Gateway DS Profile 4X

Not sure what is up. When I power on the pc, all I get is a "white" screen. It never loads up the BIOS or the OS. I cannot access the BIOS. It just powers on as "white" and that is all. Could this be a video thing or something else?

I have a gateway DS Profile 5X, a small spot appeared on the lower right on the screen and it is now expandig like an ink spot. What can I do to fix this problem?


New screen, I expect. That's the liquid crystal seeping out, especially if it's not some prank software someone installed. Can you test another screen? You didn't get one of those easygoing replacement warranties, did you?

I have a gateway 400 VTX that powers on to the Bios screen then goes to another screen that says operating system not found. I have tried to load the os cd and it looks like its loadind and says windows is...


Sounds like u need to go into CMOS (System Setup) upon boot & make sure that the HARD DRIVE is the FIRST item in the BOOT ORDER and NOT your CD DRIVE. Also, make sure your Hard Drive shows up in the CMOS. If it does, then note what it says about the hard drive as it boots... If it is a bad hard drive, then nothing will install to it unless it is fixed or replaced.

Black Screen with White bar is when Windows Vista loading. So it seems there is maybe problem with Windows.
When your Toshiba is starting up - try press F12 to enter Bios, to check if everything is OK.
If you have Vista on CD/DVD - you can try press "C" on keyboard when Toshiba start, to boot from CD/DVD and start to repair your OS, or reinstall it completely.

Powers on, Fan runs at high for 10Sec's then goes off, but no OS loading nor any visual activity on the Display.


your screen may be broken.
Do you see the BIOS message at the beginning of the boot up? If you don't, then the screen or the video card/circuit is dead

Gateway 5228 wont boot no lights on keyboard


does it load the bios screen? Does it get to the windows load screens if it does go to the bios screen? Does the computer power on at all?

Sometimes what happens is the bios chip can be faulty or die and this will have to be replaced to fix the issue. If the computer is not powering on then it is more than likely a power supply issue.

(just in case, you might want to make sure that all of the adapters that come from the power supply are connected to the motherboard as well)

Profile 5.5 during startup screen goes blank


If the video card is an "onboard type" Is is not easy to replace.If you have a seperate video card, you may replace it with a like type, PCI, AGP,PCIe,etc. or if you computer has an open slot a video card can be added and turn off the "onboard video" in start up screen BIOS .    Since this is a GATEWAY(I do not know the model) computer you also always have the option of a complete restore .
