Having problems with your Gateway 450ROG Notebook ?

Overheating i have a gateway w340a that over heats, is there pictures of how to take it apart to replace the cooling fan or hard drive


Answers :

Hello
\015\012
\015\012There are documents all over the internet that show you either specifically or marginally what to do. The bigger problem is whether or not this is actually the problem. Is the fan not working - the easiest test is to hold a flame about 6 inches from the fan exit to see if the fan is actually blowing. Now, if the fan is not working you can remove it and get the part number off it. However, has the bad fan allowed more damage to occur. In my shop I've found that a bad fan usually cases the CPU or video chip to also go bad. Support chips can also be the problem along with the hard drive. Good luck

Hi I have a compaq fs7600 pc. For the past few weeks I have been experiencing sudden "black screen" and then my hard drive shutting down. Or it will go black screen and my hard drive will beep. It is usually one fairly long beep, then repeats about 3 or 4 seconds later. I only have 512mb of ram, which came with pc. I plan on buying a 2g of ram next week. Will that solve this problem? My pc is about six years old!! I know! Dinosaur!!

CPU overheating I was wondering if anyone knew about any cpu overheating problems with the gateway MT3422. I have read several articles on this issue, and wonder if this may be my problem.

My hard drive has been making a clicking noise for a while, the computer freezes up at times, I do not think the cooling fan is working, could this cause the issue with the hard drive making noise, and if I replace the cooling fan should that take care of the noisy hard drive ?


More than likely, your hard drive is failing. This COULD be the cause for the freezing. The other thing that could cause the freezing is if the processor is getting too hot due to the failed fan. Either way you will need to have your HD replaced befo ... Dell Inspiron 530 Desktop Computer
