    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 battery continues to charge if the computer is off. The computer probably won't turn on because the battery is so low. It might not be charging because the power cord might not be plugged into a wall plug that is on. The plug might be on a switch. Find a plug that you know for sure that is on then plug it in there and try again.

Have you checked if the hard drive is being recognized on Bios? If it is not, try changing the power cord or pushing it in and pay attention to see if it rotates... Sometimes when you push power cord into hard drive it would start.

Help me


You can try resetting the cmos/bios by unplugging the power cord. Open the case. Find the battery mounted on the board. Use a flat tip screw driver & lift out the battery. (About the size of a quarter). Wait about 15 seconds & pop the battery back onto the board. Plug you're power cord back in & power on the PC. If the system still does not boot, re-check all data & power connections for solid connection. Remove you're memory & firmely reseat. Try again. Still no? Replace power supply.
If the system still does not start & or gives no beeps, no LED lights & no fans power up. Than you're board is most likely dead. (So hate giving out bad news)
