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.

You should be able to just press the main system unit power button to wake up your 'sleeping' computer which will then resume your Windows desktop and bring you back to the Login panel if you have a password set for your account.

Gateway monitor 2100 won't turn screen on, blue lite is on as if monitor is. but screen is not on. can it be fuse or what ? is not v-card

It sounds like the lamp for your monitor is no longer receiving power. While you can attempt to fix this issue yourself I wouldn't recommend doing so as it doesn't mean it will work after you attempt it.
If the monitor is under warranty still then you should contact the manufacturer about a RMA. If the monitor isn't under warranty then you should purchase a new monitor.

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...

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
