Question about Gateway 7320GZ Notebook

Laptop shutting off

I have a gateway laptop and it keeps shutting off after approximately 10 minutes. I have it plugged in so it is not the battery shutting down. Could this be explained if the memory is low?

There might be a setting in the BIOS that shuts down the computer when the processor gets too hot. so, getting better cooling or turning off the setting will stop it. but, if you disable the setting, the Processor could overheat and explode.

My battery light notifies my the battery is low so I plug in to the AC power and it still shuts off.


How long between plugging in and shut down? Many times what happens is it has already initiated the shut down sequence before you plug it in.

To prevent this, keep an eye on the power meter (put it in the systray if not already there) and proactively plug in the AC before it warns you. e.g. if it warns you at 10% when you see it reach 15% plug it in.

What do you think is wrong with my laptop?


Did you keep your laptop with you the entire time? Remove battery and plug in the power and see if it will come on.. If that doesn't work remove the battery for 15-20 minutes and then see put it back in plug it up and see if it works this time. If not the Airport might have been too rough with your baby...

Gateway 3550 Internet shuts off every 10 minutes


I have a gateway laptop with Vista that does the same thing.
In the control panel/power settings, ID what power scheme you are using.
I found that when on power saver mode the wireless and CPU were throttled down to conserve power. In Vista you can adjust these up to max power while keeping the other features on the default power saver settings. It improved the dropped connections dramitically. To end the finger pointing I signed up for connection monitoring using DSL reports (DSLreports.com) This service sends a ping to your modem every 10 minutes and charts your ISP uptime. Using this service I was able to determine that it was not my ISP.
Good luck.
