Question about Gateway MT3705 Notebook

1 Answer

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 it's the integrated ATI 200M graphics hardware.

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.

Screen says to reboot, have no reboot device,unable to doanything to this computer, only 2 years old.have called my internet co.andmicrosoft. they tell me computer is atfault. please help


Gateway is responsible for any hardware issues with your computer. Neither the internet service provider nor the operating system manufacturer has anything to do with the hardware. Your Gateway has a power on button on its case. You may have to hold the button in for several seconds to shut it down but as you have not accessed the OS, that won't harm the hard drive. Once it's shut down, repress the power button to turn it back on and hopefully it will power up completely to the Windows or Linux OS you are using.

Gateway laptop stayed on blue screen and it says intalling updates but hasnt moved from 1 of 159


The only thing that you can do at this point is Shut it down. If this is windows 10 it will recover by itself when it powers back on. To shut it down you can hold the power button down for 10 seconds.

Laptop randomly shuts down and shows a blue screen saying


Make sure you don't have any unecessary programs loading up into windows when your laptop boots up. The next time the system randomly reboots check to see if the laptop feels a bit warmer then normal. Could be that your air vents are being blocked by dust. That would cause the air not to flow properly. Take a can of air and blow the vents clear so the air can flow properly and that would take care of the problem.

I would need some more information to completely help you. When you say you walk away and the pc shuts down and starts back up, does it close down (reboot) or does it go into screen saver / sleep mode? What button did you push for the power button light to blink? Have you put the PC into sleep / hibernation mode by pressing the power button once.

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
