Yes, it could be the battery is no longer working correctly. To isolate this, try to test your laptop.

1. Remove the battery
2. Connect the power adapter to the laptop and turn the laptop ON.

Once the laptop work without any problem, then it's the battery. You may need to check if the laptop is still under the warranty and have the manufacturer replace the battery.

Have a great day!

I reinstalled winxp sp3 on a gateway 450 rog. I was able to install all the drivers except the network controller and it also won't recognize the wireless adapter, any thoughts or ideas?


I had the same problem.
The "Network Controller" in my case had to do with the wireless network driver on my 450ROG.
None of the drivers that are available for 450ROG on the Gateway Support site worked correctly.
Here's what I did to solve the problem:
1. Flip the computer over. 2. On the back, you may see a little module that says "Fitted with Intel WM3B2100 802.11b". That's the built-in wireless network card (had no idea this computer had one, I inherited it). 3. Go to the Intel support site:http://downloadcenter.intel.com/ 4. Do a search for the "WM3B2100" driver. 5. Download and install the driver.
Fixed it for me!
Full info about the Gateway 450ROG is available at: http://support.gateway.com/s/Mobile/Gateway/450ROG/3501353sp66.shtml This helped get me on the right track.

My Gateway 450ROG laptop/notebook has problems on start-up. Whenever you turn it on, the fan starts up, then the three lights blink and there is a tone heard immediately after that. But there is nothing...


Try hooking the Laptop to an external monitor like from your desktop pc,,you can see the connection on the back of the laptop,,When you do this, and you can see Windows on the Desktop monitor,,then this would indicate that your Back light on your Laptop screen may have burnt out .
