Question about Gateway GT4016 Desktop PC
Before it crashed ,twice in the same wk my work was scrambled/distorted. rebooted and all was fine. days later ka-put. i tried a different monitor and (nothing),tried my monitor with another system and its working fine. tried a new power supply(nothing)swapped the ram cards (nothing)installed new mother board(nothing)removed dial up board(nothing) -- i use a cable modem--. my geek squad guy from best buy tried all these things. what else is there?
Try a different CPU. and also try a completely different set of know good memory. If after this the system still doesn't boot up then then the motherboard they installed in defective and if that the case? Get your money back.

Definately these all problems belonging to ur cpu. first check the motherboard & other internals by well known person. if the m.board is defective then change it with all new memory set.

Try installing a new video card.
I had the same problem and read someplace that motherboards on this model (GT4016) had issues with onboard video. I installed a PCI_E video card and the machine booted fine recognizing the new card. So far, things seem to be much better. I have also noted the cpu cooling fan now seems to be responding to system temp whereas it was running at minumum speed before.
