Question about Gateway GT5220 PC Desktop

1 Answer

I have installed Accu-Chek diabetes monitoring software on our new computer. I need to uninstall it so I can put the newer version on. However, the uninstall program will not uninstall. I thought that using the restore button would allow me to get this software off, but this did not work either. I went to the "C" drive and simply deleted it from there. This deleted the icon and the the program from the C drive, but it is still listed on the control panel uninstall section.

Driver on Westinghouse monitor stops and then recovers

I respectively disagree.

Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device

Either Windblows looses the address to the driver, or it doesn't.

Freezing up of the graphics suggests to me other problems.

1) You don't have the newest version of Adobe Flash Player,

Yes, install McAfee Security Scan Plus, ya-da, ya-da.
McAfee bl-ows, and will just slow your computer down. Clicking removes the Green checkmark.

You may also have to use the Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller tool.
The new version will Not automatically uninstall the old version, and if the old version is there, the new version will not install. Post in a Comment if you would like guidance with this)

2) Make sure your JAVA is up to date,

3) Your brief video suggests you may be looking at a video.
If it is a game, it may be that your Desktop PC does not have the graphics power, to run it.

If it is a video, I suggest your desktop computer is dirty inside.
It's overheating, and causes freezing.
(Processor is overheating. Also look to see if the Thermal Paste on top of the Processor; and under the finned Heatsink; needs replacing)

Need more detailed info?
I need the manufacturer name, and model number of that desktop computer.
It's on the back next to the Windows product key, or up on the side of the computer tower.

My desk top is turning from a white screen to pink

What operating system do you have? If it is vista or 7 and you just put in new updates, that might be a problem. If you installed a new game or hooked up a new piece of hardware also.
For some unknown reason, V and7 have vidoe issues. Check if there is a new driver for your video card installed or there is a new update for it. Just go to microsoft update and check recent doownloads. Also go to your manufacturer and check for updates.
If there was something new installed, (hardware) go to your control panel and uninstall the software for it.
Check your connections on the display, and setting on the monitor itself.
Other than that, eihter the video card or the monitor might have gone south, and in that case, buy a new one.
If you have an old monitor kicking around, hook that up first. Thats the easyist wayto the root of the problem .
Remember, to always restart your comp everytime you change any software, either installing or uninstalling somthing.
cheers and good luck

Having problem to insalling Flash Player

Adobe Flashplayer does not automatically uninstall the old version, when you install the new version.

You have to uninstall the old version before you can install the new one.

To do this you use the Adobe Flashplayer Uninstaller,

If you have Windows on your computer use the top file -

Windows: uninstall_flash_player.exe (226KB) (updated 06/10/2010)

After you have finished uninstalling the old version, then install the new one,

(Click on - Get the latest version - to the right of the f in the Red square)

I turn on my computer,no signal,telling me, something with the v g a,I get a new v g a,still,having the same problem...

Hi kymani,

Try this:> Click Start>right click my computer>properties>hardware tabb> device manager> scroll to Monitors> choose uninstall>ok. Reboot pc and windows will detect and install the software for your monitor, check to see all systems go. If this does not resolve the issue, repeat steps substituting "display adapters" for "monitor". You may need the install cd or downloaded(updated software) to proceed with the adapters, but, if I remember correctly, you won't need it, anyway, don't worry about losing things, everything is replaceable or re-installable. If you need assistance with down loading new software, please look for me in "find experts - anaanymous - ."

I had purchased software off the internet on another computer. I now have a new computer and need to put the softwaer on it


Did you upgrade the operating system for your new computer? try to check the compatibility and if its compatible just install it on you new computer using the disc or software for the program. if you don't have a disc, try looking for a trial version and put it in the serial number that you have when you bought it.

Hope this helps

HP a400n monitors

Sure but you shouldn't need to tell the computer what type of monitor it is, windows should simply send the signal to the monitor and poof up comes your display, more advanced versions may auto-detect or youc an select it in the control panel under display. Try craigslist to pick up a cheap monitor in your area. I got a 15'' flat for 20 bucks.

Wertical blue lines on monitor resolution only 640x480 if is higher monitor is black.

Download the drivers for your video card from the mauafacturer website while in 640x480. Try and install the software. If this don't work right click on "My Computer" click "Properties" click on the "Hardware" tab then click on "Device Manager" you will need to find your video card and uninstall it then reinstall the new software. If this does not solve your issue you should pick-up another card and install it with software included in box.
Hope this helps.

I just completed an order for Norton Antivirus 2008 on the internet and received confirmation of my order. I am, however, confused. I sat at my computer through the download and installation; however,...

Hello fayerogers02

This is process is confusing for many people. So, don't feel like The Lone Ranger.

Actually, you'll need to click on the "download" link in the email sent to you by Symantec in order to download your new software. What you have done so far is to purchase the product along w/ a subscription for antivirus definitions updates for one or more years.

Usually, the course of action is to uninstall previous versions of their software. However, Symantec's installation processes have gotten pretty good about letting the user know if the previous version of the product needs to be uninstalled.

Often times, the installation process of a newer version of a Symantec product will take care of uninstalling its predecessor for you.

IF you have purchased a newer version of the SAME Symantec product (e.g. Norton Antivirus), then I recommend you download the new product and run the install.

See if it will take care of the uninstall of the previous version for you. If you need to uninstall the previous version yourself, you will be prompted to do so.

IF, however, you have purchased a DIFFERENT product that happens to also INCLUDE Norton Antivirus, please, don't run the install yet. Instead, post back here and let me know exactly what each of the two Symantec products are called (the older and the newer one) and I'll instruct you in how to handle the installation process of the newer one.

If you have ANY more questions at all, please, post back here and let us know. We'll be more than happy to continue to assist you.

Please, wait until you have everything you need and you no longer need our assistance b4 assigning a rating.

If I answered your questions and you have no other questions or need of our assistance on this topic...would you kindly take just a moment to close the problem by assigning a FIXYA rating for my "solution"? I would be very grateful for your generosity and show of appreciation.

Thank you once again for using FixYa! Have a beautiful day.
