Default Gateway Problem


I have windows 7 and i've been using dsl for about a month. I was using my internet without any problems yesterday afternoon but when i tried to get on in the evening my internet was not working. When i troubleshoot it says "the default gateway is not available. " It's not the modem because i've used the same modem with 3 different computers since the problem started. My norton security expired yesterday also which i heard could disable the internet but i uninstalled norton and that had no effect. I don't really know what else to try so any advice would be great.

I do not have bonjour and i lose my connection about once per hour. I purchased this machine native with windows 7, so no upgrade paths or issues exist. Use it as it came out of the box.

Gateway Unavailable

I have recently upgraded to windows 7. Now my internet connection is constantly lost and has to be reset manually. The troubleshooter always says gateway unavailable and then corrects the problem. This happens every 5 minutes. Unfortunately this means i am unable to  play online, download or any continuous internet usage. I have other pcs that don't have windows 7 and there is not a problem.

I have googled this problem and it seems quite common without a definitive solution. I have tried all the sensible solutions suggested. So far.

I have called out my isp and they have run remote and local checks. They even replaced my socket and checked the exchange - no improvement. I don't have a nvidia network adapter, but a realtecone and i have rolled back the driver - no improvement. I have altered the power setting on the network adapter - no improvement. I have run the various ipconfig commands that are meant to clear buffers and reset things - no improvement. I ran the internet for a while in safe mode and did not have a problem until i reset into normal mode.

Is there any real solution out there?

Flash Player For 64-bit Gateway

How to get the flash player for my new gateway 64 bit computer. Is there any option available? I'm having alot of difficulties viewing things that are important without it. I wish software would keep up with the changing technology. I even spent 40 minutes on the phone with epson, getting my all in one printer added, because the disc that came with it was not windows 7 ready, ridiculous! Anyway, if you could please help me out, i would greatly appreciate it!

Gateway Mx7120 Notebook Audio Problem

I installed windows 7 r. C. Over windows xp pro. On my gateway mx7120 notebook. Why can't windows 7 r. C. Have audio drivers for a gateway notebook with ac 97 audio system? Everything else seems to work fine. I'm impressed with windows 7 and the speed with which it operates my gateway mx 7120. However, one of the main uses for the notebook is with a gps receiver and microsoft streets & trips 2010. But, without audio, i'll get no verbal directions from the software.

The windows vista and the xp drivers on the gateway web site do not work with windows 7 r. C. Either.microsoft, can't you make an easy-to-install audio driver patch for the ac 97? Or should i go back to ubuntu? Uninstalling windows 7 is a real pain for those who did a "clean install" and want to revert to an older version of windows!

Graphics Adapter Driver For Gateway 7330gz

My mom recently had a virus on her gateway 7330gz laptop and couldn't find her gateway os cd, so we bought and installed windows 7 professional 32bit. The installation went without a hitch, installed all the drivers, had to get older windows xp audio drivers as explained in this thread but other than that, not bad at all and runs pretty smooth. The only problem is, windows 7 installed the default graphics adapter driver and i can't find a real driver for my video adapter. I'm able to run at my laptop's native resolution, but there is no video hardware acceleration or anything like that, so even playing spider solitaire is near impossible and viewing youtube videos at fullscreen results in laggy viewing.

I've run intel's driver finder program and it says that i have a driver installed for it but the best one isn't supported by windows 7. And gateway's drivers for the 7330gz are from 2004 and are only for xp. I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions for me, or if anyone knows of a workaround or a current driver that would support my system.

Gateway Laptop Nv Series Mouse Driver Problem

I recently purchased a new gateway laptop (nv series) and am encountering problems with my mouse. I'm not sure if this is a gateway issue or a windows 7 issue, so please accept any mistakes on my part. So, i realized when i press a key and try to move the mouse it does not move (excluding the alt and ctr keys). For example, if i click and hold the up key and try to move the mouse, it will not move. I need this to work to play my games properly.

I searched the internet for hours, and finally came to the solution that i need to uninstall the mouse driver found in device manager, so i did so. After rebooting the computer it worked as it should. Though, the next time i turned my computer on it happened again. It's very annoying having to uninstall the driver and reboot everytime i want to play a game. I'm wondering whether or not there is a way to fix this permanently, and if so whether or not i'm not uninstalling the driver correctly. Here's how i'm doing it:

~ Open device manager > uninstall the mouse driver > it asks to reboot to make the changes (i do) > log back on, it works. ~

Also, it asks me when i log back on after uninstalling the driver that i'll need to reboot my computer. After doing that, the same problem existed, so that did not work.

Gateway Nv59c How To Fully Clean Out Hard Drive?

Since around february this year i had gotten a couple viruses that just wouldn't go away. I had done a factory default restore at that time but the viruses had followed me. I had let it go for months and now i have around 10 to 11 viruses in my hard drive. Yes, i'm not joking. They're deep in the installation files so i obviously can't just remove them. I have 3 gateway recovery discs and i have no idea if there are also installation discs that i should have before i do this. The gateway model i have (which is also the type for the discs) is gateway nv59c. Does anybody have advice, tips, etc. Before i do this and know if i'm supposed to have installation discs as well as my 3 recovery discs? And if i should use all 3 or do i just need to use 1?

Edit: it may be important to know that since february i have always gotten the "blue screen of death" and as the viruses multiplied so did the multiple blue screens and crashes before it starts up. Often it'll crash 3 times an average day when starting this up to use. Not sure if that's obvious or important to know.

Default Printer Identification

I am using 64bit windows7 with a hp laserjet5 parallel printer. I have tried three times to associate the hplj5 driver with the default printer by deleting the existing entry in printers & faxes and then adding a new printer. The result is that my default printer is now called "hp laserjet 5 (copy 3). "

When i issue a print command, i get different results, depending on the active program: (a) in firefox, "hp laserjet 5" comes up in the print window and the document prints directly; (b) in notepad and internet explorer, "hp laserjet 5 (copy 3) appears in the print window, but the print command fails; if i change the selection to "hplaserjet 5" in the window, the document prints correctly; and (c) in wordpad, there is no way to print at all.

I assume that i will need to edit the registry to correct this situation, and i would greatly appreciate a step-by-step description of how to associate the hplj5 driver with the default printer.

How To Customize Default Profile?

I was hoping someone could help me; i am trying to customize my windows 7 default profile. The way i used to do this in the past with winxp was by:

Create a local user account that did not have admin rights login with that local user and tweak the desktop and all application the way i wanted them reboot and map the that machines local drive from another computer make a copy of the original default profile and name it "default profile (original)" copy the contents of the local user account profile that i logged in with earlier and paste it over the default user profile

This worked like a charm and all users that logged in thereafter received the tweaked user profile that i created. With windows 7 i'm running into a lot of permission issues (even though i'm logged in as either a domain admin or local admin).

Also, i granted the local administrator "owner" rights to the default profile and it still failed to copy. I didn't get a specific error unfortunately. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated as this is driving me crazy. It's something i used to be able to do so simply with xp.

Unable To Set Headset As Default

Unable to set headset as default default but works when using the 'test' option in . In the past i was able to switch between default audio devices on my computer, from the headset to the speakers. However, about a week ago, i could no longer do so. I realized this problem when i tried to switch from speakers to a headset as a default device (both speakers and headset are connected).

In the playback options, i right clicked the corresponding device (my 2-c-media usb headphone set) and clicked on "set as default device". However, the icon did not change from the phone-shaped icon into the check-mark icon. I proceeded to check if my device was working properly by clicking on "test" instead of "set as default device".

I was able to perfectly hear the test sound through the headphone set, but i am still unable to set it as my default device. I game a lot so i usually set my headset as the default device to prevent noise pollution in my house. I am using a windows 7 64-bit. Home premium.

Restoring Factory Default Settings

I am a novice to intermediate pc user. Here is my problem. I have a netbook running windows 7 starter edition. When i got it, i was probably prompted to allocate memory on the second drive for backup space. I didn't know the ramifications and set half the memory which was a mistake. How do i either change the ratio of allotted space or how can i simply restore the computer to factory default settings so i am prompted to start over and reallocate space. I don't mind wiping the device of all in pictures, music, settings, etc. Just want to go back to factory default settings.

How To Change Default Audio Output?

I have an evga 790i ftw motherboard and am using the optical connection on the back for sound. It is connected to my stereo receiver. As of right now, i go to sounds, then select digital audio as my output, and go to properties. Under "supported formats" i can select dts or dolby digital, and when i press test, everything checks out. Afterwards, i go to "advanced" and the default format will only let me select a 2 channel, and that is all that plays out of my stereo. How do i go about changing my output to that of 5. 1 or 7. 1?

How to reset all user permissions to default? I accidentally stopped a user permission change task and now my system is all messed up, programs won't load correctly after reboot, etc. . I can't change the permissions back because it tells me that i do not have access to certain folders. When i try to find these folders to change them manually, for some reason they are not visible any more. (I have show hidden files to show them). I tried a system restore and the restore points are corrupt, so, i have been looking for a way to reset all permissions to default or factory setting if you will.

Is there any way to reset all permissions to default without going one by one?

Laptop Not Controlling Default Sound

Recently upgraded to windows 7 and now i cannot seem to control the volume of my default sound device when i have a usb headset connected. Previously i could use the volume controls on my laptop keyboard to control the speaker volume on the laptop even with a usb headset connected. Now whenever i have the headset plugged in the volume controls only change the volume of that and not the default speakers? Is there anyway to change this as i've tried everything i can think of and do not understand why the buttons aren't controlling my default sound output!

I did not notice that the box that says something along the lines of "make default for all programs" was checked. Now any time i try to open any program it opens the webcam. I have tried doing system restore, but received an error message concerning a file problem. It said to try turning off my antivirus, which i did and it still didn't work. I've tried to go back and select the default program for each program, but it doesn't change anything.

Terminal Services Default Printer Issue

In this message, the user is having trouble in windows 7 losing the default setting on a printer. Alan morris from microsoft chimes in noting that this is an "old" terminal services issue. I believe i am having that terminal services issue. I use remote desktop to my office workstation. I have my home printer's driver loaded on this office workstation so that i may print to my home printer when remotely connected to my office pc from home.

When i break that connection - usually by just closing the mstsc window - my office pc does not return the default setting to my typical default printer. Either my default setting is lost entirely (no setting at all) or the quickbooks pdf printer gets set as the default. Can anyone help? Especially since this might be an old issue related to terminal services?
