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)

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.

Boot into safe mode and see if you can either roll back the driver restore the computer to the date right before you downloaded it.  the link is for directions on how to boot into safe mode.   Another option , if you have on board graphisc alos is to hook up the monitor to the onboard  turn it on in BIOS and change the driver for the card using the onther graphics.

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.
