Question about Gateway GT5220 PC Desktop
Gateway GT5220...came in this morning....computer was down, blue light on front was blinking....each time I attempt to boot the fan races, the blue light comes on, sometimes I can see the first boot page for a split second and sometimes not even that, keyboard lights blink but nothing else happens....how do I test the power supply?....does this seem to be the problem?
This does not sound like a power supply issuse
tap F8 while booting the PC
This should take you to the Advanced Boot option window
Use you up & down keys: Safe mode With Command propmts(Enter)
Operating System (Enter)
Sign in under your user name( or owner)
once at a command prompt (Black Screen)
Tyoe chkdsk /r (Enter)
You will get a message ( This valume is in use would you like to start a chkdsk on reboot (Y) (Enter) Reboot PC
This should start a chkdsk after the chkdsk is complete reboot the PC you should go to you profile (desktop with Icons)
