What are you trying to do? Connect to a tv? If so make sure you take
the remote to the tv and press Select Input, then select HDMI as the
input source (or it might be PC, but most likely HDMI). Then reboot the
laptop and the display should be on the tv.
The video will show on most systems when you
reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit
the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the
correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key
will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

Randomly disconect wireless internet
CONTINUAL DISCONNECTION OF WIRELESS CONNECTION
There are a few things thatcan cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.1. Weak signal strength,check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move thewireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locatethe wireless router higher up.2. Have you secured yourwireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change thedefault password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID,and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC addressfiltering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s toconnect to your wireless router.3. You could be gettinginterference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders,washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers andcomputers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, betterstill connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted PowerSupply). 4. Check the channels ofthe wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcastchannel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currentlyused but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interferencewith your wireless router from other wireless routers and accesspoints in your area.

Gateway M-7315U, Ser# 83506341425, no power
I had the same problem. Could be that the motherboard is retaining a charge. #1. unplug ac/dc adapter and also remove battery.#2. Press the power button and hold it down for 15-50 seconds. This will drain the board of any residual charge that may interfere with it powering up.#3. Leave the battery out and plug in the ac/dc adapter (to eliminate the battery being the problem) now press the power button. It should start up.
