Use the "Gateway P-78 series". It used to say P-78xx, I guess they changed it.

I'm not sure, you'll have to check the gateway support site.

Okay, so, I have come upon a snag.

First off, I am running a P-6860FX with the 8800M GTS card, 4GB of ram, Windows 7 64-bit. And here we come to my problem. I am trying to play Borderlands. Now, before I updated to 7, I used Vista and Borderlands worked perfectly. I upgrade, and it freezes a bunch anymore.
So, I go to update my GPU drivers and come to find that nVidia doesn't support a Windows 7 driver for the GTS. Suck. I can't find one anywhere.
So my question is, first and foremost, is there a Windows 7 driver out there for the GTS? If not, would partitioning my drive into a Windows7 boot and Vista boot solve the problem? Not really sure, but it sounds like it should, as long as I run those certain programs in the Vista partition.
Plausible, the best choice, bad idea? Thanks ahead of time. I've been following this thread for a few years now, but have never posted until now. Hope someone can help.

I also have a Gateway FX P6831 series lappy. I upgrade to Windows 7 as well and managed to find the drivers I needed. Go Here That will get you the drivers for the 8800GTX and down. Good luck!


OK Now for my issue. My GPU cooling fan does not seem to be working. That and the Fan Speed Adjustment on my MSI Afterburner is not registering the fan. I will be uninstall the Nvidia drivers and reinstalling the Windows 7 Drivers to see if that makes a difference. I hope so othr wise its a hardware issue.

Hmm no luck. I may need to replace the fan/gpu. can these these be upgrade to a higher gpu? Or are we stuck with the 8800M? Thanks!

Right! No need to replace the fan! Or the GPU(which so happens to be part of the motherboard and not something you could swap out. Thanks Gateway! Bastards.) Anyway, I opened up the entire laptop)thank you to whomever posted the disassembly guide in the first post) and OMG!! There was the problem. A Dustball the size of a dime had jammed between a fan blade and a support. Not to mention the ENTIRE inside of the fins for the GPU was covered in dust! Holy Crap! So after I took this bad boy apart and cleaned the fan and put it back together again, I then realized that I had cleaned the WRONG FAN!! Well theres at least 1.5 hours lost. So disassemble again, clean the right fan and proceed to reassemle. All Done! *look at clock* 3AM? CRAP! Wait. 3 Extra screws and 2 small springs. Now where the hell do those go??? Damn. too tired to figure it out. So I put the extra parts into a ziploc bag and label the bag "Gateway FX 6831" and put it into a small toolbox. Does anyone know where those two little springs go? I am so confused! Oh yeah also replaced the TIM on the cpu and NB(?) there was no "TIM Pad" there and there was actually no space between the HS and the chip. So I TIM'd it and set it all back up. Running nice and cool.
