Gateway lapton very slow and can't dowload anything?

My mother just bought this gateway laptop not to long ago. It's always been pretty fast and never had a problem, but then recently the power cord broke and the laptop didn't have enough power to turn on. Then we bought a new power cord and now for some reason the laptop has become surprisingly slow and won't download anything. It says the download is complete but no files have been downloaded. I even manually searched for recently downloaded files and nothing shows up.

Download " Getright" using www.google.com search
(we have used it it 99% good)
and install it .....may be it will help you in saving the download files....
about slowing ........
beforee doing close all applications
press ctrl+alt+del once and check for the performance tab
dont touch the keyboard and mouse

now your CPU should be using 2% approx (will be OK but not more if more bad)
and the PF usage should be approx 300 to 450 for Best performance mabe little more +50 will be OK but not more .(the lesser the PF usage the better the performance )
(so for getting the best performance in the system unistall all un wanted software's )

regards
let me know

Seems more like a problem with the power receptacle where you plug the power cord into the laptop.In order to fix this problem, you will need to disassemble the unit to get access to the motherboard & replace the power receptacle with a good one.

If it keeps connecting and disconnecting, it could be either the power adapter or the motherboard, but chances are it's the power adapter (and that's the cheaper solution too). You can usually get a new power adapter for $15 or $20, and that should take care of your problem.

I have a MT6705 laptop that works with new battery but wont charge or operate with power cord.


Hello,

Might be the power cord is faulty.If you have checked this with any other computer then inverter board on your main board is faulty or the dc in cable (the cable connecting power jack to mother board).

Thanks

Power Problem with A/C adaptor on my Gateway M-6816. The light on the a/c adaptor flashes green and the laptop wont charge. This is a new factory a/c cord.


A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective.

Gateway 830GM power


Could be power supply, unplug every thing from the board, remove all drives, cards everything but the mem. turn it on, if you get some beeps, add your Hard drive. The power supply may not have the guts it take to run all the peripherals it used to, this test will tell you if its the board or power supply.

MY GATEWAY LAPTOP SCREEN WENT BLACK AFTER 20 MIN OR MORE


I'm betting that you need a new "Inverter" board, especially if it's a Gateway 450ROG.
There is an inverter that Gateway used in several models that has a known defect.
Inverters are relatively inexpensive ,and easy to replace. You could ven do it yourself if you have a little skill at disassembly / re-assembly. Tell me the model number of your laptop and I can help you more

I have a Gateway laptop computer with XP. It originally had 512mbs of memory. I bought 2gigs of memory and installed it. It worked lightening-fast for about one day. Here is what happened: My wife...


I was initially confused about the addition of the Dell laptop in the plot before realizing what you are saying:

I think its your RAM. Did you ground yourself while removing or replacing the ram to prevent static shock from damaging the device or memory sticks?

If not, try getting another 512 stick (pretty cheap) from best buy for your gateway and testing it out. Save the receipt.

Also, post the model of your gateway laptop as some computers can not handle large amounts of ram. Most will only allow up to 2x the original amount.
