    Please tell the forum what Operating System version you use and how much system RAN is on your computer. State anyeror messages word for word.

    Gateway technical support provides lifetime software support for their computers new and old. Just call the 800 number and go through the phone prompts armed with the unit Serial and model number, the orginal purchaser's name and the phone number they gave when the unit was first purchased.
