Few words about the fans. In case of the GPU, in my 7805, the left fan constantly keeps the temperature between 43-49C. At the 49C fan starts and stops when the temperature drops to 43C. The same is with your machine I think.
Yeah Ive tried that, but it doesnt work



Anyway I Just played a bit O' Crysis: Warhead. Its a pretty crappy video but im more impressed with the performance for a 1.8ghz cpu

Regarding BIOS (mod community version) to enable VT in replacement chips --- is it safe to put this BIOS upgrade on BEFORE i replace the chip? I'd rather get that done first, before CPU change just incase --- if it bricks and i can't undo, its still under warranty.

Thoughts?

Really need some help on this guys, its really strange and I cant find any answers.

The problem is this:

SOMETIMES when I boot up windows I get no sound, no mouse support or track pad, and I have no aero at all. Yet other times it boots up just like it should.

please help guys, im clueless and its really irritating as I have to keep the power button down for five seconds otherwise it wont shut off.

Loads of reps for help

Sounds like typical Windows 7 problems, have you tried getting drivers from gateways site or loading them off the oem disk?

I just put it in hibernate now stops them prblems plus its faster

But anyway, would upgrading to a t9300 improve FPS in games like cod4 and such? Or is it just a boost in loading things up etc?

Yes(game dependent), and probably(program dependent).

Does anyone know where i can get a keyboard replacement for a 6831fx? i just contacted gateway and because my laptop is out of warranty they wont help me. They said i can order one from mundocorp.com for 80 dollars. I dont really want to pay that much, and they are out of stock anyways
