Question about Gateway GT4022 PC Desktop
Id say not having a fan will cause heat to build over stressing the power supply & motherboard.
Do you have a bluelight on powerbutton after you turn it on... no? if no blue light but fans come on or yellow light comes on but no blue.....then your board is fried.
I see this every couple of months or so. If you dont belive me look on ebay at all the people selling gateways with no video.
Gateway Computers ****... period.
Dont buy them. people always bring me gateways and say "The screen wont come on". IF it dont have any video then usually what has happened is that the Power supply started going bad, causing Motherboard failure. This is a result of shotty craftmanship.
But if you have already been suckered into buying one. Id suggest you GET A NEW POWER SUPPLY BEFORE IT BURNS YOUR BOARD. A $30 power supply is better than having to buy a powersupply & a motherboard.
Driver Support for Gateways also sucks. However I have archived ethernet & video chipset drivers I have also built XP drivers if you want to downgrade & ditch Vista (since Vista Sucks)
E-mail me at Josh26Indy@yahoo.com for drivers

Here's a link to an article that may help you to troubleshoot your situation.
If you have no fan, and no led lights, this could indicate either no power to the computer, or possibly a failed power supply. If the latter, you can have it load tested by a local computer tech to be sure it's gone bad, and replace it with a new one for around $25.00. That is on of the most common hardware failures in aging systems, so it's a likely place to check.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
