Yes, I have replaced my GT4022 with a new KTBC51G LF. All conections are the same. This board is faster, it needs DDR2 Memory not DDR1. Since You have a old 939 slot for your cpu. The new board comes with newer AM2 cpu/processsor support with newer DDR2 memory support.

Troubleshooting lost or forgotten passwords:

  1. Make sure Caps Lock is turned off.

  2. For Notebook computers, make sure Num Lock is turned off.

  3. If the password has special characters in it (examples: ! * $ # +), make sure you press the SHIFT key (not the CTRL key) when entering the password.

  4. Try these common default passwords:
    • Administrator
    • Password
    • Leave password field blank

  5. If you are unable to correctly enter the password after using the previous steps, the only option is a format and reload of the computer with all data removed from the drive.

You can download the .pdf manual for your computer Click Here you will have to log in a free account to access the download file but what the hey free manual. It will explain all you need to know about your machine. If you do have a manual you can find it there.
Just guessing without seeing the computer you have it is in the back where the power cord goes in at. Not really sure what you are asking maybe some other person may know what your asking. But the power supply plug in from what I have seen are int he rear of the Case. John

Possibilities are that sound driver might have been corrupted during restore.
So try reinstalling the driver from the mother board's driver cd.
It should do the job for you.

Rarely the worse happens when the mother board's sound card is corrupted, even so you can add an adiitional sound card to mother board and can get back the sound..

But mostly it is the first situation you are facing,.. so reinstalling the sound card driver should do the job for you. It is only the software oriented problem

The screen goes fuzzy because the video chip has failed. Since this is an onboard one you will have to replace either the motherboard or the entire pc if you don't know how to do that .

Gateway GT4022... | Answered on Jun 06, 2011 | 80 views

Probably hardware failure. To test that remove all disks and extra components and try again to boot into BIOS. If you can't then you will know for sure. If you can then take the opportunity to change the boot order and put the cd first and the hd second. Now connect an optical unit and try to boot in a bootable disk, preferably a Linux Live-CD. If you can then the hard disk is dead, replace it.

Try a different monitor (borrow one). If that doesn't work, you need to take it to the shop.

The capacitors in the onboard power supplies fail. There are usually visible signs in the form of the ends of the caps being swelled up. Happens to monitors too, and not just the Gateway brand is affected. It's not bad design, but the capacitor makers made a batch (and it's a big batch!) of parts with bad chemistry, and sold them to lots of manufacturers. Replacing the caps fixes the problems, but the work involves good soldering skills. Yeah, you can go buy another brand, but given what I just shared with you, you may find problems again. Even the replacement parts can go bad. Regarding your class action idea, yeah you can sue anybody for anything these days but bear in mind: the manufacturer's warranty sets the terms, and you agreed to those terms when you bought the product. The warranty is a legal and binding contract both ways. And if it has expired, it has expired. The only exception may be specific state laws that mandate rights or extensions not specified in the warranty contract. Your class-action is then limited to owners within that state's jurisdiction.

If this continues to happen you will either need to use System Restore to bring the system back to a time before this happened or reload the OS. If you can get to a dos prompt, try running chkdsk.

The brand itself shouldn't matter, but you must make sure you are using the correct format (DDR2, DDR3, etc.) as well as the proper bus speed (relative to the RAM already installed). Also, it is generally said that all RAM should be of identical brand (in this case I assume it would be a prorietary Gateway type), but you should be okay as long as the bus speed and type are the same.

While windows is starting computer is going off check the followings

  • the power cable connected properly
  • it could be a power supply issue also
  • monitor has power or not while system is booting to windows.
  • CPU fan is running or it is moving too fast
  • If fan is not working then it is sure that due heat system is going off,in that case need to check the cable of the CPU fan,need to re-seat the cable and if required change the cable and fan.
  • It could be the heat sink also,better replace that while you will change the fan.
  • You can also check if the processor fan is moving or not ,if it is not moving in that case you need to replace the motherboard instead of repairing it.

Thanks for choosing fixya

Windows was corrupted by a bad program. Since you don't know which program the best way to fix that is to reinstall.
If you have some files on it that you can't lose then just boot from a Linux Live-CD and copy them. The boot from the recovery disk that came with the pc and reinstall.

Your missing the file from the nt detect application on the C: drive You will need to obtain a good copy of windows or find an OS that you can work around it with. I would try using Ubuntu as a live session disk and replacing the corrupted nt detection files from a disk or website.

this might help you

this maybe because of BIOS error or change in BIOS setup,maybe you have tried overclocking on of PC's component.or maybe a faulty hard disk.the best way is to open the case and remove battery of motherboard and wait for 20 seconds and then put the battery in place and check cable connections and make sure they are fastened. but befire touching anything in PC get rid of your hands static charge by touching metal pipes or window metal frame or if you can wear anti-static charge gloves.change the BIOS to default setting by just pressing F2 or whatever is written when you boot and in setup just select default setting and save and exit. I am repeating try removing battery for 20 seconds. it really works for lots of problems.
