Well cause it hot inside that's why..sometimes computer manufacturers don't use the most efficient or the most quiet power supplie needed only use the minimum wattage so it may be straining to keep it cool or it just loud. They do sell quiet models you can hardly hear running of course they are a little more expensive.....just make sure all of your vents are blown out with some compressed air for good air flow..if it bothers you, just open the case and find the wattage on the power supply, probably 400W and upgrade it to a 500W and quiet fan type.Tthat will make it easier to push the power and less annoying..good luck if you have any questions let me know..heres a website on how to change power supplies:

My gateway 500gr wont download anything


You might have some viruses and malware.

Start your PC and press F8 several times until the boot menu comes up. Then select "Safe Mode with Networking". Now get some or ALL of the FREE programs below.

Download, Install and Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware:

When Installing choose the non-pro version.

Download, Unzip, Install and Run TDSSKiller:
http://majorgeeks.com/Kaspersky_TDSSKiller_d6895.html

Download, Install and Run Super Anti-Spyware:
http://majorgeeks.com/SUPERAntiSpyware_d5116.html

If you have an outdated Anti-virus program then Download, Install and Run Avira Anti-Virus:
http://majorgeeks.com/Avira_AntiVir_Personal_-_FREE_Antivirus_d955.html
Make sure to select ALL of the "threat categories" when you install or configure Avira...

You should be in pretty good shape if you run and install all of these programs.

I have a older gateway pc model 500gr need product key


If your machine has Windows XP on it and can still run the OS, you can retrieve the product key with a freeware program called "keyfinderthing3". Simply Google the name and get the tool.

Can not find ethernet drivers

Here is the driver link to the Gateway 500GR that I found.

http://support.gateway.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?partNumber=3724

Note the system I saw on this page was black and the picture for this system is biege. So it looks like Gateway has a version change with this model.

If you still have trouble let me know all the model info off the back of the computer.

I need to know what are my options if i want to upgrade my gateway 500gr. Mamory, video card, power supply? what else can i do?


If your computer is more than 4 years old and you want a faster computer with a high end graphics card for games, RAM and larger hard disk and Windows 7, then I would seriously consider buying a new computer. You don't need to purchase a new monitor (keep your existing one), this will reduce the costs.
An upgraded old computer would not be as good as a new one, when you consider the costs and time involved with replace hardware and installing Windows on a larger hard drive, device drivers and programs etc.

My gateway 540 gr start for 5 seconds and turn off, the fan starts to then turn off.


Disconnect everything except for the power to the motherboard. If you turn on the computer and everything still turns off, then try another known working power supply. If the machine stays turned on then connect power to your drives one at a time with the computer off each time to see which drive is the culprit.

If everything still turns off then reseat the CPU and the memory and if it still turns off then that means the motherboard is bad and it would need to be replaced.

CPU Fan.


Make Sure your thermal compound is properly placed, check the temp of your CPU. CPU might be overheating due to destroyed layer of compound and therefore Fans run faster...
