Hating My Gateway Laptop

» by in: General

Okay, I usually don’t like to complain (oh, okay, maybe sometimes I do) but when I buy something is it foolish of me to expect it to…I don’t know…work?

Years ago, for my very first desktop computer, I purchased a Gateway. Last year when I was shopping for a laptop to make work easier and more convenient (and mobile) I figured I would once again go with Gateway.

Big mistake. I’ve had nothing but problems with this computer. I’ve had to send it away three times, once because the screen just wigged out and twice because overheating issues killed it.

Although I would love to buy another notebook, I’m stuck with this one for awhile. But I’m telling you, next time I’m going with something with a better track record like the Sony VAIO.

    I’m glad to hear it’s not just my Gateway laptop!

    Four or five months after I purchased it, it started overheating and shutting itself off randomly. Thankfully it was still during the warranty period, so even though I paid through the nose to package the thing well and send it to the repair center, I got it fixed.

    I’ve got a laptop desk with built-in cooling fans now and I’m hoping that helps, as I spend lots and LOTS of time on this baby!

    when it comes to coolings fans, brushless motor cooling fans are the best. ,

    Cooling fans and blowers are essential to systems that produce a significant amount of heat like computers and other electronic components. Different systems are engineered to work with specific types of fans. Cooling fans come in all shapes and sizes as well as voltage, airflow, and case size.:
