Question about E-Machines GM5260 (1009304) PC Desktop
I have i problem with my gateway GM5260 i changed the menu that turns on when you click F2 during startup and accidentally edited something wrong now when i press the power button the computer sometimes beeps three time and turn the fan on full blast but doesn't do anything after that and the screen doesn't receive any output from the desktop
You can restore the "menu" of the "startup" to how it was before.
The idea is to reset the CMOS/BIOS to the original factory settings. There are 2 ways of doing this:
1. Is to hit F2 again and look for Default Settings, click on that, save and exit; or
2. (Preferably), open your PC and look for the reset jumper (3 terminal with 2 shorted via a jumper). This is normally located very near the backup Lithium battery. Temporarily, move the jumper to the opposite pair and replace back to original position after a couple of seconds.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need additional information..
Good luck and kind regards.
