I was getting the blue screen for a few months, and now when I power my Gateway GM5084 the lights come on and I hear it running but nothing comes up on the monitor. It's like it's not connecting...


First I would try a different video card to see if your video card is faulty or not. If you still can't seem to get any picture it could be that the power supply on your computer is starting to fail and not providing enough power to the video card.

Usually your PC will beep if it is a video card issue so if you don't hear beeps I would guess the power supply is the culprit. A replacement power supply is not that expensive and is quite easy to install as well.

I added a new video card and the monitor wont come on


1) Did you plug the monitor into the graphics card?

(Hey, happens! Sometimes in our zealousness to see what that baby will do, we mess up a little)

2) Did you install the Drivers? First?

These will be on the installation disk that comes with the graphics card.
Recommend installing the software from the disk FIRST, then turn the computer off, unplug from power, install the graphics card.

3) Does the graphics card require additional power?

Some graphics cards will not receive enough power, from the graphics expansion slot they are inserted into.

[Gateway GM5084 uses a PCI Express x16 slot, for best graphics.

Some powerful graphics cards require additional power cables from the Power Supply.

I need the small original bios file (.bin) for my GM5084.


I would not despair yet, Bill. I suggest you go to the Gateway site again and locate the correct BIOS file for your system. If this is a file that you burn into your BIOS after booting with a floppy disk with an OS on it, then you should be Ok. Just follow the instructions.
However, if this utility can be run from your OS, then I would pursue the option you're after on this posting.
