Your BIOS battery might be down. Becoz your board clock needs power from the board battery. So changing the battery on board will fix your problem.

Thanks

Clock resetting and power button malfunctioning on my Gateway NV53A laptop.


Replace the CMOS battery. In the Control Panel, Power Options, set to High Performance, open Advanced power settings, set Sleep and Hibernate to Never, Adjust other settings to your preference. Set Screen Saver Time. Always turn off the computer and unplug when not in use, it will prolong life and a reboot every day will reset the computer. I would say you have a issue with the outlet connections/plug. If you have a multimeter you can verify.

Inspiron laptop clock occasionally reverts to July 2008


There is a small 3 volt battery on the motherboard which is the backup for the circuit clock .So if the battery has gone low in voltage the clock will be reset as the CMOS setting will be reset. The clock will then go back to the time of the laptop set-up which is in july 2008.
Replacing and then correcting the CMOS set- up on booting will set the clock to work to the current time/date.

All usb ports on my gateway laptop aren't working... I've reinstalled the drivers several time, still no progress there... checked system BIOS all settings are correct, dont kno what else to do


http://support.gateway.com/s/Manuals/Mobile/8510913.pdf
this shows the user guide But I did not see anything for USB specific trouble shooting.

Other wierd things I have sceen...check ALL USB ports to make sure that they are not broken or have something stuck in them and are shorting out, can cause a MB functions to expire. Try a lighted item in the ports, is the say USB mouse lighting up? If so then this is a software issiue.

Turn off all usb functions and try rebooting then turn off and try them again only turn them on this time. You mentioned that you checked bios setting but did you also check to see if the bios needed upgraded?

I just replaced my ac adapter for my gateway lap top mx 6931 thinking that was the problem for why my screen flickers when i plug my ac adpater in to charge my battery. The battery wont charge unless i...


Chances are the power jack in the laptop that is to blame. It's common for the solder connections holding the jack to the motherboard to break because of the power plug flexing. One way to check is to keep the laptop steady and wiggle the power plug. If the power indicator flickers, that's what's wrong.

The good news is that this is usually repairable. The bad news is that not all service shops are willing to get into this level of repair. The motherboard needs to be removed from the computer so the connections can be repaired. Sometimes the board needs some mechanical repair as well, and occasionally the only way to fix the trouble is to replace the board. Most shops want to replace the motherboard right off.

Call around to shops in your area and see who's willing to try soldering the board. That is usually all that's needed to get you going again.

Wlan is disconnected. How do I get it conected please. Thank you Julie


If it is showing that it is "Disconnected" that simply means you are not connected to a wireless network. To connect to a wireless network simply double click on the wireless icon by the clock (bottom right side, looks like a computer monitor with waves) and select the wireless network you wish to connect to.

9800M GTS gpu instability in gateway p-7805u fx laptop....


Maybe a little late of a response, however... Ive had the p-7805u for quite a while. I had the same problem which I noticed that was triggered specially by old games rather than demanding games like Crysis. In fact, the computer never gave me a problem on the most demanding gpu applications, but crashed within minutes in games like Warcraft III. The screen showed artifacts, crashed and then recovered giving me the "driver has recovered" message, and ultimately and almost always hard froze after a couple minutes. I was getting really frustraded, even got an rma for warranty service, but didnt send it in because i couldnt survive without a computer at the time being.
I started monitoring my gpu clocks. Almost all gpu's, being more dramatic in mobiles, lower their clocks when they are idling. I finally noticed that the computer started artifacting and crashing when the clocks lowered for idling and lower energy consumption purposes. Simple solution: download desktop drivers from www.latopvideo2go.com , any in the 19x.xx branch, and use their modified inf so that you can install it in your laptop. In the nvidia control panel go to 3d settings and under global change "Power management mode" to "prefer maximum performance". This doesnt allow the gpu to lower its clocks, solves the problem permanently =). Ive run crash free for months, and battery life is only lowered by maybe 10 minutes, which you can always prevent by changing the setting when you plan to go on battery.
