No it only comes with a wired lan (ethernet) car built in. If you want to you can easily add a wireless card to this unit. You have several options such as one of those USB wifi devices to a proper plug in card.

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.

Does anyone know how to disable the on-board video card on a Gateway DX 4840?

You shouldn't have to disable it. If you put an external video card in, it should automatically detect it. If I remember correctly, the Gateway BIOS setup isn't very versitile. var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_aa27a9a758674a1f85bf228374a43f0a(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); } var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_82787bbdfd2d41e79b0cc051f6668e01(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); }

How do i connect a tv to my gateway computer

Do you have an HDMI port in your computer? If you have, then it is easy to connect your computer to your tv making your tv an extended monitor in watching high definition audio and video.

If you want to connect your tv to your computer and watch tv shows, you need to install a TV Tuner Card in your cpu through a PCI or PCIE Card. Once installed, at the back of your cpu, you will have a co-axial port or a compatible port to connect your tv to your CPU.

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.
