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

I just bought my gateway laptop a month ago an some of the keys quit workin any suggestion ?


Is/was it brand new? If so, you need to get warranty service.Sometimes there are manufacturer defects that will cause strange problems sooner or later.
Look for your model number on the Gateway Support website.Gateway may know about it and may have a solution fir you.

Can laptop charger pin be fixed


I had the same issue with a Gateway we use for streaming video to our TV. I actually sent it back to gateway as it was still under their 3 year warrenty buy some 2 or 3 weeks.

While some of their parts fail on a regualr basis (DVD drives) I have to say their service is right up there in my book. You can get to a tech pretty much on the first ring to support. They pay shipping of a carton for you to send in the laptop.

While a really good technical person could replace the part on the laptop, letting Gateway deal with it for you is the best solution. That port is soddered to the mother board and that has to be a perfect joint since it is higher voltage than in other parts of the motherboard.

Keep me posted.

M6307 Gateway Laptops overheats and shuts down


Have you called Gateway? This is definitely a mother board or CPU problem, both probably caused by a slow acting fan. Gateway should replace these.

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.

Can't access www.gateway.com


to be honest my friend i cant tell why gateway would block ip addresses and i was trying to log in using FTP but seems there is no luck they wont give anonymous log ins

so i guess your only way is to depend on smone who can dowload the drivers for u and then send them to u

may be u can try to download them from a netcafe if possible

sorry my friend thats all i can think about for now

cheers

You should remove unneccesary programs cause they can cause your computer to slow down. Run a virus check because it might also be infected with these critters..
