The computer has a 300W powersupply from factory, I would buy a 400W powersuplly for it, depending what components it has inside, if the video card is upgraded to a new one 300W won't be enought, and in that case even 500W might be a good choise. if its with the original parts from the factory it should do fine with either 300W or 400W. ATX here are powersupplies: note that if the link isn't clickable then select it completely, copy and then paste it to your addressline to open the page.

Try a different monitor (borrow one). If that doesn't work, you need to take it to the shop.

When i turn the computer on, it turns on but the blue light just starts blinking and nothing appears on the monitor?

Could be a bad power supply in the computer. Most power supplies are pretty cheap these days. Open up the PC and see which version you need. Most lekely an ATX. Good Luck!

Will testing the power supply by shorting the green wire with a black wire with a paper clip damage my system?

OH YES!!! dont even try that not only will it damage your system it might also damage YOU!!! if you are worried about your power supply check the connections from the power supply to the motherboard WHILE THE SYSTEM IS NOT PLUGGED IN!!! and if all connections are connected SECURELY than try to plug it into a different outlet

GT4022 Gateway FIC KTBC51G Motherboard died

How did you determine that the MB was dead? Do you know how to use a post card and do you have one? How old is your computer and is it worth it to replace the MB? It is usually fairly easy to find a replacement MB on Ebay. Although, today desktops are so inexpensive that you may want to try that route. If you do replace the MB make sure that your power supply is adequate. We build systems every day and we never use less than 450W. If you do decide to replace the MB email me if you run into any problems and I'll see if I can assist you.

I have a Gateway GT4022 that recently stopped working. When the power button is depressed, the fans will kick over for less than a second and then the system shuts down. It never gets to the BIOS and no...

Power supplies shut off automatically when one of the voltage wires is shorted to ground somewhere. This is why you see the fan kick over for a second and quit. This is probably a bad motherboard.

Power went out the other night while my Gateway GT4022 was on. It won't turn back on now, no lights, no fans...replaced power supply, still same problem...thanks

If the power went out while it was on it may have been given a surge. If that is the case the motherboard is going to need to be replaced. Check the power supply connection on the motherboard if it is discolored then that is the problem.

Gateway GT4022 Motherboard Failure

The capacitors in the onboard power supplies fail. There are usually visible signs in the form of the ends of the caps being swelled up. Happens to monitors too, and not just the Gateway brand is affected. It's not bad design, but the capacitor makers made a batch (and it's a big batch!) of parts with bad chemistry, and sold them to lots of manufacturers. Replacing the caps fixes the problems, but the work involves good soldering skills. Yeah, you can go buy another brand, but given what I just shared with you, you may find problems again. Even the replacement parts can go bad. Regarding your class action idea, yeah you can sue anybody for anything these days but bear in mind: the manufacturer's warranty sets the terms, and you agreed to those terms when you bought the product. The warranty is a legal and binding contract both ways. And if it has expired, it has expired. The only exception may be specific state laws that mandate rights or extensions not specified in the warranty contract. Your class-action is then limited to owners within that state's jurisdiction.

Google motherboards. XD

Looks like your motherboard is actually pretty good. What do you need to replace it for?

Here's a good website:
Click motherboards or motherboards with cpu included.
Another website, gives you a list of motherboards and where to buy them.
Usually, motherboards under $100 are old or cheap.

If you need an exact copy of the one in your GT4022
this is your motherboard on
just google that motherboard and you should be able to find an exact copy to buy.
