My nv7802 overheats and shuts off,fan is running but the heat sink gets very hot


The fan may be running too slow (faulty bearing) or the fan and heat sink assembly may be clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spinsfreely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.

Gateway 7405gx laptop will not load windows .goes to log on screen for user . click user and loads and then shuts down saving settings. tryied in safe mode and does same thing.


There is problem on the user account, or the hard drive. Try login as administrator. If the problem still occurs you need to reformat your laptop or try the recovery disk or option of your laptop. Or try changing the hard drive. But still, you need to re-install or try the recovery option or the disk.

Gateway 7426 GX shuts down randomly after fan revs for a few seconds. Sometimes it can run all day fine and then bam!, does seem to happen when I am actively working or have many programs running at once....


This seems to be a motherboard related issue. I am having the same problems. Some speculate that it is something to do with the cpu throttling causing the cpu to think it's going to overheat and so it shuts off. Others think it's a faulty cpu temp sensor. If you keep the laptop idle (no intense video applications), then it won't do it, but that makes it very useless. Also, make sure both fans work as the system has 2 inside. One seized and ruined one 7426 on me so I got another for cheap and now it's happening.

Gateway 7405 battery and charge problems


This sounds like a problem with the charging circuit on the board.
There could be a problem with the power jack:

They are available but will require disassembly and probably some soldering to replace.
It might be best to try another MB if you can find one cheap. Like this:

Gateway 7405 GX Fully shuts down at random intervals


It sounds like a thermal shut down when the processor over heats,one thing it might be is that the heat sink is not seated properly on the processor.When removing the heat sink make sure you have thermal paste to place between the processor and heat sink.That should give you a good starting point.

Did you look at the gateway site for the manual? It should be in it. That is what I always do.
