    The beeps are 3 or 4 seconds long with pauses of 3 or 4 seconds between the beeps.

    The fans are spinning and the light on the harddrive is on.

Gateway GM5442 PC Desktop Won't Boot!


3 BEEPS -RAM

Guest Posts: n/a 01-24-2005 We had a power failure in the office this weekend. All the systems are back
up and running fine, except for the receptionists. It's a Gateway
Professional Series. P4 1.3 Ghz. It is giving me three beeps. No boot up
screen and no video source (monitor light stays yellow instead of turning
green). I looked up the beep code and it says three beeps means the ram
needs reseated. Which I have done several times. Also, I have just put in
one stick in difference seats. I have also reseated all the cards at least
three times. I have switched the jumper to try to boot into setup mode.
Nothing there either. Popped out the cmos battery and put it back in. No
good either.

Has all the ram been fried? The fan on the cpu is still spinning. The cd-rom
ejects. I can't hear the hard drive spinning. I guess I can swap the hard
drive for a different one.

Anything I'm missing? YEP

Acer computer won't boot has long buzzing noise


The long buzzing sound indicate the nature of the problem. Depending on the manufacture of your bios will determine the problem. With only one long beep you may have memory problem. The computer cannot initiate the boot sequence. Did you add any devices to the computer prior to your problem. if you did undo what you did. Make sure the computer is on, if nothing happens ( no lights, no sound, no fans etc.) the computer has a power failure. Make sure you listen to the beep if it is a numerous beep sequence note it down and check the web for computer beep during boot up.

I have a Gateway 5228. The cpu boots but the monitor is not receiving any signal so goes to power save. The video card is built into the motherboard but there is a card slot available. Can I add a video...


Sounds to me like the integrated video has kicked the bucket. You should be able to buy a slot load card and it will work fine.

I hope this helps! If this did help you, please give a thumbs up!

Thank you for choosing FixYa!

The screen boots up with the commands and then it


Hello,

The picture board on your monitor is faulty or bad, since it goes black after booting, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault.

The best thing for you to do now is to take the monitor to a local repairer within your vicinity to help with the replacement of the picture board because the fault is not something you can fix yourself. in order not to complicate issues.

Take care.

Blank screen


Try plugging the laptop into an external monitor to make sure the laptop is booting up properly. If it is unplug the monitor from the laptop; or if you know the laptop boots up fine and you get the windows audio when it boots and the initial starting beeps then forget the monitor. Shine a torch or light source on the screen and if you see a faint picture then the inverter on the screen has developed a fault.

My gateway gt 5228 has power boots up but I have no picture on monitor and the keyboard doesn't work. Both monitor and keyboard work on another computer. what is wrong with PC


First disconnect any external devices like printers etc that you might have plugged in.
If that doesn't work then it's a problem inside the box it can be the power supply ,motherboard ,memory ,CPU and others.
If the PC has warranty then you should take it back.
If you are comfortable in opening your computer then we could try more advanced troubleshooting ,let me know if you want to try it.

Gateway E-4200, Pentium III, Win XP, Nothing Showing On Monitor


The beeps are usually an error code meaning either the RAM or video card has went bad or are not properly seated. Leaving it out as you did could have caused the parts to come unseated when you moved the unit. Try reseating the RAM & video card and then retry booting. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Gateway GT5228 booting problem


"Also after I try to turn it on after a couple of unsuccessful tries, it actually boots and the machine works fine". This maybe cause by the hardware problem. And it usually caused by the motherboard. Changing the motherboard unit may solve the problem. But make sure you've already done the basic test on all of your hardware before changing it with a new one.

PC beeping, monitor will not display


we have different sound we can hear in cases of hardware problem, once the video card has loose contact it also beep continously, a beep sound also occurs when the ram(memory card) loose contact, one beep sound when it boot clearly it proceeds as go signal going to operating system. if you are using an upgraded video card remove temporarily and use the on-board from your motherboard. in case that it won't boot and still you hear a beep, beep ,sound then, switch-off the power take out the memory card clean the contact points(bronze color) with pencil eraser, make sure that no remaining residues of eraser remained before you install to the slot. i hope that this solves your problem
