Question about Gateway NV52L08u 15.6" Notebook Computer Red

1 Answer

Wireless is slow and intermittent

I have updated all the drivers using windows update and the respected websites. I have used CCleaner to fix any registry errors i may have had/made and have also scanned in the case of virus'. My issue still remains with extremely slow (10 minutes to load a web page if I am lucky) and intermittent wireless. Not sure of this issue.

Sounds like you may still have a 'rootkit' virus. This is a virus that doesn't show up in a normal scan. You need to use a virus scanner that will start as soon as you turn on the computer. It does its scanning BEFORE your operating system boots up. Avast anti virus will do this as well as some others but you have to choose this option from the antivirus program. Another option is to take it to someone who can do this for you.

Cannot switch on wireless connection Packard bell laptop does not have switch


Wireless problems with a Packard Bell PC or laptop can be caused by a variety of issues.


The best troubleshooting resources are the documentation that came supplied with the computer, and the Support section of the Packard Bell website.


Unable To Detect Wireless Network


If the Packard Bell machine is unable to detect a wireless network, the computer itself or the network could be at fault.


Check that a wireless signal is being broadcast via another PC or device, and check that are wireless adapter is installed, complete with the latest drivers, which are available at the Packard Bell website.


Unreliable Wireless Network


If the wireless connection is unreliable, intermittent or very slow, it suggests a problem with the Wi-Fi broadcast.


Try positioning the computer closer to the router broadcasting the wireless signal, or use a signal booster to improve the range.


Download and install the latest driver updates from the Packard Bell website and through the Windows Update tool.


Unable To Connect To Wireless Network


If the computer can detect the network but is unable to connect to it, a network security key may be required. This should have been configured by the person who set up the network. Consult the documentation that came with your router for details of how to change it or generate a new key.


Hope this helps

My laptop won't play sound. how do i fix this?


Thank you for using Fixya Forums.

I just want to verify the sound 'Mute' button is locked, is that a button on your laptop or are you referring to the sound icon in the system tray? Are you showing a 'Red X' on the sound icon in the system tray? I have attached some information on updating drivers and some other troubleshooting tips. Please let me know if you are still having any problems or if issue has been corrected.

My computer is running really slow whenever a new


VinayT is right, not all updates are for you. Besides, he recommends CCleaner for you to clean Windows registry and improve the slow running speed, why this?
If you have never cleaned your registry before, then it will be shocking when you see how many errors exist in your Windows registry. Since you have installed and uninstalled programs, information is stored there. Those errors can cause Windows crash, freeze, errors and, slowdown.
CCleaner is good, but in my opinion, not good enough as a registry cleaner, because it covers less areas than paid registry optimizer software, here is a free registry cleaner review may help you know this.
Good luck!
