Does the computer appear to be on still? No display would indicate either a loose monitor cable, a bad monitor or a failed video card. If you can borrow another monitor try it on the computer to see if you get the same result.

SOURCE: My Gateway GT5678 system powers up as if normal but no display.

When you say you tested the other components, did you test the graphics card in particular on another computer?

If so, and if it worked, you can try clearing the CMOS. There should be an easily identifiable switch or set of pins with a jumper. With the power cable unplugged, set the switch or move the jumper into the clearing position, leave for about 30 seconds, then move it back into position (important! do *not* power on the system while the jumper or switch is in the reset/clear position). Try booting up the system again.

If it now has a picture, you will probably need to enter the BIOS and, at the least, make a basic change such as setting the first boot device (defaults to the cd/dvd-drive, then the primary-channel+master hard drive).

If you still have no picture, and you are using on-board graphics only, then there is a chance that the on-board graphics chip may have died.

To test this, you can put a graphics card into the system (I recommend a cheap, second hand one that you know is working, in case the motherboard ends up damaging the card), repeat the CMOS clearing process, and then try booting up the system with the monitor plugged into the graphics card.

If you get a picture, there's a good chance the on-board graphics have died. You'll want to go disable the chip to prevent it from causing any further problems by finding it under the 'integrated peripherals' section of your BIOS. If it's not located there, search for an option for the 'primary graphics adaptor', and change it from IGP to PCI-E. Then find any option for 'vga memory share size', and see if you can set that to 0mb. If it is the model with the 2400XT with its own 256mb memory, you'll need to find an option to disable it entirely.

Please post a followup if none of the above was able to help you, with clarification if possible as to what you're using and have tried, and I'll see if I can help further.

Gateway wont startup. One beep followed by two short


I would suspect the power supply or a power connection. The only other issue might be a motherboard, which is a bit more involved. Try another power supply if you have one around.

No display but ram and processor is okey..


1.Confirm the Gateway notebook is not powered off or in standby mode. Tap the power button to turn on or wake the computer.

2.Check the screen brightness. Hold down the "Fn" key, then tap the up arrow on the directional pad to increase the brightness of your Gateway 400's display.

3.Toggle the notebook display. If you have an external monitor hooked up to the laptop, hold down "Fn." Press "F3" until the display switches to the laptop, or until both the laptop and the external monitor display an active screen.

PC won't boot up just get blinking cursor in the upper left corner of screen


That blinking cursor is the way in which the BIOS is telling you that Windows is missing - its most critical, core files have been corrupted beyond repair. The only thing you can do is to reinstall using the recovery cd.

My Gateway GT5678 does not burn CD's... when I insert a CD-R or anything other than a DVD, it does not recognize it.


My opinion would be that your CD/DVD drive has gone bad and must be replaced. This is not uncommon.

Why cant i see it on my tv using the hdmi cable ?


You need an HDMI Driver for your video card installed & enabled FIRST. Go to Gateway find your model PC, and download the HDMI audio driver and install, then you should be OK.
