Having problems with your Gateway GT5220 PC Desktop ?
I have had a plethora of issues with my gateway as well
\015 About a year after purchase the power supply fan would speed up and the computer would shut down and then reboot. I called gateway and they said it was the power supply. I changed the power supply and it seemed to work for about a week. Then it began to shut down on the hour, every hour. I googled the problem, and gateway had a patch for a bios problem. I downloaded this and the computer worked for about two moths, and now it won't even come on. The blue light comes on, but the fan doesn't come and the computer doesn't try to boot. I took it to the shop this morning, and it appears that the motherboard is fried. No more gateway for me. Just search for problems, but better yet the solutions and you can find thousands of people with the same issues and gateway will not offer any solutions. By the way my gateway monitor went out after four months\015
Yes gateway does have a bad rep and dell is slowly heading the same way.

Hi, I recently purchased a Gateway NV52u laptop, running the Vista 64bit operating system. Recently, I noticed that whenever I play music on Windows Media Player or Pandora, I hear severe static, both with several different sets of headphones plugged in, as well as without the headphones in. Oddly, when playing videos (Youtube, CNN, etc.), I have no sound issues whatsoever. Is this a driver problem? Or a soundcard problem? Or something else?
Yes, you are having driver issues with the applications that are giving you problems. Did you upgrade your media player yourself or automaticly? There is a 64 bit version for vista to install. I expect that the media player is the application hat ... Gateway PC Laptops
