Black screen when I turn it on, can hear things going on but can't see


Difficult to diagnose. If the hard disk LED flashes to show that the PC is booting up then the monitor may be faulty. Try another monitor if possible.
If the PC has two monitor connectors, then it may have a plug-in graphics card in addition to the built-in graphics card. In this case try connecting the monitor to the monitor connector.

Emachine ET1850 model when turn on no display picture.


Check ALL monitor cables, reseat connections. Have you done any hardware or software updates? Graphics Updates? Do you get anything at boot? Just no signal? It sound like a hardware issue, Graphics. Support for your machine can be found here: http://support.gateway.com/us/en/emac/product/default.aspx?modelId=2064 You could buy a PCI e x16 Graphic Card . Better ,faster Graphics. First, check VGA connections, reseat, check for bent pins. Try another cable and monitor, to verify.

Black screen no cursor no keyboard use


When you powered on the machine did you hear any beeps, hear the fan running, the disk drive running, lights blinking, hear the cd drive click, see the light on the cd drive door for a second or two when it clicks? If these things are happening you are getting power. If not, your problem might be with your power supply, hard drive or motherboard. Remove the power cord, then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds, then plug it back in and press the power button. if it boots you had a static charge. If you get nothing at all but a silent system your power supply is bad. If it sounds like your computer is running but you can't see anything on the screen you might have a problem with your screen or video card. If you have another monitor try using it and see what happens. if it works so you can see things then your monitor was bad. If it does not work with another monitor but you still hear fans, and see lights and hear the disk drive spinning, then your video card is probably bad.

all you need to do is put back the hard drive to the gateway, theres like a finger print that block the hard drive to come on but if you put back to its own i will come on...if you want to make it work in the dell you need to install a fress os...period...

Blank screen


Try plugging the laptop into an external monitor to make sure the laptop is booting up properly. If it is unplug the monitor from the laptop; or if you know the laptop boots up fine and you get the windows audio when it boots and the initial starting beeps then forget the monitor. Shine a torch or light source on the screen and if you see a faint picture then the inverter on the screen has developed a fault.

GT5034 has power, blue light on power button, no beep, no boot, sounds like fan running hard. Hard drive light is on for a while and both CD drives green lights flicker. Nothing comes up on the monitor. HD...


powersource is good.motherboard might be the problem.harddrive can be tested by putting it in
another computer and see if it boot up.to test the mother board unhook the cd drives and harddrive.turn
on the computer and see if the gateway logo comes on.if it still does the the samething with everything unhooked
then it might be the bios.you might have to flash the bios and reinstall it.to do this i recommend you take it to a
shop.if the comp runs with everything still unpluged and stops then you know that you have a wrong
setting on the harddrive or cd drive.if you got two of anything make sure that you have a slave or master.if you nned me to
write a guide email me at gamecrazy944@yahoo.com or if you got anymore questions.

Gateway 5056 Media center doesn't boot everytime.


did you look on gateways website for a bios update. the firmware on your motherboard maybe corrupt. go here and check since I dont have your serial number... gateway has a java based scanner that might be able to repair it for you

PC or monitor, signal problems


your monitor is telling you it's on it's last legs..either that or your compaq has a bad video section. either is more vital than a video cable being loose.
