      Hi again Frank!
      Well I did all the things you requested and it seemed to work temprarilly.
      Unfortunately the computer is very old so I'm starting to think its just the age of it and the time for a much needed upgrade.

      I've got a budget range of 300-400 GBP.
      I found a computer at Pcworld, but do you think the specifications are worth it for the price? I'm not very good with computers but I do like to play some games on it and use it for website design too. I'd rather a better graphics card than a huge hard drive as I have a few externals.
      Here is the link:

      Best regards for helping me out Frank, you are a computer-lifesaver :P

      Hi Frank--

      Same guy's still having assorted Stop Errors with standby enabled--device driver, kernel mode drivers, memory corruption, overlapping memory addresses...He followed your suggestion to update the ATI driver and that seemed to disable Fast User Switching--rolled back, and the FUS worked again. Got any slick ideas about Standby related BSODs that we haven't covered here?

      Woof---I mean Hi Frank---

      Would you mind having a read through this thread in the XP forum? I'm ready to have this guy update his BIOS to try to fix an issue with BSODs coming out of standby. We've been through most everything else--he follows directions and shows great patience and attention to detail...I don't recommend BIOS flashes for everybody coming through here...I wonder if you see something I might have missed.

      Your notebook uses an ATI RS690T chipset. Since Gateway doesn't have any 64-bit drivers for it, I found this driver for Vista 64-bit at MSI computer:

      No guarantees, but it might work. MSI computer is where I got the chipset driver when I downgraded my Gateway to XP.

      Hello Frank4d,

      I recently installed an RTL8187B into my Gateway T-1625 notebook running Windows7 x64 and noticed your post: "I recently had the same problem with a Gateway laptop, with the same RTL8187B driver downloaded from Realtek. The solution in my case was to install the motherboard chipset drivers." Do you know where I can get the motherboard drivers? Andrew
