    Bought my GT4022 9/29/06. Same sort of issue. Worked fine until a few weeks ago. I then had to reboot it several times from the power button before it would completely boot up. That lasted a day or two. Now it won't boot at all. Fan spins but monitor has "no input signal" displayed. Checked monitor on a difference pc and it's fine. Since I bought it at Best Buy I asked the Geek Squad and the rep said it sounded like the MB and not a power supply problem. They want $59 to diag it, and a few hundred to replace MB if that's the problem. I only spent $500 - $600 for it so I am not sure I see the point. Anybody else have this sort of trial with their GT4022? Goodbye Gateway!

    GT4022 won't boot. Not even at bios. I tried changing the power supply but I figure out that its not a power issue since the fan kicks in. I don't know what step to take. Anybody can help me out? I would really appreciated.

The Gateway GT4022 is known for having a loose North and Southbridge. Simply open the case, press down on the heatsinks covering the north and southbridges and it'll boot up the next time. Enjoy!

I have a GM5260 and the thing wouldn't start. Almost went out and bought a new machine because when it turned on just the fan would start but never slow down like it normally does to go into boot. I tried pushing on the 2 heat sinks and the did not feel lose at all. However it I tied it and the thing worked. May be some sort of christmas miracle but I'm back in business.

I had the same problem with my GT4022 fan spins but blue power led does not come on and no display. At first the problem was intermittent ( every couple of weeks) but occurred more frequently with time.


Took my power supply to local shop they tested it for free it was fine. Found replacement mother board for $150.00 at PC Factory Outlet. Changed MoBo, PC is now good as new. This appears to be a common problem with these PC's.

Did you try a new switch? I am no expert here but I believe you need a switch that makes contact for some period of time a
nd then breaks or opens when the computer has had power long enough to continue running on its own. I suppose by pulling the plug out then putting it back in you replicated this process. While it may well cost $325 to pull out and replace your mother board and I don't think that is terrible, do you want to spend that much on an older machine? For another $300 or $400 and maybe less if you shop hard you have a new machine. If your monitor and other accessories are good so much the better you can spend it all on the case and its contents. Sorry I can't offer more. And as far as I know spinning fans mean you have some power coming in but not much else. Try a switch first or maybe the shop did that?

The screen goes fuzzy because the video chip has failed. Since this is an onboard one you will have to replace either the motherboard or the entire pc if you don't know how to do that .

Try a different monitor (borrow one). If that doesn't work, you need to take it to the shop.

Could be a bad power supply in the computer. Most power supplies are pretty cheap these days. Open up the PC and see which version you need. Most lekely an ATX. Good Luck!

Gateway GT4022 Motherboard failed


Well, I think gateway is just a computer manufacturer, so if you are still under warranty, you could possibly get a replacement. But before doing anything, and if you are comfortable with doing so, open up the side of the casing, and take a look around, see if any cables seem unconnected.

Google motherboards. XD

Looks like your motherboard is actually pretty good. What do you need to replace it for?

Here's a good website: http://www.tigerdirect.com/
Click motherboards or motherboards with cpu included.
Another website, http://reviews.cnet.com/4566-3049_7-0.html?tag=dir gives you a list of motherboards and where to buy them.
Usually, motherboards under $100 are old or cheap.

If you need an exact copy of the one in your GT4022
this is your motherboard on gateway.com: http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/FIC/4006105R/4006105Rnv.shtml
just google that motherboard and you should be able to find an exact copy to buy.

do you still have your restore CD? try to fresh restore it and updates everything on that unit again. Often online gamers send you malicious script that crashes your system.
