You are having a conflict. There could be a hardware that is not allowing you to turn it on.
Take the memory ram out and clean them up with a pencil eraser.
Also check what it means in the Gateway website.

SOURCE: computer beeps five times power light blink red

The beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the ram,all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk,and remains active untill turned off.

make sure that your RAM modules and Cmos battery are securely seated

on some motherboards Cmos batteries are soldered in


Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions IDE SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

if its a flat 40 pin ide it will be the first to fail


check the graphics card is seated properly with no dust in the socket you might have to remove it to check for dust reinstall it

restart your computer the found new hardware wizard should activate

a computer needs power and data to travel through every working device and to its continue its cycle and to have and end to function

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure make sure the connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty
a computer needs all electric current and computer data to travel to and through every working device and have an end to work properly click start right click on my computer so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

If after doing all of the above recommendations you continue to have the same issue unfortunately it is likely that you have bad MOTHERBOARD PSU CPU or RAM

The next step would be either to replace these components or have the computer serviced. If you plan on doing the repairs yourself or you are a repair shop it is suggested that you replace the Motherboard first RAM CPU and then power supply in that order or try swappable parts from other computers
hope this helps

How do i change the wifi card in a gateway nv55s02u


changing the wifi card requires disassembling the laptop by removing the battery pack, bottom panel and possibly more. check online to see if gateway publishes a maintenance or repair guide. it may be easier to spend ten or twenty dollars on a small usb wireless adapter and just plug it into ausb port on the laptop.

Gateway laptop i push power button it wont boot up but leds in front flash 4 times


Try holding down the power button instead of just pushing it. I had this problem with my HP dv7 and holding the power button down for around 5 seconds worked for me. Also make sure that its plugged in to a power source.

Power will not come on even after system reset. Pushed reset and LED flashes then after it stops flashing TV will still not turn on.


do self check: when it shuts off and power light goes off:

On front of set press and hold both menu and input (device) buttons for at least five seconds and release both buttons.

Power light will blink a two digit error code, like 2 blinks, 2 blinks, a pause and repeat it several times.

Let me know what error code and I will assist you

M-series gateway (m1629) press start button, nothing


Taken apart, looking for abnormal solder etc checked powers switches decided that this unit was acting like it may have shut down due to excessive heat issue. pulled battery on board, tested ok, re-installed everything and found that this unit now is active. Conclusion: I suspect the bios shut this unit down, hard reset correct this issue.

My Gateway laptop shuts off after five minutes. I


Hi there.
There is probably dust trapped in the air vents and around the CPU fan, the best way to clear it is to turn the machine off, get a can of compressed air and give short blast through the air vents.
The CPU fan is usually located under the laptop and give a couple of blasts through that too.
Once your happy that all the dust is removed you can turn the laptop on again and it should stay on for much longer.
The cooling pad won't make any difference if the issue is dust.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!
