Question about Gateway 560GE PC Desktop

1 Answer

After a power outage, tried to power computer. All I got was flashing keyboard and power light while I held in the power button. As soon as I let go, everything goes dard. No start up sounds or anything. Power is hooked up to surge protector and printer and monitor all powered back up okay. Only computer wasn't.

Sounds like it could be the power supply was damaged from the power outage. If you have another PC you could pull the ATX power supply out and install it in the gateway and see if it boots up. Power supplies are fairly inexpensive so look for an aftermarket one...buying a replacement from Gateway will cost alot more. If the power supply turns out to be good then remove one device at a time the try to boot up. Sometimes a bad cd-rom drive or harddrive can cause a problem. My best guess it is the power supply.

I unplugged the TV and held the buttons down and it continued to flash. I continued to hold down the two buttons and replugged it in again and it worked. TV back up and working.

Unplugged it. After looking for a new tv online I decided to try getting it to work. So, plugged it back in and held down the power button, a red light came on, held down the power button again and an orange light came on, held down power button again and green light came on and tv powered on. This was simply a case of trial and success!

unplug, hold power button, plug in. If that doesn't work, unplug all the HDMI cables, unplug the power, hold power button, plug back in.

Mod.Hp980PT, red and top green light flash, no heat


This is a very common feature on these types of simple, high-volume, low-cost home appliances known as a safety fault. This fault will temporarily (or permanently) disable the appliance and happens for several reasons: (1) an over-temp (high heat) occurrence, (2) an over-power (power surge) occurrence, (3) an under-power (power outage or trickle power) occurrence, (4) an over-time occurrence (auto-off fails), (5) a short-circuit occurrence (exposed/crossed/frayed wires, etc.). Fortunately, it uses a digital "fuse" system and can be reset by the user. However, there is no universal reset process on SoftHeat products so you just have to play with it until you figure it out (customer service dept is no help). Mine is a Kaz SoftHeat HP980PT, with a red power indicator/power-off button and 4 green heat setting buttons. Mine faulted after a heavy storm caused multiple power outages and power surges in my neighborhood. The green light on the highest heat setting button was flashing on mine. Here's how I fixed it: (1) unplugged both ends of power cord and straightened out the cord, then plugged back in to the heating pad end. (2) While holding down the flashing light button, I plugged back in to the wall outlet. (3) While still holding down the flashing light button, pressed and held down the red power-off button, then while still holding down the red power button, I released the flashing light button, followed by releasing the power-off button. This stopped the flashing green light and caused the red power indicator light to stay on (steady-on). It works fine now. Note: Some models have an actual hard fuse in addition to the digital fault feature or possibly only a simple fuse (without the digital fault system). These fuses can the found at many retail stores and then very easily replaced. I hope this helps some of you!!!

Looks like it could be a memory problem. You could check if one or both of your memory is damaged by removing one at a time. The manual should have the procedure for adding / replacing memory.

Monitor will not stay on


Generally Monitors have a single light in fron pannel, with dual mode colors as Green and Orange.

Green: Everything is OK .
Orange: Everything is OK, except it is not getting
any signals from computer or other source.

Try with any other monitor with your CPU, it may happen that CPU actually not providing any signal to Monitor. Try checking the "NUM LOCK" button on and off, whether it makes the light on keyboard to flash on or off.
If NUM LOCK is woking OK, there is surely some problme with your monitor and you need to get is checked physically with an engineer.

No power but ON button flashing


Quickest fix for this is probably to temporarily unplug the monitor power cord.

For your other outages, I assume the monitor is connected to a computer, make sure the operating system power-save features have not disabled the video output signal from the computer ... if so, monitor should re-activate when you use the mouse or hit a key on the keyboard.

If your computer has two video outputs, make sure the primary display hasn't been shifted to the other one ... try it by moving the LCD data cable to the other video connector on the computer.
