Re: Gateway Model GT5228
It appears that you overheated your video card quite a few times. This can be caused by poor ventilation, a bad heatsink or just a bad video card. In any case, your solution is to replace the video card with a new unit.

i think its a led backlit monitor. anyway in my experience is one or more capacitor to be replaced. you can find them by checkin the capacitor top; the damaged one have a "fatty top" lookin. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague. hope it help bye
you have two problem!to see something on a lcd you must have a good inverter or if is led one of them(led) is dead!!!that cable you mentioned "put the pixels on the screen" sort to speak!put uv led flashlight above the lcd very close and try to see if on lcd appear something if yes you have the inverter or one led dead
You might not have your voltage set properly in your bios and/or your power supply is either insufficient or going bad on you. Have someone test all the leads and be sure the voltage produced is as it should be. Also evaluate your system as a whole and compare the wattage -vs- the power supply you have. (i.e. running a powered vid card.. tv tuner.. two hard drives.. extra ram AND a beefy cpu on a 150watt supply is highly unlikely.)
Sounds like a bios password thats only thing it can be pre-boot screen. If its a desktop you can dislodge the bios battery for about 3 minutes if its a laptop your kinda screwed. If you can prove ownership of the laptop then maybe Gateway has a master password work around.
You either have a dead CPU or a dead motherboard or a partially-dead power-supply -- the power-supply should supply different voltages to different computers, i.e., one voltage to spin fans, and a different voltage to power the RAM, and a different voltage to power the motherboard. So, it can be "partially" dead.
Borrow a power-supply, and try that first.
If all else fails, take the computer to a qualified technician.
Any hard disk that makes clicking or metallic noises is faulty, especially when POST error message no bootable devices detected.
To confirm go into the BIOS setting and see if the hard drive is detected, if it cannot detect the hard drive then it is definitely faulty.
Replace the hard drive and install Windows on the new hard drive to get the computer working again.
I don't know why but some systems which have XP (SP1 or SP2) simply can't take the upgrade to SP3. Your system appears to be one of them. For instance our family's computer had XP SP2 and upon upgrading to SP3 we received a fatal crash while XP was loading into normal operating mode.
I managed to resolve the issue by booting to safe mode and restoring the system to a date before I installed SP3. Sorry that the new SP doesn't work for you.
there is a basic guide i will give ya
1. not all parts are comptable so please check visually before trying to swap them
a. the large to med size board that everthing plugs into is the MOTHERBAORD or mobo for short
b. the cpu central processor unit (usually) is under a heat sink & fan upper left hand when looking at most (most) desktop mobos
c. the ram random access memory is usually to the right of that and may be sd ddr ddr2 depending on age of mobo
e. there should be cables going to the optical drive, cdrom, etc, hard drive or HDD for short wide usually gray is called ide or smal thin sata depends on the mobo
f. sometimes there are parts in the slots on the bottom left of the mobo (these can be anything from vidoe cards to modems to lans no way to tell without more info)
the first thing to look at if you are upgrading is the ram compatable take a tick out of the old unit you will see the catches make sure it is unpluged and you have touched the metal case before touching inside of computer static electrcity can damage a lot on a computer then take a stick out of this one do the slots or notches line up if so more than likley they are compaitble
next look at the cpu repmve the heat sink and fan carfully lift the cpu chip do not bend the pegs or its ruined look at the slotit came out of it will tell you mpg or pga 478 or socket a or socket 482 they would have to match to see if they were ubgradable.
like I said though depends on the age difference most are not that compatible even in the same brands.
According to this review, you can upgrade as far as a 2 GHz P4-M at least;
Other than that, i have been unable to find the details of your motherboard - if you can post the make and model (should be printed on it somewhere) then I would hope to find a more complete list of compatible and incompatible processors.
Gateway themselves no longer offer online info or support for this model, but the motherboard details should enable me to find out what you need to know.
Waiting for your post :)
