Download a Malware/Spyware search and destroy problem form cnet.com, a good one I have used is MALWAREBYTES, yes that is the name of it and it works. Another way around the problem is to do system recovery to an earlier date that the problem wasn't present. System recovery is located in the system tools menu.

SOURCE: Gateway- built-in laptop Speakers not working

Heat dissipation from the unit in the same area of the speaker assembly, especially since you stated that the RIGHT speaker was smoked. Similar problems occur with this design flaw with any manufacturer as HP has the same problem with some of their models.

Your heat exhaust is killing the speaker, and I would also bet that your chipset is AMD and not Intel, the latter having solved it's heat dissipationn problems.

A more aggressive heat dissipation solution on the motherboard or redirection of the exhaust past fewer heat sensitive components would be a design goal.

SOURCE: Where do I get a system recovery disc for a gateway GT4016??

Well the quick and dirty answer to this would simply be to order a replacement set directly from Gateway

If you check in with different computer repair centers in your local area, you can also check in with them, see if the technicians there keep a library of restore disks. I work at a tech shop myself, and we usually carry an extensive library of different restore disks for various notebooks and desktops.

SOURCE: Can I replace my gateway T-6836 laptop 250 gb hardrive

Yes, it can be upgraded for a larger drive. The important specs to know are the physical size and the interface. The size that this computer needs is the 2.5 inch and the interface is the SATA. These are the typical size and interface used today so finding a drive that fits should not be a problem.

Hope this helps.

The team is constantly giving the blue screen of death, or simply slow loading and crashing frequently? This situation happens to many users, and you have to learn to clean the computer record. 3 reasons below are usually the main causes of computer errors and slowdowns.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Spyware and adware</span><br /><br />Computers that are permanently connected to the Internet it is likely spyware and adware on them. These are programs that are online sites where you surf team. Different spyware programs do different things on your computer, and its most common objective is to continue what you do. This information is transmitted to the main site and the user has no idea what just happened. All you need do is download a spyware cleaner and run the software. Remove all spyware on your computer and you can expect your computer run faster after that.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">PC registry errors</span><br /><br />90% of the time, computer problems and slow speed causes problems with your registration. The registry file on your computer to manage applications and hardware should be performed, and that the probability of errors in the register is very high, especially for users who have used computers a year. It 'important to constantly clean the registry of the computer to make sure the computer is in good condition. There are many software to scan your registry, and you should download one of them and clean up the registry. For a list of the top registry cleaners on the Web, visit the website link at the end of this article.<br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">Viruses</span><br /><br />This is another cause of computer problems, even if it is not very common. If you believe that your computer has a virus, you should find a good anti-virus software on your computer. Set a virus scanner to scan documents, especially those who have downloaded from the Internet. This includes files, including your own song or download this game, and even e-mail attachments.<br /><br />One thing I would do is try to clean your computer's registry on my own. I remember my experience when "suspicious" that one of my log files was in the wrong place and started moving in my own back to their "place of origin." After that, My computer will not start more and I had to use a registry cleaner for my computer working again.<br /><br />

My yahoo has become VERY slow moving. I wait 30-40 seconds each time I do something.


I suggest you perform a malware or spyware scan. Download spyware hunter.google it.
Run the spyware scan and remove all detected spywares. after that i suggest running a full system virus scan using Kaspersky, bitdefender, or any other anti virus you may have.

Check to see if AVG has the option to scan the computer before windows start. I would also download and install a Spyware Scanner and run it. Usually when you are running a Spyware scan it will also pick up some of the Trojans and help your virus scanner detect and clean more viruses. I personally use SuperAntispyware ( www.superanitspyware.com) and SpyBot ( www.safer-networking.org/ ). Do a full scan and delete everything that if finds. If for some reason you are still having this issue, try restarting your computer into safe mode ( by pressing F8 when computer is booting up) and scanning every in safe mode.

Hope this helps.

Sony Vaio VGN-FS980 is slow


Aside from hardware many things can slow up your PC:
  • If the C: drive is too full Windows is unable to allocate a proper virtual memory cache on the drive.
  • Your chosen anti-virus solution can even slow certain machines down (post what your running)
  • A high % of the time it is spyware/malware related
Just to make sure the machine is completely malware free you should download and run this program.

It is a virus or spyware try running a antivirus or antispyware prog if that doesn't help you will have a choice live with it(easy, but annoying), take it in (easy,but expensive), or save all your important files and reload everything (little more difficult, but cheap). Hope that helps you out. Either way you do it make sure to always have antivirus and antispyware running, you can get good ones for free. here are some links.
