Thanks for stopping by. I am creating this on behalf of my partner. Whose computer has died. Not One Week after purchasing this GATEWAY from BEST BUY his computer started to blue screen. Now mind you, we bought two computers, exactly the same. (Mine is fine)
He took it back to BEST BUY where they re-imaged the hard drive. It worked for about a week, but not well. Internet explorer and Word would often crash, and he'd often have to reboot. He re-imaged the hard drive himself which again worked for about a week. Then it crashed again. He was frustrated and contacted Gateway. He sent it in to Gateway, and they re-imaged the drive. It worked for less than 24 hours. Now he doesn't want anything more to do with it. He bought Windows Vista Home Premium to try to install a totally new operating system on it, but now Internet Explorer is crashing, the system blue screens every so often, and the whole thing sucks.
Internet explorer has stopped working
Windows sidebar has stopped working
He just wants a working computer, that he can use for work and play (games).
