This is an indication that the video card (
that is a part of the motherboard) is having issues with heat. has a program that will check the temperature of the machine to be sure. It is a free program.

Not being someone especially savvy in coding, I can only help so much, but I would say that a fake payment gateway would probably be more work than you're actually looking to do. If you just want a cart or payment button of some kind, embedding an image as a placeholder might be able to give you the look you want without involving the time-consuming process of creating the code yourself. Alternately, I would look into using some kind of free or very cheap program or service to use on your website. It depends on what kind of functionality you do and don't want, but I'd look into some of the payment gateway integrations in Magento, like, that doesn't demand an account be made at the checkout. That might be a good solution that gives you some of the functionality that you need for your project, but without the commitment that other services might demand.

do not do that

you do know charging that battery if old CAN catch fire right>?
and is very violent and danger to you, others and your home.
the newer batteries, after 2 planes crashed from this.
are now with an internal fuse, so if you did overcharge it the fuse opens and battery is rendered useless for ever.
why not change it in the PC as the maker demands you do,.
no PC stated nor any reason for doing what you want to do.>

i have a Gateway laptop. never heard of reseting media recovery disks? you can sometimes order recovering disks from Gateway not sure which registry key you are talking about? if you want to access registry, there are commands in DOS, if your pc is running. go to search box, type registry commands-it may guide you. not sure about you OS or pc age.

your system's display drivers might not accept certain resolutions. sometimes changing your display(monitor) can cause problems like this, when it is not the same as original build limits?

Gateway... | Answered on Feb 08, 2019

could be a connection problem with power in wiring. bent or damaged wires or connections of those inside monitor. or it could be getting hot? number of things. monitors are farely cheap now days. might be time to update?

Gateway FPD1810... | Answered on Feb 08, 2019

dont know how old monitor is but it may be time for an upgrade OR the pc/laptop/desktop? may need some setting changes for your wake time, sleep time, intervals, etc.? Sometimes if laptop,, you have to tap the power button to wake up after extended sleep times.

endless reloading THE NEW OS?

NO PC stated, at all,just GW,


THEY ARE SUPPORTED ONLY. UNLESS RUNNING LINUX, can't be stopped is Never true. ever. .
so I guess you are asking how to fresh load windows, clean and so that windows itself is not preloaded with virues, as seen on TORRENT Pirate WINDOWS INSTALLER disks. (THE ENDLESS STORY THAT)


if asking why , clean windows work, perfect , then later clients keep getting it infected, that is from reading spam, and clicking attachments and email links or worse going to phorn sites.

if PC is old run w7-32bit load MSE, MS antivirus is free, an educate your clients.

do not run XP,
nobody does now but the last guys sitting in a BAR at 4 AM... die hard's like him,GI joe! HE is wise. WHY ,READ!

cant be stopped.? the bull snorts, AND SAYS:

1: run top AV (AntiVirus SW)

2: set mail up for no attachments and text only no HTML

bingo mail safe. ok? it's not hard at all ask, (just do it)

3; setup your PC for safe browsing, with full phorn, blocking.

4: run Firefix v60+ it has built in protections. for many known dangerous web sites.

5: keep the windows firewall 100% up (w10 best)

6: keep the router firewill ports ALL OFF and dead 65k ports incoming OFF.

7: educate users. on how not to DL software with out first running

8: get software from only the official makers sites, do not use (joes nasty software download dot com)

if it is the original video card on your PC you should be able to download the drivers and other software related to hardware from Gateway webpage. i have used it many times to download or upgrade drivers, software, bios, etc.
you go there put in your model number info and it should have all that stuff including manuals? i cannot believe they would not direct you there. Unless, your pc is too old and they dont have it on web? my laptop is about 6+ years old and its support page is still there.

Gateway... | Answered on Feb 07, 2019

first off, XP is not supported any longer by Microsoft? So, after awhile xp will not work with current WEB browsers, etc.
its been so long since ive used XP i cannot remember how to get in to safe mode, let alone out of it? i would try to find out online with a pc that works.

i have opened Laptop displays before and they usually dont slip? Notebooks, wouldn't seem they would slip either. i would guess it was something that needs repairing or replacement? i have replaced displays in laptops and notebooks, surface types probably are just replaced with another, new or refab screen. they are not expensive if my memory is correct.

first, i assume your desktop has a wireless card in it? if it does, you cannot have the cat5 ethernet cable plugged in if you want to look for wireless providers! if the cable is in, take it out. then you should see wireless networks when searching Networks in your settings app. If your desktop does not have wireless card or capability, then there is your answer!don't know how old 508GE is, but many desktops did not come with wireless cards until the last several years or so? and you had to order them or put them in yourself.

Microsoft does not support XP systems any longer. its been a couple years at least! When they upgrade their servers, browsers, for the web, they don't consider what will happen to PCs with XP any longer. XP can no longer communicate with the new systems on the web anymore. It may conncet but soon most programs will be too advanced for XP to work with it. It would have to be updated through Windows Update program, but MS know longer updates XP programs. They are outdated. you need a new pc and OS which is now, Windows 10 latest version. You can still get pcs with WIndows 7 or 8 but they will be outdated soon too. Good Luck.

Gateway MX6920... | Answered on Jan 22, 2019

XP is too old to access the internet anymore! MS stopped updating or supporting XP years ago. Any system they stop supporting will eventually not be able to communicate with the internet. Operating Systems(XP) have to be update to communicate with internet upgrades, once that update process stops, your XP or others, will no longer work on internet.
time to buy new pc and windows os, ie. Windows 10

disk drives usually have two main plugs, one for power and the other is a multplug for system communication. power is small with only one connecter. the other multi connecters in the plug. they only fit one way in drives. Just match them up. Power/multi are linked in pairs so that you know which go to any one drive. there are at least two pairs in a desktop. if its a laptop only one pair and you have to take it apart to get at wiring. Desktop, just open case panel to access inside.
