The four beeps usually indicate a memory problem and it won't pass it's Power On Self Test. Try reseating the memory sticks, or, if you have two of them, take one out and try to start the machine and then swap them.
If this doesn't solve the problem, you most likely have a bad motherboard.

It should at least beep. Those beeps are diagnostic codes. Listen to the beeps and google 'bios error beep codes'. If it doesn't beep, the motherboard must be replaced.

We leave our computer turned on at night but we turn off the monitor. The last two weeks when we have turned on our monitor in the morning it will show the desktop but when we move the mouse the monitor...


Yes. Do not turn the monitor off by its power switch, let the computer do the work for you. Alot of times when people use the power switch to turn off the monitor, the computer sees that all of a sudden the monitor has been disconnected from the pc. when that happens the pc sees it as a device beimg unplugged and removes that certain device from the pc's list of things that should be connected, and when you turn it back on the pc sees it again and starts loading drivers for that new part(monitor)

My Gateway LCD Monitor was fine last night this morning to my surprise the screen was full of blue and white horizontal lines. I tried restarting the computer and then I couldn't even get it to turn on....


the montor wont turn on? or the pc?
the lines mean you may need to have the bulb changed. The bulb should last up to four years but sometimes you get a dud. It also depends on whether you bought the TV new or not. If that's the case, you don't know how long that TV ran each day or for how many days it was on display.

My mouse stopped working


Check the connection to the motherboard, it's under the keyboard. Occasionally these will work loose or need cleaned. Still no mouse, then try a system restore. If the doesn't do it, then it's a faulty touch pad and will need to be replaced.
