Question about Gateway MD2614u Notebook
One more question if i clean that heatsync with alcohol on the cpu area and that doesn't resolve any suggestion for any software to dignostic on the laptop to see whats going on thank you
Shutdown issues can occur for different reasons besides
overheating. If it IS heat, then it
could be that your vents are clogged with dust.
Used compressed air and blow into the areas on the bottom and the sides
that look like grills for air flow. I'd
try this first.
Another reason for shutdowns could be a bad connecting AC cord alongside a failing battery. If you laptop is always plugged in, then the battery can lose its ability to hold a charge. If you're AC tip wiggles too much when plugged in, it could be a broken DC-in jack which may not be worth the repair as they are usually soldered to the motherboard.
Easiest way to see if the AC is the issue is to remove the battery and gently wiggle the cord to see if it powers off from the movement.
Also if the AC cord is twisted up too much it can cause a break in the cable. Examine the cord length and see if you have any bulges, or even cat or dog bites.

It depends what type of memory card you are referring to.
USB memory will plug into the USB ports on the left side of the laptop.
If you are using a Memory Sick, Memory Stick Pro, Mini Secure Digital, MultiMediaCard, RS_MultiMediaCard, Secure Digital (SD), or xD-Picture card they will go into the memory card reader on the left side of the laptop about 2 inches from the front of the machine. ** NOTE: this is the bottom slot.
If you are using a Type 54 ExpressCard it will also go in on the lfetside but this slot will be above the Memory card reader slot mentioned above.
Good Luck! :-)

SOURCE: Cooler Problem ?
There are devices you can purchase which aids in pulling more air through the system and keeping it cooler. One which I purchased and am quite pleased with is by Antec. It is a dual fan unit that is powered by one of your USB ports. You place your laptop on top of the unit, power it on, and it works wonders at keeping your system free from damaging heat buildup and those annoying shutdowns!
There are other units made by other manufacturers available as well. Some more expensive, some less. I have always had good luck with products from Antec and their price was reasonable as well.
