Question about Gateway 505GR PC Desktop

1 Answer

Windows 2K and Outlook Express

I recently upgraded my Win95 to Win2K on my 1998 Gateway desktop. After doing so, I installed a wireless card and antenna. It works great. Here is the problem: When I bring up my internet email account, the SEND and REPLY selections are not present to be choices. In other words, I can read my email but I can't respond and if I write an email, I can't send it. Suggestions? Do I need more memory?

    Thank you, but this didn't help unfortunately. I live in a building w/ free wireless. I have no idea what it is. My computer is configured to log onto earthlink. It does exactly what is supposed to do. However, when on the email portion of earthlink, I can receive emails, but have no option to either send nor reply. Hopefully this info will help with a solution.

    Luckily, I fixed the problem myself by pure dumb luck. I tried to re-install my virus protection, but it wouldn't install unless my internet explorer was version 6.0 or above. So, I updated. Upon doing this, the "send", "reply" and other functions appeared on my email. Problem solved. I do thank you for your concerns,

    You didn't specify what email service you are using (outlook, yahoo, etc).

Nope..it's in the settings, under your Network connections. You may need to configure those to your new wireless carrier's email server approach.

    so, you're logged into earthlink webmail, application, then..and you're saying that there is NO option for sending from their site? If that's the case, it's a settings issue on your email account, NOT your computer, at all.

Im trying to disable the on board graphics card so i can install then new on i just bought. i have a gateway GT4024 and the onboard graphics card is an ATI Radeon Xpress 200 series


Your board has ATI integerated graphics, no need to remove. You would upgrade by adding a PCIe express card in slot. Do you have such a card? If you need installation instructions, let me know at "add a comment"

How to download outlook express to send mails


You can't really download Outlook Express as it is part of Windows XP.
If it is not there, you can add it though the Add/Remove Programs option in the Control Panel. Select the Windows Components icon in the left-hand pane.

In Vista Outlook Express is replaced by Windows Mail, and in Windows 7 there is no email program, but you can download Windows Live Mail.

I reloaded vista and now have microsoft outlook but want outlook express and can not find it on my PC, (gateway GT5228)


Microsoft Outlook Express does not have its own setup program. Outlook Express is distributed as the mail client for Microsoft Internet Explorer. The Internet Explorer setup program includes the option to install Outlook Express. So, download IE latest version and install OE in it.

Best video card upgrade for Gateway GT4024???? Stock computer....except ram upgrade to 2x1gb....want to increase the video handling from the slow onboard video


Your upgrade options for a better video card are really dependent on how much you want to spend.  You have a PCI express x16 slot which is what your are going to use.  Visit www.newegg.com and you can look up video cards by manufacturer, memory amount, and even filter it by how much you are willing to spend.  Here's a link at newegg for "the best video card upgrade":
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161203

Since there is a newer PCI 2.0 Express connection on newer computers, you can get your video cards cheaper now.  You will notice a huge improvement with any video card you choose since onboard video is about the worst.  Just remember to go into the device manager and disable onboard video card after you install the new video card.  
Good Luck

Our Outlook Express has vanished from our computer. Can you tell us why and what we can do to re-install it. Thank you, Norman Crites


Click start, Click RUN, type: msimn.exe, Press <ENTER> outlook express should open. If it does, then you can create a new shortcut on the desktop by Right Clicking the blank desktop, Click NEW, Click Shortcut, type the path: "C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe" then finish the wizard.

If msimn.exe give an error, the go to add/remove programs, Click Add/remove Windows Components, Check the checkbox next to Outlook Express, Click Next and finish the wizard (You may be prompted for your Windows XP CD)

If you are using Windows Vista, it doesn't include Outlook Express, Vista uses Windows Mail for the default mail handler.

I'm trying to set up a Linksys Wireless A G card with an old Gateway Solo 5300 laptop. I use the same card with both a Dell Inspiron 8100 and 1501 laptops without problems. My network is setup using...


The old standby solution was used: I removed the card from the laptop and rebooted the computer without it. Then I re-installed it. I then checked the configuration and saw that it had not changed the network encryption to WPA-Personal from WEP - even though the card had shown that it had. So, I changed it again, and voila! - it worked. Can't believe that after working with these damn things for so many years, I can still get tripped up by the simplest solution...
