Not exactly a problem, just a question. I just ordered a new computer (Gateway DX4850-45u PT. GBL02.018) which has an i5-2300 processor and built-in intel HD Graphics 2000. I am wondering if I should use these graphics or install my ATI Radeon HD 3570 graphics card for better graphics. Thank you!

    I am not a gamer at all. The Gateway has a Blue Ray player so I am interested in watching movies.

    For business, I have to edit hi-res close-up photos of watches (tight shots of watch dials, engraving on watch backs etc.) Is the built-in graphics better for this too?

  • drichbart May 19, 2011

    I sent a second post but did not receive a response. I hope you have access to the entire thread.

    The reason for my continued questioning is that while doing the limited research that I did, everyone knew about the intel on-board graphics (but not about my graphic card{ATI Radeon HD 3570}) and to a person they said the intel graphics were not good enough for even mid-level gaming. The response I got said the opposite.
    Are there specs used to rate the graphics? Can this be answered with specific numbers? Is the HD 3570 outdated or just not of a high enough quality? Does the intended use of these graphics methods change the opinion that the on-board graphics are better?

    Thank You

I will go with ATI Radeon for the better 3D graphic and shading effects, especially if you love watching HD, blu ray, or video game. You can watch blu ray HD DVD at full 1080p and with built in surround audio. On the other hand, on board Intel also supports 3D experience for gaming and you don't have to install additional graphic card and better energy efficiency.
The choice is yours. For me, I pick ATI Radeon Thanks

I bought a new computer case and I want to use my mobo from my current pc. Gateway DX4870-ub318. I can't tell which pins to use for the power.


You will get better help at a computer repair shop than a component sales outlet. The same problem with two monitors suggests either bad cables or motherboard trouble.

Laptop capacitor


Hi Melissa,
The best i could find was on ebay.
Here's the link for the Fan
http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Gateway-NV53A53U-NV53A63U-NV53A51U-NV53A50U-CPU-Cooling-Heatsink-Fan-7784-/281088859805?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4172339e9d

And without telling me the type, size and rating of the Capacitor i think the best place you could find it is at Radio Shack or another store like it.

If you feel comfortable removing and replacing the entire Motherboard, here is a link on ebay for a replacement Motherboard.

Hope this helps!
Thanks and please rate;)

ADD OPTICAL DRIVE TO GATEWAY FX6840


OK add one. All you do is take the old one out and put the new one in after you open the case and unplug the power cord. There might even be an open slot under or above the one that is already in the computer so just push the plastic covering that faces the front of the computer out so the new optical drive can go in it's place. By optical drive you are talking about a DvD or CD player, right?

What is the correct battery for the BIOS memory for a Gateway model 4025GZ notebook ?


http://cgi.ebay.com/GENUINE-ACER-250-REAL-TIME-CLOCK-RTC-CMOS-BATTERY-/250619795738?pt=Laptop_Batteries&hash=item3a5a1a991a

Method.

When your Gateway computer is switched off, it still keeps track of various system information such as the date and time, thanks to a small battery that never powers off. The size and thickness of a dime, the CMOS battery can run out and need to be replaced. You can swap out a dead CMOS battery with a new one by removing the Gateway computer's side access panel.

Difficulty: Moderate
Instructions Things You'll Need:

  • Phillips-head screwdriver

  • CMOS battery replacement

  1. 1

    Shut down the computer. Remove the power cable from the back of the computer case. Disconnect the cables for the monitor, mouse, keyboard, and printer.

  2. 2

    Set the computer case over on its side. Use the Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the two case screws at the far left end of the case.

  3. 3

    Slide the side access panel to the left and remove it from the computer case. Find the CMOS battery port, which will be located to the lower left of the processor in most Gateway computer models.

  4. 4

    Lift up the plastic clip holding the CMOS battery in place. Slide a fingernail under one side of the battery and lift it off the motherboard port.

  5. 5

    Check the orientation of the new battery and compare it to the CMOS motherboard port. Push the new battery into place in the same direction that the old battery was facing. Push down the plastic clip.

  6. 6

    Set the side access panel back onto the Gateway computer case and reattach the case screws. Plug in the Gateway computer and power it on.

Gateway 3310s desk top computer power supply


Hello,

You can replace the pc with the same watt power supply or upgrade to around 420W and still be able to run your system within thermal threshold. The power supply should be a 20-pin ATX power supply.

Good Luck

When typing I can't quickly repeat characters.


Hey David, I had the same exact problem with my keyboard when I bought my Gateway computer in 2007. It didn't register some characters and the lag time was horrific. I ordered the same exact keyboard from Gateway( I was in the warranty phase still) and when I got the new keyboard it did the same exact thing!!!!!!!! I had to buy a different keyboard from Target. Just get any other keyboard and it will work. It's the keyboard beleive me. I even took it apart. Don't waste your time and just get a different brand.

I have a gateway labtop an I lost the Reboot CD


Hello, You would need to contact Gateway/eMachines they are now the same company, and tell them you need a new Restore CD, They will send you one for 20.00. However i THINK on most computers there is a way to create the CD strait form your computer. I have a Gateway, go to Start> All Programs> System Recovery> Create my CD's
