1 - remove all of the startup programs - go to run and enter msconfig, hit enter, enter startup and remove all of the checkmarks that appear
2 - disable auto updates, defender, firewall
3 - turn OFF all anti virus programs that you have running using up valuable resources.
4 - reboot.

I bought a new battery for laptop and it still wont charge


Dell uses proprietary equipment. IF the laptop wont work when plugged in and it is the original Dell charger, you need to check the charger, if the charger wont work then the battery wont charge. Note that it might be the connection on the board inside the laptop especially if the cord got pulled on while plugged into the laptop.

Cant re install built in webcam after installing new hard drive


When you went to the Gateway website and downloaded drivers, did you notice that under drivers there was nothing for the webcam? Use this link and download the webcam application under Applications tab. The driver is included in the application.

I've got an old Gateway desktop I need to connect to a wireless router for my job. I just bought a new, much stronger NetGear router and it still won't connect. I no longer have a laptop and I'm DESPERATE...


Unless you've installed a wireless card in your old desktop you will never connect wirelessly.
Desktops don't come equiped to do wireless communications. And an "old Gateway" surely does not have those capabilities.

You have 2 options
1) Purchase and install a wireless card for your Gateway

2) Use it hard wired... Purchase an "Ethernet cable" of sufficient length and plug it into one of the open ports on the back of the router and into the only place it will fit on the back of your computer

WANT TO BUY A SECOND HAND M29 SELECTRON 2 GROUP- LA CIMBALI


The price for the m29 select new is about 5500 to 6000. So for one of 4-5 years you can give about 2500-3000. However I sugest to open the machine and check if their are rusting points or any leaking points which propably be white points from calcium color. Also ask if their were any water filter like everpure or and a water softener conected to water supply of machine during the operation of the machines.
If you see minor points as above and the water was treated before entering the machine then your machine can work for minimum another 10 years.
Water calcium (scale) is the biger enemy of the machine.
Good Luck

Hdd password block on Gateway M 275 convertible tablet


There is a battery inside that will dump the password. It may be soldered to the motherboard. A computer repair shop can do the job in about 10 minutes. While you're at it, just replace the battery. It only adds a couple dollars to the cost.

Laptop Gateway mx8711


Gateway laptop is really ****.
I bought Gateway MX8711 in March 2007, after 6 months i use it...the hard disk failed.
Gateway replaced a new Hitachi hard disk for me but not more than 8 months and it failed again.
Gateway told me that i have no more warranty because the repair warranty is only 90 days.
I bought this laptop and use it not more than 2 years, the hard disk was failed twice.
Usually Hard disk manufacturer provided 3 years warranty for the hard disk. The manufacturer year of the hard disk is May 2007....they should able to help because the har disk not more than a year being used...but they don't. This is really bad customer service and not fair to the buyer.
I will not buy any Gateway products anymore....i swear.
