Open Question

Game Problems. I have a Gateway - Laptop with Intel® Centrino® Processor Technology - Garnet Red bought at Best Buy. It works fine when no games are installed on it, but when i install a game, ie. World of Warcraft or Medieval Total War, the screen begins to flash between resolutions, going from all the way zoomed in to all the way zoomed out. And recently while starting Total War i will get an error saying that a problem has ocurred and it has stopped working, and that Windows will notify me if they figure out the problem. Please look this over and lemme know if you can figure out the problem becasue its extremely frustrating. Thanks.

SOURCE: my laptop freezes when i try to play games

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.

SOURCE: Gateway 7330GZ Not Booting Properly

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.

SOURCE: Gateway Mx6440 Sound Problems, installed Vista

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.

Can I upgrade my DV7-2173cl processor to one that supports virtualization (vt-x or vt-d). Processor is: 2.00 GHz Intel Centrino 2 Processor Technology featuring Intel Core2 Duo Processor P7350

Would be quite challenging. From cost perspective it may be good to get a new laptop rather than trying to upgrade. Also the n1000c is rather old and compaq or HP doesnt support it. So perhaps you can consider investing in a new laptop :)

What is difference between centrino and pentium m??????

Processor wise there is no difference, Centrino is just a branding initiative by Intel and it consists of..
Pentium M Processor(now with the release of the Core Duo/Solo, they are also included)
Intel Chipset
Intel Wireless
If a laptop uses all of these parts then it is branded as a Centrino and you get a "Centrino" sticker slapped onto the laptop. If one of them is different then you get the regular Pentium M sticker.

There is no other 'real' benefits of being branded as a Centrino. It is just one of the many marketing tactics used by Intel.

Gateway laptop will not boot up with or without a disk is there anyway to get my info and files off myself

If you have access to another computer you could purchase a hard drive (IDE/SATA) to USB adapter. Remove the hard drive from the Pacific Blue PC Notebook, plug the hard drive into the adapter and then the adapter into a USB port on the other computer. The other computer should find the USB hard drive automatically and give you access to your files.

This of course will only work if your laptop's hard drive is working. If your laptop won't boot because of a hard drive failure then I'm sorry you're out of luck.

Hope this helps ;)

dou core 2 and mine states Centrino Technology ?
Click on Start > Right click my Computer > propities Then it should tell, Very unlikely to have a misplaced sticker.

also online models have the AMD Turion processor
AMD is cheaper in some cases, they do not advertise a lot like Intel, there fore you can get them at a lower price.

Is there anything else you need to know?

Agp texture acceleration is disabled

there will be no chance of you to enable the AGP texture acceleration if you do not have an AGP card. BUT it can be enabled even it is an internal card BUT again it depends on the chipset itself whether it supports it or not. if you're not sure try reinstalling your motherboard driver (everything). if it still do not work i can safely says that your PC do not support AGP texture acceleration

hope i was helpfull

good luck

Can't run a PC game, but its properly installed.

Chances are the desktop PC had a video accelerator and the laptop didnt. Laptops have integrated video cards that share the systems processor and memory to do its work. Video accelerators have their own dedicated CPU and memory and take the video work away from the system. A video accelerator with say 64 to 128 mb of video memory may have a 250 to 300 mhz CPU on the card. This means the system can dedicate the full 1.5 GHz and 512 mb of memory to the game. Integrated video cards like this one will give up about a third of its memory AND half of its processing power to run your game. In essence, the laptop is SLOWER than the desktop when playing the game. If the laptop is running Vista, then the slowdown is even greater.
