Sometimes updating is not intended for older pc's. Newer is not always better. Using disk cleanup and defrag is the only way to keep the system the fastest it can be. Clean Ur msconfig startup often if U like installing programs.

    Disk cleanup is a program listed on the Programs - Accessories - System Tools - Disk Cleanup.

    Defrag is also no that same menu.

    MsConfig is a program that U access at Start - Run menu, click on run and type in MsConfig. I recommend that U do not change anything else on any of the other tabs in MsConfig, only the Startup tab. There is a button on the Startup screen that says "Disable all", click and OK, it will want U to restart. When it reboots, it will load only what it needs. If there is a program U want back on, go back into MsConfig - Startup and click the program U want, OK and reboot.

My Gateway GM5972 computer shut down and will not start up again, There is no video or audio. The fan still runs, and the DVD drive come on, but computer will not start up

Despite the fans running and the dvd powering up it could still be a power supply problem BUT it really sounds like the motherboard died.
I have built and repaired thousands of computers and your description fits the majority of the dead ones. Replacing the motherboard with a like board is the easiest solution. You can replace with a different motherboard but be prepared for problems. I wouldnt suggest it unless you are a experianced tech.

Egis Update ? what is it and where do I go to update?

Head over to Acer to the support section and put in you computer model number and look for any bios updates they may have for your machine and any recommened fixes.

You can also find updates for your machine but doing windows update but use the custom update instead of express update.

hope this helps.

When I go to download adobe or anything the computer shuts out of internet explorer, then when you click on the internet it says restore session. What is wrong with the computer?

There's nothing wrong with the computer. But I'm suspecting that you have a corrupted Internet Explorer. Try to optimize the browser by deleting the Cookies and Temporary Internet File. Please follow the steps below:

1. Run Internet Explorer
2. Click on Tools > Internet Options...
3. Click the Delete button under the Browsing History.
4. Select Cookies, Temporary Internet files
5. Close and re-open the Internet Explorer

If same problem occured, try using Mozilla Firefox. If the issue would be resolved in using Firefox, then the Internet Explorer is corrupted and needs to be updated.

Have a great day!

Anything connected to any usb port is not recognised by the computer

This could be drivers out of date or bios out of date
go to
look for drivers in the menu
then click to check and update your drivers

but it may be wiser to update your bios in the same way first
then reboot
then go back to majorgeeks for your driver upodates and reboot

then try your usbs one at a time as some times putting in wrong slot makes for

Disk consistancy

Considering that u have Vista, is probably nothing wrong with u;re drive ....

Anyway, try to test it with other software (not the one from vista), u'll find plenty of free drive diagnostic tools ...just do a little google search.

If all tests show that there is nothing wrong with the drive, than check all the programs that are active when shutting down the computer (..anything that uses the drives ... log keepers and such ..). If any lucks suspicious, close it manualy, and than reboot to see if the issue remains ...

Anyway a reinstall of the OS woud probably fix the problem ...
