Question about Gateway 450ROG Notebook
My gateway 450 ROG does not always boot up, it comes on but the screen gives you nothing! When it does comes up it runs all the way to regular windows starts up and then freezes! Does anyone know why this would happen?
Hi, The only easy check I can suggest is on the memory. Flip your notebook so that the bottom is facing up. Locate a small panel (with 1 or 2 screws) roughly 3X3in. Inside would be 1 or 2 memory strips held in place by 2 retaining clips, one on each side. Moving the clips slightly away from the memory would free the memory strip and partially spring up. It can now be easily removed. With a pencil eraser, clean/rub on the little gold contacts at the bottom. The slot where they mate with their holder could also be cleaned with an old toothbrush. If the above does not correct the errors, then perhaps you are better off seeking the services of a qualified professional since the unit may have to be opened up and diagnosis performed on its various components. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
