Question about Gateway DX4200-09 PC Desktop
Boots directly to Gateway logo normally but hangs up there for sometimes 5 to 10 minutes. It then boots into windows.
What windows do you have? what anti-virus? then check your
system tools program in Start/Accessories/, run Disk Cleanup
after system up. wait till finished then run Disk Fragmentor. If you
have a anti-malware program or anitvirus program run thoughs one after the other, cleanup first.
You may need to clean up your registry too. Make sure you have not downloaded any third party PC Cleaners, or programs which claim to keep pc running fast. these are usually bad and hog system resources. After doing what i have suggested, download CCleaner from Cnet.downloads web site. do a search to find it. after downloading CCleaner(free version), run the two top jobs on left of box. 1) Cleaner(broom icon), then after finished 2) Registry(stacked boxes icon). if 2) asks you if you want to save backup, say 'NO'. this will clean your harddrive of garbage and clean the PCs registry. These things can really slow you down.
Please DO NOT run anything else in CCLEANER. Only experienced computer users should change or runs any other program in it. Much harm could be done if YOU DO. Hope this helps.

That indicates a hardware problem. From your description I would check the cpu or suspect it as being the problem. It can be a ram problem as well.

Possible a memory socket is bad. Make sure you are using the correct type of memory including parity and compatible speeds. It is recommended to use like memory sticks in each slot. Some PCs even require the sticks to be equal memory capacity. User's guide should tell you what the compatible capacities and speeds should be. If you don't have the manual, you can get by looking up your PC model number on Gateway.com.

sounds like your processor fan shut down and now your processor itself shuts off when it begins to over heat replace fan asap and don't keep trying to turn it on because you'll burn it out

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.
