Trying to download windows 8 for my gateway lt20 laptop online says my drivers are out dated but i cant seem to download the updates

You might try downloading, installing, and running IObits Driver Booster. They (IOBIT.COM) have a free version that works pretty well.

How do I fix a gateway m7315u that overheated?

no history told bought a dead PC? ran for 12 years and died just now? out of the blue fails.? if it fails dead cold, it is not overheating while cold, so if yes, we work the dead PC cause (and batteries do not last 12years ever) it's 12 years old, 2008 made. and needs service any PC that old ,
  • it is full of lint inside, causing the vents to be pack, the fan packed up and the RAD packed up.
  • a shop knows this and cleans it all out. \\
a dead laptop, out of the blue, failed, even cold the screen fails remove the large battery . 1: shut down the PC, using the power switch. 2: remove AC power pack. cord from PC, jack 4: remove the big battery (now bad) using the 2 bottom latches. 5: put back AC cord to PC, and test the PC now. like this. 6: hold the power button for 10full seconds and release if he PC ever fails to run on easy. this is called the intel reset. 10sec. now expect the E-mchinne bios splash screen logo screen. and then you hammer F2 key to enter bios screen #1 if data is worn in BIOS the Coin cell cmos battery is dead. as is expected this old, for sure. and must be replaced BIOS must work, windows is always last. get this far we can do more. ask. Coin CELLS: When the below RTC is dead it can not be ignored and BIOS goes nuts with it dead. it must be replaced, live span is 5-7years 10 is outlier max. replacing at 7 year means not having down time just what you need it the most. real photo not fake actual model real. emach-undefined-undefined-0.jpg

My Belkin G+ router is set up but not working

Hi, Based on your description, the only thing that I can think of that would be the issue is a router to modem compatibility issue. If it's, please attempt to use the same type of modem as is used in your home to help overcome the issue. Thank you.
