Hi,

Check for a sticky key on your keyboard, maybe a piece of something fell in there. Be very gentle with it though!

I have a Gateway DX-4200-09 64 bit with a Gateway keyboard model no KB-0817. For the last 6 months every time I reboot I get this error message "multimedia keyboard driver has stopped working". ...


The factory installed drivers and applications can be re-installed by using Gateway eRecovery

Click Start, and then All Programs
Click Gateway, and then Gateway eRecovery Management
You may be prompted to enter or create a password. This password will be required to use eRecovery in the future.
In the next window on the left toolbar, select Restore.
Choose Reinstall Drivers or Applications
Choose Contents
Choose the driver or application you wish to install
On the right, click the Install link and follow the prompts.
The computer should restart when installation is completed. If it doesn't restart, manually shutdown and restart the computer by pressing and holding the power button until it powers off. And then start it as you normally do.

Overheating and sporadic shutdown - does this follow screen freezes and fan stopping?


I would suggest you have the fans/heat sinks cleaned as soon as you can. it is most likely shutting down because of heat (thermal shutdown). on some laptops the fan doesn't come on till close to melt down (my inspiron laptop is great for that). If you are at uncomfortable with taking the bottom of the laptop off to clean out the dust and dirt from the fan take it to a shop and have it done.
you may want to invest in one of those laptop chillers... basically a stand with fans on it. they make usb ones that get there power from the usb connection. abit ruff on the battery if you are not using a/c but better then replacing the cpu.
