Gateway 831 GM

Hi,
Same situation. I came in the other day to use the computer, said windows was shutting down but was frozen. I turned of the power and tried to restart but it would rev up and then off for several times and now dead. Replaced power supply and still nothing. I guess mother board is the next step. Let me know if anyone has found a solution.
Thanks,
Dan

Power light blinking on nv53a gateway


Your Gateway laptop comes with a series of LED lights that alert you to the state of your computer. You'll notice there are blue, purple and red lights that either blink or display solidly. Each light, blinking or solid, has a different meaning. The blue blinking light on your laptop indicates that it is in Standby mode. Your laptop goes into Standby when you close its lid without shutting down the computer. To turn this light off, you'll need to take the computer out of Standby mode, and if you want to ensure that the blinking blue light does not return, shut down the computer after each use.

Open the lid of your Gateway laptop and press the power button. Once Windows loads, enter your password if required. The blue light will no longer be blinking because the computer is no longer in Standby mode. Shut the laptop off when you finish using it rather than simply closing the lid to stop the blue light from blinking again. Click "Start" from your Windows desktop and click "Shut down." Change your computer's power settings to keep if from going into Standby mode when you close the lid if you'd rather not shut down your computer every time you use it. Click "Start" and click "Control Panel." Click "System and Security" and then click "Power Options." Click "Choose what closing the lid does" from the list of options on the left side of the window. Select "Hibernate" from the drop-down lists under "On Battery" and "Plugged In." Click "Save Changes." Your laptop will now bypass Standby mode when you close the lid and it will enter Hibernate mode instead. Hope it helps.

When i start my gateway netbook lt20 a black screen pops up asking to start windows normally or 3 other options.. why?does this happen?


Usually because you didn't shut windows down properly before turning your computer off or completely draining your battery. If that is the case then simply select start windows normally and as long as you follow the correct shut down procedure it shouldn't happen again. If it does there may be a problem with your windows instalation.

Hi jdr_dlr519!
Pardon me.... but did your friend connected the monitor cable correctly on the system unit? Cleaning the fan will not break your computer... however, if he forgot to disconnect the power cables before opening the unit, it may do a damage.

Sounds like the computer is coming from sleep, standby or hibernation mode. Go to the power settings in the control panel, and disable all of these options. Disable your screen saver as well. Leave the machine on for a day and see if it happens again after this. Post your findings, please...

Gateway 831GM Video card


The 831 only supports 2 gigs of ram any more and it wont start. You can probably fit a 9800 in it but would be a very tight fit.

Gateway 831 GM won't boot up no signal is showing in the begining


ram,

It sounds like the problem is either your power supply OR the motherboard. A power supply swap doesn't take long or cost much.
On the other hand, replacing a motherboard takes 30 minutes or longer and can cost upwards of $100!

Please let me know if this helps. Good luck!

Make sure that there is not a power switch on the back of your computer. Alot of computers have a power switch on back of the power supply as a master shutoff.
