    hey my gf is having problems with her Gateway laptop. She got it brand new in July and its having issues

    for one, shell be using it and itll beep and freeze for about 7 seconds or more and then comes back to normal

    also other times itll beep and then go to the blue screen and she has to restart

    and lastly, she left it on today and went out, when she came back the screen had tunred off like its supposed to, but she tried to turn it back on by touching the touch pad and pressing keys, but it didnt do anything, she had to restart

    Do any of you know whats happening?

    Could it be a software or hardware problem?

    any input would be great

    Thanks

    Sounds like the CPU is freezing, most likely overheating. Beeping when the computer is frozen means ts receiving commands that it cant execute because its already full. Send it in.
