I have a old Gateway 835gm that im trying to revive with a XFX R7 250 Graphics Card Unfortunatly, Whenever i start it up, The Gateway logo flashes for about half a second, and i get no signal.. Help?


Do you hear any beeps when the computer is turned on? How many do you hear and what sequence? Have you tried to put the computer in the hardware setup mode? Perhaps it is done by holding down Ctrl/F2 keys while turning on the computer. What are the settings for the hard drive and monitor found in the setup mode? Do you have another graphics card to try out in this computer? Try it and report back.

I shipped my gateway to the philippines and had been using it until I had to leave. It has sat idle for 2 1/2 years. When i returned I brought new parts to upgrade, harddrive, memory, and a new windows xp...


Hello sir hi, try cleaning the memory modules of your PC. also review your power supply connection. and check the following sequence of events. 1. power on the PC. 2. fan should be blowing. 3. keyboard light, scroll, numlock and capslock lit and then goes off. (if this does not lit, you have a mother board problem) 4. you should hear a beep. (1 beep is normal, 1 long and 2or3 short beeps, means display problem) 5. the numlock is lit. (no light means problem on the motherboard) 6. the display monitor will now display the CMOS. 7. your drive should turn/spin or HD led lights.
Im not so sure if the motherboard develops errors due to being not used for a long time, and may now have slimes and battery leaks that may be present on the board, a visual inspection is needed here, remove your motherboard out of the case and inspect all area for chemical creeps.

RE: Old Gateway 2000, 333MHz. Where can I get list of beep codes


Check point 98 code: One long, two short beeps on checksum failure. Problem is a search for option read-only memory (ROM)s.

I had this problem on a Gateway 3200XL, Motherboard died a short time after. After replacing it works perfect.

Everytime i turn on my windows 98 gateway laptop , i keep getting 'operating system not found ' and when i press any button it keeps repeating itself. . . . and i should mention , i dont have any boot cd's...


You either have a failing hard drive or corrupted operating system. Since you don't have the Win 98 CDs, you won't be able to try to fix the operating system. It's tough. Hope you have backed up your data files.
