Well, you can purchase a replacement bios chip online. Depending on your technical skills that option may be over your head, but there are companies online that will do it for you if you mail it to them. You could also purchase the chip and bring it to a local shop, though not all shops will have a technician that can do this for you. You could also see if you can send it to gateway for reflashing, it will probably be costly but may help you.

The Gateway 675 are known for video card problems.You can unseat the card and clean it,then replace the thermal grease.The thermal grease on these get runny under heat and causes the video card to loose contact.Try the grease if that doesn't work the video card will need to be replaced.

My Gateway M675 notebook begins to boot and 4-5 minutes into whatever is loading it freezes and will not allow me to do anything at all. To shut down I need to press the reset or remove the battery. Any...

OVERHEATING ~ me thinks ~ especially at the CPU where most heat is generated!

SEE this YOUTUBE to learn how to get the BOTTOM off... Take your Gateway to a tire shop and blow it out thoroughly!

Bring a MASK and a SOFT / OLD paint brush and round toothpick to assist.

Pay SPECIAL attention to the FAN area AND the DUST UNDER it!

SEE the PHOTO below AND NOTE the DUST UNDER the fan! Many times that fan gets IMPACTED with dust and dirt! So again ~ clean thoroughly!

Good luck!

I flashed the bios on my gateway m675 and it stopped working. It turns on but screen is blank. If I hook it up to an external monitor I can get into bios. Is there anyway to get it back to the way it was?...

pls check the bios set up externally if you mistakenly turn the brightness down, and correct it

or see if ther is any brightness button you accidentally pushed on the top of your laptop

or ther could be some problem with your LCD inverter or the LCD itself.

Help me to install WinXP in a Gateway Laptop that came with SATA HDD

you have probably already fixed this but maybe others can find this a little helpful. i had to downgrade a gateway ma7 for one of my customers who had lost their recovery cd with vista on it. Their HD had gone bad.

The reason the XP installer says "no HD" is because the the drivers required by the gateways Sata controller (hd controller) are not preloaded on the xp install disc. The only way around this is to download the windows xp compatible sata drivers from gateways website and then slipstream them into a custon windows xp install cd. its actually not as difficult as it sounds. just download the sata driver, a slipstreaming program called nlite.

1 download and install nlite
2 put in your xp install cd, and run nlite, when nlite asks, browse to the i386 folder (your installation files)
3 you will have lots of options to choose from, but for this purpose, choose "add drivers" and select the location of the gateway drivers (c:\cabs\something) i think.
4 finish and burn the cd. then use it to install windows xp.

this little guide isnt step by step, but with a little trial and error you should get by
