Question about Gateway Profile 4 All In One (MPN PROFILE4SE) PC Desktop

Gateway profile 4 all in one computer

The power comes on but their is nothing but a white screen. I was told it was the video card but because it's made onto the motherboard,. I need the motherboard. Okay I purchased a motherboard, that didn't work and I thought I had a bad motherboard, so I purchased another one. Well, that didn't work either and I was told they were both tested and working prior to reaching me. Now I'm thinking what else could be the problem. If you have any suggestions,Please let me know.

Thanks..............................

This actually sounds like a LCD problem or an LCD inverter problem. Why dont you have the techies at the palce you buying these parts tested it before you actually buy the part?

Before you buy anything else try it with another monitor. Obviously if the other monitor works then its not your motherboard its your monitor. Update video drivers to ensure you have the latest.

On gateway w350i computer works HDMI works but LCD comes on but is only white screen please help


1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your display on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.

My gateway profile 4 all in one has a totally white screen with no display. Rebooted with normal


before thinking about replacing the video card

Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they might be faulty


if its a 40 pin flat ribbon type it will be the first to fail


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 something as small as a faulty electrical fan and its lead can cause you problems

computers need all power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error


make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket

if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free


restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard

if you need to replace the video card it will be attached to the rear of the vga lead inside your computer usually in a pga slot


Remove your computer's cables.

Turn your computer around so the back faces you.

Remove the two screws on the computer holding the right side of your computer to the case.

On many models of gateway computers, you only need to remove the screws with your hand. Remove the right side of the case to expose the interior.


Unscrew the metal plate of your old graphics card holding it to your computer's case. Remove the card by sliding it out of the motherboard.

Slide your new graphics card into the slot from where you removed the old one. Screw the metal plate to your computer's case.
Reassemble your computer and connect its cables
hope this helps

My laptop Gateway ml6720 has a black screen Ive replaced the battery and power adapter no change. The fan comes on and it sounds like it boots up but no screen.


Sounds like either the screen or the video adapter has gone bad.
Do this: Connect the computer to an external monitor (there is a SVGA plug on the side of the computer. Be sure when you turn it on that you press teh Fn-special function key combo that switches the video output to the external monitor. If the external monitor works, then it's your computer's screen. Possibly the inverter. If the external monitor shows nothing, then it's the video card (which may be built into your motherboard).

I was getting the blue screen for a few months, and now when I power my Gateway GM5084 the lights come on and I hear it running but nothing comes up on the monitor. It's like it's not connecting...


First I would try a different video card to see if your video card is faulty or not. If you still can't seem to get any picture it could be that the power supply on your computer is starting to fail and not providing enough power to the video card.

Usually your PC will beep if it is a video card issue so if you don't hear beeps I would guess the power supply is the culprit. A replacement power supply is not that expensive and is quite easy to install as well.

I need to find a replacement video card for my E-3400 . The cards that are readily available have the long flange for mounting. This one has a mounting flange that is about two inches wide. It also only...


The Gateway E-3400 Desktop computer, uses a Low Profile, ATI Rage 128 Pro graphics card, according to ATI Support.

It is an AGP 4X graphics adapter card.

(AGP - Accelerated Graphics Port)
Made around June 20, 2000.

This is the E-3400 Mid Tower System Manual,

http://support.gateway.com/s/manuals/servers/eseries/8505957.pdf

,(From Gateway. It's a PDF file), in case you do not have this manual anymore.

I see what you mean about the mount bracket.
REAL SMALL! The video card is a Low Profile card, but the mount bracket is Unusual!

From searching Gateway Support,

1.Looking through their graphics cards,

2.Looking for an ATI Rage 128 AGP 4X graphics card, that is Low Profile, and has the bracket I believe your computer uses,

(Based on the above E-3400 Mid Tower System Manual, and the photos on this website,

http://www.mayoousa.com/osc/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=989

Image 4),

4.I believe this is the graphics card you need from Gateway,

http://support.gateway.com/s/VIDCARD/ATI/6001587/600158703.shtml

The only way to be - Sure, is to physically look at the Product number on the video card you have now.

If this number does not match up, please come back, and state so.
I'll give you the link to the Gateway Support page, with all of the AGP video card product numbers, so you can match up to the correct one.

Availability? I don't know.
You'll have to contact Gateway yourself. They have Select Retailers.

What I do know.

The link above, where I stated I looked at the back of the Gateway E-3400, to see close detail of the VGA connector, and mount bracket of the video card.
(MayooUSA)

They're selling the entire tower unit for $24, and shipping is $20 in the USA.

Not advertising for this website. We don't do that here. I'm just stating what I found.

When turn on the gateway screen apear, but the monitor turn off or black and not apear nothing my computer is gateway profile 4 all in one


Your power settings may need to be changed, it appears to be going into sleep mode or power saving mode.

If you are using Vista, Click Start> Control Panel > Power Options > "choose when to turn off display" (in the left hand pane) and check that it says at least 10 minutes. Click apply and then ok.

Alternatively, right click on your desktop, select "personalise" and click on screen saver - then select "change power settings" to bring you to the same thing.

If you have xp, right click on your desktop and select "properties" then "screensaver| > "Power" and change it to turn off the monitor after 10 minutes. Click apply then ok.

If your monitor is going to sleep, either press a key or wiggle the mouse to wake it up.

No display on screen and solid amber light on pcs' power button


it seems to be an issue with the power supply as you already tried replacing the motherboard
power supply will be less expensive do try to get it replaced first

do check that monitor iss fine
unplug the blue VGA cable which connects your monitor to the tower
if a 4 colored box moves all over the screen the monitor is fine
and if it doesn't
get the monitor either repaired or get it replaced.
