Time for a new computer

Or-- install whatever parts are needed in the gateway
& load a fresh new version of the Windows Operating System
of your choice Win 7,8 or 10

Forget the warranty & just pay to have it fixed

I have 10 year old gateway desktop, it suddenly woke up one morning & i can only get the gateway logo to come up Help


sounds like the boot file is corrupted or deleted. it may be fixed by shop with the appropriate tools. the file must be replaced and most people do not have access. otherwise you could restore the 'whole' system from backups if you have them or if you created a repair disk
that may work. restoring takes time but its cheaper than a shop doing it or fixing it. good luck

I ahve a gateway 5662 desktop, when I power it up, the processor boots inconsistently, sometimes I get a blue screen, what do I do to amend this?


Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up

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 connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
hope this helps

Computer "turns on" i hear four to five beeps, but the monitor gets no signal. a friend gave me the computer, only once did i see it boot up fully but it froze up so i had to restart it and it wont work....


Without knowing the exact frequency/length of the beeps my first guess would be a bad stick of ram or a bad video card. If there is more than one stick of ram in the computer try it with one of the sticks pulled, pulling each stick until it does boot. if it doesnt, try pulling the video card. If you have on board video as well as a card, you can try it with just the on board and no video card. If not, borrow a vid card from someone. Doesnt have to be anything special, it can even be one of the old 4 MB PCI cards... just for diag. If that doesn't fix it, try pulling out any other cards that may be in it. Modem, sound, etc. etc.

and finally, here is a link to all the bios error codes for Gateway computers to help with further trouble shooting.

This might be a heating issue. Considering its 6 years old pop open the case and use dust off and spray it down until there isnt any dust left near, in or around the heat sink. try that and if it doesn't work try re-seating the heat sink on the possessor and clean off all the thermal paste and re apply some new thermal paste.

If display issue: connect an external monitor to see if any change.

Could be spyware - boot in Safe Mode (F8) - download, install and run SpyBot (spybot.com).

Good luck.
