Question about Gateway GT4016 Desktop PC
My computer isn't really booting up.
If I leave it alone off the power for a while and then try to boot up. It will start off slow running the fan then the blue light will light up and the monitor will come on. It will get to the Gateway Screen that says F10 for Boot Selection or F2 for Bios then stop. Then it will go back to just the fan running.
I left it for a really long time off the power... It started up the same way as before but got all the way to the Windows load screen before the monitor messed up and it was just the fan working again.
So whats the problem?
Booting files corrupted try to boot by inserting windows 98 bootable cd or windows xp bootable cd

That indicates a hardware problem. From your description I would check the cpu or suspect it as being the problem. It can be a ram problem as well.

Hello, is it supposed to? on some machines you have to press DEL; others F8. Also, don't just press it once as you might be missing the point in the boot-up sequence where it 'looks' for some input from the kbd..... try and keep tapping the key as it's powering up. Regards, nicam49
