There are two different memory modules for that series.You can determine which you need by the chipset for you machine.If you have a Via VN800 Chipset You need the 1024MB-DDR333, 333MHz, PC2700, 200p SODIMM, 2.5v. If you have the NVIDIA nForce 410 Chipset The you need the 1024MB-533MHz DDR2-533 PC2-4200, 200p SODIMM, 1.8v Hope this clears up your problem

Does your system meets the minimum requirements for those game? If yes and if you don't play games and your system hangs too, do you get a blue screen with error codes on it? (e.g. 0x0000000E), if so it could possibly be a possible driver conflict and/or a hardware problem. Try running this at a command prompt, if your on vista run it as administrator (start > all programs > accessories > command prompt > right click > run as administrator), then on the black box, type /sfc scannow. Works on XP/Vista. It should fix any corrupt system files. Try also updating the drivers for your video card and try running Everest, a free diagnostic & benchmark tool, you can find it here.
Hope this helps.

Unfortunately, I've seen this caused by both hardware problems (something on the system board) as well as software corruption in Windows.
Try pressing the F8 key when you see the Gateway logo screen (press it three or four times). This should, if Windows is healthy enough, get you to a startup menu screen. Pick the option of starting the last known good configuration and see if that lets Windows start.
You can also try using the Windows Recovery Console if you have access to a Windows XP system disc. (Your computer may have come with one, or maybe you can borrow one.) Boot from the CD. After Windows goes through its file copying and setup stuff, you will see an option of pressing 'R' to run the recovery console. Start the recovery console and enter the CHKDSK command. This may take a while to run, but it often corrects the problems that are keeping Windows from starting. After the command is done, enter EXIT to leave the recovery console and restart Windows.
You might also consider backing up (copying) the contents of your hard drive (My Documents folder and other program data) onto CD or DVD, and then reinstall the original factory software. This can be done by removing the drive from your laptop and connecting it to another computer with the appropriate adapter cable. A computer service shop could do this for you if you don't have the necessary adapter for a laptop drive.
A service shop could also diagnose the computer if it looks like a hardware problem is the cause, and give an estimate for the repair.

Did you download and install this particular driver from Gateway:
This is the specific Vista driver for your computer. If you have been trying others, your hardware probably will not work. Hardware compatibility is an issue with upgrading to Vista. You need to make sure you are getting the right drivers from the device manufacturer, and sometimes you might find none available.
