I would suggest to check the capacitors that are filtering the 3.3 and 5 volts inside the main board. I've seen a number of PCs that failed because of defective capacitors.
Inspect these parts for bulging on the top or bottom.
Hope this helps.

I don't think it is the chip, or the motherboard, do you know if the hard drive is still good, cause if it isn't it will also cause this to happen.

Gateway all in one computer turns on no video


Just because the computer turns on, doesn't mean it's working. In fact, power may be running through your motherboard but data won't be.

In these cases, the motherboard is usually damaged and will need to be replaced.

If you have a series of beep codes, then it's either your processor, RAM, GPU, or something else. If there is no beep code, it's a damaged motherboard that needs replaced.

My gateway essential 400 cant run newer programs **** *** window 7... or explorer 8... or flashplayer 10... how can i upgrade my computer 2 make it run these programs ? a new hard drive ? or what do i do...


Hi,

You can add hard drive if your system doesnt have enough space for the new programs. If the new programs installs well but is running slow or not starting, then you will have to upgrade your RAM and for better performance, fix one graphics card suitable for *********** board. If you can spend more, Upgrade *********** board and processor.

Thanks

Serious problem


Hi bigciss22. That means that your computer is turning on but NO booting up. Do you hear any beeps? Because depending on the number of beeps can mean either memory or video card. Open the machine and verify that the memory is tightly inserted. If you use the video card on the motherboard (most likely) I suggest you buy a new video card (you have to make sure the interface is either AGP or PCI (i dont think it's PCIe - PCI express). If you dont want to start swaping components, you will have to take it to a repair shop. I hope this helps and please dont forget to rate my answer. Thank you! :D

Had a power surge... a of my external harddrives work; however, can't get either computer to power on... Gateway GT5654 or my wife's Gateway GT5408.. on my wife's motherboard, there is a green light......


You can get a powr supply for this, but if the surge went passed that and smoked the motherboard then your going to need to replace that as well but a new poer supply should shore this up and you can get them from frys.com,tigerdirect.com you be glad you did!

I have a gateway 835gm desk top


there are a number of things that could be wrong here, firstly reset the cmos on the motherboard, if you cannot find the cmos jumper then remove the battery for 10 minutes (make sure the power cord is removed from the back) press the on/off button a couple of times, this will drain any remaining power from the board and properly reset the cmos, while the battery is out remove the memory, clean the contacts and repace, put the battery back in and connect power, if the machine turns on, job done, if not then it could be something far more serious, check the power suppy if could be faulty, the processor may have blown or the motherboard itself may have blown, the only way to check all the components at once is to get a working motherboard which supports your processor type, the same model would be an advantage

Computer goes on but does not boot


When you start up the PC, do you get any kind of beep sound? If not, I would reckon the RAM modules are faulty and would need to be replaced first. That is the usual cause for this kind of issue. Also when replacing the modules, make sure they are the type supported by your motherboard, ie DDR, DDR2, etc. You will have to consult your m/b manual for this..

If the problem is not with the RAM, ie you hear a beep, but nothing else, I would guess that the MBR of your operating system is dysfunctional, which would mean that you would have to reinstall the operating system.

Hope that helps...

Cheers!
