Thi sis not a problem ..but it is a common issue ..If it says it has 4 G and 3 of them usable ..it means this is either the supported or the maximum needed for your system ..In case you install something it will use the rest for it if needed.Usually there can be another thing too ..If you have an on-board video card ..check the settings in bios cause it may be transferred for the video function ..(the rest of the memory , this is happening when you default the bios ..and it has enough memory to get it from .)
Anyway ..like I said ..even if it is the max allowed ..it may not be the maximum supported..many boards does not supports the maximum on slots ..Older versions even made boot issues on the max ram was installed .
try to take a look in bios settings (advanced settings ) ..and under the on board vga ..see the amount of ram memory allocated , and if you want that memory ..change it ..If you only wanted to know why ..and you are satisfied with 3 G ..and the rest to function for the video card ..just let it be ..
I also suggest to reinstall the operation system if you upgraded memory ..it will assure the best functionality ..

Hello.
1st Did you reinstall the sound card drivers?
they can be dowloaded from the manufacture websight.
2nd Is sound devices listed in device manager.
If not, you may need to remove panel from cpu unplug pc first.
Remove sound card and install it into another open slot.
If slot is not available put back into original slot.

reboot pc.reinstall sound card drivers.

Yup. it is possible your hard drive is messed up but have you tried to check you memory card? Try to clean it using a clean cloth, rub the pins, and also blow the memory slots. Video card can may also be the cause. Just do same step as memory card.

Is this a Gateway SK-9922 keyboard with PS/2 connection? This is an old product, at least 12 years old. I don't believe there is driver support for it in Win 10.

Hi,

firstly, check the laptop charger/adapter, determine if its working or now. If the charger/adapter is working, then your laptop has developed a power problem.

You need the help of a computer expert to have it fixed.

Take care.

Try downloading VLC player, if this does not play your videos then it is your Drive that needs a driver update or has gone bad. If VLC player does play it or asks you to install mpeg2 codecs, then all you need to do is google "mpeg2 codec download for windows media player X" (X being the current version of WMplayer you are using). The reason behind this problem is that Windows media player does not come preloaded with a full library of codecs, there are packages of codecs that you can download such as divx codecs that will have the majority of commonly used video compression decompressors.

Wow yet another GW.
made year 2002, worth zero value now, and no windows support.

why mess with 17 year old PC of any kind, ?
first google hit
There's a security screw on the back that needs to be removed to allow the front latch to release the side panel. It's the stupidest most confusing case ever. The latch is very hard to see, it's part of the black plastic in the front, just push down on things until you see one move a bit. It's sort of like a car door handle movement.

it only runs XP the virus magnet and zero support now on XP nor VISTA and soon W7 the same, (blink blink gone)

seems GW made many odd duck cases,
made in
Poway, California, in October 2001.
now is made in Asia by ACER.com 2007+ ended 2013 our market.

you may have collectors grade PC, but Gateway, nah.......

gateway omg old or is Acer made, now. made 2005, 14 years old.
omg2, relic Pentium D PC, wow. old.
there are 2 ways, mostly, (besides rear clam shells)
2 screws.
or the latch.
we are USA are you outside USA the USA GW lists no 835.
usa has 830. and 840. we pitch these the trash, no w10 support.

835-zuzec33ptz3j1er1pnknd5pb-3-0.jpg
this looks like slider case to me. the rear side panels do not just pop off 1 by 1, no.
the clue If you look the top and sides are 1 part.
so that top rear screw release it, or the who front comes off pops off and screws seen there release the wrapper.
that is 1 odd duck case. it retire it in a heart beat.
some odd cases tilt the pc from top to rear look bottom front/s
see levers there in plastic and when tripped the whole front tilts off.

Hi!

Rather than trying to walk you through every step here, I've located a tutorial for how to set up your email in Outlook. Outlook's email setup is very similar to Outlook Express's setup. The easiest thing to do is to use the email setup wizard under tools/email accounts in OE. Basically, the key things are to make sure that you enter your email address and PW correctly (the PW is case sensitive), then enter the correct settings for your POP and SMTP email servers. The article points out the correct names, but be sure to use the right RR region (like KC.RR.Com if you're in Kansas City).

Make sure you click on the plus sign next to

to be able to see the entire text section. If you get confused on anything, post back here.

Good luck and please let me know if this helps!
