Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have an old G6-350 Gateway Computer running Win 98. It only has a tiny Power Supply, and when I plug it into any of the Moniters I have here, It says that the Moniter is too HD, I'm wondering if I could use a bigger Power Supply on it and see if that will solve the problem. The Power Supply on it right now is 90W if I'm reading it right.

I'd say give it a shot. It's an oldie anyways so if it doesn't work, no biggie.

My DX483101e, the old hard drive (win 7 pre) went black, would not start, installed a new 1T Western dig hard drive, added win 8 (bad idea), eventually it went black, would not start. A friend got them...


Check in BIOS that your HDD id showing.

if it is showing then do the DPS self Test of the HDD. Surely it will solve your issue.

Otherwise it will be the issue of motherboard.

My gateway dx4300-03 starts up fine and then about 5 minutes into working the monitor goes blank and the computer seems to go into sleep mode and won't restart until I unplug from the back and re plug in. ...

Hi, The solution to fix the problem is by changing your power supply. Just make sure that you replace it with a 500W or higher and not with the same 300W which does not have enough power for this system, plus it is defective. I have changed the power supply to 4 diferent gateway PCs same model dx4300. And all 4 are working perfect. And run a check disk on CMD to fix the disk errors that were created every time you unplugged it and turned it on again.

Gateway GT4010 boots then starts beeping and shuts off


First check your power supply section and check your power fan that is running properly. if ok then the suspected area is your processor section. please check it if its collar fan nor running properly then clean up or change that. and the other advice is please check your processor pin which are too tiny. be careful about these.

My gateway 700 xl doesnt boot


Unplug the power from you 700xl and from you monitor. Try removing the cmos battery and reinstalling it. Then, plug everything back in and try restarting. If it continues to give you the yellow light, you may need to replace the CMOS battery, especially if it is more than two years old.

Another thing to consider is if your power supply is underpowered for the number of external devices you have plugged into it (i.e., cd, dvd, external hard drives, printers, pci cards, etc). Gateway installed very low powered power supplies in their 700xl desktop computers. Usually only around 250 watts maximum.

If you are replacing the power supply with another 250 watt maximum power supply, and you have a lot of external devices plugged in, you may need at least a 350 watt power supply....if your CMOS battery is not the problem.

Hey man hows it going


Have you test the power supply for voltage, Is it good, if it is then the problem of course is not power supply. Some power supplies have a light on them. Also does the power supply fan work, If not almost always sure sign power supply is gone. Old power supplies are still available Every time I junk a computer P4 or older I save to power supply, What wattage?
