Please reinstall the operating system on the new drive you kept and install ALL drivers. Even after installing all the drivers if you face any problems, there might be some other problem might be present in your laptop.
Hope this helps to you. .

Need 2 add more mem


Hi BBrown,

There is an excellent step-by-step guide here

http://www.computermemoryupgrade.net/installing-laptop-memory.html

However, you NEED to find out what exact model of Gateway laptop you have to make sure that the RAM modules that you buy will work with your laptop since there are physical limitations to make sure you don't install the incorrect types.

For example, there's SDRAM (associated with Pentium III laptops from 10 years ago) and three generations of Dual Data-Rate memory (DDR for short).

DDR3 would be used in current laptops (maybe up to 2 years old), DDR2 (2-6 years old) and of course, Pentium4 era DDR as well,

Hope the helps

Hi there. I am a RAM rookie. I have GAteway MX7118. are there two memory slots or one. It comes with 512 does that mean there are two slots and I can add a 1GB for A total of 1.5GB ?


Hi, defending on your cpu board usualy there are two slots, also if your board capable to 1 gigabytes memory, if your memory is DDR u can add 1 GB up . if your memory is SD you cannot add higher than 712 MB. if your memory is 512 and you want to add 1GB the total should be 1.5 you are correct in your calculation. thanks

No light, no up, nothings. power nothing please i need help. battery 100%


So the first thing to do is to plug it in so you can eliminate the battery as a potential problem, but if that does nothing, things are not so good.

If the laptop makes no sound at all, there are really only two pieces you can fix or replace, the HD and the RAM. The Ram is the easiest and will cost you about $20.

The manual to replace the ram is here:
http://support.gateway.com/s/Mobile/Q106/Blade/8511418.pdf

The ram itself is here:
http://www.memoryupgrade.pro/1gb-gateway-mx6448-memory-1x-1gb-qnd1smerzztae8-pc2-4200-ddr2-533mhz-so-dimm-upgrade.html

It is possible it is the hard drive which you can replace for about $40, but at that point, you may as well buy a new computer, because usually it is only your data you care about on a computer over 3 years old.

...you might also try unscrewing the case. It is possible, but unlikely, you have a simple wire break in the power button or a weak contact in that switch. It is unlikely, but possible.

Good luck.

How to install more ram


Most laptops have a small hatch on the underside, usually held closed by a single screw. Should be a piece of cake adding more RAM, remembering that there is probably only one slot, so your original one meg will have to be taken out before you add new RAM chips.

MT3705 Gateway, what motherboards will work with this laptop. I want to upgrade this laptop, so i want to get a motherboard able to really max out my ram but still use this chip set and everything else on...


You don't get different mainboards for laptops.....sorry. It's not like desktop pc's where pretty much any mainboard will fit. And even if you could, it's not really going to improve things, as you are using the same speed cpu. Your laptop has 2 ram slots. That's the most you will see on laptop mainboards.

Adding ram is probably the best bet. That laptop shipped with 1 gig of ram.....which is not enough for Vista. I bet it's quite slow. Vista wants 2 gig of ram to be happy, and 4 gig to really motor along. Laptop ram is cheap for that machine, so check it out. Ram is not expensive, and will give you an immediate, very noticeable improvement in performance.

Hope this helps. Post a comment and let me know how you make out

Question regaurding two different gateway laptops


Hi!

I compared them, the on you have is a good laptop, the one you consider to by is not.
The one you have has on mobile prosessor 2,7ghz, the 450 has an pentium4, that will get that laptop warmer and it will consume mote electricity

The 7320 have 512mb ram and you can upgrade it to 1,5gb ram if you want. The 450 have 512mb ram and thats the maximum it can have.

The 7320 has an 15.4 in TFT active matrix 1280 x 800 ( WXGA ) screen. The 450 has 14.1 in TFT active matrix 1024 x 768 screen.

The 7320 has Intel Extreme Graphics 2 Shared video memory . The 450 has ATI Mobility Radeon M6-P 32.0 MB

In my opinion, the only thing thats better on the 450 is the videocard, and that just a little bit better.

So my advice is..DONT buy that 450, there are better laptops out there for a good price.

I hope the info i gave you helped
If you have further questions, just ask me and i will do my best to help you

Good luck
Nic

Upgrade?


Generally you can add more RAM, However, there are too many details that are needed about your system in order determine if an upgrade can be done.

Suggest you call Gateway Support.

Installed new ram and now processor speed is 1/2 of what is was?


Hello Brian -

Is the new RAM you installed the same as what you took out? Are they both PC2700?

Is your laptop running on battery when you're testing to make sure you CPU speed is accurate? The laptop usually ramps down the CPU speed if it is being run off of just battery. Plug it in if this was the case.

Also, the Gateway and eMachines laptops I have encountered have all been notorious for displaying the incorrect CPU speed at times.

I would suggest putting your new RAM in, make sure the laptop is plugged in, and boot it up. This time, let it idle for about 10 minutes and then check your CPU speed to see if it has updated correctly.
