Question about Gateway GT4010 (RBGT4010) PC Desktop

My computer problem

Hi, I bought a gateway GT4010 computer about a year ago. I'm currently having problems with the computer not recieving any information on the monitor. The only thing showing up on the monitor is "no signal" A B C. When I turn on the computer the fan turns on but not the blue light on the power button does not. It seems that it not powering up completely. I'm thinking it might be the video card which I couldn't locate with certainty or the cable itself running from the monitor to the computer. I need help, thanks in advance.

Re: 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

Gateway GT4010 boots then starts beeping and shuts off

First check your power supply section and check your power fan that is running properly. if ok then the suspected area is your processor section. please check it if its collar fan nor running properly then clean up or change that. and the other advice is please check your processor pin which are too tiny. be careful about these.

Gateway gt4010, wont power on.

The fan turning off will be the cause of the PC shutting down.
This could be caused by a faulty fan or bad connection to motherboard.
1. try reseating the fans power plug on the motherboard
2. if that doesn't help, try replacing with new fan.
3. if that doesn't work then most likely motherboard problem

My Gateway GT4010 PC keeps rebooting itself before

Try replacing the hard drive cable. If that doesn't fix the problem, then you may have bad RAM, bad motherboard or a bad power supply. Sounds like a hardware issue and not software. try booting your computer in safe mode since it doesn't load all the device drivers. If it still reboots then you'll have to keep swapping parts and booting up the computer to isolate the problem.

Bad motherboard or power supply which fries motherboard

Gateway hasn't had any recalls on it that I know of. maybe it is not the mother board. It might be the hard drive. Hard drives can do that aswell. When I fix a computer the first thing I check is the hard drive. A little bit of advice with computers. Start with the small things first and work Your way up to the big stuff. Hope that helps.

Why didn't Gateway recall GT4010?

Gateway, Or the "cow computers" require you to update and pay for ALL drivers necessary to keep your computer working. As far as a motherboard is concerned, there is a part number on the board and you can go to many sites to buy a used or new motherboard, but, and this is IMPORTANT, you need to know the type of SOCKET your processor is plugged into. Your processor is made one way, but with different pin configurations.
Your "posts" are messages from other people complaining about Gateway, they're not fix actions. Hopefully this helps. My e-mail .

Windows xp wont allow to login

Very possible depending on the computer as you boot up you will see a message to depress F2 or F8 or F10 or possible the del key to start a system restore. Tap on of these keys as it boots up and you should go into the restore mode....

Gateway GT4010 Problem

This problem is video chip related. I have done alot of research on this and found that everyone has the same problem in some form or another. Your best bet is to junk the pc and get a different one, since the motherboard in the pc and the replacements you can get are all prone to the same failure. The best home remedy I have found is a hair dryer on the video chipset as mentioned in one of the above "fixes". Seems to work for a while, not permanent. You may need to repeat if your system goes down again. Also, when your system powers up and your screen looks more green than usual or different than it used to, just apply more heat and pressure. On another note, if anyone has a replacement for this case, GT4010, from a different manufacturer, please let me know. Hope this helps.
