Question about Compaq NX6110 TFT XGA Notebook

1 Answer


Good evening, I wonder if you can help. My sister's Gateway laptop suddenly closed down after using her webcam because it kept signing out all the time, the programme was OOVO - so she closed it down. Once webcam was closed down she found that she could do nothing and subsequentlytook the plug out but again it would not shut down, eventually she took the battery out. Since then she is able to switch it on but it does not fully boot. It stops at a point where it gives several options: restart in safe mode or recovery etc., none of these have worked. But after pushing a few buttons lol - I found a message that informed us that there may be a problem with the driver. I haven't been able to get that message back up as it was a fluke, the truth be known. Can you please give us any suggestions in how to get it up and running or should we just give up.

Many thanks for your kind assistance.

Most likely your windows installation is corrupt or your harddrive is damaged. I would recommend takeing the laptop to a local pc repair shop / center for analysis. Shouldnt cost much. And it will save both of you alot of time and energy.

I asume the laptop is constantly in that loop.. you put power on that thing comes up, it tryes to load but fails, it starts up again and the same text come up blaablaa. Then thats probably the problem.

Laptop wont come on

Look at the label on the back of the charger for this Gateway 3701. You should see something like this:
  • Input: 100-240V, 50/60Hz
  • Output: 19V 3.42A
If the one you have is not the correct one, you can buy one online (E Bay) for less than $15.

Can I change myGateway MX8711 screen to a screen with a web cam?

You can use a screen with a webcam, if your motherboard supports a webcam.
The screen with a webcam would have an additional plugs, that need to be connected to the motherboard.
I suggest that you buy a used computer with webcam instead.

Best of Luck

I've got gateway nv52 with Win vista ultimate, I download the driver for the webcam from the gateway website but still not working and says webcam not found!! I even scan for hardware changes in device...

does the webcam show up in device manager with a yellow exclaimation mark? If it isn't in there at all, I wonder if it can be disabled in the BIOS perhaps?

Gateway W340UA laptop - no display...

Sometimes it di happen , specialy in most laptop which is being used more frequently and longer usage, the advisable use of a laptop is atleast 2 to 4 hours then shut it off and have cool down for 30 minutes to one hour then you can used it again, unless you got a support inclined base for laptop with support ventilating fan to help down minimize the heat accumulated during the usage.

have it check your video card with the proper technician, but first try to cool down your unit and try to open it again, and if still does'nt work then have it check by the service center

Laptop Gateway mx8711

Gateway laptop is really ****.
I bought Gateway MX8711 in March 2007, after 6 months i use it...the hard disk failed.
Gateway replaced a new Hitachi hard disk for me but not more than 8 months and it failed again.
Gateway told me that i have no more warranty because the repair warranty is only 90 days.
I bought this laptop and use it not more than 2 years, the hard disk was failed twice.
Usually Hard disk manufacturer provided 3 years warranty for the hard disk. The manufacturer year of the hard disk is May 2007....they should able to help because the har disk not more than a year being used...but they don't. This is really bad customer service and not fair to the buyer.
I will not buy any Gateway products anymore....i swear.
