Why does my GM5420 Tower start up, but doesn't Read/Register screen?


I am not familiar with Gateway machines but this should work for most computers. You will have do some reading up. Yes it's probably a VGA (15 pin D-sub) the connector is often blue but can be any colour)

If your mouse/k-b etc are wireless they may need fresh batteries.

It may be the graphics facilities on your computer are u/s. It's quite awkward to solve this problem because you can't see what you are doing. You might try drivers for the monitor you are using (do not pay for these and be careful to void websites which are sources of adware or other malware) though this is unlikely as basic graphics are supplied in the BIOS

Try "gateway" support, or the "gateway" or other computer forums.

Read this http://www.pcguide.com/vb/showthread.php?70528-Upgrading-Video-Card-on-Gateway-GM5420

If there is a peripheral graphics card and your machine has on board graphics / video enter the BIOS (read up) and choose on - board video.

Try a graphics card (or on-board, or a different one known to work - see one of the many articles on how to set up a graphics card) Borrow one.

Essentially my course of action is try an alternative graphics facility to the one you have at the time of your post.

(Ihave just looked at the specification for this model at http://www.cnet.com/products/gateway-gm5420-core-2-duo-e6300-1-86-ghz-2-gb-320-gb/specs/
and it has on board Intel graphics default. Assuming the hasn't been an graphics 'upgrade' on your PC

You might find this webpage helpful (it has a troubleshooting section in the service manual)

Basically you have two choices for installation of video card:
1. To purchase small form factor PCIe card suitable for installation on 1U server chasis or
2. Purchase PCI express riser card and to install most full-sized PCI Express cards (Check this link for PCI Riser )

It sounds like you may have forgotten to turn off the on-board video. If you insert a graphics card when you have been using the on-board graphics before, you need to go into setup ( on Dell it usually involves tapping the F2 button before Windows loads) and turn off the onboard graphics or windows may try to load 2 video drivers and fail

Hi Keith, the Intel D845GVAD2 board uses an integrated graphics card for video & also uses your system memory to function.
Suggest, you remove the system memory & clean the contacts with alcohol. (Allow time for the alcohol to dry). Blow the memory slots out with canned air to remove any dust build up. Reseat your memory & boot the system. (No display)?
From your description it sounds like the integrated graphics controller may be bad. The only way to test this would be to add a PCI video card to the system.
The board’s bios uses auto detect. If you add a PCI graphics card to the system the bios should auto detect the PCI video card & load display.
There is a chance that the controller is too damaged & the bios will not see the PCI graphics add in card. In this case the board would be considered bad. If you have a local computer shop or know of someone who may (have a known to be good) PCI video card, you can ask to borrow it & test your system for video display.
Here is a link to an inexpensive PCI card:

DVD Drive (any double layer)
Sound card (on board is enough), however you can improve later adding a new one, but you don't need that)
Good Graphics card (At least 256 MB)

Kogie monitor


Hi,
check your graphics cards settings in the bios.
set to AGP/IDE as appropriate.
use another monitor if necessary.
Also check the graphics card i.e on-board or PCI/AGP Cards functioning correctly.
