Downloaded windows 7 upgrade which hasd an expansion pack on it - computer booted and was uploading changes when computer froze adn now screenis black with blinking cursor on boot. I tried a boot recovery...

Turn the pc off and turn it back on again. As soon as you turn it on, press the f2, f8 or delete key to get the pc to go into the bios system. Try each key one time and if it does not stop the startup and open the bios system, turn the pc off and restart it again and try the next one. If you can get the pc to go into the bios system, you can retstore the pc back to the last known good configuration. Then save to CMOS and exit. Then restart the pc again and it should start normally. You can also buy a windows 7 disk and put it in the drive and restart the pc to get it to boot from the disk and restore it by reinstalling the operating system.

Problem of ventilation with my computer

The first thing to find out is if it's actually from lack of ventilation, pop your case open (typically held on by a couple of screws at the back), of course don't touch anything inside of it, computers are ultra sensitive to even the most minor static!

Try running it with the case open. This will also allow you to see if you have an issue like perhaps your CPU cooling fan (the fan on top of the heat sink (big metal block) in the middle of your computer.

You can also find simple programs that can tell you the internal temperature of your PC. (but you need to get it running for one of those to help you! :))

I have a 5200 desktop gateway i need to pull the

As you face the computer the Left side comes off.

Computer off, and unplugged from power.

Press the Power On button in, and hold it in for a count of five seconds, then let go.
This is to drain residual power from the computer.

Come around to the backside of the computer.
On the right side of the computer, (Facing the back of the computer), there are two large Thumbscrews.

One towards the top along the right edge, one towards the bottom, of the right edge.

Turn each one to the Left to loosen, and loosen them all the way.
They may not come all the way out, of the edge of the cover.

On the side of the side panel cover, is an indention.
This is a place to put your fingers, and pull back on the cover towards the rear of the computer.
(Or pull towards you)

The side panel cover only slides back about an inch, then it is tilted out, and lifted up.
Set the cover aside.

BEFORE you reach inside your computer, Touch the metal frame of the open computer case.
This will relieve your body of Static electricity.

Your body carries Static electricity, and Static will fry out the delicate computer hardware components, inside a computer.

Computer unplugged from power, you are safe.
Touch the metal frame, your computer is safe.

(Additionally; If you get up in the middle of working on your computer, walk away then return: Touch the metal frame of the open computer case again)

This is Gateway Support, and the User Guides download page for the Gateway 5200X,

On this page Left-click on the last file listed,
Gateway Computer User Guide.

Opening the computer case is on Page 50 ,
or in the Bookmarks, it's Accessories>Opening the case.

Computer boots but freezes on logo screen

To much is running when starting up.
Press Control Alt Delete and get into system to see what is running.
I would defrag it, clean up the disk space and also run and update. You may need some updates.

Broke off on/off button on Dell Dimension C521 unit

Call Dell sale if the computer is out of warranty or call technical support if in warranty and get the button replaced. As a fix for now use a screw driver to push the button in adn make sure you do not touch the screw driver metal part or you'll get a shock is the screw driver is touching the wire in the button. You can also short (make a direct contact of the two cables) the cables coming to the button once to get the system started but dont keep them short.

Computer does not turn on, since i opened it

Not to worry...As you can see this is just a loose contact....Since you seem like a novice user attempting to fix it yourself is not advisable.Just get someone who knows electronics to fix it for you...
And one more thing dont touch any part inside the computer with bare hands.Walking on a dry floor will charge your body to a static voltage of upto 5000v and is more than enough to damage the motherboard...
For now just get someone to fix that power cable for you!
