Question about Gateway GT5220 PC Desktop
My computer keeps booting on and off. I thought it was the fan shutting down but that's not the problem. If I let it go it will eventually stop turning off and on but then it completely freezes and I can't even make the cursor move when I use the mouse.
Download memtest and burn the iso to a cd and boot from it to test your ram, it usually only takes a few minutes to see if your ram is bad or not, otherwise ive had computers with bad system boards (blown capacitors) that reboot themselves, and also computers that are overheating reboot themselves, check to make sure all air vents aren't blocked and that all of your case fans run well

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps
