I am having very serious problems with my computer. I purchased a used Gateway 450 ROG model laptop about 4 weeks ago. The person who sold it to me was very dishonest and didn't bother to inform me of any problems prior to purchase. I tested the laptop before I purchased it and everything worked fine until I brought in home, plugged it in and 3 days later the system crashed. I took my laptop to 2 repair shops and neither one was able to figure out the problem.
When I press the start button, the green power light comes on but nothing comes on the screen. All I hear is the fan generating in the background. Other times, when I am fortunate enough to get it going, Windows loads but then immediately freezes on screen. Usually, I see like an electrical static image where everything becomes a blur, then instantly after the haze the whole system is locked up, forcing me to manually shut the power off. You have no idea how frustrated I am with this machine. I feel not only taken advantage off but also can't afford a new laptop. I hope you can help :sad:
