Problem starting laptop

My computer is only 3 months old but it only powers up one in every 4 tries and it looses whatever settings I have already established. Getting very discouraged at owning a Gateway laptop.

    No, I hadn't even thought about contacting Gateway. But now I will. Thank you. In my mind, I thought it was Vista or perhaps Norton that I had downloaded...because that was when everything started going wrong.

Laptop sometimes switches off when moved.


Sounds like a loose connection where the laptop opens and closes hinge there are wires that run from the main screen to the main board. If you know how to take the unit apart it maybe a cheap fix if not then a new laptop maybe the way to go the prices have really dropped from 4 years ago

Plug it up w/o or w battery green lights comes on and then nothing Computer only 1 and couple months old help


1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. Make sure the DC jack is not loose or broken. A loose DC jack will need to be re-soldered. A broken one will need to be replaced.
4. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
5. The power button could be bad.

6. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

Acer Extensa 5630EZ does not start


Not really sure--could be a motherboard problem. But you say the computer is less than 3 months old. That means it's still under warranty--so call their tech support. You paid for support when you bought the machine, so I would use it.

Every so often, after I start my Lenovo T500


It could be anything from a bad keyboard, stuck key, bad port on the motherboard. Since your laptop is only 6 months old it should still be under warranty. Give Lenovo Tech support a call and explain what is happening.

My Compaq Presario CQ60 is overheating


Same issue with one I'm looking at here. A number of people have reported that using the new nvidia display drivers results in the laptop running much cooler. The download link is below, also make sure to uninstall all the other applications that come with the driver package and leave only the following.
Best of luck, Ravi Shanghavi

My Dell600 won't power on with or without A/C adapter


Hi!
If the unit was a Brand New purchased, and still 4 months old, its better to avail the "warranty" of the unit, to save you from any trouble. But if it is a second hand without any warranty, you can eithertake this risky step or submit it to a certified service center.
The risky step is to open your laptop, and check the "charger terminal" for loose contact, or solder detached terminals.
