My nv79 notebook charges up my battery to 100% the charge light turns blue and after 1 minute cuts off and requires restarting to start charging again


Try removing your battery and power on your computer with your power cord only. If you have no problem with the power cord alone, then you need to replace the battery.

I hope this helps!

Gateway freeze randomly it just screen freeze


If you can, download Combofix, Vundofix, smitfraudfix, and malewarebytes.

Boot the computer in Safemode, and then run each program, one at a time of course.

If this doesn't fix the problem, then it will at least verify that it's not a virus related issue.

Gateway m685 freezes after it runs for awhile, then more quickly


It is probably being caused from over heating.

Are the cooling fans running? If so, get a can of air from an electronic store, and blow the cooling system out from the exhaust in to the fan. Stop the fan from turning with a paperclip or something.

My gateway mx6920 keeps freezing if I let it sit for more then 15-20 minutes. If I start it in safe mode it does not do it. does anyone have any ideas?


does your screen saver go in after 15-20 minutes ? because if so then you might try disable it and check if it freezes. does it also freeze when you are using it or when its idle ?

System Recovery Problem


Phillynoy was right on! I have been fighting with the recovery and restoration hanging. When I read Phillynoy's comment about the optimal speed setting, I called Gateway. The tech said she would be glad to tell me how to change those settings for $59 tech fee (first 30 minutes). So I decided to look in the bios and there it was under Advanced. Change to disable the optimal speed and the computer has finally completed the installation! Praise God!
