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.

MY Gateway GT4016 Will not start anymore, i first replaced the power Suply and nothing happened. the fan runs and a light blinks then it shuts down again, i used to start it by just pressing the button and...


Make sure all fans are running power supply one to hehe Maybe a bad power button? I had a gateway that did some thing very close to that because the cpu fan was not turning and a hp that did that because the power supply fan was not turning. Thats where I would start then make sure the mem is seated good and not bad you know the drill ;) if you replaced the power supply with a factory replacment it should be a voltage or wattage problem. Might also try a hard boot the power plug take the cmos bat out hold the power button down for 20 or 30 secs some people say to leave the cmos bat out and try to fire it up. I know that works on some laptops but I always had better luck putting it back in for desktops cant hurt to try it. If you have two ram sticks in it pull the # 2 one and try to fire it up if nothing changes swap the # 2 one with # 1 leaveing slot 2 open and try it that will tell ya if it is a bad ram stick I dunno just my two cents hope it helps

Gateway GT4016 boots but nothing shows on the monitor


Without more specific information it is hard to tell. Did you just buy a new video card? Is it the the right type? Where did you get the second card? Have you tried it in another PC or talked to the store you got it from? Maybe the source can test it. Your PC can take an optional PCI express x16. Make sure you are using the right display adapter expansion slot. Note: PCI-e is not the same as PCI-X. They are not compatible. You want PCI-e.

4016 gATEWAY computer wont boot


Plug off your Hard Disk and give a try. If the system boots then, its a prob with HDD. Else, it may be because of the monitor, or the RAM module.

Thank you!
