You need to open the case and see how many sticks of memory are in the slots. Your machine should come with 2GB. (probably 2 1-GB sticks)
If you are running a 32-bit system, it's useless to increase the memory above 3 GB, as the system will not see it. For a 64 bit system, you can add a lot more.

Go to the shop buy more. When you get back home open the side of the computer and replace with the new or add if you have enough slots.

RAM? You just open up your case and on the motherboard you will see two RAM sticks. Using an anti-static band take them out and put more back in.

If you mean your hard drive then just open up the case and unplug the HDD, replacing it with another one.

Gateway 5472 won't power up


You must register some sounds and usual noise from the case. If you consider that power supply works, try to unplug all unnesessary parts, and remain with CPU+Graphics+Memory. You are now closer to eliminate the current problem.

My GM5472 (AMD Chip) has been running very hot over the past few weeks - over 100 degrees C! I've cleaned the fans out and now have a fan leaning against the box, which keeps the temp down. Question is -...


-try adding additional fan in the casing -in adding fan make sure that you have a blower fan and a exhaust fan where in air can get in and out inside the case.
-add thermal paste/grease between the processor and the heat sink. it is often used to aid the processor's thermal or heat transfer via heat sink. -you can also add blower fan in the chipset of the motherboard -you can also add heatspreader in the memory. -check the power supply if you are getting enough power -having too much power may result in over heating and may damage the devices -having less power may result slow system and bad performance.

My computer Gateway model GM5472 was running a windows update and all of a sudden went blue screen then shut down. Would not come back on when turned power but on you just here some beeps. what should I...


Beeps signal a hardware failure. Disconnect all disks and remove all other boards and try to start the desktop like that - if you can't go into the BIOS then there is a problem with either the memory (try another one) , the processor (try another one) or the mainboard - in that case you will have to replace it.

Hello there,

we have many steps we can try to fix this problem but i also need to know if you get any type of screen at all ?

Starter steps

make sure you have the power button turned on To the Display

It is an option in the BIOS under "Advanced Bios Features". Set Initial Display to PCI Express VGA card. Your options may be slightly different due to different BIOS.
