My government gateway number was never made available to me electronically. The only way I was able to obtain it was by post. This was the case even when I forgot (mislaid) my number. (despite advice thinly way I have to access it in writing: there is no way I can memorise a number that long even if I use it daily). Therefore I can only suggest that you follow any procedures concerning 'forgotten number' and do the best you can until you get another one.

My gateway windows xp will not run without it being on "safe mode" and i don't have a windows xp disk. gateway people told me it's a software problem and would be happy to fix it over the phon

If you need the XP disc you will have to purchase one or borrow one from a friend that is a legal version. You used to be able to get the disc using a P2P torrent program it has become something that has always been illegal to download bootlegged copies of software. "Warning" because of the new laws and the government stepping in to stop piracy a lot of programs that offer the disc are a huge risk now. So getting a legal copy would be something you may want to ponder a purchase of. You can buy the software just hunt around online you can get a pretty good deal that way you will own it and you can always have it handy. I agree with the software issue. John

Fan lights just started blinking, we changed bulbs which were bad but still blinking with new bulbs

This problem was posted on several sites, but this was the only one where I found both the cause of the problem and the solution. Mine is a Hunter 5 Minute Fan which came with no remote. And after about a month the two lights would blink together whenever I'd turn them on at the wall. So in case it helps for that type of fan or the same type of wiring arrangment here is what I did: POSITIVE SIDE: P1) Remove the light shade. P2) Remove the 3 screws that hold the cowel and lower the cowel. P3) Disconnect (pull apart) the black and red wire coupling. P4) Cut the coupling off of the black wire that comes up from the lights. P5) Strip off a quarter inch of jacket from that black wire. P6) Remove the wire nut that connects the black wire coming from the governor with the other black wire. P7) Re-use the wire nut to connect the black wire from step P5 with the other black wire from step P6. NEGATIVE SIDE: N1) Disconnect (pull apart) the white to white wire coupling. N2) Cut the coupling off of the white wire that comes up from the lights. N3) Strip off a quarter inch of jacket from that white wire. N4) Remove the wire nut that connects the white wire coming from the governor with three other white wires. N5) Set the governor aside (or just throw it away). N6) Re-use the wire nut to connect the white wire from step N3 with the other white wires from step N4. That's all, you're pretty much done! Turn on the power and test the light. If all is good, re-install the cowel and the light shade.

I would like a manual so that i may use my new computer, i am on a friends computer

I'm not aware of a Gateway NV500 Series line, of Notebook PC's.
I would like you to look on the bottom of your Gateway laptop, for the exact model number.

Are you referring to the Gateway NV5207U?
It's part of the Gateway NV50 Series. (One of the one's sold at Bestbuy?)

While I wait on the exact model number, let me give you the page for the User Manual for the NV52 Series.

Never mind! 17.79MB's of anything but where the Power On button is, and what the basic parts of the laptop are!

Here is the page to download the Gateway NV50 Series User Reference Guide,

On this page scroll down to - Gateway NV50 Series Reference Guide - English, and Left-click on it.
This is a PDF file download. (The computer you are on now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files)

It takes a few seconds to see the first page. It takes an additional 24 seconds or so, to fully download the file.
I advise letting the file fully download before looking through it. Otherwise you might break the download connection.
The first page is solid Black. The second page is solid White.

Should you not be aware of how to use a PDF file, and/or, want to burn off a copy to your computer, come back, and state so.

This reference guide shows the basic views of the laptop, the various function buttons, all about the Keyboard, and other details.

On this same Gateway Support page, is the Gateway Quick Start for Windows 7. It's listed at the bottom.

The Power On button is on the Right side of the laptop.
It's in the round hinge for the LCD screen.

The symbol on it is an international one. It's a circle with a line coming part way into the top. The top middle of the circle.

This is a video on Youtube, showing a user un-boxing his Gateway NV5207u. I included it to show more of where the Power On button is, and also that there is an Enable/Disable button for the Touchpad.

Would be kind of perplexing also, if you went to use the laptop, and couldn't get the Touchpad to work.

Once I have the exact model number we can proceed forward, if the Gateway NV5207u is not the laptop in question.

Printer prints more copies than indicated. Driver reinstalled multiple times. Problem is not that is follows previous print number.

The printer has performed correctly for two days now - first consecutive days since purchase 6 months ago. I did not do or change anything - have no idea why it is printing the correct number of copies now. I am not confident that this will be longlasting, however.
