Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a gateway (GM5472) desktop and it has had problems playing games (Company of heros; SimCity Societies; Sid meirer's trains). Vista will stop the game after a few minutes and say that there is a problem with the game. I have added 2 gigs(4 gigs total now) of memory and added a Nvidia Geforce 8400GS to help correct the problem, but it didn't work.

My computer Gateway model GM5472 was running a windows update and all of a sudden went blue screen then shut down. Would not come back on when turned power but on you just here some beeps. what should I...

Beeps signal a hardware failure. Disconnect all disks and remove all other boards and try to start the desktop like that - if you can't go into the BIOS then there is a problem with either the memory (try another one) , the processor (try another one) or the mainboard - in that case you will have to replace it.

I need to diable the onboard video card before installing a PCI-E 2.0 graphic card. From what I have read, it's possible this is done automatically, through BIOS, or by a jumper setting. I never received...

It is an option in the BIOS under "Advanced Bios Features". Set Initial Display to PCI Express VGA card. Your options may be slightly different due to different BIOS.

Flashplayer stops and starts on gateway

How fast is your Internet connection?

Often, a "slow" connection cannot download fast-enough to support "streaming" from an online source.

Start playing the video, and press "pause", and wait one or two minutes. Then, press "play", and you should get a "smooth" playback.
