Having problems with your Gateway M465-E Notebook ?

Machine freeze up randomly. Must do a hard shutdown. Seems like a motherboard failure Does anyone know how I can get support for my M465-E laptop? MPC is not responding to any of my emails and their phone is always busy. Gateway customer support only responds with a canned answer which is "Contact MPC for support". My laptop is considered a business division support issue and nobody is helping. It is still under warranty and I need a new MB, since mine keeps rebooting itself over and over.


Answers :

Hi, "marspkr": First you stated that you had to "do a hard shutdown" because of this unit locking up...then at the end of your message you stated that it "keeps rebooting itself over and over". Should usually be one or the other. As I stated above, with the laptop I was working on, it turned out to be a complete HD breakdown. Now the owner has to decide whether to purchase another Hitachi "Deathstar" or just give up and buy a new model. Usually 2 or 3 things would cause a complete lockup requiring a 'hard shutdown'. 1. HD failing, 2. Bad or unsupported RAM, or 3. Overheating onboard video. All of which are pretty crappy considering that neither GW or MPC are in the biz of customer support anymore.

If you are experiencing a constant rebooting scenario, I would reccommend going into safe mode and running any number of the freeware tools out there to help with malware/virus activity. For example: "MBAM", "ComboFix", "A-squared", "HiJack This", etc. Most of these tools have instructions at their site of origin and have always come in very handy for my use. Much luck to you.
