clean your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor specifically around your central processing unit making sure there is no moisture in the air line

as dust will cause a lot of static which will make a computer overheat and cause lots of problems

hope this helps

Gateway laptop keeps shutting down


If there are no apparent software failure symptoms that are causing this, my best guess would be an overheating shutdown. Many laptops will get clogged with dirt because their intake fans are on the bottom and many users place them on laps, floors, and surfaces that allow dust and dirt to be sucked in easily. These clog up the heatsink that cools the processor. The unit has safeguards that shut down the unit if the processor gets too hot. Many units can be easily cleaned, but many others require a complicated tear-down to do this.

Computer keeps shutting itself down


Make sure it is in a well ventilated area that does not restrict airflow. It might be overheating or the fan on the CPU is going.

I have a gateway MT3707 pc notebook. It randomly freezes (no blue screen) & I have to hold the power button down to shut down & reboot. Is this a driver issue or hardware failure... I'm thinking...


This could be a sign that your laptop is overheating. If you touch the laptop while it is running & you find it too hot, make sure that the fan is running properly & that the air ways are not blocked.
You can blow compressed air into the cooling vents of the fan. If you notice clouds of dust coming out, then it might be a good idea to disassemble the laptop, clean the fan & air ways, & reassemble it back. If the fan has failed & is no longer running, it might need to be replaced.

If none of this solves the problem, or is not the case, then you might have a bad motherboard.

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.

Gateway mt3707


the inverter or backlight is on its way out, it won't bother the operating system but you can see nothing, with most inverters its the coil that goes which is fairly inexpensive to fix, if it is the inverter, thats a lot more expensive, what you can do for time being is plug an exteral monitor into the laptop so you use it.

hope this helps
