Question about Gateway DX483101e PC Desktop
MODEL NUMBER ON THE BACK OF THE PC JUST READS GATEWAY 4831 NOTHING ELSE. NO MATTER WHAT KIND OF CARD I INSERT INTO THE SLOTS, NONE OF THEM WILL READ. NOTHING SHOWS UP UNDER "MY COMPUTER" NOTHING ANYWHERE. PLEASE HELP
Either the Card Reader isn't plugged in, or isn't any good.
Repair would be to purchase another Card Reader, but after checking the USB header/s on the motherboard, that the Card Reader is plugged into.
(FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions)
Or you can use an external Card Reader, and plug it into a USB port,
Your keyboard has a problem too. It's stuck in capital letters.

REmove all the old memory and replace it by a new memory, you should test memory 1 by 1 .
first install the 1 memory in the first slot. then boot the computer using only 512mb. if this successful. shutdown and insert the second memory, then test again.
note: memory should be:
1. DDR SDRAM
2. the two 512 should be the same brand.

Did you check the type of the memory card the motherboard of your computer would support? It may be a DDR1 or DDR2 and also check how much memory your motherboard can hold. You disconnect the memory card and check to see if the computer would turn on.

Boot into safe mode and see if you can either roll back the driver restore the computer to the date right before you downloaded it.

Another option , if you have on board graphisc alos is to hook up the monitor to the onboard turn it on in BIOS and change the driver for the card using the onther graphics.

Based on my experience, the most probable cause of your problem is the RAM. Try Cleaning the RAM first by removing it from the slot, and rub the pins with a pencil eraser. As shown on the image below:
Then re-install it to the motherboard. If problem persist, you may need to replace your RAM.
Note: If you have two RAMs on your pc, might as well clean them both, and then test each RAM to find out if either one of them or both are busted.
