Gateway FX laptop Series Thread *mods and upgrades* - Page 214

post #2131 of 2331
I'm using a solid-state drive, maybe one year old now. I have no idea how to post the minidump file or a picture of the BSOD. Don't even know what they are. When I reboot there is a message that pops up (don't remember what it says). Could it be in there?

Does anyone have a gateway NV53 keyboard for sale (or they don't need anymore?). I will pay shipping for one.

My wife's gateway NV53 has been attacked by our kids. They plucked out the letter 'i" and the symbol "}". They even plucked out the little black rubber things
that are under the keys.

Thank you for your help.

I bought a new ASUS laptop yesterday. I partitioned the hard drive into 4 parts. Windows 7 is on C:. I put Vista on D:. Today I got a bluescreen already. I'm using the same software I had on the Gateway. Before the crash, AVG antivirus gave a warning that IE was using a lot of memory. This one has an i7 processor and 8GB memory. Would that be a virus?

Anyone play bf3 on their fx? I don't think my t5550 is up to the task since I get 10-20 fps and my cpu is 100% while the gpu never gets above 50%. Would a processor upgrade be worth it? Was looking at t9300s for $75.

First time posting here, i haven't seen much talk about the Gateway P-7803H. I currently own this laptop and looking to make some upgrades , so any suggestion will be great. CPU, RAM are the main parts i am looking to upgrade, X9000 , T7900 and all those talked about P mobile processor.


EDIT: Just found out my laptop can't take quad core processors, so that leaves me with X9100 as my choice, anyone seen these at a good price ?.I checked Ebay and it was going for 178.50 so yeah.

EDIT2: My Gateway P-7803h-CA has a resolution of 1440x900 now is it possible to buy a replacement screen at a resolution 1920X1200 from P-7805u Special Edition.

I'm having a video related issue with this laptop brand
My rig is stock, except for a WD Smartwave HD I bought as a replacement when the stock one stopped booting, it's the same model as the stock.
I'm running windows 7(64 bit) install, have the 9800gts nvidia card(1920 x 1200 resolution) and have all drivers fully updated.
The problem I'm having seems to imply that my video card is dieing. During video games, at random times, my computer crashes, the screen goes black, and the audio starts making a repeating BBBBBBBBB sound. At this point the only thing I can do is turn off and turn back on the computer.
This happens frequently on higher end games, and less frequently on lower end games
At first I thought this was a heating issue, so I cleaned out my computer and made sure the fans are running. The fans are running fine, and heat is being removed efficiently(a little more now than before I cleaned it) and everything is still crashing.
I've been using speedfan to monitor the heat of my rig, and from what I've seen is heat has nothing to do with the crashes. I've double checked my drivers, I've even installed older driver versions to make sure my video drivers are fine, as well as installing beta drivers, and this hasn't helped. I've also tried installing drivers from scratch, but no luck.
Is there anything I can do to help solve this problem? Or is my video card really dieing?

That's what it sounds like. Not sure if these GPUs can be replaced, but if they can, that would be your best bet if you cannot afford to buy a new machine. A 9800M GTS can be had for around $150-$200. (Last I saw at least...)

I know this is way late, but I just had the same problem. I just bought a new laptop with i7 and 8GB RAM, but wasn't impressed, compared to my P7811-FX. So I swapped the memory, putting the 8GB in the Gateway and the 4GB in the ASUS. Neither would boot. I took the memory out and neither would boot. Then I put just one of the chips in each computer and they booted. Next I added the second chip and they both booted with full memory.

There might be a better way to do it, but that's what worked for me.

I have a major overheating issue. I am running a X9100, eight gigs of ram, two HDs and a 9800m. I can play cod4 for a few matches, then if I don't take a break my computer shuts down. I just replaced the thermal paste on the cpu a few months ago. If I replaced the X9100 with the T9900 would that make a difference? (I am not overclocking the x9100, only undervolting)

The laptop cannot take quad cores..

I've got the P7811fx. 8 GB ram, a X9100 and 2 7200rpm 360gb drives in my laptop right now. Thing runs like an effin champ.

Right now I'm able to get that dual core X9100 OC'd to 3.8ghz stable. I'm sure I'll get it to 4 when I have more time. Is not running hot either. The key is getting an X9100 that is E0 stepping, not C0, if you can find it. imho totally worth it...the E0 runs cooler. Anyways I can run and do almost anything on this laptop and its 3 years old!

Next upgrade is going to be the SSD.

The only real limitation on it is that dang GPU. I'm stuck at 512mb since there are few laptops where you can change the gpu out.

that said, I am not sure about your resolution question but I wondered the same thing. I've chewed on grabbing a 1gb GPU FX and putting all of my upgrades in that one...I dunno. is another 512mb really worth it? Probably not who knows.

Is it merely the screen? or is there a limitation on the mobo or hardware somewhere? Tough to say. I've got HDMI out on my FX and its true 1920 res..
