I purchased a re-furbished Gateway desktop FX6840 from tiger direct.
there has been some issues, but for the most part it works very good.
the price was right too.
to make a long story short, when the computer comes out from being in hybernation for a while, it sometimes crashes and give me the following warning on startup:
ther is a lot on the blue page but it basically says
"Kernel Data Inpage Error"
then the computer starts again and works fine until the next time it does the same thing.
I am running Windows 7 home premium (64).
the spects for the computer are here:
Buy the Gateway FX6840-03e Refurbished Desktop PC at TigerDirect.ca
and from Gateway are here:
Gateway Support - Downloads & Support Documents - Desktop / FX Series / FX6840
I have searched the problem and a few other people have suggested checking disks....etc. I did disk check and all my drives were fine. i have not checked my hard dries or memory, but looking into the Bios at the gateway link above shows the following solution in one of the bios updates. i downloaded the bios update, but have no idea how to install it.
is this a bios issue? can someone help me solve this problem?
looking at the readme in the bios package i dont' see Windows 7 as being supported.
also- if i'm udating the bios, do i just run the most recent update, or do i pick the one that has the specific solution i need.
I am not familiar with this stuff. you help is much appreciated.
