Question about Gateway P7908u FX Notebook

Pulled out media bar ribbon cable along with connector

Hi,
I tried to clean the gpu fan on my gateway fx p-7805u and in the process pulled out the cable connecting media bar and power button to motherboard. Along with cable came the zif connector (the black-white plastic part) from motherboard making the laptop useless since I cannot turn it on. After a day or so, I don't know how but I managed to turn it on, just by plugging it to charger. I need to recreate that event so that I can use my laptop again. Please don't say send it to expert or contact the tech support since that is not helping!

Then fix it without there help,
if you are able, get your manual if you can, it may show you how.
But i doubt it, they dont want people messing about inside laptops, there are no/or very little user servicable parts in there

The connectors are usually different sizes and will only plug in one way. So they are not that difficult. They are usually marked also and color coded.

I've had a similar problem on my Dell Studio laptop. Windows Update will force an update to the graphics card driver, and the result will be full of bugs. To fix, consult the graphics card's manufacturer website (Intel, nVidia, AMD) and download the correct driver for your graphics card. Uninstall the current driver using Device Manager (Windows Vista/7 just type in "Device Manager" to the start menu search. Expand the Display Adapters section. Right click on your graphics card and select uninstall.) You should then be prompted to restart your computer, do so. Once your computer has rebooted, install the new driver downloaded from the manufacturer's website, after it installs you should again be prompted to restart, do so. Once rebooted, problem should be solved.

If I helped you, please give me a 4 thumbs up rating. If you still need more assistance, comment back and I'll be happy to continue helping.

You didn't mention what it is but I'm assuming you are talking about a Gateway laptop. It sounds like overheating problem of the graphics card. 2 reasons would normally dirt and dust in the heat sink and fan and the second reason a faulty graphics card. I would first get an air blower and dust off the air vent see if any dust comes out. Try to also place the laptop on an open surface not a carpet or sofa which may block the laptop air ways.

My motherboard is over heating temp upto 80 to 90 & fanspeed 3229 rpm what is solution


Good morning! It depends on your processor and GPU (video graphics). Every processor has its own temperature ranges and operating limits, 50 C is typical for a normal Pentium or E, Q type Intel duo or quad core. AMD can run a little higher around 55 C. The Intel quads tend to run cooler when you have a 45 nm tech processor like a Q9400 or above. Anything on a 65 nm processor is going to run hotter. AMD tends to pull more watts (Intel around 95 Watts), while the Phenoms can pull up to 140 watts, since they are still on a 65 nm die. 80-90 C sounds high, and probably have either measured the temperature of the GPU when maxing out on games. Common, playing games stresses the GPU fan. 80-90 C is NOT a good temperature which means that we have an under rated GPU heatsink fan assembly. Take a look at air cooling in the chassis and make sure an adequate cooling, no pockets of hot air sitting around the GPU, clean the case with a vacuum cleaner of all dust, move cables, ribbons and other things out of the way of the graphics card and install one or more case fans if you don' have any. Better keep ONE SIDE of the case OFF and in the summer time use a small desk fan with a clamp on it and clamp it to the chassis of the case (the bar that runs on the top side of the case that holds the PSU in place). You might consider taking the shield off of the graphics card (maximum PC mag had an article several months ago on how to do this), remove the heatsink and fan assembly to the GPU and replace it with a better GPU heatsink/Fan assembly. Try to pull the VGA card and take a look at it and see if you can disassemble the shield with a few screws and take a look at the gpu and see if you can install a different heatsink/fan assembly. There are kits out there that will do it for you. Best regards
