Gateway GT 5014 desktop not booting

Hi, I have tried to start my desktop one day morning and it didn't boot up. It has got the power but no display in the monitor. Yellow light in the front blinked for some time and disappeared. I can hear the fan sound but no signal of boot strapping. Warranty expired. What is the possible problem here? and what is the probable solution?

Gateway sx series sx2110g-uw318 boot menu


This is an snippet from the Gateway Website.

"In order to access the boot options on this portable computer, press the ESC or F10 key while the Gateway screen is displayed during the startup process. This opens a Boot menu with the option to start the computer to any of the available drives or to enter the BIOS Setup Utility. Use the UP ARROW and DOWN ARROW keys to select a menu option, and then press the ENTER key to start to the selected device.To "boot" (start) to a CD, DVD, or a floppy disk, the media must be in the drive when starting the computer."

My gateway desktop model gt5026e shuts down/reboots automatically. i cleaned the cooling fans and made sure they were working properly but it still reboots at random,

To isolate the issue, try to boot to the BIOS screen by tapping on F2 on boot. If it goes to the BIOS and does not restart, you have good hardware components. If the issue is still eminent in the BIOS, then you have a problem with your processor. You need to have it replaced.
If it is not hardware, we need to further isolate. Boot to Safe Mode by tapping on F8 on boot. Choose either safe mode or safe mode with networking.
No issues on safe mode: then the problem is with the advanced software. Try to remember when the issue started. Restore your computer setting to previous date before the issue started. (start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore). Once you have booted to normal mode, do not forget to update your security software and scan your system.
If there are issues with safe mode: There is bigger problem with your OS. Try system restore as well. Hopefully this fixes the issue. If it does not, you need to reformat your system.
Good Luck!

Gateway 5014 WinXP Media; fans run, won't boot, no screen on monitor. Replaced hardrive, same thing.

Try checking your RAM, if possible try reseating your RAM, if you have more than one RAMS try 1 RAM at a time..

Hope it helps!

My computer wont start

Does it have power coming in to your CPU? If none try to check the fuse at the back of the cPU on the power supply side.

My pc is super slow at startup. It takes a long time to boot when you first turn it on.

Start the PC, go to start menu-->run, then type "msconfig".
Look around at the boot and services tabs, and disable some software you know and could live without if it didn;t automatically load.
That should speed booting up. If not, and it is several months ago that you installed WIndows, try to reinstall it.
However, do backup all your data before you do that, everything on your Windows partition will be lost in reinstalling.

Gateway Gt 5220 computer powers on but will not boot

It's either the video card, memory, or motherboard.

I had the same problem with one of my desktop's. It ended up being the motherboard. Had to turn the computer on and off, on and off until eventually it would power on.

I'd start with reseating the memory and video card. Is your video onboard?

Let me know what happens and I'll keep throwing ideas your way.

Best of luck!
