Question about Computers & Internet

My computer won't work

I have had my computer for just over 6 months and already I have had to talk to the gateway people about it twice. It started out that I wasn't able to run it for more than a hour then it would shut off on me and go to a blue screen. Now I can't even turn it on. It makes a really weird clicking sound like it wants to but it just doesn't have enough juice. It is again starting to shut off in the middle of things again even when it is plugged in.

These are only a few things that are going on with my computer.

Most clicking sound are made by failing harddrive... check with gateway people again if it is still under warranty and ask them to replace the drive or fix it.

fyi -- if it is really the hard drive that is making the clicking noise... there is a big chance that you will loose your data

2 Lines on my Gateway laptop when I turn on my computer


To be honest, I would have Compaq repair it. If it's only 6 months old it is under warranty, USE the warranty. It sounds like the screen has a short or the cable does. Make Compaq fix it.

Laptop Gateway mx8711


Gateway laptop is really ****.
I bought Gateway MX8711 in March 2007, after 6 months i use it...the hard disk failed.
Gateway replaced a new Hitachi hard disk for me but not more than 8 months and it failed again.
Gateway told me that i have no more warranty because the repair warranty is only 90 days.
I bought this laptop and use it not more than 2 years, the hard disk was failed twice.
Usually Hard disk manufacturer provided 3 years warranty for the hard disk. The manufacturer year of the hard disk is May 2007....they should able to help because the har disk not more than a year being used...but they don't. This is really bad customer service and not fair to the buyer.
I will not buy any Gateway products anymore....i swear.
