Well, the same thing happen to my laptop computer, you can hear the fan and another noise but it seems to turn on normally and right away turn off and do the same thing. It gives you firs the blackcreem with counting numbers from 30 down and or it says enter but the same thing happen again, I think something familiar happend to my computer long time ago and I insert the disk that came with the computer and make it as a new one, there was nothing else that I could do to save it. do you have some diskcds that came with you computer, to restore everything and leave it as a new one? that my help if you dont have nothing important in your computer save. If i know how to fix my i let you know.. see you and good luck. :)

You mentioned the fan coming on and the drives making a few sounds and you also mentioned a floppy drive, a CDRom Drive and a DVD drive but you did not say whether or not the computer has a processor or hard drive with an installed operatings system.

If it does have a hard disk w/installed operating system and it does have a processor installed on the mother board, there are a couple of simple things you might want to check. They are simple but sometimes the simplest of things can create major problems.

1. Check to see if the hard drive's power cable is connected. If it is, unplug it from the drive and then plug it back in.

2. Check the hard drive's data cable. Is it attached to both the hard drive and the motherboard. If so, unplug it at both ends then plug it back in.

3. With only 128 meg of RAM, in a normal configuration it will have either one 128 meg chip or two 64 meg chips. Either way, remove the RAM chip(s). If it has only one chip, simply remove it and then plug it back in. If it has two chips, you probably should remove both chips and then reinstall them one at a time and try booting the computer with each stick individually. One word of caution however - if you are new to computers, you want to be very carefull not to let the RAM chip(s) get damaged by static electricity. Turn the computer off but leave it plugged in. Before attempting to remove the RAM chip(s), touch a bare spot somewhere on the case to discharge any built up static electricity from your body.

If you are still having problems after performing the above checks, there are several other things that could be wrong with the computer. The hard drive could be bad, the motherboard could be bad, the power supply could be weak or bad - or any of a number of other components could be bad. If that is the case and the computer is very old, you will probably be better off just junking it and picking up another one.

Hope that helps - Graye

Computer turn on, but when it does it won't POST

It seems like a motherboard issue. It heats up, thus is not able to turn on continuously. You may need to check internal parts embeded on the motherboard llike the fan and processor before you could know what needs replacement.

When i press power buton computers, on/off led just blinks once,cpu fan turn few times and stop, power supply fan also turn few times and stop and computer does not start.

Possible bad power supply, hard drive, and or CPU. If there is a computer repair store close to you, I would take the hard drive to them and have it checked out thoroughly to make sure all the sectors are in tact and possibly have the power supply OHM'd to make sure the proper amount of voltage is coming out in order to turn the computer on in the first place.

Gateway computer does not turn on

Without seeing the machine, I'm thinking you have a motherboard problem. But try these troubleshooting steps before throwing in the towell:
Open the case and disconnect the CD cable. Now try it. If it still doesn't work, disconnect the hard drive and try it.
Let me know what happens. I've seen CDs mess up a system like this. I many times will swap out the power supply, but I'm thinking with the lights flashing, its a more serious problem.

Deep freeze computer inresponsive

it sounds like your computer power supply went bad.
go to your local computer store and buy a power supply, install it and you should be up and running.

that is if you didn't fry everything from running it without the proper cooling.

make sure that you have proper cooling fans in your computer, a fan outside will not do it.
It sounds like your power supply fan stopped working and it just got to hot and died
