Question about Gateway GT4022 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Programs wont Respond

Anytime I click on a program like iTunes, AIM, even Control Panel and Systems Recovery my computer either refuses to open up the program or loads it and eventually pops out the window "end the process" because it takes to long to load.

Also my office word crashes after a while and so does Firefox when I play video that is not adobe

I scanned for viruses a week ago with none inside my computer
And I would scan again but that doesn't open either

gateway support says it will cost me $30 to ask for advice on this matter
I'm afraid I would be wasting money on something that may be something of a small bug
I have already tried rebooting and unplugging

I am in dire need of rescue

help me Fixya
your my only hope

I just googled the computer number you gave and I was curious if you could let me know. Regardless of if it takes ddr or ddr2 memory I would like to know because I could offer a suggestion of how to upgrade your memory to make your computer blazing fast for about what it would have cost you to pay for gateway support.

Basically I think that your computer is low on memory. You should also check the windows virtual memory.

I am going to suggest these tips which are free and please follow.

Google search and download these two free programs.

Ccleaner and Tunexp.

Ok, when you install ccleaner do a system scan and it will get rid of all of your junk lurking around in your computer. Tune xp is a very wonderful easy to use program that will speed up your hard drive, a great disk defrag which you should do after you use ccleaner. There is a great setting that you clear pagefile memory on shutdown which will also speed up your computer. Use every tweak you can find on there.

Be careful if you clean the registry with ccleaner because you allways need to back up your registry. I only recommend this for experienced users who know what to do if they mess something up.

Those are some great tweaks that I am sure will help you out with your problem, start there and if it is still slow as hell, you may want to delete all programs you dont need defrag and maybe reinstall some programs that you would want to run better.

I hope this helps. I used to have a gatway computer and the best part about it was that I learned to hate it so much that I ended up building my own computers from scratch...which is a lot funner and saves a lot of money. I can help you with that if you want down the road.

How to delete aim


not sure what AIM is or what you are referring to.
If its a program

You should always remove and uninstall programs from your PC that you are not using. It could be beneficial to your computer's productivity and functioning to free up space. You run the risk of running out of space on your computer if you add too many programs without uninstalling some. It is a relatively easy process, but you should be sure you are not removing a program that is necessary to the operation of your computer.

Click "Start" and select "Programs." Click "Control Panel" and "Programs" and "Programs and Features." Browse the list of programs on your computer and select one that you want to remove. Click "Uninstall." You may be prompted for permission from the administrator to remove the program. Enter the administrator password or confirmation if necessary. Check the properties of the program if it is not listed in "Programs." You can do this by right-clicking on the program desktop icon and selecting "Properties." Check to see if the program is compatible with the version of Windows that you are using. Click "Start" and "Run," to manually remove the programs if the uninstall option does not completely uninstall the program. Type "Regedt32" in the box and click "OK." Locate the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall" registry key and click "Export" under the "File" tab. Click "Desktop" on the "Export Registry File" dialog box. Type "Uninstall" in the "File Name" box and select "Save." The left panel of the Registry Editor will display the programs that are currently installed. Right-click the key in the left panel of the Registry Editor window. Click "Delete." Click "Yes" when you are asked to confirm deletion of the program. Click the "File" menu and select "Exit." This will exit the Registry Editor. Click "Start" and "Control Panel" and click "Add or Remove Programs." Confirm that the program is no longer listed here.

Itunes cannot open . error code is -50. even after reinstalling everything new.


Do you have Norton Security? It could be blocking it.
Uninstall Norton and try AVG antivirus. Norton is a horrible program, I've had bad experiences.
Or disable any antivirus or firewall you have and try running iTunes.
Or try this.
1. Go to Control Panel --> Add or Remove Programs --> iTunes --> Remove
...uninstall the program completely and restart your computer
2. Go to Control Panel --> Add or Remove Programs --> QuickTime --> Remove
...uninstall the program completely and restart your computer
3. Go to My Computer --> Local Disc --> Program Files. Once in Program Files you will see the iTunes and QuickTime folder and you will want to delete the iTunes folder and the QuickTime folder. Right click on the iTunes folder and select delete and confirm the deletion. Do the same for QuickTime.
4. Restart your computer
5. Disable all features of any anti-virus program such as Norton or McAfee
6. Open Internet Explorer or which ever internet program you use and go to http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/ and download the iTunes+QuickTime program. *Do not do any modifications in the download of the program.* Just download the program by doing the usual "Next" clicking.
7. Once iTunes is finished downloading, double click on the Shortcut Icon on the desktop. iTunes should open with a large square box and you have to click "Agree."
Should be good to go.

Click "Start" then "Control Panel" --> "Add/Remove Programs" --> "Add/Remove Windows Components" --> click the "Internet Explorer" and uncheck it, click "Next" wait for few seconds until the uninstallation is finished and click "finish" when done. Close the windows and now open, "My Computer" -- > "C:" drive --> then "Program Files" and locate "Internet Explorer" and delete the folder. Now restart your computer and repeat the same procedure from "Start" then "Control Panel" --> "Add/Remove Programs" --> "Add/Remove Windows Components" --> click the "Internet Explorer" and uncheck it, click "Next" wait for few seconds until the uninstallation is finished and click "finish" when done. That should work. Even if you don't repeat the steps, by default, windows Xp has the Internet Explorer 7 with it.

Hi! Here's hoping someone can help me... I have an HP Pavill dv9000 notebook. It starts but doesnt load right.AIM/AOL/PSP/itunes/etc wont work but firefox will work. I have no clue what's going on. This...


Hi Heather,

It seems the Operating system on your computer is not functioning correctly due to a virus issue or some system file or registry entry is corrupted.

I would suggest you to kindly try to do a system recovery using the following method.

If you are using Windows XP, reboot the computer and Start tapping the F10 key on your keyboard repeatedly. You would get the System recovery screen. Just follow the instructions on the screen and complete the recovery process.

If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7 then reboot the computer and keep tapping the F11 key till you see loading Windows files. When you get the Recovery manager Screen Click on Advance options and select the choice which says "Restore my computer to original Factory Condition" Just follow the instructions on the screen and complete the recovery process.

This will reload the original Operating system and the computer would be loaded to Factory settings.

My iPod touch will not work


Generally, the recommendation for this issue is to open up the Control Panel and go into Programs & Features. Remove ONLY Apple Mobile Device Support and iTunes. Restart the computer, then download a NEW copy of the iTunes installer from http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/ and complete the installation.
