Question about Gateway GT5676 Desktop PC

Open Question

Hey I have a gateway gt5676 desktop pc, when i am watching a youtube video or dvd (high resolution) my computer kind of stutters, making a very fast dodododoooo noise, and than blanks out with the screen turning black. but the PC is still on and i cant do anything except turn it off manually.... what can cause this type of problem? i have my computer hook up to a 26inch monitor displaying 1152 x 648 and if i go higher the problem occurs more frequently... which makes me think the ATI 3200HD sucks....

SOURCE: No Video Signal

Try resetting the bios. On the motherboard there is a battery that looks like a watch battery. Remove the battery, then replace it again. (make sure the computer is unplugged from the wall socket when you do this)

Does this work?

Boot into safe mode and see if you can either roll back the driver restore the computer to the date right before you downloaded it.  the link is for directions on how to boot into safe mode.   Another option , if you have on board graphisc alos is to hook up the monitor to the onboard  turn it on in BIOS and change the driver for the card using the onther graphics.

SOURCE: Delay in Monitor display once the system goes in sleep mode

Instead of sleep mode, tyr hibernate. It is generally faster except the whole computer shuts down. When you power back up, you're exactly where you were. Mine takes about 30 seconds.

You may notice just under the lower right coner of the video window, some videos have an option to “Watch In High Quality”. By default, these videos will play as a 320×240 FLV file
at 320Kb/s. Check out this sample:

The user could click on this link to “Watch in High Quality” which will reload the video and play the MP4 version , which is 480×360 at 512Kb/s. By adding &fmt=18 to the end of the URL, you’ll make the URL you share with others bring them right to the high quality version. Here’s the same video in the High Quality view:

What else are you gaining besides increased video resolution? The video is compressed with H.264 compression, so you get better video even at the same data rate. You also go from a low fidelity mono audio feed to stereo @ 44.1Khz sample rate.

&fmt=6 increases the resolution from 320×240 to 448×336, Flash 7 video @ 900Kbps; audio @ 44.1KHz 96Kbps Mono CBR.

&fmt=18 increases the resolution to 480×360, H.264 video @ 512Kbps; audio @ 44.1KHz 128Kbps Stereo. Note, the bandwidth may be lower, but it’s utilizing a more efficient compression codec .

&fmt=22 increaes the resolution to 720p HD video if the source was uploaded at a high enough resolution.

I can't get a signal from my desktop to my hdtv when I use the hdmi port. The desktop is a gateway GT5676

First, make sure the computer port is working in the computer by going to the device management ICON in control panel.

Once you check that, make sure you have set up your preferences in the TV to allow "INPUT" from the HDMI port. If you have more than one HDMI ports make sure you have the correct number listed. This is a common error. It would be the same if you are running a DVR with an HDMI cable, you need to set up the TV. Normally you hit the "INPUT" button on the remote control and a list pops up. Scroll over with the arrows to the correct HDMI port. You will likely need to do this again to get back to the cable input once you are finished with the computer connection.

Is it powering off, or is the display just going black? Check to see if the keyboard is still active - can you see the Caps Lock light go on/off as you toggle the key?

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.
