometimes a bad cd-rom drive or harddrive can cause a problem. My best guess it is the power supply.

Gateway 510 X Desktop


card or usb connector will both work. once you have installed the router software, you'll need to install the card software as well. the usb may also have software, but i don't have one so i'm not positive, but it's highly like;y in order to secure the network.
this should help guide you.

eistot. Let me guess. You operating system is Vista. This is a common problem for Vista users. Open control panel, open system, click the hardware tab, click the device manager button.
Scroll down to your devices that have a yellow ! point. Right click once on a device & left click update. Windows hardware update wizard will open, click not at this time & click next. Click install from a list or specific loacation. Click the brows button & than next. Point windows to C:\windows\system32 & choose to look in sub folders too. Windows should find your USB devices again.
If windows fails this endeavor please just post back here with your results so I can suggest another rout.

Good Luck & kind Regards eistot
