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.

Problem booting I bought my two sons gateway 9500 laptops. One of them has developed a problem booting up. It frequently stops, beeps two short beeps and sits there. Sometimes it boots normally. Sometimes it runs for a while, then gives an error message that the video adaptor is not working properly and shuts down the high quality video, leaving only the vga screen. I've swapped the ram and power supply from the other laptop, I've removed the hard drive, dvd rom, ethernet card and floppy.
