Having problems with your Gateway 450ROG Notebook ?

I have a Gateway NV4405H, it keeps shutting down on it's own, sometimes after 2 hours other times in onlyh 10 minutes... I have verified all the sleep settings, etc....


Answers :

How is it shutting down? Is it going through the windows shut-down process? Is it suddenly powering off completely with no warning(even an error message or blue screen flashing as it shuts off is a warning)? Is it locking up forcing you to power it off?
Do you have the system plugged into the AC power when it occurs or are you running it on battery?
Are you able to power is right back on, and if so does it work fine after that or does the problem occur again over a shorter period of time.
If the issue only occurs while running on battery, then it may be the battery otherwise it's very unlikely that the battery itself is causing this issues.
Flashing the bios and looking for hardware updates won't hurt, but most likely will not fix the issue.
IF you are getting warnings of any sort, even a very brief error message or blue screen right before it shuts down, then it's likely to be a problem in the operating system. Problems like this can be very difficult to pinpoint unless you can see an actual error message to give you direction to go on. If it does appear to be a problem with windows, then you will most likely need to reload windows to correct it.
If it occurs with zero warning while on AC power then it's probably a physical problem in the system. This type of symptom often occurs when the system is getting overheated inside causing the CPU to not be able to function. If this is the case then the system will need to be repaired. With a laptop, this usually means sending it to Gateway's service depot. If it's in warranty, then call tech support and they can set up a service for you. They can still repair it out of warranty, but you will be billed for the repair/parts.


You got to pinpoint the problem first.  First flash the BIOS and see if that helps.  2nd look for battery firmware updates.  3rd remove rechargeable battery and power the thing just off of the charger.  Did the problem go away?  Get you a new battery cause the battery is fu.k.d up.\015\012\015\012
