Question about Gateway Profile 5 PC Desktop

Profile 5 shut down problem.

I have a gateway Profile 5, and it keeps shuting down on it's own; by shut down I mean it's like the plug is being pulled. No warning, no error msg, just off. The only thiing I've noticed is that the green indicatior on the PSU will "pulse" - not blink, but get brighter and darker. I had it re-loaded, replaced the surge protector, and had it pluged directly into the wall. Any ideas ?

SOURCE: My gateway profile 5 won't turn on. Checked plugs

Try to power drain it. Unplug all the power related devices that are connected, like a monitor data cable or external printer, just unplug all the cables in the back after you shut down your computer, press the power switch of your computer and keep it pressed for about 45 secs, release it, plug everything back and check it if its working. As well double check if that particular socket is usable, plug something else in to see if its working.

THE NOTEBOOK KEEP SAYING THAT USER PROFILE SERVICE FAIL TO LOGON,WHAT DOES THAT MEAN


You picked up a virus that has removed and deleted the user profile page and windows will go no further. All you can do is install a new OS after copying your data files to another computer.

My gateway profile 4 desktop will not power on. nothing happens when I push the power button. measured 12v at the computer end of power cord. switch look ok. worked fine yesterday.


Hi,

Remove the power cord and then take out the battery. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds, then plug in just the AC powercord and try turn the laptop on.

If it turns on let it boot into the operating system and then shut it down and put the battery back in.

Hopefully this will resolve the problem but if it doesn't turn on again with the battery in there is a problem with the battery.


Post back if you need more advice.


Good luck.

Our emachines desktop T5048 keeps shutting back down immediately after start-up. This began after I changed something on the power profile. I'm not sure if the two are related though. Please help?


Yes. The power profile shuts things down to save energy. GO back to the power profile and chance the amount of time(longer) before you want it to hybernate.

2002 gateway profile shutdown problem


You need to uninstall the graphic drivers for the card and install new ones from the makers site.

This can be done in device manager by right clicking in the display adapter and then uninstall. Then reboot and install the new up to date ones. Sounds like the ones you have in now are damaged or corrupt.

Doesnt explain the slowdown though sorry :(

LG LM190E05 (SL)(01)


Gateway has multiple part numbers for the LCD inverter board. Part numbers V01216400103, V01216400104, and V01216400105 are for the Profile 5 and 5.5 series with a 15" monitor. Part number V01316500104 and maybe others are installed in Profile 5 and 5.5 with 17" and 19" monitors. Also the LG part number for the 19" monitor provided in Gateway literature is LM190E02-A4. There is no mention of the LM190E05 SL in the product specs I have seen. Gateway does make special purpose runs and does change components without much much notice though. The definitive source of exact information is Gateway Tech Support. It may cost you a couple of bucks to get answers, but the value added to your system with a 19" vs. 15" screen to say nothing of the viewing comfort should far outweigh the cost of accurate information. Good luck with your upgrade. Please keep me posted on whatever you try be it successful or not. I too have a Profile 5.5 with 15" and have been considering the larger screen upgrade. BillyB.
