Question about Gateway GM5664 Desktop PC

1 Answer

TV tuner/IR cable

I have a brand new Gateway GM5664. I've connected my cable to the tower. I then went into TV setup. The computer found the cable connection, but then said I needed an IR cable. Maybe it's just me, but I don't see any other cable or boxes to connect. What exactly is an IR cable, was it supposed to come with the computer and how can I get the TV connection to work? Thanks!

    i just want to know what is the need of an IR cable... for what do we need it

  • tgrigg Mar 11, 2009

    I have TV reception through a "set-top" box. When I go in to set up the guide for satellite it tells me I need to connect the IR cable. I have it, it came with the computer but can't figure out where to hook it up or what it's for.

    This is the external IR blaster and cable for the media card reader. The blaster permits the IR signal received from the remote control through the media card reader to be retransmitted to the selected component in a different location, determined by the length of the cable. The IR blaster cable can be identified by the single black band on the cable connector and the red transmitter on the other end of the cable.
    Connect the cable to the jack located on the back of the computer labeled




    Blaster 1





    This is the external remote IR receiver and cable for the media card reader. The remote receiver provides for the IR signal sent from the remote control to be received in a location other than the media card reader, determined by the length of the cable. The IR receiver cable can be identified by the three black bands on the cable connector and the black receiver on the other end of the cable.
    Connect the cable to the jack located on the back of the computer labeled IR Receiver.
    these cables set up the channels. put the other end of these cbles (red & black) on the infrared location on the setbox (front).

I can not get 7.1 HDMI audio output on my Gateway GM5664 running Windows 7.


While DVI and HDMI offer compatible video lines, the DVI connection offers support for two analog audio channels only and cannot transport data packets required for digital audio. You will not get anything beyond 2.1 audio across the dongle.

If you have a HDMI connector on your graphics board and your external hardware, try to use a proper HDMI cable.

Gateway computer LX series need to recycle power before it will go into post.


The only reason I can see in a no POST issue is because of a defective hardware in your computer.

1. Try to remove all the cables at the back of your computer tower and power cycle it for 15 seconds.
2. Plug the power cord back in and the monitor cable only then start your computer.
3. Put the devices one-by-one to your computer tower until you see the faulty device.
4. If no faulty device detected after connecting all the connection at the back of your computer tower.
5. Try to open up your computer tower and reseat your Video card, memory, HD cables and CPU as well.

Let's investigate if the problem will reoccur.

Well your second hard drive did go belly up so what you need to do is get a new hard drive because from what you have explained to me it's fried. Now one other way that you can try and get it back on there is to boot up your computer but before it goes to the windows screen go into bios and select boot options and make sure that it's checked as a secondary if it already is then you need to go get a new hard drive which runs about $25.00.

You need to connect the antenna cable. This is called COAXIAL cable.. On the back of your TV, unscrew the antenna cable and connect it on the back of your TV tuner. Re-scan frequency on the software you are using.

Look in the back of the Gateway where you currently have the video cable connected. If there are two connectors, (Side by Side) there than disconnect & re-connect to the other. Your display should come up. Don't be fooled. Most Pc's that have no display on their monitor is not a monitor problem but a computer problem.
