The power adapter is most likely not working.  The battery is unable to keep it on.

Fan issue


Only way to know is look to see if fan is on (set will shut down almost instantly if any fan slows or shuts off--the fans are all being monitored.)

Shortly after I turn my computer it turns off


How long is shortly? If it runs and brings up the Windows Desktop and you are allowed to work for 10 minutes or longer then it shuts down, most likely the laptop is overheating. One way to tell if it is overheating is to immediately try to turn it back on after it shuts off. If it will not boot back up, it's overheating. If you let it sit and cool off for a while, then try to boot it back up and it does it successfully, it's overheating.Causes of Overheating:1) Dust all inside the computer. Fans clogged with dust, dust around the vents.2) Fan not working3) The Thermal Past around the CPU has dried up or is too thin the keep the unit cool.When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

Gateway MS2274 Laptop has a black screen and not booting. The power indicator comes on and all you hear is the fan and soon afterward will shut off; no hard drive LED. Tried removing the battery and...


Sounds like a severe hardware problem concerning your laptop's hard drive. I suggest you contact Gateway customer service to check on your warranty - your laptop is, simply put, broken. The best approach to repairing it is not to fix it yourself in this case.

Computer is frozen


Power drain would be a better solution in this case.
1.first shut down the comp
2.unplug the charger
3. remove the battery
and after press and hold the power button for 60 seconds without any charger and the battery.After the 60 seconds replug the battery and the charger and turn the computer .

Does not power on, but lights flash


Hi

Thank you for your query

The clicking noise you are hearing is one of 2 things

1) The CPU fan trying to turn but it cannot, therefore your PC comes on for a short period of time, overheats and switches off

2) The Hard drive is faulty and is causing a short, making the LAptop switch off

Either one will need further inspection by a qualified engineer

Please book laptop into a reputable PC shop for further diagnosis

If this has been useful please leave postive feedback/vote/testimonial - Thank You Again

As soon i turn it on it shuts off with a flash i hear the fan for a second and off it goes


It's shutting down because it's too hot check the fan assembly is secured firmly into it's slot..cos it may be loose.
