Hi,
please try following DIY

1.REFIX ALL THE CONNECTORS.
2.CHECK WHETHER POWER IS COMING AND FAN IS MOVING BEHIND THE CPU.
3.IF MOVING CHECK ON K/B LEDS ARE GLOWING.
4.IF GLOWING THEN TAP THE NUM LOCK AND CHECK WHETHER IT IS RESPONDING.
5.IF RESPONDING THEN TRY TO REFIX THE RAM IF IT IS POSSIBLE TO YOU.
6.IF NOT THIS MIGHT BE THE ISSUE WITH SYSTEM BOARD.

Dear Lisa,
I think you need to start from SMPS.Check the supply for the voltages on all the jacks.2nd culprit can be *********** board. If you are not conversant with PC hardware, better to get it serviced with an qualified person.
Best of Luck.Please rank me appropriately. If you want any clarification, Please get back to me

I have a GT4016 Gateway Desktop. I want to purchase a 2Terra Internal Hard Drive. Would this be a Sata or Pata Drive


If the computer is already open its easy to tell if you have SATA or PATA capabilites. Most modern computers have SATA and maybe one PATA. An SATA plug looks like a sideways L. The PATA ports have a couple rows of pins and require a cable ribbon. If you have both kinds of ports you should go with the SATA because this has a much higher bandwith (1.5 Gbps I think)

GT4016 freshly reformatted with recovery CD. No drivers. No connection (to internet). Where do I find the driver (to download and burn to CD) enabling my GT4016 to connect through ethernet?


Here is a link to the drivers you need:

http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/search.asp?st=pn&param=1008842

Be sure to download the audio, video, motherboard and modem drivers. Just put them on a san disk or equivalent media storage device. When you have installed the drivers check the device manager to see if anything else is missing (a yellow question mark next to a device name). Hope you get fixed.

Gateway gt4016 problem


Check your monitor on another computer. If it is ok connect it to your bad computer. Open the CPU case and unplug all the data cables and power cables to HDD, floppy and cd/dvd. Remove keyboard and mouse. also remove pci cards if any. You didn't mention about video card. I guess it is onboard. Now put it on an see. If nothing happens blame the motherboard.
