Gateway MT6840 unexpectedly shut down and wouldn't


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Garmin Nuvi 1350LMT Nuvi 1350 W map update error


Run the Garmin WebUpdater once more and apply any updates. Consider downloading and installing the lifetime map update to the computer and then use the Garmin Mapquest or Basecamp computer program to send the map data to the nuvi. Overall, it takes a little longer, but is better than trying to download directly to the GPS itself. If you're not having luck, it will probably be wise to contact Garmin Tech Support. It would be wise to mention the funky "once / month" GPS reboot issue with Garmin at this time too.

Needs updating


This is not as easy as it seems. I tried to do that when I registered my new unit. In the dowload process (attached to my PC via USB), the site told me I need some special software to manage the download. It looked like some Microsoft product I never heard of. As it finished installing the vector software, the Garmin update maps never got downloaded. Each time I tried, my PC slowed down, to actually crashing ! Rebooting told me it can only come back on in the Safe mode (do drivers). So my only savior was to Reset to a previous date, when all went well. Boy, was that nasty ! Now, my PC runs Vista Premium Home edition using Explorer. I never was happy with Vista.
Your free map Update is good for 60 days from use of unit. So, do not delay.
I still have not updated my Garmin, but should soon.
Try their https://my.garmin.com/maps/nuMaps.htm page to see if you qualify.
Maybe your PC will accept the software to load the new maps into your Garmin. Just be ready to reset your computer to a previous user date, so you can fix your Crash.
PS - I had no time yet to alert Garmin Support of this issue. I enjoyed using it in Hawaii. It really helped.

I now have 2010 lower 48 states on cd. Ihave tryed again but still wont download. I have been told i need to try another computer. Has any one heard of this?


oh yes this is common, some just do not play nice with everyone else.but also check, your cable. also must have latest program software, & updates. of course do everything as Administrator. Sometimes it will do it, if you unplug USB, go to device manager, locate the USB, layer, now remove and uninstall everything, there. now reboot, next desktop, wait a bit, say few mins, and now, plug in your USB GPS, it may just work now. First ensure you have latest Garmin software, down load, without, using the GPS, and install again if required, now plug in and try again.

Plugged in the 1TB WD My Book Essential into my Dell Dimension 3100 running windows xp and the screen goes blue and I get a error stating "Bad_Pool_Header"


here's a solution I found on google:

BSOD the Solution:

Did you install Service Pack 2? Are you now suffering from the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD)?. Here is the solution. I have spent 4 days hunting down the cause of my machine crashing and have finally cracked it. Maybe other people have a different cause than mine so my solution may not work for everyone.

After installing SP2 I suffered many crashes. In particular the Screen would turn blue and display a message starting "Bad_Pool_Header". And ending with STOP: 0X000000019....

Then my four day hunt for the cause started.

BSOD Solution
Basically I found two causes of the BSOD.
Cause 1: Corrupted file or folder.
Cause 2: Microsoft Indexing Service

Possibly these two causes are linked.

Solution for Cause 1
Onen up Explore (right click the start button), and expand your directory tree, starting from the C: drive. Click on each folder in turn and see if any cause the BSOD to appear. If so, reboot, and simply attempt to copy the folder, and then delete it.

Solution for Cause No 2
Switch off Microsoft's indexing service. You can do this by clicking the start button, select "Run", then type "msconfig", then select the "Services" TAB, scroll down to the Indexing Service and Switch it off. Reboot your computer, and good luck - maybe it will work, It solved the problem for me.

At first I thought I must have a third party software or hardware conflicting with SP2, but even after I had disconnected the internet, switched off all items in the startup TAB of msconfig, was still getting the BSOD. I tried surface scans, chkdsk, scan disk etc all to no avail. I tried defragmenting the disk, but the frequent crashes may have made things worse.

I discovered the computer was now crashing after about 7.5 minutes of being switched on. It did not matter whether anyone logged in or not.

Finally I went to msconfig (Start Run, MSCONFIG) and switched off "process System.ini files, Load System files, Load Startup Items. And the comuter stopped crashing. So then I added the item back one by one until I discovered the Microsoft Corporation Indexing Service which was causing the crash. I switched it off and switched everything else back on and AT LAST... No more BSOD

up grade to 7, the other 2 have no support,
However, the HP site still has it , while the clock ticks, (the 10 year clock is about to delete support.
so get the software while still there{hint})

see below, ive guessed XP-32b ( worst case)
see this, then see the item, software solutions (21)
then see SOFTPAQ? "HP Softpaq, down load manager"
using the correct OS< get this HP software , install it. then
run it and it will load all the correct drivers to you PC like magic. (HP is best, and this is one prime example of best)
SOFTPAQ,
then play docking?


BSOD means.
XP , full of viruses, as all are now, avoid XP like plague. (OS corruption can BSOD super easy...)
Memory bad, try running it on 1 stick, at at time.
DMM sticks.(aka, RAM)
XP with wrong drivers loaded. BSOD.

same with VISTA it too is DEAD OS, now.

Bsod 0xdeaddead. restart and when it wants to.


No programs added. Microsoft updates can crash to BSOD 0xdeaddead 0x00000000 0x00000000 0x00000000 0x00000000. When I restart it gos to bsod above. Will be working on a file and it will crash to the bsod above. Not every Microsoft update will crash in the process of installing but some have. No new hardware or software has been added for sometime now. Streets and Trips has been loaded and taken off several times because it will not run with out a startup error. Everything other than that works fine.
