    Might be too obvious, but is the monitor plugged in correctly and turned on?

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.

sounds like your system is booting up and running due to the hold power shutdown procedure. you might try replacing the video card or adding one if your video is integrated.

Desaster


If the board on a hardrive is bad, it is UNLIKELY that replacing the board will make the drive work. The original may have "tuning" to the disk that a replacemnt doesn't have.

To avoid data loss you would probably have to go to a recovery outfit and pay plenty.

GT5034 has power, blue light on power button, no beep, no boot, sounds like fan running hard. Hard drive light is on for a while and both CD drives green lights flicker. Nothing comes up on the monitor. HD...


powersource is good.motherboard might be the problem.harddrive can be tested by putting it in
another computer and see if it boot up.to test the mother board unhook the cd drives and harddrive.turn
on the computer and see if the gateway logo comes on.if it still does the the samething with everything unhooked
then it might be the bios.you might have to flash the bios and reinstall it.to do this i recommend you take it to a
shop.if the comp runs with everything still unpluged and stops then you know that you have a wrong
setting on the harddrive or cd drive.if you got two of anything make sure that you have a slave or master.if you nned me to
write a guide email me at gamecrazy944@yahoo.com or if you got anymore questions.

Gateway computer does not turn on


Without seeing the machine, I'm thinking you have a motherboard problem. But try these troubleshooting steps before throwing in the towell:
Open the case and disconnect the CD cable. Now try it. If it still doesn't work, disconnect the hard drive and try it.
Let me know what happens. I've seen CDs mess up a system like this. I many times will swap out the power supply, but I'm thinking with the lights flashing, its a more serious problem.

Gateway MT6451 Does not turn on


leaving your unit in standby mode is not a problem as long as your ac adapter is plugged in to your ac outlet and to your pc. otherwise, you will have a drained battery. try removing your battery for a few minutes and then insert it back in then plug your ac adapter to your wall outlet and to your pc and leave it without starting your pc. notice the small pilot light at front edge of your laptop, it should be yellowish/orange. wait until this light turns green then you can try turning on your pc.
