Computer is not booting

Hello, I have a Gateway 310S and one day when I woke up to turn it on, it would not load anymore.  I am knowledgible on computers, and I think the motherboard is shot but i would like a second opinion.  The power light works, the power supply works, but all i see is a red light that is not loading on the motherboard.

Go to click on support, input your serial number or model number and all the drivers are there. I just got them all this weekend.

I have 10 year old gateway desktop, it suddenly woke up one morning & i can only get the gateway logo to come up Help

sounds like the boot file is corrupted or deleted. it may be fixed by shop with the appropriate tools. the file must be replaced and most people do not have access. otherwise you could restore the 'whole' system from backups if you have them or if you created a repair disk
that may work. restoring takes time but its cheaper than a shop doing it or fixing it. good luck

Can the 310S PC Desktop Use HDDs running at 7200 RPM?

If there are unused connectors on the hard drive ribbon cables, and unused molex power plugs, then yes. Be sure to securely mount the drives in the case. Also check the jumper settings for all drives.

Monitor went blank

Let's try to isolate the problem:

-If possible try both monitors on a different computer.

-does the computer makes any sound when you turn it on?... do you get any image at all when you turn it on?

I wonder if that is a computer virus.

Try putting the computer into safe mode by shutting the computer down, wait 30 seconds, turn if back on.

At the beginning of the boot press and hold down the f8 button. Use the up and down arrow keys to select safe mode and press enter.

After windows finishes starting up in safe mode, restart your computer the normal way.

If the login screen still appears that way and you can get into safe mode, I can tell you how to go into the control panel and change the login screen to the other mode. That should work then.

Blank monitor

Try this.

Turn the computer off.

Press F8 on the keyboard and select safe mode.

See if the monitor is corrected with that process and restart windows in the normal mode.

My computer starts but before booting it shuts down.

You may have lost part of your windows program. If you have a system restore disk, you can run a system restore and probably fix your problem.
Some of your windows files have gotten deleted. When windows gets to this point all windows knows to do is restart. A virus can cause this problem.
