Question about Gateway GT4016 Desktop PC

2 Answers

PC powers up but then within 2 secs, it shuts off.

My desktop will not power on. The blue power link comes on for a split sec and then it shuts down by itself. I have replaced the power supply and still the same issue. Could it be the fan?

Thanks,

Ainoy

If it's plugged into a power supply (like a power strip), unplug it and plug it directly into the wall. If you have a battery backup it could be that your backup is going awry.

I had the same problem last week and that's what fixed it at work.

Hope that helps,
Christine

System runs from about 3 to 15 secs then shuts down. That doesn't give me enough time to do anything in the BIOS setup when pressing F2. Then the system refuses to start (by pressing the power button)...


Just to make sure thatnothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, videocard, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables toCD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged. The computer should stay on even without an operating system or hard drive installed.

Hi!

Please check for the cables coming into the motherboard from the power supply. Also try and check for any loose cables.

If that doesn't help then please get your power supply changed as its faulty.

Please rate this solution.

Thanks

Hmm... is still not working


Start your computer and tap the F8 key as soon as the computer begins to power-up. Keep tapping until you come to the Safe Mode screen. When the screen alerts you to the fact that you have chosen Safe Mode, click OK.

When you get to the desktop go to the control panel and launch System Properties. Go to Hardware and Device manager. Click the arrow next to the Display Adapter. Point at the adapter, right click and chooser Properties. Click the Driver Tab. Roll back the video driver to previous driver.

If indeed you have installed a new driver that is not compatible with your video card, then rolling it back to the original may very well take care of this problem.

Good luck!

My computer shuts down after 3 secs


Try to separate the power cord of your monitor from your system or maybe if your using UPS(uninterrupted power supply) directly plug the UPS to the wall outlet. either you can use pretty voltage regulator to the regulate the AC power.
if not solve the problem try to examine the your system power supply.
