Question about Gateway GT4022 PC Desktop

1 Answer

I have a Gateway GT4022 that recently stopped working. When the power button is depressed, the fans will kick over for less than a second and then the system shuts down. It never gets to the BIOS and no screen flash is present. Thinking it was the power supply, I swapped the Gateway supply out with another working supply but had the same result. Any ideas about what to try next?

Power supplies shut off automatically when one of the voltage wires is shorted to ground somewhere. This is why you see the fan kick over for a second and quit. This is probably a bad motherboard.

Try a different monitor (borrow one). If that doesn't work, you need to take it to the shop.

Gateway GT4022 Motherboard failed


Well, I think gateway is just a computer manufacturer, so if you are still under warranty, you could possibly get a replacement. But before doing anything, and if you are comfortable with doing so, open up the side of the casing, and take a look around, see if any cables seem unconnected.

Power went out the other night while my Gateway GT4022 was on. It won't turn back on now, no lights, no fans...replaced power supply, still same problem...thanks


If the power went out while it was on it may have been given a surge. If that is the case the motherboard is going to need to be replaced. Check the power supply connection on the motherboard if it is discolored then that is the problem.

My gateway gt4022 won't boot. I don't think even at bios. My monitor says that it does receives any signal. I try changing the power supply but I don't think its a power supply issue since the fan kicks in...


Here are different things you can try:

Make sure there are no loose cables
Try a different monitor
Press F8 when the computer turns on.
Check to see if the lights on the keyboard turn on: this means its posting.

No power except fan


It's your CPU. It sounds like you didn't apply the thermal liquid between your CPU and fan.
