All laptop has a small push switch near the hinges between the LCD to the base.

Make sure this switch is operating smoothly.

A malfunction or loose switch will not trigger the correct condition to the laptop.

EMachines eMD620 suddenly shutdown and not boot anymore


When this happened was the laptop overly hot? If the laptop's head got too high it could have shutdown to protect itself. It wouldn't boot until the heat had disparate. Sit you laptop aside for about 30 minutes and see if it will boot then. If it does you might want to check out a cool mat.

How often should a fan go on on a gateway? Mine is not running and computer freezes then I have to manually shutdown and turn back on


The fans, especially the one on top of the processor, should run all the time. If it is not there is a problem. The computer is shutting down to protect itself from overheating and burning out.

You need to get it repaired asap.

Laptop keeps shutting off by itself


When you encounter about this issue this is overheating problem maybe the CPU fan is not spinning and faulty already, you need to check the CPU fan and replace a new one.

Computers may not be smarter than people, but if they’re designed properly, they will shut themselves down before overheating to the extent that they do themselves damage. If the smart person keeps turning the notebook back on and figures out a way to foil the protection, the laptop is probably doomed.

Once a laptop shuts down for thermal event protection, it may refuse to power back up for a fixed period of time, five or ten minutes, or it may begin to boot and shut down immediately as soon as it boots to the point that it can figure out that its too hot.

The over-temperature protection is generally a BIOS rather than an operating system function, so one sign of an overheated laptop is one that shuts itself down while you’re using it and then refuses to boot as far as the operating system unless you leave it alone for an hour or so to cool down.

Unless you’ve been working in a very unfriendly environment, high temperatures, direct sunlight, etc, you should take even a single overheating shutdown as a warning to back up your data at the first opportunity and to give the cooling system a serious cleaning.

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.

I have a gateway ma7 laptop and press power and get nothing


When the computer is off, unplug the power cord from the laptop and then plug it back in. See if the charge light (lightning bolt symbol next to the led) comes on or turns green/blue. If it doesn't your power supply may not be working, even if the light on the supply is on. Second is the battery may be damaged. Remove the battery and see if you can power on at all.
If it boots with only the cord, the battery is bad/shorted forcing shutdown.
