Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a Gateway laptop, Model M-456-E. I did a "restore", but it obviously did NOT get the video driver for the LCD right. The screen keeps recycling (refresh) on both the laptop and the #2 LCD. I know that Gateway has gone away, but how can I locate and download the correct video driver?? Help please! **** Truex

    Richard,

    Don't forget when you visit Windows Update to choose "custom" so that the hardware drivers will pop up. Let me know what happens.

Gateway laptop screen darkens after boot up


Have you updated a Graphic driver? Does it Dim on battery and AC? Look at power settings. Control Panel, Power. You could Rool-Back the graphic driver to see if that changes the problem. A Gateway mt6841 has Windows XP OS, right?

I have GATEWAY LAPTOP model mx6424 with windows vista home primium, service pack 1. but i have no sonud, i got like this massage. THAT ''NO AUDIO OUTPUT DEVICE INSTLLED'' PLZZZ,HELP ME.


Hello !

1. I have some solutions for you i hope.
Below is a link to a support page on gateway but you have to find your model nr to be sure its the right driver.

http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/search.asp?param=sigmatel

2. Below is a link to page for buying restore-disk for gateway

http://restore-disk.com/restoredisks/Gateway/GatewayMX6424/Gateway-MX6424-Vista-Restore-Disk-145022.html

3. On this page you need to be a member if you want that driver.The problem today is that we all have to pay for every driver when we need them for our computers and stuff.

http://members.driverguide.com/driver/detail.php?driverid=1630218

if none of this will work the best thing is to maybe install windows xp instead.

Good Luck and
Best Regards

My graphics driver keeps shutting down


make sure u have the correct amount of ram allocated to your internal video card thru your bios settings download your owners manual from gateway to get to your bios and set back to setup defaults should be F2 F6 F10. and another issue could be your recovery cd is outdateded.. u might have updated your bios firmware so now your motherboard chipset firmware that is on your restore disk is causing a irq failure

Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop..the screen goes almost black after 5 minutes.


The screen goes black while in normal mode right? So try to boot in safe mode (power on then keep tapping F8 then select safe mode). Check if still happens in safe mode.

If screen does not goes black in safe mode it means there might be a software or driver causes problem when running in normal mode. You can try the following (update your anti virus software then run a full system scan, uninstall the video driver then download and install the latest one, uninstall any previous windows update or you can system restore to the time when it was working fine).

If the screen goes black even in safe mode they try connecting the laptop to an external monitor if still goes black, if yes then absolutely no issues with the LCD panel. You can try (uninstall and reinstall the video driver if still persist then this might end up replacing video card or motherboard, but before doing that update the BIOS first).

If does not goes black in ext monitor then the LCD panel might causes the problem. Reseat the LCD cable or inverter if you can.

Can i replace my Gateway laptop tft screen with a new lcd screen?


The screen resolution is a combo of:
  1. the screen's capability
  2. the video card's capability
  3. the driver's settings
If the above screen is made for this laptop (as it appears to be), then the settings you had should still be there.

Profile 5.5 during startup screen goes blank


If the video card is an "onboard type" Is is not easy to replace.If you have a seperate video card, you may replace it with a like type, PCI, AGP,PCIe,etc. or if you computer has an open slot a video card can be added and turn off the "onboard video" in start up screen BIOS .    Since this is a GATEWAY(I do not know the model) computer you also always have the option of a complete restore .
