What happened is your video card has burned out. If you are still using the video connection that is on your motherboard then what you need to do is go out and buy a new video card that will go into your pci slot inside your computer and then you'll connect your monitor to the new video card and your picture will be back up in no time.

Gateway 5228 wont boot no lights on keyboard


does it load the bios screen? Does it get to the windows load screens if it does go to the bios screen? Does the computer power on at all?

Sometimes what happens is the bios chip can be faulty or die and this will have to be replaced to fix the issue. If the computer is not powering on then it is more than likely a power supply issue.

(just in case, you might want to make sure that all of the adapters that come from the power supply are connected to the motherboard as well)

Check you bios configuration with Date and time correction.

My gateway gt 5228 has power boots up but I have no picture on monitor and the keyboard doesn't work. Both monitor and keyboard work on another computer. what is wrong with PC


First disconnect any external devices like printers etc that you might have plugged in.
If that doesn't work then it's a problem inside the box it can be the power supply ,motherboard ,memory ,CPU and others.
If the PC has warranty then you should take it back.
If you are comfortable in opening your computer then we could try more advanced troubleshooting ,let me know if you want to try it.

Gateway GT5228 booting problem


"Also after I try to turn it on after a couple of unsuccessful tries, it actually boots and the machine works fine". This maybe cause by the hardware problem. And it usually caused by the motherboard. Changing the motherboard unit may solve the problem. But make sure you've already done the basic test on all of your hardware before changing it with a new one.

My computer problem


Remove and refit memory sticks, as you mention no beeps, so the memory may need re seating. From there it could be a processor or bios fault not starting up thr first 64KB of memory to boot windows
