Question about Gateway GT5220 PC Desktop
I push the power button it lights up. whithin the next 15 seconds, dvd & harddrive light flashes in unison normally, if you place a cd in it seems to be trying to read it. After that just sets there untill you hold the power button untill it shuts down. No beeps, no video to monitor, the CPU fan running at top speed. I can push the power button again maybe once, twice,three or it could be 10's of times before it boots up and runs perfectly. Even when I installed software that auto reboots it runs smoothly thru the restart perfectly. I do know when it's going to boot, within that first 15 seconds if the CPU fan drops substantal rpms then the harddrive boots and were good to go again.
Did you look on gateways website for a bios update. the firmware on your motherboard maybe corrupt. go here and check since I dont have your serial number... gateway has a java based scanner that might be able to repair it for you
please rank me if you can
