Question about Gateway GT4010 (RBGT4010) PC Desktop

2 Answers

The monitor won't turn on.

My gt4010 was working fine until one day the computer wouldn't turn on the monitor. How do I know the monitor doesn't have the problem? I put a new monitor and the screen would continue to go blank.

    I have the same problem. I don't know if it is a power problem or what. This is a piece of ****. I will not buy another Gateway product. I can not get any support from them. I also had a Gateway camera and had the same problem with it (no support).

If you are having the same issue with a new monitor, the problem is with your computer.
1.check your power lights on the computer case and the power supply if it has a light on the rear. If these lights are NOT coming on look at the power supply first. NO power here means no computer startup and no monitor startup.
2.check all cables and external devices, MAKE SURE THEY ARE ATTACHED FULLY
3. check all fans (requires removing the case cover, usually a couple phillips head screws on the rear of the computer. make sure the fans are clean, have a little tention when you try to spin them with your finger and the metal finned heat sync undernieth them is not full of dust as this will cause overheating. You can power the computer ON while you have the case open to manually inspect if the fans are coming on.
4. check all add-in cards (video,sound, network, etc.) and memory (RAM) make sure they are fully seated in the main board.
Run through this checklist, this should get you through most of the hardware checks that would stop your computer from starting.
If its the power supply or one of the fans it's not a spendy repair. and if its something in the software, its even less of an issue, dont stress, just attack the problem in small steps.
post again here if you need furthur assistance.

I have a Gateway Desktop computer, and I have had it for a couple years, and it just wouldn't turn on. So I need to know if that means that computer is dead?

Check for any lights. Usually a computer would have a flea light on the motherboard as soon as you plug it in. If it doesn't have a flea light, start with the power supply. Swap the power cord of the monitor with the power supply of your desktop. If it still would not show power, try replacing the power supply. Worse case, you may need to replace the motherboard of your computer which would cost a lot.

Gateway GT4010 desktop pc powers up but NO VIDEO. I cleaned a massive amount of dust from the system and have checked every connection, cleared the cmos/bios, tried to power up with just the power supply...


Dust can be a massive cause of problems on a motherboard as it acts like a blanket causing components to overheat and sometimes conducts small amounts of electricity. Many boards on this condition are basically fried and need replacing. You could try a 24 pin power supply but i doubt that will make any difference as you have done everything to restore it.

The computer comes on but the monitor turns on with three colors and say no signal. I tried pressing the F11 key numerous times but it didn't work

check if the VGA cable is properly connected.

If the cable is properly connected, disconnect the monitor and connect it to another computer. If the other computer is working fine, then probably the videocard of your computer is defect and needs to be replaced.

How do we turn off the POWER SAVING MODE on the monitor screen?

Try going into your Start Menu then going into your control panel...then clicking on your "power options"....then switching the options to 'always on'..if this does not work..(as it seems you may not be seeing this because the monitor is in power saving mode) try fiddling with the setup option on your monitor and find a possible powersaving mode enabled function and disable it. every monitor is different so I couldn't really help you here...if this doesn't yield results try another monitor to see if it's the monitor having the problems or the computers video card...the video card could very well be the culprit...

The problem is inside the CPU... Open the case and check the voltage of the battery, a small button cell, it should read as 3V.

Check also the heatsink of your processor it might need dusting.

Now try turning it on...

Get back to me and tell me more about it.... ;)

My computer problem

Remove and refit memory sticks, as you mention no beeps, so the memory may need re seating. From there it could be a processor or bios fault not starting up thr first 64KB of memory to boot windows
